Clever indeed, Linus!
In this next set of photos, they are still hiding!

This was on July 31st. I stopped on my way from work because I could hear both eaglets, up the road a little way from the nest.
Between the obstacles (a cliff at my feet...), the sun in my face and their own gift for invisibility, I never saw them!
They had to be within 30 feet of me.
After trying from every possible angle, I found their Mom! Because of the cliff, we were eye to eye.

In the first photo, her beak is pointing to where her eaglets are. They are hidden by a huge tree trunk on the left of the photo. They were screeping away until she silenced them with one of those "huck-huck" calls.

Now she's looking straight at me.







Blink!
