:eag: 9:35am - Mama had left the nest a few moments ago... and then Papa came to the nest to feed his eaglets.
He moved the fish to the middle of the nest and Anaaski took advantage of this new spot and
moves to the other side of Papa (away from Ch'aak') :thumlft:
Anaaski waits for the perfect time to grab for food. But, Anaaksi saw a perfect time to reach in and get it's own fish bite! (Red dot)

Anaaski waits until Ch'aak' is busy with a fish bite...and then grabs fish from Papa's beak!

Anaaski keeps getting fish bites from Papa while Ch'aak' watches... (red dot is a big fish bite!)

Both eaglets ate well! :thumlft:

:eag: 3:35pm - Mama arrives to the nest and I'm not sure what she has in her talons.
May be a fish or nesting material. :dunno:

Journi, thanks for posting all those wonderful s'caps of the long feeding yesterday, with that huge fish Mama brought into the nest. I was recording it; I did 2 separate videos because it took a long time. This first video is Mama landing with the fish and feeding Chaak and Anaaski.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzGV30w4buw

The 2nd video, which is Papa coming in to continue the feeding.

:eag: - After a quick check to see what's been going on at the nest today, it looks like
it's been a quiet and restful day for Ch'aak' & Anaaski...
.
2:42pm - Tracking something together...

.
3:30pm - While Ch'aak' sleeps, Anaaski is resting while looking around the nest tree area.

4:15pm - I thought that these looks might lead to a bonk or two, but seems like they were just checking each other out! :D

:eag: 6:03am - Ch'aakk & Anaaski are picking at that brown plastic bag...with a little beaking between them. (red dot = plastic bag)
6055a pickatplastic.JPG
Part of the plastic bag hangs from Ch'aak' beak... :no: (red dot = plastic piece)
605a plastic hangs.JPG
6:04am - As Ch'aak' gets up, we can see that the plastic piece is still attached and hanging from it's beak. :(
(Part of the plastic bag seems to be within Ch'aak's beak, not stuck on it's beak!)

Hi everyone. Still very grateful for all the wonderful coverage of this nest. And I finally found one of the articles about garbage and eagles which I am posting. Watching this nest really brings home the point of this.

:eag: Thank you so much jwin36 for posting that article about eagles eating plastic.
I am dedicated to bringing awareness of what plastic is doing to this planet and all who live here... however I can.
Plastic awareness starts with me and what I have been doing in my own life that has contributed to this global pollution.

.
After this feeding I see that Ch'aak' no longer has that plastic bag piece hanging from it's mouth.
(It's too hard to see if that piece fell from it's mouth during this feeding, or if it was consumed.)

:thumlft: Thank you Dee for capturing this morning feeding video! It really helped to see how
Anaaski grabbed for fish bites by going around Papa to get away from Ch'aak'.

LOL. Bring your own bag- maybe she is going shopping at a store that has stopped giving out free plastic bags.
