    I went and visited the nest today on my way home from work, and was I surprised!! Just about a week ago these were half the size and still had their eyes closed. There is another one in the nest, but he was being very shy today...but I did see his wing pop up a couple of times.

    Mom was out hunting. I saw her sitting in a tree a few hundred yards away, so I am really hoping to get a few shots of these guys being fed by momma.

    Hope you enjoy & thanks for looking.

    Wonderful! Love the 'eye contact' in the first shot. And you can see little tufts where the ears are going to be.

    More, more!
