:eag: 6:00am - While Papa starts to aerate the nest bowl area, Ch'aak' starts to bonk Anaaksi...

Seems like Ch'aak' thought that Papa was going to feed them and that is when Ch'aak' started the bonking.
Now, Ch'aak' sees that Papa does not have any fish and is not feeding them right now.
Anaaski stays still while Papa continues to aerate around them.

6:30am - Mama arrives as Ch'aak' & Anaaski are starting to wake up.
The plastic bag at the left of s'cap moved further away from the nesting area as Mama landed.
(It looked like her wing wind-energy caused the bag to move.) :thumlft:

:eag: 7:15am - Mama prepares a fish to feed to her eaglets.
(The one plastic bag that was to the far left of the s'cap earlier was blown off the nest a few moments ago!) :woohoo:

Ch'aak' eats first and is slowing down...Just look at that full crop! (red dot) :thumlft:

And, now that Ch'aak' has slowed down eating...Anaaski is now eating in peace.

Hi Journi Thanks for posting the link to Dee's video. I managed to catch the 'fledge' of the last piece of plastic on a short video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu2ABenymHc

I watched the nest off and on today while I was doing laundry. Poppa brought a big chunk of moss and Momma seemed a bit annoyed and tried to move it out of the way.
