Yesterday, February 20, 2015, for the first time, a series of photographs were taken of a family of bald eagles who live on the Red River at Journeys End Ranch. We have seen the eagles’ nests in the trees, and have seen the eagles themselves flying about, but could not get a photo, until now.

These photos were taken by John Morton, who along with his wife Leigh Taylor Young, were in from Los Angeles to visit Carol and me. John, Leigh and Carol were walking on the river in the late afternoon.

The Eagles’ nest was high in a tree, which can be seen in the following photograph. There was no sign of any Eagles in or around the nest.

The next, in a closer view, is the next, a substantial structure. Of course, Eagles are large birds.
