The Eagle chick is growin' fast!

Update on the Bald Eagle nest from Jane Patterson on Vimeo.

The eagle chick in the Ramah-Maringuoin is growing fast! He's as large as his parents now. He's shown here exercising his wings and lumbering around the nest. The parents seem to be leaving him alone for longer periods of time now -- sometimes watching from the nearby tree-line, but often they can't be seen in the vicinity at all. I think he has about 3 more weeks in the nest, give or take...

(apologies for the shaky video -- at 70x zoom any bit of wind throws the camera around, even on a tripod)
