I arrived at the nest just before 8PM and quite a crowd was on the street... I do feel rather sorry for the residents, who I'm sure are beginning to wonder if they will ever get their neighbourhood back. Mind you most of the residents I speak with are as involved with this story as the rest of us are. Thank you to all those dear people who do live near this nest.. You have been most gracious!
Back to LittleEagle ...who spent an hour or so in the tree beside the nest , soaking up the evening sun! I saw several food deliveries this evening , took quite a few really bad photos, and a few that look to be not too bad! Plus 7 minutes of 4K video, around 9:30 and it was so dark that I could barely see... Both adult eagles showed up just around 9:25 and there was much rejoicing and squeaking from LittleEagle... The video shows the adult Eagle bringing food over to the little guy and a lot of fast paced chomping.
So everyone will go to sleep tonight with a full tummy.. A nice feeling indeed!
*** A new video page just added*** Last nites's video now on my YouTube video channel :)
Look closely at these 3 images.. Adult drops a Herring from left talon.. It is visible falling past the Eaglet, then reached the nest in the 3rd photo. This sequence was shot in RAW @ 14 frames/second!
