5:06 pm Ma is feeding both chicks. Both are eating well.
2020-04-23_19-37-29.jpg
5:11 pm there are two eagles at the first pole and at the first tower. Wonder if this is the reason for all of Ma's vocals. And wonder if one is Trooper. He has flown from the evergreen but I didn't get a s'cap.
2020-04-23_19-37-19.jpg
5:14 pm Ma still feeding the chicks.

5:27 pm at the first pole and first tower. The eagle from the pole and flew to the eagle on the tower. Not sure what happened but looked as if one was trying chase the other away. Could it have been Trooper? Might be as he may be just taking care of business.

5:28 pm the chicks were full and did not want any more. They moved back to the nest bowl. Couple of my observations. Ma is offering larger bites and the chicks are now eating larger bites. The chicks were well behaved and both chicks ate well. They have very nice crops.
