You could say this is a bird’s eye view .. The Bald Eagle might be looking down at Ian while he looks up at one huge nest. Bald Eagles can see three or four times farther than people – better for hunting & survival. “On a perfectly warm fall day – I took this photo near Whitecourt and the mighty Athabasca River. Check out the Bald Eagle’s nest!”
DID YOU KNOW? The Bald Eagle is Canada’s largest bird of prey and its nest is the largest of any bird in North America. On average it is 1 to 2 metres across and about 1 metre high. Up high is where they like to build their nests: in old growth forests, on cliffs, and as you can see above - they will even nest in conifers, especially pines. Momma lays her eggs in April/May and about 16 weeks later – first flight!
