6/26/16 – For a day or two the chatters have been asking if the eaglets had branched and we could not see it, then last night a report came through the grapevine that someone in a boat could see the eaglet on a branch last night around 7:20pm. I watched the video several times but could not make out anything definitive. As you can see, the leaves now hide a portion on the right side of the nest.
However, this morning was different, with the eaglets finally providing me with an opportunity to record them both on and off the branch behind the leafy screen several times! You can watch a sequence of videos here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Just one small step for eaglet-kind, one giant leap for Hr2 and Hr3!
