Hi everyone wave

I am happy to say that the Fledge Fest was a huge success. WooHoo
I had such a great day, one of the very best days I've had this year.
All the people I met were so very nice and interesting to talk to.
A huge hug right back at you elle, Wink

Yes I can say that eagle lovers are a special bunch of people.
I am so glad I met you all. hug
Thank you Karen for making it all possible for us to meet and thank you Betty Ann for having us and for the eagle cams.

Sharon your name tags were so very nice, thank you so much.
I must say, I, along with others I talked with really really missed you.
There are others I would have loved to meet but maybe another time.

Video Camera Thank you for all the lovely pictures Shrub, Mjb, Sharon, Urban Eagle, mmud, stim and edkeagle, ( I hope I did not forget anyone. )

Your song JudyB and Charlie really stuck with me and as a singer songwriter I can say it was a hit song. Bravo
I hope you will enjoy yourselves some more here in our part of the woods and I hope you will have a safe trip home.
Thank you for coming all the way from Maine to see us.

David gave us a lovely talk. Thank You

I loved the food and even took seconds.
While we were eating we got to see Driver and Putter on the screen and
after the meal we saw our eaglets live.
That was a trip all on it's own.
How grown up they are now and so majestic. Wub

One very nice man that works at the golf course ( I forgot his name Puzzled) drove me around with a golf cart. Titter

When it was time to go home, a lovely eagle and I think it must have been a parent of Driver and Putter, sat right on a tree we had to pass to go to our cars to give us his/hers farewell. Sitting eagle

We had another great FledgeFest celebration.Grin It was great seeing the people I knew, especially David and also meeting new forum members. Wonderful Judy that you and Charlie were able to attend. We missed you Sharon and thank you so much for making all the name tags. Thanks to Karen for organizing the FledgeFest, I know what goes into organizing events like this.

I am posting some pics and a video that our son Gary took.

Two pics of our Harrison eaglets.

Good day! I have a few pics to post from the initial meeting near the nest around 11:30 at FledgeFest.
This first one finds the eaglets on the same branch which bounced under them without them stretching their wings. It made me wonder if it is the BB if that stands for bouncy branch. I cropped it to show relation to the nest. Eaglets are hidden to the top right. Thank goodness they gave us a wing show as they were quite hidden.

I love how the lower let is watching all the activity above.

Wings on the eaglet on the left are perfectly defined by tree branches.

I had a wonderful time at Fledge Fest! I almost wasn't able to make it. It was the most perfect day: wonderful friends, amazing weather, oohs and awws when Putter and Driver wingersized, delicious food, a fun singalong and a passionate speech from David. He had me in tears! Thank you to everyone who organized the event.
