Since the chicks are almost ready to fledge, we ask observers to spread
There was an interesting interaction between the two eaglets this morning. Hope turned 10 weeks old today. Justice is 5 days younger, but appears disproportionately smaller. Hope appeared to wear herself out by flapping and jumping high into the air. Once, she climbed about 3 feet out on one of the branches that support the right side of the nest. This seemed to tire her out, as she settled down out of sight.
(OUR LAWYERS REQUIRE THIS FINE PRINT DISCLAIMER: We really do not know the sex of either chick, but it is common for there to be one of each sex. Arbitrarily, we are considering the older and larger one to be a female, as adult females are, indeed, noticeably larger than males. Ken)
Justice, as usual, “hunkered down” while the older chick was jumping and flapping all over the nest. Earlier, we have even seen him passively tolerate being stepped on by his big sister. Now, as soon as Hope started snoozing, Justice decided it was his turn to exercise.
Ready, set, ……….:
Up, up and away to the other side of the nest (hang 2 ):
But I didn’t do it on purpose!
Enough, enough! It won’t happen again (until next time). Can’t a guy have some fun?
