So happy for Decker.  :eclove  I wish him years of a wonderful and free eagle life.  He and all of "our" eagles will be a part of my heart for many years.


I am also delighted that so many people will be there to see him take him first flight into his future.  I will be there with you in spirit.  :heart

Thank you, Passerine. I will be there in spirit. Sure hope there are lots of fishies there for him after all he's been through. I keep thinking of the video where he dragged that fish back to his little log home. What a survivor.  :heart

Weather looks great for Decker's big day tomorrow.  It will be great for those going to see him fly away.

Enjoy your day and have a good visit too.

Decker, fly high and live a long and healthy life.

(((Decker))) so glad you'll be off to your world!  So jealous of everyone who gets to go!

Fly Free, Dear Decker!   I hope you have many wonderful years ahead of you, filled with plenty of good food, a caring and capable mate, and many healthy fledged eaglets.  :thumbup:

For our friends who will be there to watch Decker leave his caretakers, have a loving day.   :heart
