4-15-19 Big Bear Eagles-Mom Brings In Food For The Eaglets
- Published on: Monday, April 15, 2019
- Mom had to make a choice, stay with her eaglets and take the chance Shadow would return again without food for the eaglets or let Shadow take over brooding while she goes to look for food.
You can see the anguish as she rises, looking at the eaglets, looking at the nest with no food for them to eat. Shadow flies in with no food, Jackie is reluctant to leave but she has mouths to feed.
After studying the nest, Shadow takes over brooding. Mom retruns with prey and a short stand off takes place. She wants to feed the eaglets, Shadow doesn't want to get up. Mom wins out and finally gets to feed!
Shadow is young and inexperienced in this phase of raising eaglets. Life doesn't come with an instruction manual and some things have to be learned by watching. I have faith he will catch on and be a great provider given time.
