Eagle Eyes

-A A +A

East 120th Avenue near E-470 was jammed with onlookers last week hoping to witness a young bald eagle leave the nest for the very first time.

Officials with the Raptor Education Foundation located nearby speculate the newborn eaglet may be the child of first-time parents and as such have not yet developed the skills to coax the fledgling from the nest.

The young eagle was expected to fly for the first time nearly two weeks ago but is still nestbound to the delight of onlookers.
