Good morning Rita :bye 1:

Image
What a lovely image :love: , first night that the kids sleep on their own I believe. They are big now :yes: . Mum is nearby though, always there to protect :)

When was Dad on the nest last? I haven't seen him for days, its a bit worrying. As is the state of the nest, sloping like that :ohmy: . I wonder if it will be used next year. I watched Kenai nest last year, and the eaglet fell out of the nest because it sort of eroded on that side and was insecure, which was such a tragedy :cry1: . The nest is not being used this year, and its just my opinion but I believe it might have something to do with that :dunno:

10:54 am My best guess is that this is Mom. Cam is too distant and the wind just makes things worse.

12:20 pm Another feeding!

12:51 pm The wind is much stronger now. Even the parent hunkered down during a strong gust. Very concerned about this nest. Especially since you can obviously see that it is slanting more. Not sure how much more wind this nest can take.

1:01 pm The parent flew off. There is no way to get a clear picture today with this wind and at a distance.

I am really concerned about this nest too Rita, I don't remember it being like this at this angle at the beginning. I so wish this wind would stop altogether, for the safety of the nest but also so the eaglets can wingercise more, they so need to do that at this stage to develop all the muscles they will need for flying.
