They are so close! Sky is close to the trio's nest in Fulton.
I don't see how these kids can get anymore food in them!!

Mavis

Hello JC! Thanks for the last page link. Hope you are doing ok. Know you stay busy during Holy Week.

Mr. John...sure glad to hear from Star and Sky. Maybe they will check in with us one day....I hope so.

This is a picture...what is that? https://twitter.com/mavisj1/status/852655354982879236

JC

I will submit...Nova..Thor. ..and Soar...

Judith H

Mavis, That almost looks like another eaglet.

Mavis

Whew! The nest looks 'normal' now. I swear that looked like a 4th eaglet on the nest!

POTUS so cute...he kept picking up Crabbie's foot to eat on it....then he started moving straw around.

That limb..I guess it is the attic limb is dripping white with wet 'paint'.

Mavis

Oh, thank God, Judy. I thought I was losing it!! I have an eye appointment in June...thought I was going to have to try to set if up for sooner. I still don't know what that is...it is not connected on our 3 kids. Either it is gone on Val is laying on it.

I like those names, JC. I've thought of Thor several times.

Mavis

Whatever it is, I think they are eating it now.

Carol C

It must be the cam. Looks like an eaglet sleeping. Creepy!! No your not seeing things.

Judith H

Mavis, Did I see a beak in your picture?

Wendy

Potus got an individual feeding from dad. He's so full that he can't stand up.

Mavis

I sure thought I did, Judy. I counted heads several times thinking it was one of ours but it was not.

If POTUS eats any more...his crop will explode!!

Chris

The food that just arrived in the nest is either a Squirrel or a rabbit. I hope it is not the Easter Bunny.

Chris it looks like another squirrel. Boy! They are going crazy with the food. The kids are so full they can't eat any more.

Wendy

I think Justice is single-handedly putting squirrels on the endangered list.

Chris

I am relieved it is a squirrel I was concerned about the Easter Bunny.

Katy J

Dog gone it, having computer problems - ISP - can't see the nest. Hopefully it will resolve soon. Following comments for now.

Chris

So Sky is in Fulton where the Stewards nest is... I sure hope he is not involved in the attacks on killing Hope and fighting with both Valor 1 and Valor 2. I wonder how long he has been in the area. They said two Juvenile Eagles are the problem at the nest. They have another camera setup that has witnessed the attacks on the nest so they know who is attacking the nest.

Judith H

If they have a camera, they should be able to see if the juvies have backpacks and bands.

Chris

They report the arial fighting and the backpacks are sometimes hard to see even when they were on the nest. I did read that Hope was on camera with locked talons with another eagle. They searched the area for her for two days and found nothing.

Katy J

Ha, Val tried to pick up an old wing from previous meal, parent stepped in and grabbed it up.

Mavis

Just finished up in the kitchen. I hate this daylight savings time...I end up eating late...and going to bed late!!

8 days ago, according to the tracking charts, Mr. John posted: "...Sky has worked his way over to the Mississippi and heading north closer to home...he is down around New Boston, Illinois. Star took a trip to north central Missouri and has now headed back to the Mississippi just north of St. Louis...". I thought the trouble at that nest happened before then. I don't keep up with other nests, so I don't know.

Glad to see the ??? was a squirrel. The coat color was the same as the kid's. Looks like they are finishing up with it now. THose kid's crops are so full, they can hardly sit up...POTUS can't and is down for the count!

suzy

I submit Red, White and Blue

Judith H

Volant...Nova and Braveheart

Chris

Update 4/5/17

The aggressive siege on the nest continues with the invaders being more bold. Late Tuesday (4/4) afternoon, video caught a sub adult on the nest with one of the Valors in combat. Both Valors continue to protect and feed the eaglets.
