Approximately 10-12 weeks ago a mating pair of American Bald Eagles became the parents of two chicks. Last Sunday my wife and I watched this one stretching it's wings. It hadn't flown yet but we watched it jump up and hoover in place above it nest several times so it won't be long! FYI: Juvenile Bald Eagles can take up to five years to develop their characteristic white feathers and can expect a life span in the wild of up to 30 years.
