This baby Bald Eagle landed at our doorstep one evening recently. He/she tried to fly but couldn't manage to lift off. He waddled down the path toward a more open area and stayed there just looking around. In the morning we came across him perched on a tree that had fallen over in a wind storm. When he saw us, he spread his wings and flew down the hill. It seemed he needed a clear spot and a higher elevation to get started. Happy ending.
