Photos from a Windy Night

cb night shot2The hatched chicks first night in the nest was a windy one.

Duke Farms’ Charles Barreca took these images — thanks to the new cam’s infra-red feature.

Writes Charles: “Note the female has very ruffled feathers. Apparently around 7-8 p.m. she almost got blown out of the nest by 50 mph winds.  (Thanks, Charles!)

    Thanks for the images Charles. Thanks for sharing with us Jim. I thought about these and the others in our area as the wind howled last night. It was pretty fierce for a while. Glad to see they are all OK this morning at DukeFarms.

    it is good to know that something that appears to be quite vulnerable, the eagles’ nest (do we use the term eyrie or aerie?) is really quite sturdy.
