Have you been watching the progress of the Berry College (Georgia) bald eagle chick? The cam is great (infrared for 24/7 viewing) http://www.berry.edu/eaglecam/ and there's a link on that page to an approach view camera, so you can see how big the nest is. It's up about a hundred feet off the ground so let's hope first flight is a safe one. She's been up in a branch above the nest quite a few times, and lately looking like she's scoping out her flight path. She's so rambunctious (when not napping) that it'll be amazing if her first flight isn't backwards off the nest proper. This eaglet hatched on Feb 22, so she could fledge out any time now. She's been showing off her skills lately, helping tear up the food that her parents bring into the nest, or rearranging sticks at the edge of the nest and fluffing up the grass in it the way the parents do when they've decided to do a little housekeeping. She's already bigger than her dad. Male bald eagles are smaller than the females, and that's the only reason I figure this eaglet is a female. There was another egg this season, but it didn't prove viable. Some snapshots - from March 12, April 21 and May 4.
