It has been two weeks since the eaglets at The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay hatched. Watching the eaglets hatch and grow has been the highlight of my year so far and I am excited to continue to watch their growth and anticipate them fledging the nest.
Here is a great video (or at least I think it is great) of a family dinner last week. The eaglets are getting fed a steady diet of fish, turtle, and waterfowl about every thirty to forty minutes during the day. Without the benefit of infrared cameras we don't know if they are getting any midnight snacks or not.
I like this video because it shows off the huge "feet" these little eaglets have. All the better to catch fish with later in life with.
