I saw the end of their feeding time this morning before they got sat on again and thought... maybe they don't like fish that much because they weren't fighting over it at all...so I take this to mean they all got full enough Smiley

I think sushi is the best thing they get .. the bunny was a little rough to watch get fed

LOL @ "got sat on again"  .. it's cute when they wriggle out from under her and peek out Grin

I hope the other 2 gang up on the bully one time from both sides .. it bothers me to watch him peck so hard at his siblings  Angry

Bald eagle's nest is large and called 'eyrie'. It is located at the top of tall trees or on cliffs. Eagles return to breed on the same site year after year, adding new materials. Then, nest becomes larger, and can reach 10 feet in diameter and one ton in weight. It is made with twigs and leaves, and lined with finer wood materials, mosses, grasses and feathers.
Female lays 1 to 3 dull white eggs. Incubation lasts about 31 to 45 days by both adults. During this time, one parent remains always on the nest, to protect eggs from predators (squirrels, ravens, gulls...). Male brings food to the nest and sometimes, female shares hunting after the first days at nest. Young are fed and brooded by both parents until the first flight, at about 12 weeks. Eaglets are full size at 12 weeks of age, and they can fly well at three months old.Only 50% of young survive the first year. If two chicks hatch, the older will kill the smaller one. It is not uncommon. Parents don't make efforts to stop this behaviour.

OK one last view (of the thread only) for now...until they are all big enough not to kill each other. Embarrassed

Princess L should be in charge of telling us if it's OK.  Also, she should tell us it's OK even if it isn't.   Smiley

They're feeding right now.  Good camera angle.  

Everyone got fed!

The camera guy was panning around.  It was a horse I saw a couple of weeks ago!

It is an awesome piece .. and yes I agree .. STella better not watch it

The wind is rough at the nest today ... you can see the swaying .. must be the camera is on a lighter branch .. I wonder why they don't make the nest's deeper to protect more from the wind .. must be to keep the view open for the parents to watch for predators ?
