The Bayshore Road eaglets born January 1 and 3 are getting bigger by the moment. (I posted about them last month .) In human terms, it seems like they've reached the awkward age. They've been named Hope and Honor.
Whichever one this is looks as if s/he's posing for the video cam (or maybe singing into it):
The little guys keep mom and dad busy. They have adolescent appetites... even though they eat a lot, they always seem hungry. Looks like mom's ignoring the hunger cries here:
It's been interesting to watch the parents build the nest railings higher and higher as the babies grow and get more mobile. And a little scary.
Anybody can check in with the nest by video camera any time (and I look at least once a day). But when we're out and about and have time to stop, it's really fun to visit "in person".
Here's what it looks like on the ground under the nest. Pretty horses, dedicated birders (there are always a few) ... and a busy little cattle egret thrown in for a birding extra.
It has rained a little and been colder (for here) and windier here since I took these pictures, but all seems well at the nest.
