“It's Been Fun”
The adults will have some additional work next season, as a portion of the nest has fallen away. This is not uncommon as Bald Eagle nest can grow quite massive. The juvenile female has continued to use the nest as a roost and feeding platform. The adults have grown less and less responsive to her calls for food and she'll soon have to fend entirely for herself. Observers have noted her successfully fishing.
Be sure to check out our Peregrine Falcon cam at http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/falconcam/ You can follow these 4 young falcons as they grow and stretch their wings!
So Long & Thanks For All The Fish
