Decorah Eagles

 I posted almost a month ago on the hatchlings from the live cam Ustream website featuring Decorah Eagles (American Bald Eagles) nesting at Decorah, Iowa, USA. This is one of the many projects undertaken by the Raptor Resource Project.

Let's take a look at how the grown up since almost a month ago. The chicks/ fledglings have dark color feathers on their heads (as opposed to white for the adults) and are 3 times the size since i last saw them !
May 11- Sound asleep in the morning 
May 11 - Good morning !
It's feeding time and breakfast are fishes from the nearby stream (i presume). The adults return with great joy but the chicks/ fledglings. The parents tore up the fish meat bit by bit and fed the young ones one at a time.
May 11- Both parents (one in front, the other background)
with the fishes at their feet
May 11- Tearing up the fish meat

Till the next post, take care.
