That is Mom Kate shredding a fish for Cacao the bald eagle chick.
I don’t know what Cacao is contemplating … or maybe she is just digesting the fish.
Cacao is begging for Petruchio to feed her.
So Dad Petruchio and Cacao both look to see if there are any scrapes left over.
After 5 weeks of not being able to properly see First Nest, I got to see how big the chick had grown.
I think there may be a second chick in the nest, but the wind was gusting so hard that I couldn’t decide.
Hopefully tomorrow I can get a better look.
The chick is now about 8 weeks old – another 4 weeks or so and it should be flying.
It has been so frustrating for all of us that the flooding has kept us waiting to see what the chicks are doing.
Here’s to sunshine and a lowered lake!!!
The chick is working on wing stretches.
A much bigger stretch!
Surveying the lake – hoping to see a parent with a fish.
Got to check the back door too!
Ranger Cove: Bald Eagle nest and Osprey nest
I was finally able to get to Ranger Cove!
Bald Eagle Nest
Ranger Mom was sitting on her eggs/chicks. The eggs may have hatched but I couldn’t be certain yet.
Ranger Dad did a fly-by, but was too quick for me to catch a photo of him.
The autumn and winter weather took down the osprey’s old nest. No problem.
The parent ospreys picked another tree and are hard at work on a new nest.
Here Dad Osprey supervises the delivery of a new nest stick by Mom Osprey.
I am not sure that I really want to know what Dad Osprey is saying about Mom Osprey’s apparent landing point!
