Diction-aerie word of the day - Cuddle Puddle: When eaglets cuddle closely together for safety or warmth.
Both Decorah North eaglets have grown in nice 'coats' of dense thermal down, but cold wet weather is still a challenge. DN16 was clearly feeling the cold on April 13: look closely and you'll see a few shivers as it huddles with sibling DN15. DN15 appeared to pull up the blankets towards the end of the video, grabbing two small beakfuls of grass and depositing them on DN16's back and head. It might be anthropomorphic, but it looked to me like DN15 was taking care of DN16 in Mom and Dad's absence. Does DN15 remember Mom covering both eaglets up on April 12? https://youtu.be/8a09pZwOgb0. #musing
