Went out to check on the eaglets the other day, hadn’t been there in a while. As I pulled into the parking area at sunrise I caught a brief glimpse of on of the adults flying into the fog, leaving one juvi behind on the nest.
Heavy rains as of late have resulted in lush vegetation and a full flowing river. Unfortunately to go with it is a bumper crop of mosquitoes which I am still paying for days later with a number of itchy welts on my fingers from no more than five minutes on the river bank.
Kevin and I quickly retreated to higher ground and decided upon a drive up the canyon in hopes of locating the other two juvenile baldies.
Long story short, the baldies are doing fine and are happily flying about, exploring their newly discovered world 🙂 We had several sightings and we’re able to capture quite a few nice images.
So two of the three eaglets are flying, which is pretty good. I imagine by the time I get out there again, all three will be airborne!
