Eagle baby!

First baby pics for the 2013 eagle nesting season. I'm not sure if there's more than one at this point. Last year, I didn't find out for sure until both babies fledged. I would see one or the other but not both at the same time. I circled the little fluff ball in both of these photos. You can see the little guy's black beak sticking up above the nest in the first photograph. The gray fluff will be replaced with dark feathers all over. They don't get their characteristic white heads and tails until they're about 5 years old.

Papa has been sticking very close to the next and staying disguised.
