Interesting Morning

When I got to the eagles nest before sunrise two of the eaglets were out of the nest on branches. One pretty far out further than a hop would take it. When the male brought in a fish later the eaglet on the right had hopped back in the nest already. The eaglet that was further out on the branch on the left made a mistake and fly hopped to a lower branch. Then it took it about 45 mintutes of fly hopping to finally get up the nerve to fly back up to a higher branch. Finally flying up and getting wind blown back in to the nest. It took it about an hour to get back to the nest. The two eaglets in the nest by then had eaten there fill. Not sure if the last eaglet back to the nest got much of a meal or not. It was interesting watching the eaglet try and figure out how to get back to the nest. Or get the courage…

    Love the photo-story of the eaglet far out on the branch. It made me smile. I guess every being has a hard time when it’s the first time it needs to move on its own. A great story in those photos.
    I like your photos of the baby herons too, to say nothing of yesterday’s young foxes!
    Your “want to” seems to be back; if not, you are doing a great job in hiding that it’s not back. MCS

      Mary S,
      Glad you enjoyed the pics and story today. Still not feeling the desire as I usually do. May just be adjusting to the humidity. Many years I have a June swoon as my wife calls it. Thank You…

    I really enjoyed your story of the eaglets and your pictures were great as usual. I met you at the eagle’s nest on Tuesday morning. Looks like they have become much braver in the last couple off days.
    I love the pictures of the heron’s nest, too. I’ve never seen baby herons. These are great. Your photos are very inspiring.

      Teresa,
      Glad you enjoyed them. It was nite to meet ya’ll. We live in a wonderful area to observe wildlife. Thank You for the compliments…

  3. It looks like the eaglets are ready to go and maybe the herons won’t be far behind!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      Probably start leaving the nest tree in this week or next. Still likely to be nearly a month before they leave the nest tree area…
