Bald Eagles near Indianapolis, In

I visited one of my favorite places today. Only a few miles from my home, and less than 10 miles south of Indianapolis there is a stretch of the White River that is the home to a pair of Bald Eagles. The nest has been in the tall sycamore tree for 5 years now. Each year the pair has raised at least two chicks. Above, the male guards the nest from a nearby perch.
The nest was built almost as if the pair wanted to be viewed and photographed. This view is from across a narrow oxbow of the White River.
Male and female eagles greet each other from the guard perch. Today I was unable to catch a decent shot of the chicks, but viewed two of them as the parents called from above.
