Well the fuzzy pair of American Eagles
are now almost fully grown at six weeks old. And they're getting ready to 'fledge.' That is, finally fly from their nest.
If you haven't checked lately on this pair that were born March 18-20 in a tall tree in the National Arboretum near the Anacostia River in the District of Columbia, you may be amazed at how they've grown, developed a full coat of black eagle feathers, and spend much of their day pacing back and forth in the nest, flapping their wings, practicing for the Big Takeoff! Humorous and endearing!
So do your bird watching soon; it won't be long before they've 'flown the nest!'
