swfec nest notes: E23 at 120 days old is ready and able

Impressive E23 (courtesy of SWFEC camera)

M15 and F23 were home more throughout the last week. They each brought prey to the nest. Dad waited for E23 to arrive and claim the food. Momma was not as patient and proceeded to eat her catch, a reminder to E23 to be on the lookout for an easy meal. Mastering hunting will be trial and error for the first few years. E23 practiced fishing in the pond with good technique.

E23 has impressive flying skills, dodging the smaller chasing birds. E23 appears to float through the sky, soaring and exploring. E23 experiences the feeling of freedom and independence in beautiful flights around the territory. E23 spends longer hours away from the nest tree, and then the familiar sound of squee is heard as E23 arrives.

M15 and F23 have nurtured and cultivated E23 from a precious hatchling to an incredible Juvenile Eagle. There is a sense that one of the daily expeditions will take E23 off on the voyage of a lifetime. E23 is ready and able to navigate the next part of the journey through Eagle life.
