Eagles and Eaglets Fly Away

We went to the nest yesterday but did........

not see Spunky the hawk again. Also there was only one eagle sitting out on the point again. I did not see any of the eaglets or hear them either. The nest was empty except for the little birds that fly around the base of it.These are the last pictures of the eagles and the eaglets I got several days ago now. They flew up really high and the hawk could have been up there also but it was too hard to tell. That is the last picture at the top here of the little hawk on my photo files other than the one of him on a tree far down the bay.

This is how high up in the air they were, they were just little dots.

I made a slideshow page album of the eaglet and eagles as they fly away. As they are animations Blogger/Google will not let me embed them here but they are fun to look at if you want to click the link to my album page. The photos are terrible as my camera lens does not extend that far.

  1. Wow makes me dream

    1. Hi Cloudia, yes I dream of the hawk now! Last night I dreamed of him all night long!

  2. All departed to find territories and mates of their own no doubt.

  3. They grow up so fast.
