"WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT"

American Bald Eagle (Male & Female) - 9 Photos

 

Further to the blog, "Feathered Royalty" of February 18 , 2022, I decided to combine the two remaining blogs into this one. (The sun was slowly coming round the tree where the eagles were perching, hence the combination of back light & side light.)

 

As mentioned previously,  I discovered the male Bald Eagle of the pair, sitting on one of his favourite branches overlooking the river. Took some shots and then from the south, came a second adult which landed close to him on the same branch. Going by some general knowledge, the female American Bald Eagle is generally one-third larger than the male. 

 

Some lovely eagle chatter ensued (Photo #5) and then the two just hung out together for approximately 20 minutes. The male then flew off and fifteen minutes the female followed, unfortunately away from me.

 

So here we have some photos of the gorgeous female Bald Eagle (Photo #1 to Photo #4 ). Photo #5 to Photo #8  are of the pair side by side. Photo #5 is the female doing that endearing eagle chatter.

 

Photo #9 is of the male in flight after he completed a fly-by.

 

American Bald Eagles mate for life and still court/re-declare their vows each year. And last weekend, I saw one of the pair heading toward the nest with nesting material. Hopefully, young eaglets will soon be on the way! :)

Ah, we've got a loving couple...
Wonderful photos technically and spiritually. Their chatter is charming. I tired to film it, but they didn't "talk" long enough.

Super series, just what we need on a dreary day! The chatter photos are very expressive. Congratulations!
