A nesting pair of Osprey Eagles has built its nest in an ancient pine tree along the Colonial Parkway near Jamestown, Virginia.
The sculptural form of this tree always grabs my attention as we drive past. I’ve photographed it many times in different seasons and in different light.
We were delighted to find the eagles and their nest today, in the top of the tree.
Both eagles came and went as we watched, always returning with something clutched in their beak.
Sometimes returning with a wiggling fish, other times with a branch to expand the nest.
They are a busy young parents, on top of the world, with a hungry family to care for.
