E15 and E16 are nearing the time for them to each make their way to discover the world. They have keen instincts and are well schooled in ways of Eagle life. They have been engaging and sharpening skills over the weeks and seem ready for new experiences. They keep a close watch for Harriet and M15 and an eye on each other just in case a meal is brought in. They have learned that Eagles and other birds may lead them to prey where they will have to use their unique ways of stealing the food and keeping it. These behaviors will be important elements for their survival in the wild.
Harriet and M15 are mostly absent from the pasture throughout the day hours allowing E15 and E16 to fend for themselves. E15 and E16 explored places in the territory and spent a lot of time at the pond cove area during the afternoon heat. Their environment has provided them with many different scenarios. They frolic in and out of the water picking up things along the pond bank. The trees and snags in the territory give them a good advantage for sight or places for shelter. Harriet and M15 flew in to perch with them in a front pine tree as strong winds blew through the area. All the comforts of home will soon be a memory as E15 and E16 grow restless and heed their desire to roam.
Harriet and M15 are still providing for E15 and E16 while in the process of recouping from an especially taxing Season. After the loss of precious E14 and Egg 2 not hatching, they did not concede. They persevered and fulfilled their primary purpose of bringing new life into the Eagle world. E15 and E16 learn the lessons well, use their skills and instincts, and are ready to proceed to the next parts of their journeys. There are no doubts that E15 and E16 will excel in their travels to discovery and majesty. Nest Notes by dadsjazz
