    He will fledge before the eagles. I hope his instincts kicks in and he realizes he is not and eagle.
    They believe baby hawk was to be dinner but he must exhibited a feeding response that triggered the parents to start feeding him.
    Fascinating!

    I think it is still returning to the nest.
    Mom and dad eagle must be wondering why it fledged so soon compared to the siblings.

    Thank you Wendy. My goodness I bet those birds are huge when you see them up close because they look that way in the photos.

    Right, I realize that. But since bald eagles mainly hunt fish I thought he might be a bit confused. BTW I am a falconer and have trained and flown many red-tailed hawks. They are beautiful, majestic birds in their own right.

    Holy cow, go Spunky! I hope this ends well for the little guy. Fascinating. I was sure the title was a typo.
