Ron Fischer of Grand Forks has taken literally thousands of photos of the bald eagle nest near East Grand Forks. He photographed these two juveniles in the nest July 16. Monday night's storm blew the nest to the ground, and two of the juveniles have been seen close to the fallen nest. Observers speculate the third juvenile was old enough to fly away from the nests with the adults before the storm hit, and all three juveniles and both adults are believed to have survived.
