She didn't stay long. So, with no eagles in sight, I started checking the towers down S. Independence Blvd. Nothing there, so on a whim, I drove to the nest. And.....there was an eagle on the tree who turned out to be HK.
He flew also, which is not that unusual. I was only able to take 4 photos.
After an hour or so, an eagle turned up back on the cell tower. But this one was HK. I was actually parked too close to see his feet at first, so I am grateful to my friend Linda, who was also there, and confirmed the id.
It was very windy, and HK had a hard time staying perched.
When HK started vocalizing, I knew something was about to happen!
Suddenly, HK lifted effortlessly off the tower! Needless to say, I was pretty happy how this photo turned out.
HK hopped up behind her. They faced into the wind...like weather vanes. That's Sterling on the left, HK on the right.
And that's how I left them at 12:46pm. Simply a beautiful encounter, despite the wind and cloudy sky.
