This eagle’s nest (aerie) is about 60 feet up in a tall tree. The nest is huge, at least 4 feet in diameter. In order to get an angle which allowed me to see the eaglet pop his head up I had to get about 200 yards away. The photo is extremely zoomed in so is not really sharp. This nest is on the Arkansas River near Tulsa.

Update: This is not really a young eagle, but actually one of the parents probably tending an egg. Here is a video which shows the same nest with the mom and dad changing places.
