Llano Texas Eagles Nest…

It has been awhile since I’ve been able to wander over towards Llano and see how the Eagles are doing. They have been nesting near there for quite a few years. I found they’ve moved the nest a little down the road but to my joy the nest is a little closer to the road (for all of us photographers out there this is wonderful).Llano Texas Eagle 6, © Copyright 2012, Robert D.

It can take a little patience while you’re out there watching. Nothing interesting may happen for awhile – but sometimes you get lucky.

Momma and Daddy flew off and we were all wondering why they would leave the babies alone for so long. After about 45 minutes lunch was being servied in the nest.

Watching a Bald Eagle in the wild is fascinating. I don’t have as much luck fishing as these birds did (though I enjoy it) and I couldn’t help but to be inspired. What a joy to spend a morning watching these magnificent birds.

I’m told the babies will fledge around the first week of March – then one can only hope the Eagles return to nest again next year.  It’s wonderful having such a sight within driving distance.  You sort of adopt them and find yourself going out there to check on them.

Thank you for stopping by. If you’re ever near Llano, Texas the nest is outside the city limits on Hwy 29. Enjoy!

Peace, Love, and God Bless America,

    Beautiful eagle pics…

    I’m glad to see that you’re still blogging.

    I’ve been thinking about your photos, and finally made the effort to come see if you were still posting.

    Thank you so much! — Yes I’m still blahging but not as much as I’d REALLY like to. Need a vacation.
    I’ll have to visit your site and post some more photos soon. How are you? I hope you’re doing well.
