Jasper the eaglet to be released Sept. 1
For about three months this spring, visitors to Rock Creek State Park got to see firsthand — an in real life — what many could only see on the Internet.
A pair of eagles nested in one of the dead trees in the midst of the Deppe addition at Rock Creek State Park. A crest in a road 200 yards away afforded visitors with the ability to see inside the nest. Travelers from near and far came out to take a peek.
“The eagle parents demonstrated great caring as the first egg hatched and then the second,” the Rev. David F. Raymond of Newton said. “People watched as the little eaglets grew and grew, exercising their unruly wings until it looked as if they were only weeks away from being ready to fledge and go out on their own.”
