Nesting Eagles at Muse Winery

We just got these great shots from photographer Kay Steer who was visiting Muse Winery just a few weeks ago.  This photo of one of the parents in the nest next to the vineyard was so wonderful we wanted to share it with everyone!  The eagles are visible from the Bistro terrace and are constantly flying back and forth to the nest.  We don't know how many eaglets yet but we're watching...

Thanks for sending these along for us to share Kay!
