An early morning Spring visit to watch Rocky River Eagles and Eaglets feeding and parental nest-building activities.
Last week I heard that a 3rd eaglet had hatched at the new rebuilt nest by the Rocky River in Cleveland, Ohio.
The nest is far from the viewing area and I knew from previous experience, best to see in the morning with the sun behind me and shining on the nest.
Early mornings are usually the best time to also see activity and I was not disappointed as both parents were there, with the male coming and going. Once he brought back a good size fish. Another time he brought additional nest material.
After awhile the young eaglets (almost three weeks old) began to wake up and peak out the nest. Mom served breakfast and during the next 40 minutes, nature showed God's wonder as I watched this new family be together.
Over the next 7 to 9 weeks these young eaglets will grow fast, start exercising their wings, loose their down feathers, and learn to fly!
