This young Bald Eagle leaves the nest for the first time. Born on a farm near Wheeler dam, the progress of this youngster’s life was carefully observed daily. We were fortunate to be there for this exciting event. After an hour or so of the parent calling to the young eaglet, the youngster half-flapped/ half-hopped to a tree a few yard from the nest tree and landed by the parent.
The print above is a composite of the first 6 frames of the young Eagles maiden flight.
