4/7/2010

The chicks are now one and a half weeks old. On days that are warm and sunny you’ll see the adult sitting above the chicks with wings slightly spread shading the chicks from the sun. The adults are bringing plenty of food to the nest and both chicks are getting their share of the food. In fact, this afternoon both adults were in the nest feeding the chicks! Due to the abundance of food there doesn’t seem to be too much sibling rivalry which can be common in eagle nests with multiple chicks. Eagle chicks grow rapidly adding one pound to their body weight every four or five days. At six weeks of age these chicks will be almost the size of their parents and by twelve weeks of age they’ll be ready to test their wings!



Thank You CWFNJ

Thanks for all the info Maryann,

If I ever knew then I certainly had forgotten that chicks gain a pound every 4 to 5 days. Enjoyed your pictures very much. Grin

My-oh-my, the nest is swaying so much that I think I best stop watching lest I get motion sickness.

7:17pm,
The colors on the nest are always so beautiful.
