Lots of continued activity here .... Dads doing their best to raise the chicks without Hope.  Continuously being harrassed by other eagles.

A couple updates ... both chicks have now fledged.  The older went first and it didn't take long for the younger one to follow.  (I personally think they are both males).
They are now 85 and 82 days old.

They had a very good meal the other day ... young pelican chicks - five total I believe. Sad  It wasn't pretty and I didn't watch ... I feel so bad for all the nests getting flooded.


Update 5/30/2017 Late this afternoon, the eaglets have now become fledglings. (fledgling means they took their first flight).

Update  5/30/2017 The Mississippi River is flooding and is affecting many of our colony nesting islands. Young chicks such as pelicans and cormorants are unable to move to higher ground and will perish in the flood waters. Eagles have found another source of free food.
