Bald Eagles!

I heard about some nesting Bald Eagles about 5 minutes from my home in East Windsor, so I decided to take a look.  The large nest made it easy to spot!  These pictures are really cropped as they were quite aways away from the edge of the road.  I didn't trepass into the field, but opted to sit in the grass at the edge of the field.  I was really hoping to see the mate return to the nest and possibly see some interaction between the two eagles, but after about an hour, all I got to see was the mate do a fly by with what looked like a fish in its talons....hard to tell in the picture, but clear through my binoculars.
