Okay, this is a video from the day i reported on above.
i had discovered one of the eaglets in the very top of a small, flexible tree.
Watch how beautiful this one is!  :hearts2

Booni, that is a lovely eaglet.  He/she looks very content to perch there and exercise its wings!  Thanks for sharing the video with us!  :ecsmile

Okay, in this video, you see the same eaglet in their flexible perch tree.
It is my belief that an adult wouldn*t land in such a flimsy tree, when there are sturdy perch branches nearby.
But the young ones seem to start off in the tops of trees like this, til they learn about the more sturdy branches such as their parents use.
Maybe these treetops are more easy to aim for?
Anyway, you can see how this Eaglet behaves when they see the parent land in the Nest.
You can hear the sibling in their waterside perch tree*s reaction as well.
This Eaglet landed on a branch of the Nest Tree, whereas their sibling beat them to the Nest, where the parent had landed with food.

Okay, in this video, the Eaglet has flown to the Nest Tree & is perched on a branch screeping & watching the adult who is on the Nest with the other sibling who is eating on the Nest.
The Nest is to the Eaglet*s left.
You can see at one point the adult leaves the Nest, the Eaglet watches them fly by, then eases off on the screeping for food.

Am I dreaming, or do I see a full crop on the eaglet in this last video? Looks like this might be part 2 of the meal!

This is actually an honest question: I'm not sure I'm accurate in this observation and would like feedback, because it's an important thing to observe accurately in the field. I'm learning a lot from these videos... Thank you Booni!  :heart

Hi there wren!
You are INDEED seeing a full crop on that Eaglet!
i don*t know what he*s doing, screeping for more food, when he already has a bulging crop.
There are lots of fotos to go with these videos, & i noticed right away the fullness of this one*s crop.
Fotos will be posted one day....
wooohoooo!

Thanks, booni.

I watch the eaglets here land (and sometimes crash-land) in some precarious places at first. I guess looking for a strong perch that is easily accessible is something they have to learn to judge for themselves.
Earth speaks through wilderness.
We still have a moment to listen.
