Eagle nursery monitor

Mama eagle was taking a break in the tree right above the nest. Taking breaks is easy to understand when you see how big her youngster already has grown. We heard a baby or babies in the nest. 
I only saw one chick and that was while I was editing these photographs. He blended in with the nest so well, I didn't see him while I was shooting. Mama talked to them, then flew over to check on them.

Youngster is circled.

She was there for a short time, then flew back to her perch within view of the nest. She scanned the sky for intruders and probably wondered where her mate was with tonight's dinner.
