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.

I am blessed with so many friends among all of you.
One of my friends, who is one of the nest monitors,
went out today to check my nests while I recover from knee repair.
He sent me this video from First Nest and said he hoped it would help with my healing.
Oh, it did! Watch as one of the chicks surveys the world and the other practices wing wapping.
I added 2 freeze frames so you can see expressions better.
And yes, that is poop shooting over the nest edge at the end of the video.
All eaglets instinctively do this to help keep the nest clean.
