This chick born on April 6 is now 5 weeks old. Did not see the parents today. It is growing fast.

Great update on this gorgeous baby, Derek! I can't believe how fast they get so big either. Imagine the poor parents are fishing day and night at this point... Cheers, pear

Thank you so much. It certainly has grown in the three weeks I was away. I look forward to regular photo visits now. Best wishes to all, Derek

Hi Derek, I just watched the rescue of a baby eagle on the news. Is this the nest? The baby eagle was tangled in fishing line. I'm sure you would have seen the report, I loved it. They brought in a crane so people could to up and rescue the baby.

Hi Laurel; Someone today told me about the tangled eaglet. Happy to say, that this is not the nest. I think it was on Vancouver Island. Coincidently I was at this nest again today and hope one of the photos is suitable for posting :-)

Nice one Derek, and this was two weeks ago so he's probably big and fat now.
