feeding time over now
they can barely turn the right way or peck right to snag the food.
one of em was being sat on by the other chick during 80 pct of the feeding and thus got little grub. uhoh.
2 hatched - 1 egg remaining.
ur welcome dolly
they had rabbit for supper, so i guess they are napping now.
both parents on the nest.
holy cow - they have a rabbit, a crow, and a fish in the nest now!
make that 2 fishies - dang - what a hunter
in like 10 minutes it brought there meals in
Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season. Merry Christmas.
and Emily Post said you shouldn't serve rabbit and crow together pffft..
oh nooo first I got hooked on the lamb cam. Now this?
Wonderful watching...thank you Sum....I've had it on all afternoon.....Aloha.
aww ive just seen them... its now light out
amazing to watch steve..:)
mouse feeding time
that 3rd egg better hurry up and hatch or he'll be way behind the curve
i'm thinkin that crow brought to the nest yesterday afternoon is more of a symbol than a meal cuz it's still laying there uneaten.
i saw one of the adults pulling some of the feathers off of it, but never saw anyone take even a nibble.
maybe it's a warning to egg swipers to stay away?
it' still laying there on the lower left side of the nest.
wow - did ya know that eagles can turn their necks almost 180 degrees?
that looked like it hurt, but i saw no grimace.
i think that's either a groundhog or a beaver laying ova by the crow now. i didn't see it brought in.
they are running a regular grocery store up there
feeding in progress
the chicks are having groundhog butt for supper
i'm afraid that last egg is doomed - it may not hatch. if it does, the eaglet will be too small to compete for food.
I'm pullin' for that last egg.. COME ON BUDDY YOU CAN DO IT!!!
i am too - but i see the disappointment written on the wall already
where's ally? (just when we need her) to sort out all of this animal stuff.
She's prolly out burning some plastic bottles or sumfin.
It looks cold and windy in that nest.
how do ya determine the sex of an eagle?
i mean, i can tell these two apart. one has a bright white feather on it's back, and the other has way more white in it's tail feathers - but which is the daddy and which is the mother?
i wanna be able to refer to em as him or her.
yeah - the wind at 80 feet up is blowing it uncomfortable cold
The one that talks the most is the girl.
I'm thinking that's the dad on the nest now. He's looking pretty disgruntled. Mom's prolly out shopping again.
thanks - i would have never guessed that
lol - early this morning - whichever one of em spent the night out sleeping on a cold limb came to the nest and wanted the roosting spot.
the current 'rooster' wasn't giving it up though.
I've thoroughly enjoyed watching this .... hope i get to see the third egg hatch
Me too, but I think Steven is right. If it does hatch, it's gonna have a tough time of it.
It is hard to tell the difference unless they are both on the nest. The female is larger than the male. This female has a ridge above her eyes that goes further back than on the male, and her eyes are surrounded by a greyish shadow; the male has a line around his eyes that makes them look “beadier.” Some think that the male’s head is “sleeker” than the female’s.(The female has the white tail)....(Been watching them all yesterday, overnight and today...lol)
i have also enjoyed this fued. something 100 percent different than what i usually do.
but i'm afraid the third egg doesn't have much of a chance.
even if it hatches right this minute, the eaglet will be too weak to contest for enough food at feeding time.
the survival of the fittest. it ain't pretty to watch, but that's how nature works.
k - female has the white tail - i can work with that
the beadier look, i'm not so sure i could tell
let's name em so we know who is who - shy gets first dibbs
name one of em
but all names have to start with an 'E'
Also, it seems that last year they laid 3 eggs....between laying and hatching...the first was 39 days....the second was 39 days and 35 days for the third. We are on day 32 for the third now.
I have to admit, after watching them early hours of this morning (my time)... the two chics were being fed, and the strongest of the two had knocked the weaker one over - basically pushed him/her out of the way in order to have a better advantage in the food line up lol...was sad but like you say up top there - it's survival of the fittest...I just read that both parents will watch and not intervene if the older eaglet were to kill off the younger one (especially if the older one is female).. Sad but all so very interesting to me lol .....
right fued - it's not that they feed the most aggressive chick just to be mean to the weaker one
if ya watch em, it's like they don't even realize that they are ignoring the weak one that is being sat on
just instinct - for the overall benefit of the species, tough as it is to watch
they are off hunting and collecting food with all of their energy
and then when they are mincing it up into bite size pieces the loudest squeak gets the grease
mo groundhog butt bein served now - ick
and now they are tucked in for another nap
does there seem to be a feeding time pattern - anyone know?
For the first little one I like "Enapay" it means brave.
awww - that's excellent!
Enapay it is.
for the 2n'd baby - first come first serve:
name em now with an 'E' name:
and i don't know of any pattern - i think it's when a parent flies in with chow.
Thank you Sum. Been watching now for about 23 hours now continous.
How about Ee-Den. It means delightful.
sweet we have Enapay' (brave) and Ee-Den (delightful) fo the babies.
female just returned to the nest afta a couple of hours out, and with zero food. she's feeding em mo groundhog.
