I photographed this fledgling yesterday morning. I recognized that the eaglet was one of this year’s fledges … but I didn’t think it was from Jordan Lake as some of our chicks are about ready to fly, but haven’t yet. So I asked for input from one of the eagle experts I know and he suggested that perhaps it had explored it’s way here from Florida as the breeding cycle there is a couple of months ahead of here in NC. It is not unusual for bald eagles to cover more than 200 miles/day when they are out seeing the countryside!
This eaglet was hatched about 10 months ago here at Jordan Lake. Great to see it successfully fishing!
This is one of this year’s fledgling bald eagles at Jordan Lake.
Having just added new photos to my print gallery (more than a dozen bird species), I want to say my heart-felt thanks to each of you who has bought a print from me in the past. My thanks to those of you who check out my gallery site and consider making a purchase. Each purchase helps me to continue my field studies at Jordan Lake and I do enjoy the studying. However, my biggest joy is in the sharing with all of you what I observe at the lake. Thanks for considering a purchase.
Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen
