I wanted to write today about Mike`s progress and now you are asking this...

Mike is much smaller and lighter and is very fast in his movements, perhaps because he was training much in early age when he was sneaking to get food.
He was first to sleep adult style, lying with head under wing, he did it already last weekend for about 30 min and later on other short occasions.
He is making good jumps.
My only worries now are that he is not getting enough food :slap:
After what we learned last week when 3 very big and well fed eaglets fell down in US nests and had medical tests, I understood that it's not only what we see. They still need more food and time to build flight feathers.
Mike looks very small. For few days they looked very similar, but since yesterday it's not so. I hope he'll continue his progress very soon he will be able to hold his neck up when Sis is attacking :mrgreen:

I hope to have more time to watch them, after the guests we have will fly home. I love to recieve them but not when eaglets need my attention :rotf:

Abigyl, i don't remember what i was asking about the eaglets then...
all i know is that both are developing in a perfect way. :2thumbsup:
at this phase when they are about 9 weeks old the age difference of one - 1.5 days has lost its importance. i think that Mika is managing perfectly compared to the big sister. :laugh:
she is smaller than Rika but she is at least as clever and capable as Rika is. :rolleyes:

oh! :slap:
- but we cannot know that for sure. it may be just a coincidence.

the buzzard's visit.


the eaglets were looking to the right long even after this. especially Rika looked a bit shocked. she stood quite frozen. Mika called alarm a few times more.
9:13 Mika went to the fake branch.
9:22 she called.
9:25 Rika relaxed.

(i hope i have the names right.)
