    After we dropped my grandniece off at preschool this morning we decided we should check on the eaglets. There are 2 nests that we've been keeping a close eye on since we got here. One of them is right across the street from a small pond/river-ish thing. This pair of eaglets has been flying lately - we've seen them perched in nearby trees the past couple of times we've been over there, and the other night we actually saw them fly back to their nest. it was pretty awesome to see.

    Anyway this morning the had flown to a bridge across the street.

    The parents are teaching them to find food for themselves, using a little tough love. They're hungry, and you can hear them call the adults, but the adult just keeps watch from a nearby tree, and once the eaglets are hungry enough they'll learn to fish and forage for themselves.

    They flew down to the shore, had a little skirmish, then flew back up to the bridge while we watched.

    They'll be leaving soon, but so will we. It's been awesome watching these 2 - they were just hatching when we were here in January.

    From that nest we went over to our favorite pair, but stopped to check in on the Sand Hill Crane we saw nesting the other day. Her egg hasn't hatched yet, but she takes meticulous care of her nest:

    Our favorite nest is just across the street - the eaglets there haven't flown yet as far as we know, but they like to perch on the edge of the nest to watch for the adults. The stupid crows were there annoying them again today. I'm guessing that the eaglets will have the last laugh on that one!

    This question is for @Andrew C and anyone who has done the Wild Africa Trek.

    We are looking at 9/11, as that is our DAK "day". Tours are at the following times:
    IMG_3567.jpg
    I have DHS scheduled for the second half of the day, with 50's Sci Fi booked for 7:00.

    Now for the questions part - what time would you recommend? I'd like to ride both Pandora attractions that day. I'll do FoP as FP+, and the boat ride as standby. Should we do these before the trek, or after? How filling is the "breakfast" or "lunch" provided? Do you eat more toward the beginning, the end, or right smack in the middle?

    Thank you for any input.

    I would do one of the morning ones. It's about 3 hours so it will give you enough time to do other stuff. The breakfast is less filling than the lunch. They gave DW breakfast on our lunch tour by mistake. Lol. But she said the was better than the lunch she tried from me. You eat at the end. At least we did on our lunch one.

    Also it will be a bit cooler in the morning and I think the animals are more active typically at that time of day, right?

    Whenever I speak Fahrenheit temps to Son #1, he looks at me like I have two heads.

    I am part of the switch-over generation. I was in grade 4 or 5 when Canada converted to Metric, by which time I was well versed in some aspects of Imperial measurement.

    Truth is, I am more comfortable expressing warm temps in Fahrenheit, and lower temps in Celsius.

    40F means nothing to me. 4C does. Go figure.

    At work, by law we must express lot dimensions in metres, but can display room sizes in feet. :rolleyes:

    Which would explain why Cananadians always seem so confused, eh!
