“Getting Around”

The male that fledged (band HK) is getting the hand of flying. He has been reported in the vicnity of the nest tree and has been seen soaring briefly by observers. This all indicates that he continues to improve his newfound ability. We have not seen the male return to the nest to be fed but it is quite possible that he has been fed away from the nest by the adults.

The camera is back up and we'll continue to watch the two young females as they get closer to fleding and we'll keep a sharp eye out for the male.
