I am so sorry to hear of the loss of the second chick - I haven't been watching this year, but it did sound as if he or she was off to a good start.

Rest in peace, little ones - and my sympathy to all who have been following this nest. sad

155 pm
Dad flew into the nest; he retrieved the leftover squirrel
from the nest and started to eat it.

A few minutes later Mom flies in and she takes the meal
from him and she starts to eat it. She does not like to share lol.

Dad exits the nest and Mom continues to eat the leftover squirrel.

Yesterday they cleaned up the nest and ate the leftover fish.
Always good to keep the nest tidy otherwise it may attract predators.

220 pm
Mom exits the nest with some leftover meat
then we hear what sounds like juvenile or sub adult eagle
calls from the attic.

I recorded the sounds ... definitely sounds like a different bird
then our pair. No visuals in the nest.

hi Deb, just back from the wake, earlier I was watching the nest, dad had come at about 145pm and went to 11 and ate something before mom showed up about 4 minutes later, mom took the rest of dads food and was eating it very hungrily Grin while dad stood close by looking very sad. dad flew off after a few min., mom continued eating, til finished. Now sitting at 11 just looking out, canít see her head. Is 204pm and I have to leave in few min. to go to a wake, be back later. Poor mom must be thinking about all that has happened this past week, having two eggs and two chicks and now nothing, very sad for her. Leaving now, mom still sitting looking outward at 11 so sad watching her
