Journi, thank you for the wonderful scaps! I have news, the eaglets have been given names! :woohoo: GG4 is Ch'áak' - This means Bald Eagle in the native language of Tlingit. Pronounced Chok (chuh-awk) And GG5 is Anáaski - This means Alaska in the native language of Tlingit. Pronounced uh-naw-ski. I am in love with these beautiful Native names! :)

:wave: Hi Shoupie! Thanks for posting the names that Glacier Gardens chose for GG4 & GG5!

So...

:eag: GG4 is now: Ch'áak'
:eag: GG5 is now: Anáaski

I, too, love their new native names! :rh:
(I have put a sticky note on my PC so I spell their new names correctly!
I won't be able to use those accent marks over the a's though...) ;)

Now...Hopefully they will have easy ID markings when they get a little bigger! :thumlft:

4:47pm - Mama gets up and Ch'aak' & Anaaski are getting some fresh air while Mama moves nesting materials around her.
I am not sure if there was a feeding during this time since Mama was in the way!

5:28pm - Ch'aak' & Anaaski are now on the other side of Mama as she continues to aerate around her.

Shoupie thanks so much for posting the names for the eaglets. I like them :thumlft:

Journi thanks for asking about posting the weather report; it is a good idea and I'm sure will be appreciated :thumlft: Also, thanks so much for posting your wonderful s'caps :rh: I don't seem to have much time lately to watch the cam :( The nice part about this nest being much later in the season is that I will have more time to watch after all of our local eagles have left the area :thumlft:

:eag: 6:00pm - While Mama is covering Ch'aak' & Anaaski she does a great job rousing her feathers!
(Rouse = When an eagle raises all their feathers and shakes!)

After Mama's great rousing, one of the eaglets peeks out from under her wondering what she was doing! :dunno:
(No, that wasn't an earthquake little one...it was just your mom rousing!) ;)

Mama is busy with aerating the nest area around her while Ch'aak' & Anaaski remain under her.

:eag: 2:38pm - After Papa stopped his vocal alerts, he goes over to one of the eaglets and picks up a piece of food off from it's body.
238p p picksfood e.PNG
Papa fed that piece of food to the eaglet, but it was a stringy piece of fish. (Looks like a piece of fish gut.)
Papa took a hold if that piece and helped the eaglet get it down.
238p p helps.PNG
The eaglet got the stringy piece of fish down okay...and Papa looked at his eaglet closely to make sure it was! :woohoo:
238p p helped.PNG
:arrow: Both eaglets got fed and it was a peaceful feeding. (Peaceful because each were getting full!) :yes:
