Good morning everyone, :wave:
Quiet and everyone is still asleep as I checked in today.
MJN, the nest is pretty much the same as last year. This nest is huge and very flat compared to some of the other nests I have watched. But, I am new to eagle watching. I asked lots of questions and read all the active forums. The moderators, topic assistants and everyone else are extremely informative, patient and nice. And I would have to say that everyone is still learning.
So, ask away and if you want to watch other nests the links to them are in each forum thread.
You can see what the nest looked like last year if you go back to the beginning of this thread and scroll through.
:bye 1:
okay - thank you. I have been watching some other nests also off and on since Feb. this year, esp. since the hatchlings appeared. :rh:

Hi,
Very good clear cam this morning. So I took a scap of the nest

You can see that the edges of the nest ( the rails) are falling apart. I think it is probably fine for the rest of this season but it will definitely need some work for next year.

So glad only 8 feet off ground, plus looks like lots of underbrush to catch a fall. :love:

:wave: Hi,
It looks like they cleaned the cam lens. Nice sharp scap of the family.

Hi,
This scap shows what a difference a few days can make in the fluff and feather development. On the left is the youngest and you can see the other two are much darker.

Good afternoon Jwin, MJN, Kitcat and everyone else. I haven't checked on these three for awhile. Amazed at how fast they're growing. I did catch Dad feeding them from earlier.

Good morning everyone. :wave:
These eaglets just don't want to pose. So here is another scap of perfectly camouflaged eaglets on a nest. :yes:
2019-04-17 10_57_46-Fraser Point Bald Eagle Camera powered by EXPLORE.org - YouTube.jpg
They are being well fed and they sleep and grow a lot. It will be more exciting in a short while when they start wingersizing and fly hopping all over the nest.
This is a nice nest to watch to see them branch. There are so many great branches very close.
Have a nice day everyone and thanks for any comments and scaps.

Good Morning Everyone. I'll be looking forward to them branching, Jwin. I peeked in this morning and seen Mom and Dad both watching over the nest. I do believe those mice were annoying Mom.

Hi everyone. So nice to see your videos, elaine. I cannot catch these three in closeups. :no: I don't even know if they zoom in anymore. I haven't seen that in the past few days. :dunno:
But even at a distance these three make a cute cuddle of eaglets. :rh: :rh: :rh:

They are still growing and getting more and more feathers.

Hi, elaine, MJN, and everyone else.
Nice feeding again.
Fraser1042119.jpg
Everyone got food. Eaglets are doing limited self feeding. The 2 older ones look much darker than #3. But that is to be expected.
A nice holiday to everyone.

Hi again. Do you remember how many days after #2 was #3 born?
I am thinking he/she is extra slow catching up. with dark feathers besides that fact, like a premature baby, perhaps because other 2 hogged almost all the feedings at first?
Also I think I read somewhere that parent names are Cruz and Spirit. Is that right? MJN (Marti)

Hi, MJN, you are correct about the eagles names. And March 9, 11 and 14 are the hatch dates. So that is 5 days difference between the oldest and youngest which is a lot of time for an eaglet.
It is pretty normal for the youngest to look so much younger. And they do usually get less food for a short while. But after watching these 3 eat I think they are all getting as much food as they need. If number 3 is a male and the other 2 are female there will also seem to be a difference in size and development. The females tend to be larger and more aggressive.
It is so interesting to watch them as they develop. I hope you are enjoying it.

Thanks for quick reply. I have not been worried about the youngest for the last few weeks.
It is just the 3 day difference between #2 and #3 is equalling a much longer difference in growing black feathers.
I am a detail oriented person so curious about lots of stuff! :D

Hi everyone,
Looking in today I notice that #3 is looking much darker. It seems to happen so quickly.
They are all fine, well fed and rested. The weather is gorgeous.
MJN, you must read some of the other nest threads. There isn't much that is usual. Each eaglet is different and grows in their own time and way. I am constantly learning and this forum is such a good source of information. And there are so many great pictures.

Good Morning Jwin , MJN and everyone else. They sure seem to be getting plenty to eat. This video is from a few feedings this morning. Boy, that little one sure can put away the food.

I do see a lot of other nests with young ones, but this is my favorite because have been watching 3 grow up instead of 1 or 2. :w00t:

Hi,
Thanks to the zoomer for this great look at Cruz and Spirit.
Fraser1042319.jpg
It is so nice to see both at the nest.
MJN, you might like the Dale Hollow nest. There are 3 eaglets there. They are fun to watch.

Marti, Another fun nest to follow is the stewardsumrr.org trio nest. This one is really unique in that it has 2 males, Valor I and Valor II and 1 female Starr who are all bonded. They have 3 eaglets too. Here is the youtube link https://m.youtube.com/user/stewardsumrr

They are getting quite big. The nest is really falling apart. I hope it lasts long enough for them to fledge. At least there are many branches for them to fledge on.
