The oldest perched on a big branch. Already looking regal.

He didn’t fly around the afternoon I stopped by in mid-march. He was flapping pretty hard but never officially took off while I was there. By now he’s probably flying pretty high. This was my last stop of the year. I’ll leave them to their soaring and check back next year. It’s great to see both are doing well. Maybe I’ll see them flying over a busy road soon.

  1. Oh my goodness. I see a lot of eagle photos from my home province, British Columbia, where the eaglets are younger than yours, but your two of the jump/land sequence are just fabulous. I love them. “Maybe I’ll take off. Oh, maybe I won’t.”
    Thanks for a real treat!
