Nest notes 5/26/16

5/26/16 – Well, right on cue, the Harmar eaglets have begun self-feeding! The Harmar female began the lessons in feeding by bringing a live fish to the nest to show the eaglets how to ‘open’ prey. They had been making some attempts at picking at food, but now they have really begun to feed themselves! The adults will continue to supplement their feeding and here they both arrive on the nest together to contribute to the feeding. Don’t worry though, the female eagle is not done caring for her eaglets yet, here she pulls out the mombrella to protect them from the rain.

Harmar eaglet is now this big! 5/25/16
