From the DNR...
E1 testing her wings

June 23, 2022
E1 takes the bold flight
Early in the morning on June 23, 2022, E1 (the first eagle chick to hatch in 2022) decided to take her first flight. This is the official fledge! 

Eaglets typically fledge around 12 weeks. E1 is a little over 13 weeks, so she’s right on schedule. She has been testing her wings, jumping higher and higher in the wind gusts. She has displayed good stability and capability to jump high with her wings out and land back in the nest. This is a great sign of strength and flight control that bodes well for her coming adventures!

For the next few weeks, E1 will likely leave the nest for longer and longer flights. The adult female will demonstrate hunting techniques, but will continue to provide E1 food on a less frequent basis.

This is an exciting time at the nest, so stay tuned to watch nature up-close and learn all about eagles!

MpMom-
I just read Bonnie Johnson one hour ago is at the nest site and found Harriet....she's out of camera view behind the nest...Bonnie heard her yesterday but this morning was able to actually see her...

All is well....would be nice if they'd pan the camera a bit more these days...
