And Then There Was One

Yesterday afternoon D18 just got a wild hair up his tail feathers and fledged. We have not seen him since. Then not to be outdone D19 took off just before dark and we not seen him either. Poor little D20 is left and had to survive a bad storm by his lonesome during the night. Since 20 is a few days younger it may be til the weekend before he fledges. I wish them happy soaring and long lives. No decision has been made to tag them with a transmitter yet, but guess that answer will come soon since they are leaving. It is always sad when the season ends. For 11 weeks millions of people across the world are glued to their screens watching the miracle of life in this eagle nest. Godspeed D18, D19, D20.
