Bald Eagle and Eaglet, Preparing For First Flight 09

Bald Eagle and Eaglet, Preparing For First Flight 09

Description : A few hours after this photo was taken the mother and eaglet flew away and were never seen at the nest again.

While on the nest with very young eaglets, parents move about with their talons balled into fists to avoid accidentally skewering their offspring.
Once the young eagles have fledged (to acquire the feathers necessary for flight) they remain around the nest for four or five weeks, taking short flights while their primary feathers grow and strengthen.
