Well that’s that. Three eggs, three chicks, and now three juveniles off into the wide world. The eagle cam is shut down until next year.
I enjoyed the heck out of the whole thing, even the anxious parts when we couldn’t see one of the chicks for a while and fretted about them. I checked the camera just today, actually, and it was simply and quietly focused on an empty nest.
With a bit of luck, they’ll all live to end up looking like this guy.
Handsome devil, ain’t he?
So, take care you guys, and with luck we’ll check in with mom and dad next year.
I’ll take the sticky off this post just as soon as another one goes up, at which time it will disappear into its chronological timeslot. I think.
That camera, according to the stats, got an amazing number of views over the last months, and you just know there were lots of positive thoughts directed toward that little family. There’s something hopeful about that, y’know?
Not to mention that we all now know one hell of a lot more about eagles than we did at first. No way that can be Bad Thing, right?
