wskrsnwings - E15 flew from the nest tree early toward the front and over to the west pasture. E15 aimed to perch in the tall bent pine tree but missed the landing and tumbled down the height of the tree landing in the short palms underneath. We could not see E15 until they flew out and toward the back of the pasture with a beautiful turn around back to where they started. E15 glided to the grassy brush area at the tree line, exploring there for a while. One of the horses stopped for a minute where E15 was and then went on his way. A while later we saw E15 flap their wings on the ground and fly out and up to perch on the cam 2 tree, giving cam viewers a good look at E15's beauty. E15 took short flights branch step by branch step to the top of the tree. E15 then flew past the nest tree to perch on top of a front snag to have a better view of Dad atop the cell tower across the road. When M15 left there, E15 flew back to nest tree to relax, and snooze for a while. E16 watched all the activity and flew from branch to branch in the nest tree. E16 also took time to bounce on the thinner, softer branches next to the veranda, biting at the pine needles. Our 12 week old E's are doing very well gaining the confidence, coordination and strength needed to do well when they strike out on their own.
