This is one of the bald eagle nests along the Delaware River. In it were three young that are three to four weeks old. Two of them were visible when this image was captured last May. An average clutch for a bald eagle nest is two offspring, and records show that the majority of young produced from nests on the Delaware River survive past fledge from year to year.

It’s the middle of winter, and you’re probably not thinking now about  invasive species. Then again, it’s hard to forget clearing thickets of Japanese barberry or treating hemlocks for wooly adelgid, if you’ve ever had to do these tasks.
