LOL, even when you think they can't eat another bite, they seem to have room for one or two or three more Smile

As long as they're hungry, she's willing to feed them

Oh Junie, if I posted all the scaps I've captured, I'd be here all day until my eyes crossed, Rolling on floor laughing

It's been so cold and windy in Philadelphia the past few days, the adults have been rocking and rolling while trying to feed the eyasses. And since reading that the Portland Red Tail Hawk nest lost one of their eyasses, I'm worried about this one little one that seems to lay around alot by the window, and not actively participate in the feedings ... at least not that I've seen today! I need to watch more closely!!

More images - May 7th 2010:

A mouse is delivered by the Tiercel, and the eyasses make short work of it!!

If you notice in the images about, when the Tiercel lands, he placed the mouse on a piece of paper that was delivered to the nest around 11:30 CT. The eyeasses were curious about it, one in particular.
