Learning to Fly

Decorah Eagle Cam

Been watching this link above since late spring break from eggs to eaglets. They are now fledging. It is quite humorous to log in and read the chats from time to time. How many people are so attached to these three that they almost feel like their own children! I might also include myself in this group most days! I have shared it from time to time with my students as well. I don't think they have quite the same feeling about these little guys as we adults do! Watching one of the parents out on the branch yesterday while one or another eaglet did some wingercising and hovering. Maybe I need to pay more attention to the parents than the eaglets! Don't respond! I know those of you who will heartily agree with that one! In the meantime, I watch expectantly and sadly for the final flight.
