I was at Quiet Waters today about 4pm. With my spotting scope I saw both adult eagles, 1 on the nest and one in a nearby tree.
3 chicks were also visible (3 distinct bobbing heads and bodies) in the nest. I observed activity for about 30 minutes. There are 3 chicks.
I was at Quiet Water Park today from 10am to 11 am. I saw 2 adult eagles in nearby trees. Getting closer to the nest I saw 3 young ones in the nest, moving around. One eaglet appears darker in color and a little larger that the other 2. I watched for about 1 hour (hoping one adult would return with food). The mountain bike trail users did not appear to disturb the birds.
At Quiet Waters Park today I observed the 2 adult eagles, one on the nest continually and 1 off and on the nest. The eaglets were fed, and 2 were up very eager to eat. After I got closer I did see the third eaglet moving in the nest. It was at the opposite side. The three eaglets were verified in a conversation with the park naturalist.
I observed the Bald Eagle nest at Quiet Waters Park yesterday 3/17/15 for about 45 minutes. I saw three
eaglets in and around the nest. Two were out on different branches very close to the nest, at the same time and the other stayed in the nest and moved around. They appear to be about the size of a vulture and are dark in color. No adult was seen while I was there. All three seem to be active.
Today 3/19/15 I saw all the eagles/eaglets at the nest. Both adults were on separate trees , one on each side of the nest.
The 3 eaglets were active. Two were branching and one of those was flexing his wings and lifted himself several inches off the branch. The third eaglet was standing in the bowl of the nest. I observed the birds in my spotting scope, and shared the view with several "mountain bikers" and a park representative.
