“Am I doing this right?”
“Is this the standard eagle pose?”
“Do these wings make my butt look big?” (says the baby eagle if it’s a she).
“Man, the chicks are gonna dig these.” (says the eagle if it’s a guy.)
“I have lift off.”
“Quiet down, I’m trying to sleep.”
Above is a short video of the baby eagle flapping his wings. I stopped by the nest on a cold windy day in mid-February. Both babies looked good. By now they are around 2 months old? I’m not sure when they hatched. Only when I could see them peeking over the nest so they could be close to 3 months old. By now they are flying far away.
