Christmas Hatch arrives at the Southwest Florida cam!! and a little concern for food

The second eaglet at the Southwest Florida eaglecam has hatched, and with a little help from big brother/sis!  Below is a wonderful link to a video by Urdognu showing a very active “E3” as the first eaglet is being called, “helping” the second eaglet “E4”  hatch.   There is a little concern because E3 has not been fed yet, but conditions are rainy and windy and so fishing/hunting are probably a bit touch today.  E3 is active and doing well, and E4 will not need food immediately.  There was also some concern because the parents were off the nest during hatch.  Mom eagle Harriet is there now.  Certainly different from what we normally see, but it is warm there (70 deg) and these are very experienced parents.  So hoping its just us humans adding the drama, but have to admit that  it’s hard to not be a little concerned.  link to cam: http://www.dickpritchettrealestate.com/eagle-feed.html   Link to Urdognu’s video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6WNF1BM0-0&feature=youtu.be
