Captain Doug and I went cruising the lake in his boat, looking for the fledglings and parents.
All the nests have now fledged their chicks and so its hard to find the families.
The two fledglings at the H&G Nest of Godiva and Hershey.
One fledgling is just to the left of the nest, at nest brim height.
The other fledgling is way to the left in the photo and near the top – it is small so look carefully.
At First Nest we could see the nest was in good shape, but didn’t see the fledglings.
We rounded the corner to find Mom Kate looking at something way up high and ignoring us.
At Captain’s Nest we hit the jackpot and found the family at home.
This photo has both fledglings in it.
One up high over the nest and the other fledgling you can just see the roundness of the top of its head at the nest brim.
Captain Nest Dad coming in for a landing.
Captain Nest Mom, being imperious and a joy to see.
We got by the nest this morning to find Captain Mom and both chicks doing well. These chicks have really grown. This nest is about the last one on the lake to have their babies fledge out – they should fly in about 2 weeks. It sure was great getting to see Mom eagle and her chicks!
Mom Bald Eagle at Captain’s Nest went to gather a stick, in a mid-air pickup, for the nest repair needed before she lays her eggs. The stick did not cooperate at all!
