I have dubbed these two eaglets, Challenger (L) and Freedom (R). In a matter of weeks these birds will take their first flight from the security of their nest into an unknown world that awaits their discovery. Photograph taken June 18, 2019 at age 53 days.

This is Challenger, the Bald Eagle youngster at 53-days of age. Challenger likes to occupy the left side of the nest, as that's where the parents fly into and drop off food supplies. His sibling and nest-mate, Freedom (not pictured) prefers life on the right side of the nest.
