Bald eaglets

Today we will go look at the eaglets if they are okay.
Last week after the rain the nest look a little precarious.

There seem to be two eaglets

According to the research, incubation is 35 days ( 5 weeks)
and the eaglets being nestlings 56 till 98 days ( 8 to over 12 weeks)

We first saw the Eagle on  Jan 13 2017
We saw them together on Jan. 29 2017
We saw them standing on the nest  and  close to the nest in February and March. (March 26 they were not yet sitting on the nest)
We saw one Eagle sitting deep into the nest on April 15
and from then on.
 and June 3 we saw Eaglets!

Now assuming that they were sitting on eggs  before April 15
plus 35 days
is  before May 20

Assuming that they were hatched before May 20
that could bring us to them being fledglings before July 15 or as late as August 15, 2017

Still a ways to go

And last week the eaglets  were big but still grey and not standing up in the nest yet.
All is well! 
a very peacefull family
so according to what i am reading, and saw today, they could be 5 weeks old.
right on.
