American Bald Eagle nest in East Tennessee

Today was a windy day in the lowlands but much more windy on the ridge at the nest site. The American Bald Eagle chicks are 4 weeks old now and seem to be getting along much better now that there is no longer a size difference. The eggs are laid 2 days apart and hatch in the same order. This gives the first born a large advantage for the first 2 weeks or so. After that the 2nd born catches up in size and squabbling decreases after that time. When the parents left the nest today the two chicks stayed nestled down out of the wind except for a stretch now and then.
