You might be interested in watching the Washington DC eales and their growing big eaglets. They have had 2 cameras on Mr. President and The First Lady for several years. They had 1 eaglet last year and 2 this year. I've been watching them since they were still in their eggs. They grow so much in a day. They ate directly off of a fish yesterday for the first time. They had been fed by the adults completely until there was a food fight yesterday and the baby stole the food out of the adults mouth. Then the smaller baby stole from the larger one. Then the adult stole it back. This went on for quite awhile. When I tuned in later yesterday the younger baby was sting and eating off of a fish like it was an ear of corn. I shouldn't call them babies anymore. They have most of their feathers and are starting to fly hop in the nest. It's amazing watching them grow. You can see them here: dceaglecam.org/
