Llano Eagles 2014

This evening we went back to Llano to get a glimpse of the 2014 batch of eaglets at the nest east of town. We were expecting to only see the parents sitting on eggs so were surprised to see two eaglets peeking up. On-line feedback suggests that they are a couple of weeks old.

Here is one of the parents ... no, I can't tell the sexes apart on bald eagles. All shots taken with Canon SX-50 HS.

An after the changing of the guard, the eaglets pop up.  First one, then a second. I don't know why, but we both thought the second one look like sock puppets.

Eventually, the sun set and we were treated to a view of the gibbous Venus setting through the branches over the nest as one parent settles back down. Who says bird and astronomical photography can't be combined into one activity.
