This feeding has been going on for over 18 minutes. Maybe the warmer weather helps. And my, what full crops they have!

An other fresh fish will added to the pantry. Dad is a good hunter. :2thumbsup:
Earlier there was a shift change, Jackie fed both well, at first only one, but then the younger got also his share.

Nice pictures and posts!
Thank you, Solo and Birdfriend!
:D
16:45 - Nest Time- it is above freezing at the nest.
37° F / 3° C , so it’s nice to see the Bear Chicks when Jackie Bear got off.
So much food in the pantry! The chicks were bonking each other a bit, and now at 17:03 mom is feeding her bears again. Fish!
This is likely their last meal before dark.
They really are adorable!
:shake:
Their bodys are now bigger than their heads!
:thumbs: :D

I closed my post too soon!
:D
Mom covered the chicks and at 17:12, Mr Bear arrived with Another Fish!
Jackie told him - enough already!! The nest is replete with birds and fish!
:slap:
The fish that Mr Bear brought in is a headless beauty too!
Big and dark green in color.

Solo and Birdfriend :hi:

Thank you for the updates and the really very nice pictures. I'm glad to see it :loveshower:
There is food enough, every day. But in the early morning all is frozen.
The little ones are growing well. If they are fledged, they will be the strongest chicks I saw. :bow:

BB Parents are doing a great job!

Cessie :hi: thank you for the infos about temp and nest update :laugh:

Hello everybody :hi:

09:15 I told you not getting out of that bowl, not yet !!
Now you can dance the jailhouse-rock :laugh:
Image

09:16 I'll feed you both through the prison bars :rotf:
Image

09:22 feeding both - this place for the nice difficult stick isn't really better
for bringing in the fish&prey, you'd better left it on the other side
Image

Indeed, when these two fledge, they are really tried and tested.
Squeamish, these two really are not. :laugh:

Both chicks are fed very well.

Edit: Mom brought the new "tree."

Hi, Birdfriend, yes, and I was laughing my ..... out :rotf:

But I also thought, these young first time parents are really really smart and caring for their first babies in precious way.
They noticed the older one, who was nearly walking outside of the bowl, and looked up for bringing in such a nice difficult twig. Good job :thumbs:
