Two New Bald Eagles Spotted Above Gig Harbor
(July 1, 2009)
Two new bald eagles have made their fledgling flight today in the skies above Gig Harbor. Their screeching could be heard first – drawing my eyes skyward to spot two white tipped tails circling above the Crescent Valley area bordering Gig Harbor. Their bodies are still tan colored and their flight somewhat awkward.
One eagle managed a perfect hover for a several seconds before reaching flight stall speed. . .and then began fluttering his wings in a most undignified fashion to maintain height. These birds were spotted west of Crescent Valley road near 110th Ave NW.
Let us know if you see them.
