Up In The Air






The past week has been more than ordinary as far as the immature goes.  One afternoon, there it was soaring over the woods in our front yard.  It was only about 100 ft up as it sailed over the trees, across the yard and into it's area.  What an enormous wingspan they have! 

 Although it's cry fills the air when I open the slider each morning, I know the silence will come soon.  The adults have been stopping by occasionally...more lessons for the young one perhaps.  Last year the two immatures were here until November before the adults threw them out.  I wonder when this "kid" will be banished and if the adults will spend the Winter here as they did last year.

At this stage, everything is literally
up in the air.

Such a shock to the poor little guy but eventually he/she will be stronger for it.

It's a painful process to watch!

Gives real meaning to the phrase we use so loosely about having to leave the nest and move on.

He will soon be soaring higher and higher JP.
You got a good shot of him up there.. He looks big.. not a baby anymore.. A teenager like Tex wrote.

Time to leave the nest, for sure!!! Wonder if he will stick around to raise his own babies?

That is so exciting to see and document, JP.

You are so lucky to see the eagle flying over your yard..I hope the adults stay for the winter.. They are around here and once in a great while I catch them flying over.. Have a great evening!

I bet you're going to miss hearing his cry when he leaves the nest.
