Chick #2 appears to be taking the lead in learning to feed for itself. While all three chicks have been observed pecking at a fish, it is #2 that is actually biting off pieces. These photos were taken yesterday afternoon April 17. While the female adult holds onto the fish and feeds the other two chicks, giving a piece occasionally to #2, it is eaglet #2 that feeds itself. Learning to feed requires holding on to the prey item, biting , twisting and tearing. Takes a couple weeks to learn to put all the pieces of the process together and feed for oneself.
