Teaching his Eagle sibling to fly! On June 23 2017 Little Eagle fledged from his nest and spent the night in a nearby tree. I managed to find him there the morning of the 24th and caught him heading back to the nest. Took some time and several flights but in order to get fed, Little Eagle needed to return to the nest. The young eagles were totally amazed by him and watched everything he did.
Over the next weeks, Little Eagle gained strength and confidence with his flying abilities so he would come and go as adults arrived with food, then after a meal he was off to explore the surrounding area.
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
