Pembroke Pines is the city I live in and just about two miles from my house, there is a huge nest built by a pair of bald eagles who have taken residence there in a wooded area for a number of years. Come December the pair meets, revitalize the nest and care for two or possibly three eggs following a successful copulation. The incubation period is shared by both parents. In this picture, the mother rests on the eggs for warmth and protection, while the male is away looking for food and more wooden branches to consolidate the nest. The waiting time to capture great picture of the eagle can easily exceeds two or more hours. So far, this year my attempts have not yet been too successful, but it is just a matter of time before I can share that with you.
