Mom goes up above and the eaglet watches her.

Then the eaglet shows Mom that it can move nesting material too. So cute.

The eaglets are now spending more time alone on the nest. They are moving small sticks, preening, napping, and moving nesting material. They weigh
about 6 pounds now. The parents will continue to leave them on their own more and soon they will spend the night on the nest without a parent. There
will be more wingflapping too.

One of the eaglets finally had a direct ps hit on the camera lens. Then the cam was not streaming.

Look at those crops. These two are well-fed.

8:33am The eaglet seems to be self feeding. It is sure the right time for that to start. Then the parent comes in a bit later and feeds them both.

This morning one of the eaglets was testing out those big wings. It did not see to get much air but wingercizing has begun.

So sorry but we have had several ps hits on the camera lens this morning and we now have NO view of the eaglets. It may rain there later this afternoon so perhaps it will clear.
