Description

This eaglet’s nest was built many years ago during the off season over a small campground along the Susquehanna River. The adults have successfully fledged 2-3 eaglets per year for many years despite the return of the humans each spring. This eaglet learned how pesky Blue Jays can be on the very 1st day fledging from the nest tree nearby. This Blue Jay continued his assault, squawking and repeatedly bopping the eaglet on the head and back until the eaglet realized his only escape was back into the nest tree!
