So glad you were able to get pictures of Little trying to self-feed, eaglet! Even though it's a refresh cam, I could see him lifting up the fish as he tried to pull pieces off. Not sure how much he got - but he definitely has the right idea! Grin

I did think it was a bit impolite of the adult to grab the food away - even if he/she did do a bit of feeding afterwards. Titter

I really don't have any way to tell the adults apart. I know that females typically spend more time on the nest at this age - but don't know if that's true here.

No, eaglet; sorry, I don't have an easy way to tell the adults apart. It's easier to tell the difference when we see them together. Adore your self feeding picture.

Good morning!

Here's yesterday's slideshow - the highlight is Little learning to feed himself. I'm afraid there's quite a bit of overlap with your wonderful pics, eaglet - I do apologize for that, but also post my slideshows in a couple of other places that don't have as many pics as we do here.

Enjoyed your slideshow very much, JudyB. Your captions bring the pictures to life. These guys are so cute!

Started watching the eaglets at 7:12 am this morning. Finally a parent came into view; there was a brief feeding (none for Little). The 'lets sparred a good share of the time that I was watching. Believe they have tuckered themselves out finally. Am wondering if we may have 2 female eaglets; seems that Little is getting aggressive; or, learning to defend himself. Hmmm...

7:45 am (s'caps are time-stamped using PST),
Sparring again.

Good morning! Judy, I second what CAL said about the slideshows, I LOVE them! Smile

CAL, I noticed Little getting aggressive/defending him/herself too. It was hard to watch, but good to see. If that makes sense.

10:43 friends again.
