WE SEE YOU! – The Marsh Lake eagle nest is seen this week. The chicks, about 10 weeks old, are not yet flying. The female is seen with the young. The parents aren’t spending much time with the chicks at this point. They merely stop by from time to time to bring food or sit in a nearby tree. Photo by TERRY SCHEEL
