_MG_0047 Eagle Flight 1

OK! The frequent visitors know I'm into eagle flight behavior so it should be no surprise that I locked-in on this pair

Frame one: The "juvi" stays with the adult pair -- at least until the second season. The flight training gets intense in the second year.

The adult ( right) pounces on the youngster from the advanteage of altitude. Youngster turns up the wick to avoid embarressment and runs for the deck!
