Banding Day

Today was banding day at the local eagle nest. This year there is only one eagle in the nest.

Dad on the nest before the banding team arrived.

Climber entering the nest, eaglet had this surprise look. Note all the flies.

Based on the age of the eaglet with a weight of 7 1/2 pounds and the shape of the beak Bill Davis thought is eaglet is a female. The eagle was banded with a MA. State band “D6” and a Federal band “0066”
