Ranger Nest:  Fledgling Landing

Landing are the difficult part of flight – whether you are bird or pilot. The fledgling came back in from his first flight.  Dad Ranger had brought a fish to the nest.  No way was the fledgling going to let his sibling, who hadn’t fledged yet, have a single bite of the fish.  Only, oops, the fledgling misjudged his landing by several feet and ended up on a branch below the nest.  Even an adult eagle would have trouble launching from underneath the nest and flying upwards.  So, what to do?  Well, if your wings aren’t going to get you out of the fix, climb…yep, climb back up to the nest.
