Morning in eagle nest

Morning in eagle nest

White-tailed eagle     Merikotkas      Haliaeëtus albicilla

The chicks of white-tailed eagle pair Anna and Uku were hatched on April 13, 16 and 19, at exactly the same intervals that the eggs were laid in the nest, that is on March 8, 11 and 14. All can calculate the lengths of the incubation periods for themselves.

The abundance of fish in the area allows male Uku to feed his family luxuriously. We have not seen anything like this in camera view in earlier years. The chicks grow quickly and more and more food is used by each day so that female Anna has to start fishing too. In less than a few more weeks the eagles will begin to manage eating on their own. There is plenty of interesting watching!
