Congratulations, Sulvi!
What an eaglet! :loveshower:
I was happy that she was out of the danger zone now, that, if she would slip from a branch, she would be old enough to fly...

But this amazing and courageous girl decided to fledge in a beautiful way!

What a surprise!
already flown out?!
a bit early, :book: at least 80 days were promised :puzzled: :wink:
a bit early, yes. the average is 11 weeks - 80 days. that's an average, not a 'promise'.
Sulvi is now 74 days old which is a little less than 11 weeks. i don't know how accurately the average is known.
edit: one of my books (W. Fischer: Die Seeadler, p. 68) says:
" Die Nestlingzeit liegt zwischen 70 un 90 Tagen.", that is 'the nestling time is 70 - 90 days.'

i have written about this question often before. you will find these posts using the search keyword searchfledging.

Thank you Liz :thumbs:

The same thing in a form of three pictures.

This is an old picture from June 14, when the lens was still clear.

This is from the moment, when we see the last glimpse of Sulvi’s tail. (those obscure white dots near the head of the arrow)

Here the landing point (or actually the vanishing point) is marked to the old, but clear picture, showing us better the trees there.

Good job! I hope Sulvi rests this night somewhere on a very flat and big and even surface where she can lay down and really streeetch her legs and wings! :thumbs:

Liz01 :hi: Thanks a lot for ALL your videos! I just ran into an old one (2018/04/28 8:08am), where a living duck escapes from the nest. It's fantastic! :slap: I hadn't seen it before, because I started following the nest later. Apparently there's yet a lot to be discovered :D

She would be fine on the ground, too, a big bird. Which animal could threaten her? :) She is supposed to be out of the nest now, of course visiting regularly, is she prefers the old branches to new ones.

That was a short pleasure for the poor duck. Sulvi brought her back- dead! :slap:

A eagle young like that have threats on the ground by foxes and other bigger predators, but i hope you are right thou :unsure:

Oh, don't worry! The parents surely know where she is by now!
They see and hear extremely well.
And they will feed her and train her flying and hunting skills for many more weeks.
Till autumn, at least.

I'm not convinced at all that Sulvi will return to the remains of the nest.
Why would she? There's no real nest anymore, only a couple of branches.
(With a bit of luck we will maybe see a visit, once or twice, not much more, I believe.) There are plenty of branches to sleep on. She can eat anywhere. There's so much to discover. She's a free bird now!

Good luck, dear Sulvi!

Dear Liz! Thank you so much for your videos! I have a question: Would it be possible to make a somewhat longer video with the minutes before the flight? Maybe three to four minutes long? I would like to post this in my community which I have on Google+. If it's not possible don't worry, just wanted to ask :chick:

Konrad :hi: Thanks for the pictures for comparison! That's great. I think there are enough good trees for her :2thumbsup:

It is always good to be optimistic, but I am afraid Sulvi is not yet very good in defending herself. After all, she is still a 74 day old baby. :D

The worst thing on the ground is, that the terrain can be very difficult for a big bird. If there happens to grow for example lots of willows, two-meter tall young trees of other species and tall grass plants, it is obviously not easy to get into air from there. But let’s hope Sulvi ended to some tree branch. :thumbs:
