9:41am......... :wave: Good morning Delta2 friends! Thank you JudyB, Cheryl, Roy and SandyW for all those posts! This rollback feature on our cams is very handy indeed as we can't have someone on the cams all the time! Our eaglets are taking more responsibility for their food now.........we are seeing them grab at pieces, nibble on something by themselves and even showing some pecking towards their parents who have brought in the food! And because they are now 5 weeks old they are getting big enough that our parents will be starting to find it a bit cramped in the nest with them.

Today's weather............not too bad at all.

10:36 am in rollback, Pa finds bits and pieces of leftover food and feeds to the eaglets. He then leaves the nest. He must have gone up to a branch as the eaglets where watching him.
