Lady Hawk - E18 took a giant leap of faith today and flew from the outer branch to the OCT (old cam tree) at 8:52 AM EST. Congratulations E18 on a perfect fledge at 88 days old today! E18 flaps and balances on the OCT while E17 watches from a nearby snag. After a few minutes, E18 takes flight and lands on the front drive snag and E17 will follow and join her! Beautiful to see both E's together! E18 will head back to the nest in a triumphant and perfectly executed return! In celebration of this huge milestone, E18 will hop up to the veranda and spread those wings out in a gorgeous heraldic pose!. E17 is also seen on the front snag in a heraldic pose drying its wings!! What an exciting morning at the nest today. E18 made a 2nd flight back to the OCT later in the morning! And M brought in a celebratory squirrel! 1:50 ~~ E18 fledges 7:52 ~~ E18 to Front Drive Snag 10:49 ~~ E18 to nest 13:12 ~~ E18 Heraldic pose 14:04 ~~ E17 Heraldic pose Thank you for watching!
