wave Good morning,

7:52 am,
Mom just left the nest. "Very Middle" (thank you JudyB) has found a comfy pillow for his head. VB has been playing with a corn stalk. VL was enjoying the scenery but he buried his head because VB was making too much noise with the corn stalk.

Well fed Eaglets - VM in action. So cute when he "winds-up" (thanks for the term Soph9).

Not to be outdone - VL's poo shot. VL does not look so very little in this s'cap. Believe that I did see peck marks on his/her head though.

They had a nice lunch of fish and after lunch I saw that the little one is still quite a bit smaller than the biggest.

A nice nap after lunch in the shade...except for the wee one who has a tale to tell Mom.

Great pictures - thanks so much, Mary! I love the family picture - hardly ever get both adults so you can see their heads! Grin

I didn't have time to post pictures last night - will try to catch up on a couple of nests tonight.

I LOVE the family picture where the three little ones are sleeping. It looks like they have their heads buried in the nest. Kind of the like the one from the other day where they buried their heads like ostriches.

It's still "spring" here, so it's been cool the last couple days. And it got a little breezy by the end of the day today. Sounds like we've got more rain in the forecast for later tomorrow and into Friday. So be prepared for some rainy weather again.

Thanks for posting all of the pics. It's fun to see what I miss during the day.

Wonderful pictures! Left thumb up

One of the adults just brought in a whole pile of fluff, and one of the bigger eaglets was "helping" spread it about the nest - this nest so much fun to watch! Grin

I have quite a few from today, 5/2/10...bear with me!


Look at how lumpy looking the biggest(?) one is. Hopefully that's her feathers starting to come through!

This is a pretty good shot of the feathers coming in along the edge of the oldest one's wing. (click to see it bigger)

Whistling three more!!


Here is the smallest one behind the middle one. The angle of the shot makes it look really small by comparison.
