“Photos for Jan 24”

With the camera feed down here's a few images from the nest late this morning.

You can see the male eagle sitting in the nest. He's busy forming the nest cup, shaping the soft pine straw with his breast and his beak. The female is perched close by keeping a watch.
In the last photo - both eagles are keeping a close eye on something overhead. Many birds use the skies in and around the Norfolk Botanical Gardens- including raptors (even other bald eagles). Whatever it was didn't seem to bother them much and they returned to resting.
