All Tami can think about, since getting her rental lens, is taking pictures of the eagles.
She forgot to take me to water balloon slingshot practice today, but she remembered to take pictures of her precious eagles.
She forgot to fax in her toy order, but she remembered to get pictures of the eagles.
That silly lens is so big, a pair of purple martens hovered over it a bunch of times, trying to make a home in the end of it! Sheesh!
When 2 0′clock rolls around, you’ll know right where to find Tami. She says the sun shines best on the “royal family” in the afternoons.
As you can see, all the triplets are alive and well. No one’s been knocked out by a wing, or eaten by a sibling. Go ahead and laugh, but Tami goes down everyday, holding her breath until she can count . . . One, two, three, of them.
Tami and I watched a feeding for almost two hours on Friday afternoon . . .
. . . . one of my little camping buddies put it best when they said, “it was definitely a furry mammal” the adult was tearing apart.
Ug! How can they eat that? Water lilies are so much more nutritious.
We were so glad to see the adult fed all three eaglets. The biggest was first, but only because it could toddle itself over to the adult faster than the others. The youngest got fed second, though! I was happy about that, because we were worried it wouldn’t have enough to eat.
They’re all doing great! The eaglets move around the nest more easily, getting under foot all the time.
Today we didn’t see any feeding, and I thought it was kind of weird, as they always ate this time of day. While I waited for the second adult to come in, I told all the little campers (who wanted a look through the view finder) that the other adult was probably out hunting and I was hoping to catch him coming in with supper for the eaglets.
Buuuuut, there was nothing in his talons.
Does Mom look a little upset to you???
