2022-04-25 17:34:38 GMT

E19 and E20 are turning four months old and have blossomed into competent Juvenile Eagles. Their presence is stunning, and they are fearless forces in the territory. They have been encouraged and tested in using their skills and instincts. They pass with flying colors as they come of age to soon begin their life journeys.

E19 and E20 honed their hunting and fishing skills as they perched near the pond, watching and waiting. They practiced swooping on the ducks and other birds. They focused on movement in the water and skimmed the surface to check it out. E19 and E20 went after the Anhinga and Cormorant swimming to the shore with a fish they caught. E19 and E20 have good technique and will eventually strike it just right. M15 continued with an occasional food drop in the pasture. E19 and E20 arrive quickly to battle for and protect their catch. They will follow other Eagles and birds to a food source and fiercely face their greatest challenge.

Harriet and M15 have graced E19 and E20 with valuable knowledge and countless lessons. E19 and E20’s natural curiosity has them yearning to wander and freely soar the skies seeking wild adventures. E19 and E20 are well prepared for the transition to lives as exceptional young Eagles. Nest Notes by dadsjazz
