Jordan Lake Bald Eagle Nest report: Ranger Cove nest, 10 photos 05-14-2019

 Ranger Cove Nest
One of the chicks is branching.
It is getting strong enough to develop lift with its wings and bounce with its legs.
Suddenly it was in the air and popped up to a branch just above its head (the branch is on the other side of the trunk from us).
It was quite pleased with what it had done and proceeded to practice several more branchings.
Soon it will take the leap and fully fledge away from the nest.

  1. I didn’t get to this yesterday. A whole lot of email came in today, and I just looked at it. YOu do capture amazing things, and I’m learning a lot. Judy
