New Jersey - Baldies

Working away again in New Jersey during recent 100 degree heatwave, I took a late evening stroll from my hotel and chanced upon this nest with two fully grown juvenile Bald Eagles. I must say I wasn't expecting these within half a mile of my hotel and Interstate 1. I photographed them at the nest from the road in harsh light and then I popped back in the early morning to find one of the birds sat on the roof of a local house and then as I was walking back it landed in a tree above where I was standing - It seemed intrigued in me with and what I was doing with my 400mm and I wasn't complaining!

Bombus ruderatus

A national rarity in my garden. Large Garden Bumble Bee - male of the dark form apparently.

Owl Activity

Single BO active at 9pm last evening and also a Little Owl - my first up the lane this year.
