Lady Hawk - Harriet starts to feed E15 some fish as E16 patiently waits for a turn to eat. E15's crop is full - what a huge difference a couple of days makes in the size of the eaglet! E16 will get a couple bites but the first thirteen minutes of the feeding is mostly Harriet feeding E15. E15 gives a couple quick bonks & 16 submits. At 13:02 E16 starts to get fed by Mom as E15 falls into a food coma. E16 has a messy face but is loving the feeding ? When Harriet is finished, you can see the nice size crop on E16 - and remember E16 is only one day old and is small!! Nice job Mom! Normally the oldest eaglet will eat first and then the youngest will get fed when the oldest is full and drifts off to sleep. This is a good example of the pecking order that will be established on the nest. Thank you for watching!
