I captured a good profile of Mom to pair with a profile of Dad from last week so you can see the differences. Most birds tend to have very obvious differences between males and females, possibly due, I think, to the courtship process…the males have to stand out. In the case of Bald Eagles, the males and females mate for life, so, in my opinion, they don’t have to have the same differences. Totally unscientific stab-in-the-dark guess based on observation and common sense. I could be totally off base, though, so ask the experts before passing that along.
It was a busy night in the nest last night and this morning. I happened to be up all night for other reasons, so I was able to capture a lot of good shots from the Eaglecam. I added some descriptions to the photos themselves this time. Enjoy!
