Active Eyasses At Riverside
Food Fight

What's Next?

I've had lots of hawk watchers as what's next for the nest.  Eyasses have to be as big as their parents to fly, so we'll see rapid growth over the next few weeks.  The eyasses will begin to practice flapping their wings and will explore branches in the tree.

The young fledge at 44 to 46 days of age, and the parents continue to feed their fledglings for another four to seven weeks.  During this time, the young gradually move farther from the nest, improve their flight abilities, and begin to hunt on their own.

This puts the fledge date for this nest somewhere in the third week of August, and the exploration of the park by the fledglings through to October.
