Maybe...This beautiful pristine baby Golden Eagle may have come out of the nest too soon as she was found on the ground unwilling to fly. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong altho she's a bit thin. There is a nest nearby where she was found near Byron but until we find adults in the exact area she won't be going back there. At this age she needs the support of the parents until she learns how to hunt for herself.
If her parents aren't seen at all in the area she will remain here for training so she will be able to make it in the wild. As you can see by her attitude, she's a bit confused with all that's been happening. Doesn't she look just like SNOOPY sitting on top of his dog house pretending to be a vulture?
