Legacy is a joy to watch, a strong eaglet, precocious in everything, and spoilt for sure :D
Gabrielle and Samson are just wonderful parents - similar an many ways to Harriet and M15

i think Samson and Gabrielle can be quite proud of their little big eaglet :nod:
in any case, the time has come when both need to watch out for their feet
drop the fish and quickly get your feet to safety :mrgreen:

Pic from now: I can't believe how big Legacy already is.

Earlier today: Samson looks like he is thinking: "Do you eat it alone or should I help you?"

:hi: Owlie, Birdfriend

after two nights of really bad weather - Gabrielle and Legacy were soaked wet, but super Mom Gabrielle has been on nest with Legacy and sheltered her devotedly, bent forwards and holding the wings over her as best as possible - today the sun is shining from a clear blue sky.


The crusty sore on the nose has fallen off, on the bottom lip it is still there, but smaller and keeps drying off, also on the left toe of the left foot it seems to be smaller today.

Yes, Owlie, Legacy is already a beauty - and sooo strong.
I bet she will become as huge as her Mom, Gabrielle.
