What’s So Funny?

Did You See? By Sherri Elliott

Mr. North and DN13's ginormous beak.

Mr. North and DN13’s ginormous beak.

As if Mr North’s look wasn’t comical enough, right behind is the photobomb of 5½ week old DN13’s ginormous beak.
The North Dynamic Duo are nearing the halfway point to fledge (gasp!), and while beaks and feet are nearly adult size, they are still just standing on prey and taking nibbles and haven’t fully learned how to use beaks to unzip their meal. The parents will need to mind their own beaks, toes and talons during the next few weeks when the eaglets will fiercely steal and claim food deliveries and mantle more to shield pirated prey from their sibling!
