a bit of branching followed by a jump-flap across the nest

July 1 update from Marcia

"Names for the eaglets have been chosen by the landowners.

Names have been chosen for our 2007 Eaglets, Albert (smaller one) and Einstein (of course, the larger one). We feel since there hasn't been much aggression toward each other and they take care of each other too that they're both males. We could be totally wrong but then it wouldn't be the first time. Anyway, those names seem to fit perfectly."

Shoebutton's photo - June 28
63 days old (9 weeks)

We'd been thinking she wasn't flapping as much as Skye and Limuw were at this age - and I guess she heard us. Little "Joy" (our nickname for her (?) on the Maine Forum thread) has been doing a whole lot of flapping and some flapping hops across the nest.

Fort St Vrain eaglets
's photo - July 1
81 and 83 days (almost 12 weeks)

there are a lot of pictures of an empty nest in the pics from the last 24 hours on the cam web site, and some pics of a parent alone in the nest - they definitely are doing serious branching, and one or both might have fledged. I'm hoping the cam operators will post an announcement soon.

Barton's Cove, MA
April 6
April 8 or 9

younger fledged
June 28

The younger Barton's Cove eaglet (nicknamed "Vanilla" or "Van") fledged at about noon on June 28, at 81 days (11-1/2 weeks) - and Sharon got a video! His big sister (?) "Choco" (for Chocolate) has been doing some serious flapping and branching, but we haven't seen proof she's fledged. It's hard to know for sure as both of them branch on the edge of the nest and on some of the little branches you can see below - and that's out of sight of the cam - but Sharon and her kayak are visiting as often as possible!

I don't normally have more than one photo in an update - but Sharon had such great pictures this week that I needed to post two of them - do check out the link at the end for more!

"After paddling a couple of miles away from the nest, I returned on the opposite side of the island from where I last saw the fledgling. As I turned the corner, there it was - and it was so close that I was about to paddle right by it. I never would have purposefully been this close and I hope I didn't spook it nearly as much as it surprised me. I had last seen it on the opposite side of the island from this." (The fledged eaglet returned to the nest that evening.)
