Still trying to spot those Eaglets!
 
may 15 2020 13:13 - Em moves a stick



LOTS of dried blood on Em*s beak here.



A few days later, & i believe from the eyes that this is Mr. Em on duty on the hot Nest.

Success!
Okay, yesterday i got lucky.
i went out to check on a Farm stand & on my way home, stopped, as usual, to peek at the Nest to look for Eaglets.
i was pretty sure i was seeing something up there!
So, off the bike, kick the stand, off with the helmet & goggles, unpack the camera from its towel wrap in the saddle bag.
Take a peek.
& YES!
i*m posting these full size.
Click on the foto & click again to see bigger.
A cute little fuzzy head!
 
may 25 2019 10:06 - Eaglet on the Nest



& look here!
Resting their cute little fuzzy head & gigantasaurus beak on Em*s tail!  :hearts2



Heavy head & beak slipping off tail now.



This is Em.
Blinking.



Top of a cute little fuzzy head here.



Wooohoooo!
 




More to come.
Gotta go.

Okay, picking up where i left off yesterday.
In this next foto you can see both Eaglets through the sticks.
 
may 25 2020 10:09 - Eaglets!



Suddenly Em is calling for some reason so Mr. Em flies in to join them.
He is calling as well.



The Eaglets are lying low.



Mr. Em is adoring them from on high.





Finally an Eaglet pops up again.

You can see the ear hole really clearly in this foto.
 
may 25 2020 10:18 - Eaglet!



You can see the Eaglet on the left through the sticks.



Must be nap time because that Eaglet is yawning now.



Eye of the right Eaglet peeping through the sticks.



Yay, one Eaglet steps up higher into view with that nice porthole behind them!
