UPDATE. This blog has been updated to correct the name of the eaglet that hatched from Sky to Ahote.
If you didn’t know about the fledge at the West End Bald Eagle nest of Thunder and Akecheta in the Channel Islands but, you knew the nest and the chicks – which chick would you have voted to fledge first? Most people would say Kana’kini because she has been doing so much hovering.
However, this evening at 17:07:49 the third hatch, Ahote, fledged! It was brilliant. He hovered and out he went!!!!!!!! Surprised everyone.
It was just stunningly beautiful for a first flight.
Congratulations to Thunder and Akecheta and to Ahote – your life as a fledgling and a juvenile just began.
Thank you to Explore.org and the Institute for Wildlife Studies for their streaming cam where I took my screen captures.
