Who Said Children Were Fun??
A baby can be an exciting time for a new parent, but it’s also a lot of work. The local area mated pair of bald eagles hatched their chick over a month ago and mom and dad have been very busy every minute since then.
But from the expression on dad’s face as he was flying around on a recent afternoon, he just might be a little worn out already. I thought he had kind of a sad sack or hang dog look on his face and I’m not sure if he was out hunting for baby food or just taking a head clearing flight as a short break from child care.
Bald eagle babies grow fast and seem to be just about always hungry so these parents have a lot more to do in the coming weeks!
