Tonight Eyass have not fledged yet June 19, 2009 (double click to enlarge photos)

Look at the wingspan

Talons are now right off the branch

Female was going back and forth with branch in his beak

Just got in and the eyass have not fledged yet. The eyass are very busy jumping and flying from branch to branch. The 3rd one you hardly see - seems tucked in the nest.
Tonight the female arrived on the nest with a branch in her mouth. She then flew to a tree beside the nest. She went back and forth 4 times. Then she started to call the eyass. I was sure one was going to go but no luck. She then left and sat on the construction site till 7pm.
Photos to follow. Was joined by Bob after work and Bernie and Florence later.

All shots are of the 2 eyas. The 3rd one did not venture very far from the nest.
small flight between branches

Looking below


Today when I arrived at work I was sure one eyas was going to fly today. He was flying from branch to branch - not jumping but flying. The second one was flapping like mad on him branch and then jumping in the nest. The 3rd was still sitting mostly in the nest. I would not be surprised that one is gone by tomorrow.
Weather overcast.
