This is a slideshow of images captured Jan. 20, 2012 starting about 2:55 p.m.

A juvenile eagle visited the nest and after looking around for several minutes began to rearrange the sticks in the nest.

About 3:07 p.m., the juvenile reacted to something nearby and flew onto a branch next to the nest. It appeared that an adult eagle was nearby and soon after, two adult eagles landed in the nest and the juvenile flew away.

After spending less than one minute in the nest, the adult eagles began to rearrange the sticks which the visitor had just moved around.

The female remained in the nest while the male perched on a nearby branch.
