Taylorsville, KY, United States
Our 14 week old eaglet “Courage” was no where to be found, but could be overheard crying somewhere in a tree near the nest. Her sibling “Honor” and mother “Claire” were waiting on the nest for her to return. Eventually, I saw a black unsteady blob soaring out of the trees and here comes “Courage” squealing like a banshee trying to figure out to use her landing gear. She squealed all the way to the nest as her mother and brother looked on in panic. Mom stepped to the side and helped “Courage” brace herself in the crash landing. It was just a big ole pile wings when the eaglet landed, but everyone came out alright.
