Yesterday, I had another opportunity to check on the status of an active eagles nest on the Potomac River. As you can see from the images in this blog article, the two eaglets are well and growing rapidly. If you check my blog article from a few weeks ago, you can see the eaglets when they were newly hatched and covered in soft, downy feathers.
I timed it right to watch the adult eagle feed a freshly caught fish to the eaglets. In addition to taking photographs, I also shot videos, one of which is below.
Notice that the video ends with “Produced for Protected Places Media.” Protected Places Media (www.protectedplacesmedia.com) is a not-for-profit business formed by my close friend, Ernie Sears, and me to use our passion for nature photography and videography to support non-profit organizations working to conserve our natural world and to positively impact environmental and conservation issues. Protected Places Media also produces a quarterly e-magazine (ezine), CPWToday, in support of the Prince William Conservation Alliance.
