Happy Saturday and glad to see the forum is back too

The timing of the forum going down and the cam getting a perfect PS on it were almost the same... we need a nice hard rain, Rain but so far just some light rain
and it has gotten a lot of it off so.. for now we can sort of see the eagles and kids in the nest

a little self feeding going on in the back ground here, a little hard to tell but this eaglet is pulling off bites Grin

Click on image to download

Eaglets are 43 and 42 days today, at this point the male eaglet can weigh about 7lbs the female about 9lbs. The eaglet is about 3 feet tall and the wing span is 4-5 ft. The eaglet is self feeding. Sexual dimorphism is clear in the foot pad and bill depth measurements.. and when the lens clears we should be able to see that clearly. The measurements of the bill depth and hallux claw (the back toe) can indicate the sex of the eaglet. Bill depth on males is about 1.14" and the females about 1.24". The foot pad on males is about 5.13" and the female is about 5.8" and the Tarsus (leg) is about full juvenile length and width.
