Baby eagles update

Baby eagles on each side of the nest with one of the parents in the middle.

One of the babies was flapping his wings while the other looks.

This past Sunday I made a trip to Honeymoon Island to see how big the baby eagles have gotten. It's amazing how much they have grown since I was there 5 weeks ago. They were sitting on the nest looking almost as big as their parents. They are around 9-10 weeks old. In the next 2 weeks they will probably start to fly. They will spend 4-5 weeks after their first flight still hanging around the nest building up their wing strength. I think I'm going to have to make a trip out there again before they leave for good.
