WOOWEE. First photos of chick at H&G nest.
Chick is about 10 days old. Hoping to see a second chick.
Nor’easter glows in the afternoon sun.
[the bird flying past is a double crested cormorant.]
2) Nor’easter is between mom Godiva and the main trunk of their nest tree.
H&G Nest HATCH!!!
Godiva is feeding a new chick(s). She is on left side of the nest and her head is pointing to the right.
to show you the distances between a favorite perch for the parents and their nest; and the distances for my camera
I managed to get a few seconds of Godiva feeding the chick. Her head is to the left – watch for the tearing motion as she shreds the food.
Petruchio brought in a fish for supper.
Kate watches as Petruchio heads upwards with his fish.
He watched Kate feed the chick(s) – I still don’t know how many chicks.
The chick is still small so I added an arrow.
Godiva is still incubating. Her egg(s) should hatch in about 9 days.
Momma Godiva was sitting on the rim of the nest
when she dove off and headed straight toward me.
In mid air she swung over on a wing and headed for the water.
She took to the nest a small fish that was happily consumed by the chicks.
This is Godiva, the female bald eagle of the H&G nest.
