Freedom can take many forms, one of which is the release parents experience when their young ones leave the roost. That of course applies to humans but to these raptors as well.
This pair which I have documented for the past six plus months successfully fledged a young eagle who now is out on their own. That allows the parents, who mate for life, some time to be together.
On this day, the male was hanging out by himself when his mate came over to join him. They then spent some quality alone time as a couple. Well, somewhat alone other than the photographer below who was taking their picture. 😉
Have a great weekend!
