Yes, nanimal, the view from the rail will be their "go-to" spot now.

DN15 is standing, sitting on the rail sticks now.  DN16 seems to be more aggressive about claiming food, charging the delivery and mantling.

Great pics, STL!

Pretty warm day for the kiddos today.  Thank goodness they get a lil shade from DNF.  :D

The cam ops are into closeups today!  Great help in ID from eyes and labeling of feathers, etc.

Couple pics from DNN this afternoon.

Warm summery morning for the Norths.  DNF brought a live fish early, and both DNs charged over to claim it. Then they sat there wondering what to do about a live prey.  DN16 carried it across the nest and ate some.  MrN came for a while (no pic) and by 1:00, DNF was back hanging out with the DNs.  They are looking very well fed.

T40, thanks for the short videos! Smile-makers.

Two breakfish about 6:00 AM, one from MrN and one from DNF.  The DNs are getting better at mantling and eating on their own.

Rewind to noon to see both DNs standing on the rails, and some great closeups, thanks to the cam ops.

Watching the Norths sure beats housework, even if it has been a ho-hum day at the nest. 

At noon, MrN delivered or discovered a muskrat carcass, picked at it, fed a little to the DNs, then carried it away from the nest. Looked old to me. No pics.

About 4:30, DNF brought a medium sized fish, a sucker, and it was alive.  DN15 claimed it then wasn't sure how to subdue the flopping.  DNF came to the rescue, dispatched the fish (out of our view, thank you) and fed it to the DNs. 

DN16 is the most vocal -- wonder if that means anything we would like to know??

The DNs get fed less frequently now, and are left mostly on their own to consume fish.  DNF brought a large fish at about 11AM, which the DNs both claimed and squabbled about at first.  Rewind to watch them sharing the feast.  Thanks for the closeups, cam ops!

LORI, always the best GIFs from you!

Need some carcass ID from early this morning after a fish from DNF claimed by DN15.  MrN brought the tattered remains of some kind of grayish furry mammal with pointy ears and sharp canine teeth.  In the pic, the head is upside down.  Not much left that was edible, but it sure elicited a huge mantling response from the DNs.  Fox, coyote?  Do raccoons have that kind of teeth?
