Bald Eagle Portrait

Friends, this a mature Bald Eagle with her chick of this year are sitting on the nest. I have been following the chick progress since about early May, now the chick is getting ready to fly.  When both adults are on the nest with the chick, there is peace and harmony, but when the adults leave him alone, the chick jumps around the nest and spreads his wings to make them strong.  The bottom image is a composite showing that he is getting lift  from his powerful wings, soon he will take flight, maybe today, since the wind has diminished from the 40 mph gusts of the last two days.  til Tomorrow MJ
