Late spring brought a couple of new babies close to the island. North of the Groth’s home, Vernon found an enormous stick nest with two little heads popping up over the side. Come to find out, it was a nest with two baby eagles that seemed to thinking about venturing out of the nest. I, along with my mom, Alison Groth and Chris Cordell followed Vernon to see if we could get a glimpse of these little, well not so little eagles. By the time we got there, one of them had taken a leap and learned that a little wing flapping could keep him up and landed in a nearby tree. The other hopped out of the nest to a nearby limb above the nest petrified. The mother and father were flying between the trees squawking like crazy. It seemed as if they were telling the one in the nearby tree to fly back to the nest and the other one to stay put. It was just the most incredible thing to witness. Alison Groth captured a few photos for us.
