Today our middle eaglet is five weeks old. That means the oldest turned five on Monday and Spirit will turn five this coming Saturday. Before we move on I do want to thank Klaus Kleinfeld for his heartfelt comments posted here yesterday. It was clear from your comments that he really connected with all of you.
Today I wanted to update a couple of things people have been asking about. First, the tree holding the nest is a cottonwood tree. It was mistakienly identified previously as an oak. The nest is about 80-85 feet above the ground. I am posting a few pictures here that show you the tree and where the nest is located and a couple of shots of the parents and where they sit sometimes when they are not in view of the camera or if they are just sailing by to check on things.
