It is a cool, but bright sunny day today. The images from the camera really do look the best on this kind of a day. The Mississippi River continues to recede. There is still some water in low spots below the nest, but no water flowing.
We have seen the baby eating a few times already today. It is also worth noting that the feathers on the eaglets body now are starting to fill-in and look like real feathers.
If you have not yet voted, don't forget to vote in the name the eaglet poll on this page. We have had over 3,500 votes cast so far. The poll will stay open until May 12th.
