Jordan Lake: Bald Eagle Nest SUPRISE!!! at Captain’s Nest. You never know, during a bald eagle breeding season, how the cycle will end. Once in a while you’re completely surprised right near the finish … There were actually THREE chicks who fledged from the Captain’s Nest – usually there are 2 chicks. It is always difficult to track the number of eaglets while they are in the nest and Captain’s Nest proved just that. If you look just below the arrow you can see the face of the 3rd chick. We have now seen all 3 of the chicks fledged and enjoying their cove. Way to go Captain Mom and Dad! Triplets! My thanks to Captain Doug for sharing his photo and the Captain Nest journey with us.

Come join tomorrow’s Webinar: a journey through a year with the Bald Eagles of First Nest at Jordan Lake. We will explore what it means to be a parent bald eagle and how to grow as a bald eagle chick and then fledgling. Thursday June 3, at 7PM at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/regi…/7604824265165301005 . There is a registration fee of $9.50. I hope you will come and join Mom Kate and Dad Petruchio and some of their chicks during the 1 hour presentation.

As I have been wont to say: you just never know what you’re going to get to see when you’re out at Jordan Lake. This morning, I watched two athletes, in perfect synchronization, sculling a shell across the surface of the lake. There was only a whisper of a wake behind them. There was absolutely no sound of oars dipping in unison into the water. There was beautiful purpose and form and motion. If anybody out there knows these two gentlemen, please let them know how much I appreciated getting to sit in peace, watch them this morning and revel in their seamless flow.

These lovely delicate little plants are American water willows. They are native to North Carolina. However they had to be introduced into Jordan Lake. Through the years different entities here have worked very hard to make sure that the water willows have a home. I hope you enjoy their shades of lavender and white beauty this morning. Take care, be safe. Stay well.
