I am so fond of these little eaglets, and just impressed with the grace and power of their parents. It is amazing to see how this show of nature is playing out on the eagle cam that can be found on the right hand side of this blog.
First up, a duck is brought for lunch to the nest. Specifically, a male surf scoter duck. This species is sometimes called a “skunk-head” due to the white patches on their head. This sea duck is typically found in marine waters, or on large brackish rivers.
I might mention that at the start of this next video there is also a fish that has been brought to the nest, and you can see it is still breathing as the eagle places one of its feet upon it to get at the duck.
I want to add just a couple of pictures that show the cute little guys, and one of both their parents on the nest.
