:eag: 4:14pm - While this s'cap seems peaceful...there has been a lot of bonking going on from Ch'aak'...but,
I did see one time where Anaaski bonked Ch'aak' right back! It just seems like Ch'aak' is in the bonking mood this afternoon! :(

4:15pm - Ch'aak' (on the left) and Anaaski are checking each other out and then...
61919 415pm ee look.PNG
BONK! Ch'aak' bonks Anaaski!

4:16pm - Well...guess who decided they have had enough bonking! Anaaski sized up Ch'aak' and then BONKED Ch'aak'! :thumlft:

Mama is very careful getting up... using her balled-up talons so to not step on her eaglets as she moves away from them.
Ch'aak' & Anaaski remain sleeping.

:eag: :arrow: I went over to the live chat just now and saw that Glacier Gardens posted this statement:

Glacier Gardens:
"​It is trash day here, so our best guess is someone put their trash out too early, a bear dumped it, and the eagles took the opportunity for some free food."

I am loving the two little GG's - so adorable, and growing so quickly.

I hate to see that plastic bag on the nest, though.

:wave: Hi Laniebelle! It's so good to see you here...Thanks for your post!
Yes... I had to go take a little break after I saw and watched what Mama did with that plastic bag!
I sure hope some wind comes through, soon, and blows it off the nest!
(Hopefully the wind will carry it far away from the nest tree area where it can be discarded properly)! :luck:

Have a great day Lanie! :bye 1: ~Journi
