Little E17 and E 18 are now almost seven weeks old. Still being fed by parents, starting to get feathers. Amazing to me how the parents just settled back into caring for them after they returned.

oddly the parents bring random things to the nest. A palm frond, an air plant, some Spanish moss, random sticks, .......

Nine weeks old now and big. Have their dark juvenile feathers and are feeding themselves. One of them has ventured out onto a nest supporting branch

its interesting to read the blog. eagles are thief feeders. Grabbing other birds prey if they don’t find something for themselves. So they will drop food for the two babies to fight over and if they are too slow the parent will grab the food back. Lots of sparring going on between eaglets

but the parents stick close to the nest. There is an owl raising babies across the meadow and that has resulted in some parental sparring
