Bald eaglets

We were excited to see a young eaglet sitting on the edge of a nest in a tree along the Mississippi River.  A second eaglet could be seen lower in the nest, stretching its wings.  Eventually one of the parents came back to the tree and sat in the shadow of a branch above them, dutifully keeping watch before settling back into the nest.
