I bet those new feathers itch worse than new leg hair. There was quite a bit of grooming going on a few minutes ago. Mom or Dad just flew in--must have done a fly by or something just before landing in the nest because all three were erect and following something with their eyes/heads.

Here's a scap from a few minutes ago--before the adult flew in.

hello....

interesting tidbits about eagle feathers .....

"Once the eaglet fledges from the nest it is considered an Juvenile. Juvenile (Juvie) Bald Eagles have slightly longer flight feathers than adult Bald Eagles, so they will appear larger, though their weight is actually slightly less. Longer flight feathers allow the juveniles to be more efficient at soaring long distances. 4thyear eagles are sometimes referred to as "dirty birds"
3rd year eagle develops white under the wing and tail.
2nd year eagle has extensive white on the belly.
1st year eagle are largely brown."

Great info, eagletwatcher. I saw a two year old yesterday then--going from your info. I'll have to write that down. Thanks.

4thyear eagles are sometimes referred to as "dirty birds"

Must be referring to the mascara'd female that tried to have her way with Patriot earlier this year. :oops:

I watched the Hornby nest for a little while today and have it on now. Boy, the Hornby eagle in the nest looks much more vicious than either Patriot or Liberty. I don't think I would get too close to it. Their camera is very close, so the eagles face is really in your face.

Anyway, we all know that Patriot and Liberty are the most beautiful eagles in the world.

Hope they coped well with today's new storm. When is it going to be sunny again?

Eagle Eye...TOO funny! All eagles have that fierce look . It has to do with their brow bone. If you could see this pair that close they would look very similar. The Hornby pair is betwen 25 and 30 years old and still having eaglets! Left thumb up love
