This brother eaglet is showing it's two siblings just how it's done. It won't be long before they all fledge. On another note this is the nest were a Red Tailed Hawk has been adopted by the eagle parents. The hawk has fledged but comes back to the nest, although not seen in this photo it is in fact in the nest at the time of this photo.

Hi Wayne. I was rooting for the Red Tailed Hawk. Gorgeous capture of their wing span this young eaglet. Yes... not that many weeks away....

Upon further study you can also see the Red Tailed Hawk sitting on the left edge of the nest watching it's eaglet sibling spreading it's wing, with the other two eaglets doing the same.
