Time Moves On

Aug032015SunriseAfter watching a brilliant sunrise I wondered to the river. Then decided to check on the eaglets at the Kentucky Sheriff’s boys and girls ranch. It has been about a month since I checked on them. My timing was good I think as it appeared the adults led them away from the nesting area this morning. The three eaglets got a tiny bite to eat from one adult then perched together away from the nest. An adult possibly both adults it was hard to tell flew back and landed away from them. Then would fly a short ways away when the eaglets followed. This continued until the eaglets all headed through a gap that leads to a nearby backwater area near the state tree farm. I returned home thinking the adults are leading them to this place to learn to hunt on there own. Time will tell as others and maybe I will go back by the nesting area again to see if they have returned. I think however it is time for them to move on. I have read that the adults will spend at least four months working with the eaglets to teach them to hunt. It has been a long and good season observing these eagles. Something I never imagined I would have the opportunity to do…
