SWFL Eagles_ A Morning Of Escapades: Hide-n-Seek, Tree Climbing & Upside Down 04-22-21

wskrsnwings - A quiet morning came alive with flights by E17 to the OCT (old cam tree), pasture snag, cam 2 tree, DSPS (drive side pond snag) and CSPS (church side pond snag) while E18 winged and danced in the nest tree branches. The real adventures began as E18 flew to the OCT and E17 sought them out and perched there too. E17 flew back to the nest tree but E18 missed the landing with a crow chasing them. E18 continued around and ended up grabbing at vines on the OCT trunk, turning upside down as the crows continued to harass E18. E18 pulled themselves back upright and launched off the trunk, flying to a low branch on a front pine. Good job, E18! E18 next flew low through the pasture and perched low on the strangler fig remains. From there, E18 flew toward the west pasture and up and around to a front pine. E17 sought E18 out again while perched there but E17 did not land on the pine and returned to the nest tree. The E's are 89 days old today.
