A couple days ago baby SNOOPY, the not quite four month old golden eagle, flew for the first time. Not an elegant process but she did make it the full 80' to the end of the flight barn. Today she flew to the top of the tower, the one you can see in the photo way in the back. Naturally I didn't have my camera with me at the time.
This time she only made it to the lower spot, the nest box that my old JULIE used whenever she laid eggs. It was still a great moment and one I was pleased to record. Now she just needs some air time and proof that she can make live kills and she'll be ready for release.
