Today was very exciting at the nest and....
I will put a short note in here and do more tomorrow.
One of the eaglets fledged and flew over us two times! I had not set up my camera gear as I had just arrived at the nest when the eaglet flew. It was crazy time! The eaglet flew around and the hawk flew in screaming right after and the parents called out their approval also. It was a big family moment it seems. All the family was calling out their encouragement to the young eaglet. It was very noisy! You can see the videos below. All the people in the street clapped and hooted and were so happy!
The eaglet landed under the nest and another eaglet was also under the nest so our spunky was very smart. He flew into the nest to be with his favorite sister eaglet. They sat on their branch together and did their preening together. They had a nice hug and then they went and had a nice nap together in the nest! I saw the hawk wander around the nest a few times before they settled into their little nap.
Yay no other eaglets to bother them! They had the house to themselves and they enjoyed it too.
Later on the hawk went and sat on a branch near the nest and he sang a peeping hawk song as the eaglets flapped their wings. The eaglets seemed to be able to climb back up to the nest easily but with a lot of complaining about it and screaming.
