Have you seen anything as bad as we saw with E7 and E8. E7 literally picked 8 up and shook him once. E8 learned to wait until 7 was in food coma at first, but there wasn’t much food that year and often the food was gone. Then 8 learned the sneaky snatch and steal when he got a bit older, not much older than these two.

yes, E8 perfected the snatch and steal, he was a determined lil one, after getting stuck in the nest, and E7s bullying, then getting knocked of the limb by an owl, he went ahead and fledged anyway doubleheart doubleheart !heart angel

Yep! Endured two bouts in rehab. Fishing wire and owl. Bet he is one strong eagle now and in a couple years a great dad. Wish he was banded.
