Good morning, Maryann, and thanks for the morning report. Grin

9:05 am
There's another feeding going on now. They were definitely a bit rambunctious while they were waiting, and I observed a bit of sibling rivalry, but now they're more focused on the adult with the food than pecking at each other. And as I was typing, #1 turned and pecked at #2 - oh well! It does look like normal behavior for this age and stage, as opposed to the more aggressive behavior seen on occasion, so I'm not worried about it.

Feeding time for two happy little chicks. love

They're both up, and taking turns nicely (for the most part Titter). Nice to see the sun.

The second adult just arrived!

Looks as if he 's now preparing the food and passing it to Mom to serve

And now the one who had been brooding (I think Mom) has left, and Dad(?) has taken over nest duty.

Hi JudyB You're right I think this is Dad in the nest now. I beginning to
tell the parents apart a little better now. Dad's head feathers are whiter than mom's and the top
of his head is rounder than Mom's. Her head is alot wider and flatter.

Thank You for your reports today. I got a giggle when you said they were taking turns (for the most part)Grin

It turned out to be a beautiful clear day and the forecast looks good too!

4:50pm
Dad still in the nest...Mom must be taking her much needed Spa break Wink

Thanks for the ID info, Maryann - must admit it's easier for me to guess when I can see both.

There was another feeding a couple of minutes ago, and now they're tucked in for a little nap. The nest is gently moving with the breeze - much nicer than yesterday. Smile

Good morning, wave

7:19 am,
Both parents were on the nest. Mom fed BB a few bites while Dad fluffed the nest cup. LB faced Dad rather than Mom hoping for food. Mom flew off about the time LB figured out that Dad was not serving breakfast; LB had finally turned to face Mom but she left. Dad settled down with the 'lets.

BB gets fed.

Good afternoon!

I've been watching a nice feeding - haven't been keeping count, but both seem to be getting a good amount. love

Added - 5:23 pm
I'm not sure, but I think there might have been a switch. I saw a flash as the eagle who had been there left, then got a s'cap of two sleepy little eaglets, then a moment later an adult arrived on the far side of the nest and is busily eating - and both plump little chicks are sacked out and paying no attention whatsoever. love
