Since that day, the eagle has nested in a tree above Slade’s house, and is often seen with another smaller eagle who Slade believes is her mate. They’ve returned to the same spot each year — and have even introduced their son to him.
“Over the course of the next few months, mostly during winter, I’d see them very often,” Slade said. “Bonnie and Clyde would hang in the yard sometimes. Then one day, I saw a third one swoop down and he still had a brown head, so I knew it had to be their young kid.”
