As promised, here are a couple of more photos from Bernie St. George. What they have in common is youth:
Bernie says he took this picture of a juvenile eagle on their 150-year-old white pine at the St. George homestead on Beauregard Lake in Douglas County, Wis.
This second photo from Bernie is decidedly not a bird, but I found it too cute to resist.
This baby snapper was one of 13 he watched on their way to the lake, Bernie reports.
