Good to be home again. The dogs went crazy, jumping and racing around when they saw me get out of the car. One of my first walks after returning from Germany was to check in on the Bald Eagle nest, wondering whether there were any hatchlings yet. But all I saw was an adult sitting on a dead snag nearby. The nest appeared to be unoccupied, but it's really too deep to tell for sure.
Its plumage looks kind of worn. It's wearing leg bands but is too far away to make out any inscription.
