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. The ezine can be read at: www.cpwtoday.com Check out CPWToday and subscribe to be alerted when we issue each quarterly ezine.
Great pictures! I like the video too.
Greetings from Kee here.
Your active photography work always inspire me. The newest uploading on the Potomac’s Eagle photography and video is very nice. I enjoyed the video, especially very much.
I don’t have a very long lens but I would like to venture out there to see this eagle nest along the Potomac river soon, and wondering if you could let me know the direction to the location.
Sorry for all the trouble but I thank you very much.
Have a great day.

Great coverage of the feeding scene and YES… they are growing FAST! I’m still picturing them from your last pix where they seemed small and fragile. Look forward to the next installment 🙂
