6:13 pm with the feeding finished, the eaglets settle in. Chick #2 has a PS and Ma is moving sticks on the railing. Bot eaglets have nice crops.

6:19 pm now I have lost track of which eaglet is which but one of them is helping Ma with the stick. And sitting really tall next to Ma. Both are now sleeping. Edit: looks like it is chick #1 sitting tall.

6:54 am can see chick #2 sleeping. Looks like there is a piece of trash stuck in his/her beak. All we can see of chick #1 is his/her little round bottom. Both look to be in a food coma.

With the food behind her (out of view in these scaps) Ma sees if the eaglets are interested in eating more... she has to walk all the way over to see... even then the interest doesn't seem great.

There is something strange going on with the East embedded Cam. It is getting darker and darker without switching to night vision, BUT the oddest part is it will now allow the magnification to be changed from 1.5X. no matter which direction I face the camera in. Because of this there was no point trying to see if Trooper went into the stick tree because the cam would not zoom in any further.
Frustrating.

The West cam has now switched to night vision but the East one is not going to at all by the look of it.

9:17pm....Thanks for finishing up here tonight Rose! That E cam is black but it looks as if maybe the night vision hasn't kicked in. Cam is likely still streaming.

One of the chicks stirred and Ma lifted up her head..............all is well and she has gone back to sleep now.

Yes, a weirdly frustrating evening end on the cam especially because lately they've been acting good for the most part I think, oh well. :dunno:
