How wonderful to watch eagles so closely...love them. We have eagles across the street at the lake but they only fly high overhead sometimes.

What a wonderful post and it is just such a wonderful thing being able to watch this kind of nature unfold...beautiful. Happy soaring and long life young Eagles...fly safe~


Happy landings to those beautiful birds!


Thanks a lot, Sallie, to have share with us this wonderful adventure ! Poor (or happy ?) Ozzie and Harriett with their empty nest : a whole life to reorganize !


How exciting to watch from newly hatched to fledglings... Thanks for sharing!

Dearest Sallie,
Wow, I truly enjoyed the pictures and the adult one♬♬♬
I've never seen Eagles before; they sure look brave and happy for their fledging well.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Aaahhh...we enjoyed watching them when they were newly hatched. I'm glad they made it and are on their own now. Great photos!

Great series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.


What a fabulous thing to watch!


It must have been wonderful to watch the progress of those chicks and then see them successfully fledge into the big wide world.

Congrats Sallie- you must have been thrilled to capture both Hope and Honor after they fledged. Thanks for sharing your fantastic shots.

I have to wonder how long the post on my "wordy" blog would be if I got to watch eagles learn to fly! What a great thing to see!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne


Happy Days - nature at its finest


Wow ! you have interesting neighbors ! I don't even remember when I have seen an eagle except in a zoo !


Wonderful shots of eagles. I t is delight to watch them.


This must have been a very rewarding experience for you to watch the development of the eaglets. A little bit sad when watching them fly away I suspect. Nature is wonderful.


SUPER ich liebe diese Greifvögel und der Adler ist schon ein Besonderer

DANKE für diese wunderschönen Bilder

Thank you for this interesting account of the young eagles leaving their nest. It must be wonderful to see this all happening. We never see those big birds here. The biggest birds are the seagulls and crows. It is still very cold here, so we have to feed the small singing birds as we do in winter.
Have a wonderful day!
Wil, ABCW Team.


you got some great shots...it is amazing that they fledged so early as ours our in mating season and some in egg laying. It is wonderful to be able to see them fledge, so glad you like eagles too.


Wow! Such amazing and beautiful creatures!


Wow - What an amazing sight!

I gather that Feedly is a great alternative to Google Reader and most people are going over to that instead. Why not try it out?



Would love to have a chance to see these majestic eagles up close. Amazing you saw the whole cycle of the eaglets.


It's amazing how fast they grew! Seems like yesterday their eyes were barely open.
Great post!


How nice to be able to watch their success.. long may they fly...Michelle


Great pics, some eagle tough love.


How cool to have witnessed the whole cycle!


What a treat to see those beautiful birds.

This has been so exciting. I've been following their journey on Twitter since you first posted about them. They are very good at updating on Twitter. Must've been a thrill to see them flying off. Wow, I can only imagine. Great pics and wonderful post, Sallie!


Such a great post. I love eagles. They're such majestic birds.


What an awesome thing to see and photograph. I often wonder how it must feel to be a bird flying high above the ground, in complete control.


You are so lucky to be able to witness these beautiful birds in action, and to see their progress.


Cool watching their progress, I am so happy the eaglets are doing so well. And the parents are beautiful. Great shots and post, Sallie!


I have yet to see the eagles, especially the endangered ones.

Hahaha, I am slowly learning my bird names. I missed last Saturday's bird hike, because I was in the farm. I will try!

Such a nice history and very interesting to read about the young eagles! Touching to know they come back to the nest for food once and a while! :) I find your photos both interesting and informative, Sallie!
Greetings Pia


so very, very cool! i hope they prosper!


Great photos - wonderful to be able to watch such a great event.


What a wonderful experience that must have been to see these majestic 'babies' begin to make there way out into the world. Baby eagles with wonderful names - gives me goosebumps.
You got a great shot of the adult too.

I bet Ozzie and Harriet are proud, PROUD parents!


Must be magic to actually watch all this happening! Thank you so much for the photos and commentary.
