With the hatching of the egg, the adults have shifted into high gear as far as collecting food goes. The nest is now full of fish, much more fish than the chick can eat.

The eaglet will grow very quickly in the coming weeks and it will be possible to watch it all thanks to the camera installed by the Sutton Avian Research Center.
This year the nest features a camera that has low light capability so viewing the nest at night is now possible.
