JL Eagle Nest report: Sibling Chase 04-27-2017

The lake continues to flood its shoreline. But the sibling bald eagle fledglings Coffee and HC don’t mind. They were having too much fun first harrassing an osprey and when the smaller bird left the playing field, the two eaglets started chasing each other. Coffee is the bigger of the two fledglings and is already much more agile in flight than HC – note that it is her flying sideways and almost upside down. In flight the easiest way to know who is whom, Coffee has the ragged tail!
