Female Suvi trusts leaving the nest only when male Sulev is near it

By today the eagle chick is a week old – it hatched as you may remember on April 24.

It is nice to watch the development. Sulev has cared for the food  store and in the last few days Suvi too has contributed. The chick is fed fish caught earlier – interesting whether that is drier for tearing off more suitable pieces.

Roaches as well as carps and certainly some more have been brought to the nest
