A few more photos of the same nest, taken June 28th.

An adult flew in and landed in a nearby tree, with the crows harassing it.

I visited the new nest again this evening and saw the 2 eaglets in the nest flapping and jumping. One flapped up to a branch above the nest and back down into the nest; then went up and down a 2nd time. The 2nd eaglet stayed in the nest and watched its sibling Grin

My family member who told me about this nest said she saw 1 of the eaglets in a nearby tree about a week ago and it made it back to the nest safely. She saw 1 of the eaglets sitting on the fence behind her building the other day. Last night I saw both adults perched in the nest tree above the nest and both eaglets screeping in the nest. One of the adults flew down into the nest and was feeding the eaglets. It later flew off and I didn't see where it went. The other adult, who I think was the female, was perched above the nest the entire time I was there. One of the eaglets flew up to a branch above the adult just before I left.

Taken from the side of the building.
