It took me quite a while to find the time to post these scaps. I know they have grown some since the 7th. It's sort of a day in the life of the Notre Dame eaglets. :)

Nicely waiting in line for breakfast

There 2 eaglets behaved all day until late afternoon when the big one decided it would be a good idea. It bonked the heck out of the little one and then stood back to take a look :D

After the nap Big decided it would be a good idea to bonk the little one again who landed on it's back in a hole. Look at those tiny feet and the belly button too

Little struggled hard to get out of that hole but was constantly bonked!

Mom was brilliant---she covered little with a corn husk so big could not get at it to do any more bonking and fed big! Little was finally able to turn over and wiggle out of the hole---good job Mom and little. (I lost the scap)

Here comes little to get a reward for a job well done. :love:

These little ones really have not changed much in 3 days. Frankly--they don't get a lot to eat when I have been watching. They get enough to give them small partly filled crops and that's it--especially the little one.

Mom does a big stretch and gets up

Silly Dad covered the eaglets with grass---maybe it's chilly and he is too busy with sticks to cover them

Be careful Dad! He clobbered both eaglets a couple of times.

Two days later and our chicks don't look a lot different. I do wish that they would feed them a little more.

When the adult got up both eaglets were not only under the adult but up against a stick and under grass--big was also under little LOL!

I am so disappointed! We have lost another cam for the season. This note was on the home page for the ND-LEEF eagle cam today. :( We won't be able to see Little and Big grow up! :brknhrt:


Unfortunately, the in-nest eagle cam at ND-LEEF is experiencing technical difficulties and will be unavailable for the rest of the 2021 eaglet season. Viewers are welcome to continuing watching via the wide angle eagle cam. We hope to address the issue during the off season in Fall 2021. Please stay tuned!

This is our only view for the rest of the season ---for all intents and purposes the season is over. :( I will check back when the eaglets are older to see if they can be seen at all. :(
