The breeze had been gently bouncing Kate, perched at the end of the peninsula.
Then she was across the cove, fishing.
Quick turn around and Kate was at the nest feeding Quizzical.
at last I was able to get some decent video of Quizzical
he is about 7 weeks old and starting to dream of flight
While sitting at one of the boat ramps this morning, I heard an osprey give its “eagle alert” call.
I looked up to see this ragged 2 year-old eagle soar past and head for the osprey.
The osprey dashed off with the juvenile eagle right behind it.
This eagle probably just started his 2 year of life.
The tattered feathers on tail and wings have been well-used in his first year of life.
He is just beginning his first molt of his original flight feathers.
Eagle Family Report: Oh, my, my, my!
I got my first glimpse of a chick in the Eagle Family nest.
That is mom Kate touching the chick with her beak.
At the moment the eaglet is a light grey fluff ball with big eyes and a big beak.
If you go to the Arkive site (one of my favorite wildlife sites) at https://shar.es/1YXPoz
you can see an excellent closeup photo of a chick – wish I had the set up for that kind of photo!
