    Great shots, Gary. I can't believe how big that Eaglet is for 6 weeks.

  3. I show hatch date was 3/2/07 I believe it is a female because of size, almost as big as the male already. I believe I also saw additional motion in the nest there may be another.

    Wow baby is getting huge:>))))
    Great Family
    Lovely pics
    Gary thanks so much for keeping this updated.
  6. Thanks Andy

    I hadn't been back in about 4 days and I thought I should catch up myself. I also saw additional movement in the nest there maybe a second Eaglet in there.

    Thanks Gale

    I will try they don't always all come while I'm there. I alway see one or the other but sometimes not both.

    Excellent set
  8. Thanks a lot Harry

    I hadn't been back there in a while, shooting Osprey
  9. Boy Gary that is one good size bird for 6 weeks and I would agree that it is a female as from what I can see of the beak it looks like a female. One little stick in the way. May make a first flight sooner than you think. Better keep an eye on her.
  10. Will do Lou, I should see some wing action soon also.

    folks find it hard to believe that they will actually be bigger than the parents (unless you have a big older female mother) when they fledge and their feathers are actually longer and wider until they get older and go through a molt. Their flight feathers are much wider and a touch longer to assist with those rookie flights.

  13. Thanks Peter

    It is my pleasure to post them as long as people enjoy them.

    Very nice set Gary. Can we have a little sun next weekend maybe?? :smile:

  17. They say we have a good chance for Warm and sunny.
  18. Holy smoke! Some niiiiice photos of these guys! Now where were they when we were all down at the dam shooting, huh?!!
  19. They were probably very close to where you see them in the pictures. They don't fly much on rainy or foggy days. They pretty much just sit I've watched them for hours on overcast and drizzly days and they fly very little.
  20. Yep, it was grey, overcast and drizzly when we were at Guntersville Dam..... Oh, well! Maybe next year....
