Fledgling trying its wings
22-MAR-2013 Coleen Perilloux Landry

Fledgling trying its wings

This fledgling was hatched on December 28. Its wing feathers are almost fully filled in and its talons are quite sharp. It was practicing its skills in the branches above its nest but not quite sure where to put itself.

They are fun to watch as they try to figure out how to fly :-)

Love it. You do have a paradise for birds and a love for them. Have a great weekend, my friend.

Learning to fly must be really scary. Beautiful catch with its wings outspread.

You have done a nice job in chronicling their birth and maturing...

They grow up so fast, pretty soon it will be soaring in the sky. You are so lucky to witness this cycle of life.

It's so big! I don't know why I'm surprised since it's an eagle. Wonderful nature capture.
