APR 16: Remarkable news-- TWO Eaglets reported today
Phil Martin texted to say:
"At 09:15 today I saw and photographed both eaglets. They were both alive, and moving throughout the nest and doing well. Mom was also in the nest. Phil"
My response was that either the second chick was paralyzed with fear and subsequently recovered, or could the deceased eaglet actually be the third of the brood? In support of this second theory, the eaglet that was lying motionless on the rim of the nest did appear to be younger than the second eaglet. Its wing feathers were not as developed and it was covered in white down.
Phil will send us his photo to be published here. I wish I could get out to the nest but am out of town.
