Week in Review
June 17, 2007

Kent, WA
April 30
May 1
Kent eaglets
46 and 47 days (almost 7 weeks)
Sherri's photo - June 16th

Eaglets are spending more time standing on their toes
like adults, instead on their feet, like chicks

Another picture on the Kent page shows the mother
eating in front of the eaglets - perhaps to encourage
this well-fed pair to start learning to grab food
the way they'll need to do as juvies.

Puget Sound, WA
April 26

Puget Sound eaglet
50 days old (just over 7 weeks)

eaglet eating on its own -
parent fed a few bites, then left;
the little one figured out what to do next!

Sidney, BC
April 20

Sidney eaglet
58 days (8 weeks)
Eagle Lover from NYC - Starr's photo - June 15

this fish arrived still flapping a bit; after watching for a while to see if
someone would do something about that, Skye took matters into his
own hands (err - beak) and took it to his feeding spot and
began to feed himself.

It's been observed that the parents often bring food to the nest
but don't feed Skye, encouraging him to grab it from them and
feed himself.

Santa Cruz, CA
April 13

Santa Cruz eaglet
62 days (almost 9 weeks)
EagleDuo's photo - June 14

A-63 is spending a lot of time branching - and when one of the
parents tried to sit on "his" branch A-63 chased him off!

And check out this sequence by EagleLoverFL on the IWS forum -
A-63 Grabs Dinner A-63 may be an only child
but his parents seem to be teaching him well!
