8:03 am in rollback, Trooper eating some fish for himself and feeding one of the eaglets. The other eaglet pulled a fish delivered earlier away and begins to pick at it. Boy, the squees from these two.

Happy 2 month birthday to Bella! :cake:

A feeding by Ma to one of the eaglets while the other just appears to watch... at the end the one that didn't get any bites came over to eat a last leftover piece of the fish, by the look of it.

5:14 pm checked rollback and Bella and Coola doing what eaglets do on a nice afternoon. That is sleeping, growing, standing, wingersizing or picking at a fish.
