The banding of the eagles was pretty interesting the other day. They did mention comparative size--even when young is a consideration in determining sex. Kind of taken out of text, but....

Here are a couple scaps from around 1:00 today. They are getting pretty big, but Liberty is trying to shade them all.

Here's another one. Liberty is actually facing the eaglets, but her head is rotated 90 degrees. She was very interested in something over there and kept watch for quite awhile. In fact she is still looking over there.

One of the eaglets is behind Liberty and keeps pushing her off-balance. Liberty is still focused on something behind her.

Tried to get a "shot" but missed, I guess.

Hey, where is everybody? wave

I turned on the cam this morning and must have just missed a feeding. Liberty was in the nest kind of cleaning up the leftovers. One of the bigger eaglets (the one in the foreground below) was actually being a little aggressive toward Liberty and pecking at her trying to get more food. It looks like Liberty is tearing feathers off whatever the source was and finding little tidbits of meat to share with the eaglets. The leftover appears to be a wing (maybe) of something.

At one point one of the eaglets had its wing over top of Liberty. Seems like they can't control those big flappers. Here is a scap of the family gathering.

Here's a shot of a big wingspan. Pretty blurry, but you can see it is pretty wide.

Can anyone go down to the trail to get a closer look Wednesday around 4 or 4:30?
