Had to do some work at the ranch so decided to pack in and see if the Golden Eagle had a nest this spring again. Well, it looks like she has one for sure. I'm a canyon away and took the picture through a large park and I am about the same level as the nest. If you look left of mom you will see a dead rabbit prairie dog or some bird that she feeds her little one with. Long pack it but a great 5 hours spent.

Sure can't beat or match the beauty of mother nature.

Great pic.
Do they normally only raise one offspring?


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

One or two is all I have ever seen and that is what they say they have. Two years ago, she had two.

I have never been around goldens nesting. I was around lots of Bald Eagles in the Aleutians. They nested on the cliffs. Depending on where they were sometimes it was easy to see what they had for chicks. Nice pictures.

Very cool. How much distance do you estimate you were away?

^ In the ballpark of 3/4 mile plus. I also use my phone to zoom it in. That magnifies it again after I'm dialed in tight with spotting scope.

The mating rituals of the Golden start early in February. I like to follow their rituals of mating and their preparations/repairing of nest with the anticipation of an eaglet coming soon. The egg or eggs of this one was laid mid-March time frame.

They grow fast and furious and by mid to late August they will be taking to the air.

The way she is sitting on that nest, bet she is still setting on an egg. Very few times, when Iíve observed eagle family's, were there less than two chicks, but then, anything is possible!

I do believe there is one more also. In observation through the years, I have only seen 2 eaglets a couple of times and all other years just one. I have pictures of them for ~ 15 years now. Maybe this is a first with two or more.
