I’ve been paddling down to watch the 2 young Bald Eagles since June. Up until yesterday I always found them high in white pines within sight of their nest. August 17th was the first day they ventured farther, to a heron nest about a mile from the eagle nest. (Herons left it weeks ago.) We sometimes spot the adult Bald Eagle, sometimes near the young, often not. I’ve been reporting to eBird faithfully.
