Ranger Cove Bald Eagle Nest
Ranger Dad brought a squirrel to the nest this morning.
The squirrel was so heavy that Ranger Dad had to slide in sideways to the nest and slam on his brakes.
The unfledged chick was still in the nest and it promptly pounced on the squirrel.
This made the eaglet fledgling, who was up top on the right hand trunk, pretty darn mad.
So mad that he flew/fell/crash landed down into the nest.
Then it was a free-for all for possession of the squirrel.
Ranger dad stayed out of the fight until he decided that he should be the one to parcel out the food.
Ranger Nest: has Egg(s). Hooray!
I found both eagle parents sharing incubation duties this morning.
