During nesting season the offspring from previous years seem to come back to visit their Ma & Pa.I’m not really sure “why”,but find it interesting. Maybe to see If their parents are still around?If they are not,they may inherit the family territory?
To tell the age of Immatures like this,I always look at the tail feathers. More white means it’s older.This one hardly has any white at all.Which means it was born last year.By the time they reach 5 years old,this tail feathers will be almost all white. A eagle has 7000 feathers but only 12 will be the white tail feathers.
To find a white tail feather will grant you a dream journey.
Maggie was not very happy that their offspring was flying about.She was protesting loudly! If this eagle wasn’t one of their own,she would of taken to the air to push it out of her territory!
