Korky said:Harriet brought a toy squirrel back to the nest for her two chicks
The squirrel lives on! The two chicks are now about 6 weeks old

Lovely video of the Royal Northern Albatross family all together in Dunedin, NZ. No sign of the male having any problems with his leg now.
In Florida, bald eagle Harriet and M15's second clutch of the season chicks E15 and E16 continue to grow. They are 7 weeks old. And the squirrel lives on!

I do check the SWFL nest every day Korky, as I have a friend who follows Bald Eagles. It is such a success that Harriet's second clutch have come on so well.
Sometimes my heart is in my mouth though when both of them sit right on the edge of the nest peering over the side .
I wonder if the squirrel will last the whole season.

Indeed! It's stayed remarkably clean considering what a charnel house the nest is
Screenshot I took yesterday and forgot to post. E15 sitting up boldly viewing his domain.

Poor E15 Korky, will be wondering why it doesn't taste like the bites Harriet gives him
