Dad was out again for a minute, but returned - then perhaps much to his relief, Belle returned at 5:25.  He left soon after she arrived.

She pulled grass up all around to make a wind break

The male brought 2 new fish to the nest this morning, and Belle fed the eaglet at 9:14 AM.

Wow, that second egg is hatching close in time to the first one.

5:17 the male arrived with another big fish!  Belle fed the bobble head and #2 continues to work his way out.

March 28

Both eaglets appear to be fine - one has a large crop and one is in a food coma.  There sure is a lot of food on the nest!

The male seems a bit more comfortable with the kids now.
