A few days ago, a pair of bald eagles appeared in one of the recently vacated osprey nests on the edge of Barnegat Bay, (Ocean County) New Jersey. As seen from a few hundred yards offshore, they apparently were playing ‘one up-manship,’ although I have no idea of what their gender was. (?!) For the captions, the “wife” is initially in the nest, with the “husband” on the perch.
Thanks for viewing, and comments are always welcome 🙂

Fantastic captures, M! The series is wonderful, and your captions perfect!
Thanks, Maggie. M 🙂
Very few speak Eagle . . . Nice photos.
Id like to believe I’ve recently learned the eagle sign, mannerism and verbal language (?) but there is a incredible “bird-linguist” and conservationist, (Thats not a typo, I mean like in the NJ Conserve Wildlife Organization) who has covered the area shore birds remarkably in his site: exit63.wordpress.com M 🙂
Neat site; thanks.
Love your captions!! What a wonderful find. I’ve seen them close up at rescue meetings but yet to see one in nature. They are just beautiful and I was amazed how big they are the first time I saw one.
Thanks for the comment, Judy. They are impressive, their wing span enormous as seen close up. M 🙂
Great pics. Glad to see. Love the captions
Haha…love this M. Great photos and love the very last one…all forgotten and onto the next thing. Great post 🙂
Thanks. Right spot, right subjects – a lot of good luck. It’s funny, I almost believe the captions I hear in my head. The patient, non-chalant expression of the “wife,” after the “husband” ‘tries to scare her, and he gallantly walks over and flies up to the left perch – is absolutly precious. M 🙂
Gorgeous photos and text which You added to photos – good combination.
Thanks. I was fortunate to capture that series. When reviewing them, their personalities just popped into my head! M 🙂
your eagleeze is very good & smashing photos 🙂
Great photos of our Eagles antics
Saw your post on exit63. Jim V is a
super wild life photographer
that I have followed
for a very long time.
Glad to have found another gifted
lover of our birds.
Thanks Grandby2, and thanks for viewing. I agree, Jim’s photographs are remarkable, almost without exception. He certainly is an inspiration for those always trying to reach the capture bar. M 🙂
