Little Eaglet "Gigi" Flies for the First Time

"Gigi" one of this year's eaglets has flown off the nest.  Today I saw her perched on a tree, about 100 yards from the her nest.  The old tree, standing right next to the river is a prime hunting spot for the mature eagles .. her parents, "Virginia" and "James."  I know they must be quite proud.  It was an incredible thing to see that eaglet go from a bobble head on March 28 to first flight on May 22, 2010.  -- Capt.
