Yesterday, Saturday the 5th of December, I went on a field trip with fellow Texas Master Naturalist, Kristi Thomas. Kristi also publishes her photographs on this website as well as writing a blog here. She is an outstanding photographer and a great contributor to this website.
She had also invited members of NETFO (Northeast Texas Field Orinthologists - http://members.tripod.com/netfo_tx/) for an event at Lake O' the Pines. Part of the trip included a boat ride to observe water birds and visit a nesting location for Bald Eagles.
Seeing the eagles and their nest was a treat and we have had some minor discussion about the eagle's nest in our talk forum - http://easttexasnaturalists.com/forum/bird-sightings/45-bald-eagles-nest-on-lake-o-the-pines.html. One of the things we talked about was the location of the nest.
