Bald Eagle feeding young

Signs of spring are everywhere. Not only are migrating warblers showing up in my back yard, this weekend there was also a Hermit Thrush, a Fox Sparrow and a White-crowned Sparrow. None of them had been here a day before, and they will likely soon move on toward their summer territories. Then at the Willamette River today I watched a female Bald Eagle feeding at least one tiny eaglet tidbits torn off of something dead beside them in the nest. The photo was taken through my spotting scope from about 1/4 mile away.
