9:12 am - Sorry, but this post is out of sequence but I just remembered this and wanted to mention it....when Trooper came in with the small rodent he was very out of breath and was breathing so heavily that it sounded like a frog was on the nest.....so I got some close ups of him too.

In this one I noticed a slight pink tint in the right side of his eye...outside the black outer line, closest to the yellow eye lid. He was quick to turn so I had to go back and pause it to get the best shot

9:35 am - I logged off the cams at this time....sorry, was a little behind in posting and the rollback is just not working for me and takes me forever to grab s'caps. I have to run now. Everyone have a great day!

Adult lands in the nest at this time. I couldn't see if they brought anything in but they did start feeding one of the eaglets bites soon after.

In rollback, adult leaves, arrives back (or perhaps it's other adult)... again it doesn't really look like anything was brought in and the eaglets don't immediately rush adult but at some point one of them makes a move to grab something (it may have been there already).

Adult then leaves nest and it appears one of the eaglets is self-feeding with other watching on and attempting a steal (rebuked) but eventually successful, although I can't tell if there's really anything left at that point.

2:21 pm checked the rollback since Rose's last post and the eaglets just lying around the nest.

Hi Rose! I think our adult pulled this out of the nest at that time.....this is what it was feeding the eaglets........looks like a chunk of leftover fish.

3:10pm.....Comparison of heads.........Bella is sleeker and smaller...............Coola is bigger and rounder, more filled out. This has to be Coola on the left and Bella on the right.

Based on this, do you think Bella is more likely a male and Coola a female ( I think this was talked about before)?
