All three birds doing well

Edward, Emily and Beaky are all doing well and utilising the food provision sites. Beaky and Edward seem to have found each other again and have been together for the last week or so (see bottom picture). In the top picture, Emily is 'mantling' over her food, a behaviour common to raptors in which they 'shield' their prey with their wings. The photo also nicely shows the amount of white present on a young eagles tail feathers.

More pictures coming soon.........
