Lisa, how are you telling the babies apart??  I put names on one pic, but am not sure.

Tussles, feedings, at noon, MrN brought DNF a fish head and put it right on her tail feathers!  It's a sucker, and a big one.

I used your 2nd pic, to show how I tell them apart. 

I have circled the eyes on each one.  15 has like a lil curve up on the black part around the eye.  16 still has some bulgy eyes.

Lisa, thanks for the eaglet ID tips!

On rewind, I thought there was eggshell next to DNF in the front. Zooming revealed it to be the fishhead, just upside down where it's white.  That head has been on the menu all day.

STL - I saw the fish head at the tail end of DNF earlier, and thought...is that an egg?  Then, I realized it was a head.  ;D

The duo at an earlier feeding this morning - DN16 on the left, and DN15(right) - both got good bites!

March is going out like a lion! Cold, windy, little snow.  We are all ready for spring weather.

Regular changeovers and small feedings until DNF brought a banquet of cowghetti at about 10:00.  That will feed them all day or more.  Really nutritious, but icky from our point of view!

Lisa, love your "parade banner" pic! 

On rewind at about noon, MrN perched above the nest, on duty on watch on alert.

There's a deli at the nest today, several fish plus the cowghetti.  Well-fed little ones.

Babies are looking more alert by the day.  And those crops are really full -- see on rewind at 11:40AM for closeups.
Few pics from earlier today.

Lovely pics, Lisa.  I really like what the Norths have done with the edge of the nest bowl.  Like they removed some of the rim facing us and built up the back, kind of like a recliner couch. Makes for great views.
