Memory Lane 2020: DM2 and the Floppy Fish

April 8, 2020: DM2 is sitting on the nest. Suddenly, a fish starts flopping. Better watch out, fish: DM2 knows karate! D34 and D35 were three days old and little D36 was hatching.

Despite his presumed lack of experience, he carved off and fed a tiny morsel of fish to his very hungry little eaglet: perfect for D32’s age and ability!
