The eaglets are now approximately eight weeks old. Both are females, banded two weeks ago. The photo above, featuring one of the girls exercising her wings, was taken this morning. The young birds stay in the nest for approximately 10 to 12 weeks, until they are large enough and strong enough to leave (fledge). This is typically toward late June.
