This is one of those unusual series of photos that just deserves to be posted. For weeks I had a widget for this nest on the sidebar to my blog.
The eaglet at Berry College has fledged and now only visits the nest for some meals and at times at night to sleep. Since leaving the nest for the first time last week the young female eagle has been tormented by blue jays. While they are a pretty bird (there were many of them around when I was a boy back in Hancock, Wisconsin) there are far fewer on the Madison isthmus.
For the eagle just starting her way in the world, as the pics show, she can not find peace even when eating. All in all a most unusual situation.
