Eagles

Here is a photo of an eagle nest high in a pine tree on the shore of Norway Lake in Minnesota.  An eagle nest is called an eyrie.  Bald eagles use the same nest every year.  They repair the nest and add new twigs, grass, moss, & feathers each season.  One of our greatest cabin pleasures is to watch these nests from the lake each summer.  On this day we were able to observe this protective eagle guarding the nest for several hours.  Finally after loudly calling out to his or her mate, the eagle flew away to take a much deserved break!  We are hoping to see some eaglets in a month or so.
