Wow! This weekend the eaglets were thrilling! We headed out just before Saturday suppertime to see them and it looked like they were too enjoying some supper.
One then flew off leaving its sibling squawking in the nest.
We hung around waiting to see if it would also fly, but it seemed to be exercising its voice rather than its wings. We were happy that we got to see them again and headed back for the night. The next morning we headed out again and again there was only one in the nest. This time it was looking wishful and then we watched as it took to the sky!
We don’t know if this was its first flight, but it sure seemed like a possibility.
We couldn’t believe our eyes and it flew virtually right over our heads!
What a sight! It made flying look so easy.
However it seemed a little unsteady as it landed next to its sibling.
It then looked back at the nest and studied the distance it had just flown. I am not sure if that expression says “Help! What have I just done!” or “Wow! I just flew that far!”
That is where we left them – discussing their next move… although they seemed to be taking their time in actually making it!
