In that video, it looks and sounds as if Dad is telling Mom, "Go Get 'Em!"   :eclol

While filming Dad, i had heard the rustling of wings in a tree not far behind me.
i finally dragged myself away from Dad to try to find who it was & where they had landed.
This foto is too dark, but look at this sweet young face!
Maybe they were who Dad was trilling at!

The young Eagle spots someone coming!
Turns out it is Mum, so the youngster skedaddles a few trees away from this perch & Mum lands where they were.
i hear that same rustling of wings sound.
i am not able to grab a foto of Mum before she chases the youngster away from THAT perch, too.

Love the pics, and seeing Mom and Dad.  Was great to hear Dad's trills.  I miss them so much and the cam. But am so appreciative of you sharing your wonderful photos.  Thanks so much!
