“Two Have Fledged!”
The two oldest eaglets have been edging further and further out on the branches surrounding the nest. Two days ago these intrepid eaglets were mobbed by crows, driving them back to the nest. The parents have been feeding their brood, but much less frequently - attempting to convince the young to leave the nest.

This morning the two eaglets briefly flew from the nest tree! Although their initial sojourn was brief - they have officially fledged! The youngest eaglet will likely follow its siblings lead soon. The eaglets will continue to return to the nest frequently and will still be fed by the parents for some time.

Fuzzy's Taste Test was the best! I
laughed & laughed. VA info posted was interesting about the crows - some saw them & didn't know what to make of it all. Thanks for the Film Loop pictures from all over - especially OUR EAGLE!
