Today the young hawk goes wild! He is ......
climbing and flying all around in the trees nearby the nest tree.
When I first arrived at the nest, the young hawk was in a tree beside the nest. Then he flew to below the nest and climbed up his back ladder of branches which is how he jumps in. When he jumped in the back of the nest, the three eaglets hopped back to where he was and there was a tussle of some kind, could not see it. There was lot of yelling and screaming by all the kids or I should say hawk/eaglets. The mother eagle was sitting on a tree nearby.
The mother eagle flew immediately over to a branch over the nest and gave eaglets a very stern talking to with many high-pitched calls and head-raised warning about behavior. It became very quiet after that.
Then all was fine, the eaglets appeared from the back of the nest, walking with their funny jerky walk and little hawk appeared to be just fine and wandered around on the nest a bit and he hopped onto a branch. Mom eagle felt her job was done and left them alone.
The eaglets starting doing this in the picture above. They were all three exercising their wings in the lovely summer breeze off the ocean. You can always tell where the hawk is as he is very verbal.
He always is talking and peeping about things, who knows what. He probably is whining about food. After a long time, the hawk flew off as the big eaglets can't fly yet and he can, so he had to show off a little bit to them. He flew from tree to tree and practiced his landings and tested out some branches that were too small. He flopped about on some branches and did more squeals. He then flew toward the nest to a tree nearby.
Then it was time for me to leave. I am always sad to leave the little hawk as I am very attached to it now. I am obsessed with watching it and I just think it is so cute.
I am giving roses to the people who liked my facebook page and those who went and watched my videos of the young hawk on YouTube. It is very rewarding for me to have people look at the videos and like my page. For many years no one has looked at my videos or liked my page but I kept doing it hoping you would all come. I am lucky I have very supportive blog friends who have kept me blogging all these years. I have leukemia and I get very tired so sometime I have to just rest and not do my blog.
I also give roses to the residents of the quiet street that the nest is on. We have all invaded their space and they have graciously accepted us. I have become very attached to the lovely area and the lovely people there. I hope we all leave them alone soon.
This is all part of a continuing story of a little hawk being raised by two eagles in their nest in Sidney, B.C.
