The eight-week old stars of our show sit at opposite ends of
the nest, facing out, looking like they’re ready to launch their coal black
bodies into the troposphere, ignoring the fact that they haven’t done the prep
work needed to give them functioning wings for flight. (Minor detail to a
Reality reminds us that these two aren’t ready to flee the
nest and they are most likely just wondering where their parents are with
brunch. I haven’t caught them at feeding time lately but seeing them work over
a tidbit of a fish tail yesterday, with no help from Momma, I’m guessing that, these days, Papa drops off the daily fish while Momma stands by and encourages the duo to
peck away and feed themselves.
The DCEagleCam FAQ section tells us that 8 weeks is when
wing strengthening begins for budding eagles, so much flapping and stretching
should be the main sight in the aerie in the coming days, rather than the
eating, preening and sleeping routine of the past 2 months.
The countdown to independence has begun.

The eaglets are living up to the names I laid on them before
the DCCamera folks held their naming contest. Agita (Glory by public vote)
seems to lie down only when sleeping at night, otherwise it’s pacing,
wing-flapping, dining on Momma’s offering of Pappa’s daily catch, playful pecks
at Ennui and even standing over his dormant sister at night like he’s sitting
These observations are based on brief, hit or miss looks
provided by the sites two cameras and I hope my interpretations are faulty only
because I’ve tuned in at times that are not indicative of their true natures.

It’s a quiet mid-morning as the eaglets lie prone, at
opposite ends of the nest, back to back, like sulking siblings showing their
disdain for the other after a heated squabble.
