Bald Eagles: Fledglings

I’ve witnessed this pair of Bald Eagles raise three pairs of young over the last three years.  Having learned from past years, I got some photos of their young shortly after they had fledged and before they left.

They have two nests in this vicinity.  One they abandoned three years ago, and one they built three years ago.  The fledglings have been winging back and forth between the two nests, while the parents watch from a safe distance.

Their survival training and hunting training will begin now as they leave the nest area.

On this day, though, this fledgling contented itself with gliding between the two nests.

Where it then rejoined its sibling.
