JL Bald Eagle Nest report: Ranger Nest 05-31-2018

Ranger Nest:

The two chicks are wet and hungry. Mom brings in a fish. Being eagles, the two chicks each try to get to mom first to grab the fish from her talons. A free-for-all ensues. The biggest chick wins the fish. Mom goes out on the big branch to continue drying out from all the rain. The smaller chick begs from its bigger sibling for some fish but doesn’t get any. The little one then tries to beg from Mom but she doesn’t have a fish to give. This is typical bald eagle behavior. The high thin weap-weap-weap calling is the sound of a hungry bald eagle chick.
