Update on the difficult situation at the Maine nest

Maine

Warning – graphic information.   This morning it was clear that the smaller eaglet had died.  The larger eaglet spent much of the day vocalizing.  This afternoon the parents returned with small fish to feed the remaining eaglet, and one parent began to feed the eaglet the remains of the sibling that perished.  The eaglet continues to vocalize and at one point nipped at the parent who had stopped feeding it.  It seemed to be wanting more food.  The parent has left and the eaglet is making attempts at self feeding from the remains of its sibling.   It is good to see that parents have made a visit to the nest.  Link to nest: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/brieaglcam
