The neighbours of this Nest have been saying for years that they will show me a spot to see this Nest from & i FINALLY took them up on it two days ago.
What took me so long?
When we arrived, there was a feeding taking place!
What luck.
You could hear the screeping all the way to the spot.

You can see the small bits of food in the parent*s beak.

june 16 2016 15:07:44 - Dunlop Eaglet & adult









After a good feeding, a good flap!
You can see the primary & secondary wing feathers are still sheathed in keratin as they grow out.
& look at all the down fluffy feathers under the left wing.

Sweet little face.

A wing stretch.
You can see those sheathed feathers well here.



A view of the upper side of the wing.
The primaries look strange, kind of squeezed near their source, due to the sheathing.



This is a stretch.
Look at all the lovely fluffy down at the lower end of the back.

Parent perched up to the left now.
i love that tuft of straw-like stuff near the Eaglet.
Wonder where the parents found that?

june 16 2016 15:16 - Dunlop Eaglet & adult



The other adult was also feeding, & is still in the Nest, making sure the youngsters are safe.
There was a snarking wind coming in that day.



This Eaglet has little stipple marks, small dents?, on their beak.
Not sure if it is just food or the light?

Here are those marks on the beak again.



This one is pretty darn sweet.



june 16 2016 16:12 - Dunlop adult



Sleepy adult.
It was pretty warm that day.
& being a parent on duty all day is tiring work.

Aren't those called 'shafts' where the feathers haven't completely emerged?  Great detail and good teaching/learning picture, booni.   nod

Tiger, here is a good page about feather growth & you can see the difference between a feather shaft & a feather sheath.
