Weekly Nest Notes: Soaring to New Horizons

2020-08-13 14:49:55 GMT

E15 and E16 grew more independent over the week preparing for the journey ahead. They sought out new sights soaring far and high on the thermals and sailing through the clouds. Although they have become less tolerant of each other, they spent the morning perched on the pylons at the pond. They took in the sights and swooped the ducks. A while later E16 flew to the nest tree for possibly one last look. E16 took off on a long winding flight around the territory eventually disappearing into the Southeast skies. E16 may have departed for new horizons and was last seen on 8-08-2020.

E15 remained in the area watching for Mom or Dad and a meal. At this point, Harriet is mostly disinterested but M15 will still provide food.  E15 roosted overnight at Yonder Pond and played along the ground there in the morning. E15 took a beautiful flight toward the Southwest and back to the area. E15 then flew again toward the South climbing higher into the great beyond. If neither brave and bold Juvenile returns in a few days, they have indeed responded to the call of the wild. The world is theirs to explore on the adventures of their lifetimes.   Nest Notes by dadsjazz
