Eagles happy on the James River

We saw one baby eagle at first, hoped for two, and finally spotted three in the nest closest to our home. near the James River.

They don't seem bashful when we walk the trail near their nest.

They usually "fledge" and fly away on or near Memorial Day weekend. So they are on schedule--in spite of a warmer than average nesting period.

Also spotted one baby when we anchored in Mill Creek, VA, last week!
