Chicks are nearly one month old!
Well...it has been too long! Seeing these eagles care for their young has been tremendous. Have you noticed fish piling up on the edge of the nest at times?
I have received various queries about the eagles being left alone in the nest. Not to worry, this is normal especially given this spring's mild weather.
These chicks are now nearly about four weeks old. As you can see they are moving around the nest bowl more readily but still possess downy gray feathers--their contour feathers are yet to begin to grow in but should start to grow in the coming week or two. These birds still have a long way to grow! It will be six weeks from now (perhaps more) before they are likely to make their first flight!
Let's keep our fingers crossed for these birds and enjoy peeking in on their journey.
Thanks for all your interest and support.
Wish you the Best,
