It Turns Out, I Can Be Wrong

A bald eagle pair perches above Canvasback Lake at Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge in Ridgefield, Washington

This bald eagle pair has been courting at Ridgefield each spring but I always assumed they nested elsewhere. Apparently not. I had never seen a bald eagle nest before — it was massive. The two youngsters rested while their parents kept a watchful eye from a nearby tree. The young eagles looked pretty big, I suspect they’ll fledge soon, but I could be wrong. Again.
