Thanks for the pic, Donna - I do think it's quite amazing that she can fit so much of three large eaglets inside! Grin

I just have 3 from today. It was rainy at Decorah all day with all three great big eaglets trying to get under the mumbrella. That led to three wet and begraggled 'lets!


Boy! That fish looks awfully good. Now all we need is a parental unit!

FINALLY!! We are such hungry eaglets!!

Wonderful pictures and captions, Mary - thanks so much! (I love "please - it's nap time!" Titter) I don't think we can call Littlest "Very Little" anymore - I was so amazed to see him do a close-up yesterday and realize just how big he's getting! I had to look several times - but the others had more dark feathers, so it really was the eaglet once known as "very little bit"! love

JudyB...I think I will change the name to "youngest" for as long as I can tell the difference. He really has grown and caught up to the others lately. I'm glad that you and I are enjoying this wonderful nest full of calm and beautiful 'lets!! love I don't know what happened to the two pwople from Iowa who used to post here. The others don't know what they are missing here!!

Lots of pics from the 12th of May. It was ANOTHER rainy day and they did spend most of the day either in a lump or under Mom...sort of! Grin


From the side the youngest one is really starting to look like an eagle--check the beak and eagle eye!

Feathers are more developed today. The oldest is really getting black, middlest is more feathered and the youngest is showing a lot of black "dots".

It started to rain and Mom was doing her best to cover her big kids.

Thanks for the pictures, Mary. Appreciate how you explained how to tell the triplets apart from one another too. Your word, "Middlest", tickled me. Titter

Here are some pix from the 16th that I was too sleepy last night to post! Wink


Here are Middlest(the dark one) and Youngest posing for the cam with their big yellow feet! It looks like the youngest one has caught up in size to the middle one.

Here is the oldest one doing some wing work. Look at those blood feather on the inside of the wing!! Click it bigger to get a good look.

Wonderful pictures, Mary! That is a great look at the blood feathers! Wonderful close-ups of the oldest - it does look as if she is striking a pose! And it is amazing how fast the youngest is catching up in size to the older ones. Grin
