The eaglets have landed…at Kipp Island

Recreation enthusiasts and nature-lovers alike have been watching the eagle nest on Lake Wallenpaupack closely all season. Visible now are the two dark brown eaglets in the nest, who are testing out their wing flaps at the nest’s edge and could be experiencing their first flight any time now. If timed right, the lucky observer will see the adult eagles (with the white heads and tails) bringing a fishy snack back to the nest to feed their growing offspring.

Note the restricted area, indicated by buoys and a roped-off perimeter…all for the safety and protection of our nation’s symbol. Access to Kipp Island is restricted during the nesting season, which runs from January 1 through July 31.

I continue to wonder if the million dollar fish became lunch for the eagles… hmmmm…

Georgean Musanti caught a picture of this one right before a tasty treat.

    -Hope this works-I took this picture of this handsome eagle on Marina Way in the Escape about 2 weeks ago. He was anxiously waiting for me to finish snapping his picture(with my cell phone no less) so he could swoop down and grab a dead squirrel from the road!!
