Bald Eagles Guarding Nest In San Diego.

These two bald eagles are nesting in a bare tree off Highway 76 near Lake Henshaw in the backcountry of San Diego County. This photo was taken on Thursday afternoon, March 20th, over the noon hour. The two raptors remained in the same position the entire time I was there, about 45 minutes. A very cool experience on a day off from work. (Click and zoom on photo to see the eagles more clearly. The second eagle is on the bottom branch to the right of the main trunk. I couldn't get closer than a few hundred yards due to a barbed wire fence and a sign warning of prosecution of trespassers. I suspect a trespassing conviction would be a bad thing for keeping my license to practice law. Time to buy a telephoto lens!)
