Uno Is Branching!

It's not easy to see - but forum member Lavender12 managed to get a screenshot of the golden moment when Uno, the solo eaglet at the Delta 3 nest, branched for the first time!
If you look closely at the right side of the picture, you can see that Uno's tail feathers are above the floor of the nest - which means that his or her feet are, too! Uno accomplished this feat at about 9:04 pm on Sunday, June 14th, when he or she was 67 days old, or about 9-1/2 weeks old.
This screenshot captured by mjb shows the branch from another perspective -
and you can see that it's a fairly small step for a large eaglet - but also a very significant one!
And I think Uno is wondering where to go next!
