2:57pm........Ma snuck into the nest while I was zoomed in............she has some prey in her talons but I can't tell what it is. Looks wet and fresh, but don't see a whole animal in its shape.

2:58pm.......More of the prey. Doesn't look like something Ma dragged from the nest.....too fresh looking. Quite a bit of meat on it.

3:07pm.....Bella and Coola kept taking turns holding the bone, but kept dropping it. Ma would pick it up, wave it at them, then this would start all over again.

4:21 pm trying to get a close up of Ma but the lighting was off. Then she begins to vocalize and flies down to the nest.

4:21 pm Trooper is in the nest with a bit of food. Think it is Bella who is quick to get over and mantle the little food.

4:21 pm Trooper flies off while Ma gets the little fish ready for the eaglets. I thought Ma knew Trooper was out flying around as when she was on the branch she kept looking around as if she was following him.

4:23 pm that fish is gone quickly. Coola got a few bites and Bella maybe one or two and that is it. No more little fish.

1:59 am in rollback, the west cam goes back to this time and we can see Ma wasn't in the nest. So we have a milestone in that the eaglets spent some of the night alone with Ma probably up in the nest tree. Looking at the rollback, the eaglets slept and moved around a bit. Oh they are growing up. Think it is Bella up at this time with a nice crop drop and PS. Looks like a fish delivery was made last night and the eaglets have nice crops. Note: fish still in the nest.
