11:01 am - another view from the E Cam as the eaglet mantles the food....I'm seeing lots of white in the tail so think that is Coola that got to it first...Bella is on the left

Ma was still up in the tree at this time...Trooper still on the nest

Coola still with the food, and Bella turning away

11:02 am - and had to stop the rollback to grab these s'caps of Coola taking that rodent and basically eating it whole....s/he may have had a couple bites before this but this was the last. We can see too that Trooper is grabbing a bite of the previous meal for himself. At this point Bella is in the back corner of the nest

Struggling to get s'caps from the rollback....having to close out twice already because it keeps stopping as I'm trying to go back and it keeps stalling....

11:04 am - okay so this eaglet that is spreading their wings is the one that just got the last meal and I was calling them Coola...but as time goes by I am just not confident I can ID these two.....but will keep this one as Coola for now.

She hop/flies over to the front rail

Bella comes over to see if there are any leftovers....there are but it is from the previous delivery by Ma...I only thought there were bones left of that portion but Bella must have found some meat there

11:31 am - found an adult on the distant evergreen
2019-06-18 14_31_31-Greenshot.jpg
11:35 am - Trooper comes in with a small rodent...one of the eaglets grabs it
2019-06-18 14_58_17-Greenshot.jpg
Now here is where I get confused as to who is who.....just look at these tails....now the one on the left has a bright white spot on their tail, and the other has more white just spread out on it...hmmm, so, not sure who got this snack but guessing, due to the size of the coloring on the tip of the tail that it is Bella...but I'm sure I'm wrong.

11:40 am - again...one of the adults is in with another small rodent and the eaglet on the right gets this one....so I guess since they are both eating that's a good thing....but I sure wish I could ID the eaglets correctly.

11:40 am - I'm thinking this is Trooper that brought the last two rodents in and that it was him on the distant evergreen....maybe something is happening back in the field there that is bringing them out and they are easy catches for Trooper...who knows...but Trooper was breathing heavily, and like a few days ago or so, sounded like he had a frog in his throat as he was breathing so hard.

11:40 am - and 5 seconds later an adult comes in with yet another rodent...I assume....didn't get a s'cap of it because I was zooming in on the previous rodent and didn't even know another adult came in until I went to the rollback
2019-06-18 15_03_42-Greenshot.jpg
And, since the eaglet on the right was still busy with the last rodent, this one went to the eaglet on the left....
2019-06-18 15_03_44-Greenshot.jpg
So, I'm assuming this is Ma because I find it impossible that Trooper could have flown off, caught another rodent, and got back to the nest in 5 seconds.

11:42 am - the eaglet that had the white dot on their tail (they were on the left in the previous s'caps....from the E Cam view), I think that is Bella....s/he kept moving around with their snack...not eating it but maybe just trying to figure it out....kept going to the back of the nest and then back over to the front of the nest carrying the thing with them the entire time....this all while Coola was eating her snack
2019-06-18 15_18_04-Greenshot.jpg
11:42 am - and then another snack comes in...really can't keep up with these food deliveries
2019-06-18 15_18_59-Greenshot.jpg
And since Bella was busy playing around with h/h snack, this one went to Coola
2019-06-18 15_19_01-Greenshot.jpg
11:45 am - okay at this point I had logged off the cams because I was so far behind in posting....and will continue to post as it looks like there was another food delivery. :clap: :donpan:

11:47 am - another food delivery...you can see it in their beak as they fly in
2019-06-18 15_27_30-Greenshot.jpg
Looks like Bella got this one
2019-06-18 15_27_35-Greenshot.jpg
But then the adult goes to the back of the nest and finds the one that Bella had left there earlier....soooo...the adult feeds Coola that one

Hi Jean, yes, Trooper is the best....he must love grabbing those little rodents.

11:52 am - Trooper in again with another rodent....losing track, but I think this is Coola that gets it

2019-06-18 15_36_58-Greenshot.jpg
Then drops it....thinking Trooper is going to feed them

1:37pm.........Checked the rollback..............Sue, and adult did come back to the nest after your post.............think it was Trooper. He did feed both eaglets some food before going up onto a branch.

1:47pm......From the rollback.............At 12:20pm a small rodent was brought to the nest..........looked maybe like a mouse. One eaglet grabbed it quickly, but did not eat it.

1:48pm........From the rollback..............Since that eaglet was not eating it.......didn't seem all that interested as it was likely full from all the food this morning..............so the sibling ran forward to take it and did eat it.

From the rollback............At 1:10pm..........In again.......more food and no one interested.

2:19pm.......Haven't had any time to figure out who the adults were.. :donpan: ..........was it Trooper here every time or did Ma help too? :dunno:

This adult is still in the nest looking around...............there is a lot of prey in the nest.........a closer look reveals a lot of long tails but the prey seems to have lots of fur.
