NBG Eaglets, Thursday May 19

2:16 p.m.

The two most active eaglets of the early afternoon were NV and NX -- while eldest eaglet NZ has been relaxing. Everyone was off to a slow start eating this morning's breakfast -- the mixed entree of rats and fish didn't hold much interest for the eaglets until mid-afternoon. For the first time today, the rats were not slit open for the eaglets -- presenting a greater challenge for them to "dig in."

Bald Eagle #11-0165 continues to serve at the eaglets' "role model" in the other half of the enclosure.
