Good Evening, Fellow Nestizens!!
Due to the fact that neither of the eaglets were seen and only heard a couple of times today in the nest tree I think we can safely infer that Dakota fledged sometime this morning. A couple of fly ins were seen to the high perch but no identifications were made. No feedings, other than the nestover duck which no one saw consumed, took place today in the tree. So, Arky and Dakota have both fulfilled their destinies and become denizens of the wild blue yonder. We wish them all the luck in the world and hope they survive to extend the MNB bloodline to a new generation of eagles.
We will still be watching the cam for them to return from time to time to the nest tree while they learn to use their newfound skills. And I will still be here to let you know what happened when they do.
I hope your Sunday of the holiday weekend was as good as the other days. We’ll see you on the nest tomorrow.
PS: Tomorrows blog will be a little off topic and a little controversial. Please tune in!
