I stopped by the eagles nest in my neighborhood just after mid-February. The 2 babies were flapping their wings pretty hard. At this point the parents were just dropping off food and the babies were eating on their own. One of the parents had been sitting just above the nest and took off.
A few days later I came back and one of the parents was sitting near the nest and started yelling.
I then saw the other parent flying by but didin’t stop. I’m thinking this was the male. The female went after him, screaming along the way. Where was he going and where was breakfast (I’m assuming that’s what she was yelling)?
I saw them both land several towers down the field (that’s an osprey nest on the bottom left). They both sat up there for a while before taking off again.
The kids were like “Where are they going and where is our breakfast?” I waited about 45 minutes after that but still didn’t see the parents come back. One of them probably came back around lunchtime with a snack. At this point the babies still weren’t flying at all but flapping pretty hard.
More to come on the eagle family. I guess I should name them all at this point. Any suggestions?
