I came across this Bald Eagle’s nest while hunting for meteorites in Lancaster, PA.
As you can see there are two young eagles in the nest along with a momma (i think) keeping watch.
Here’s a close up of one of the parents. I few days prior I saw two adults, but when I took this picture there was only one adult at home.
While I was watching and photographing from about 150 yards away, one of the baby eagles started to fly (or at least tried to).
I captured about 100 pictures of this young eagle jumping all over its nest, trying its hardest to make flight. Best it could do was about a foot off the crest of the nest. I sequenced the frames and made a short time lapse video of this eagle learning to fly.
I came back to the nest about a week later and no one was home, so I guess the young ones figured it out.
