"I was right, there are two of them! Instead of one being a juvenile, I now believe they are a pair, as female bald eagles are about 25% larger. Maybe there are eaglets and that’s why we don’t usually see them together as one hunts for the family and one stays to take care of the chicks.
We had over 50 cormorants or shags suddenly appeared at Little Pond just a few days ago. I hope they didn’t eat all the fish as the bald eagles didn’t find any fish this morning. I wonder where their nest is? Maybe we can ask an expert to make sure they have food?"
