2. They don't eat their progeny,

other raptors prey on smaller creatures.

There are 2 'nestlings,' the third didn't make it and was likely sent to the creek.

4. Awwww

Baby birds look so funny when the feathers are coming in. But this one will be a big, handsome bird in no time at the rate things are going.
