I'd like to see one or both birds isolated more from the surroundings.

The fall colors make an excellent background. What is the status of your eagle population in the area?

@JDArt ... already cropped pretty tight. Not much detail as is. They are far away on an island. Can't get any closer without a boat. I don't have lenses to get good shots.

@UgashikBob ... as a boy, there were NO eagles here. Whether they were introduced or followed road kill carcasses here like 'they' say the coyotes have, we now have a decent population. It is sustained and growing. I know of several nests within 10 miles of home. I still get the shivers watching them lock talons and spiral down when mating season comes around. Awesome birds!

That's a really big nest, they must be a well-to-do couple.

Nice shot. They are a fascinating bird. Here is some info on their nests:

"Nests used for multiple years may reach enormous dimensions. Bald eagle nests are among the largest nests of all birds; Typical size is 5-6 feet in diameter and 3 feet tall! Famous Ohio nest used for 34 years measured almost 9 feet in diameter, close to 12 feet tall, and weighed over 2 tons! Record St. Petersburg, Florida nest was 9.5 feet in diameter and 20 feet tall!"
