And Then There Was One

D22 hopped up on a branch late on Tuesday evening around 9pm.  She then seemed to disappear, but this is from RRP:

After several on the ground reports, we've decided to declare a fledge for D22. It would have been nice if the fledge was as magnificent - and obvious - as that... of D21, but it didn't happen. Piecing together what reports we have, it appears D22 spent the night in the branches above N2, leaving the tree for parts unknown some time today.
Several people are worried about whether or not D22 is okay. We have no reason to think something is wrong. D22 appeared quite healthy and the weather was very cooperative. An awful lot of people are keeping an eye out for D22 and we will keep our ears to the ground and our eyes on the skies, but there isn't a reason to think that something has gone wrong. Mom and Dad almost certainly know where D22 is even if we don't.
We will let everyone know as soon as we hear or see anything! And tomorrow we will have a photo report from Robin. The eagles tend to get out of bed early, so we'll be checking the cam first thing in the morning. I'm looking forward to seeing what tomorrow brings!

Fly safe D22, find D21 and learn all you can.  May you soar the thermals and have a long happy life.
