Description: Bald eagle sitting on nesting sight. The nest weighs about 1800 pounds. The tree fell soon after this picture was taken. This nest was used by many mating eagles over the years and was once used by geese to raise a family. The picture was taken from a moving vehicle because I was not allowed to stop. It was mating season. Soon after the picture was taken, the mate returned and they were activily mating.
