Yesterday I watched the live feed of the Hornby Eagles on WILDEARTH.TV. I was lucky to see the baby fed after one parent returned to the nest and the other flew off. Today the chick is already obviously larger and more active. The other egg will probably not hatch.

from Gerard Manley Hopkins poem that I'd learned and illustrated years ago -
Praise God for dappled things . . .
All things counter, original, spare, strange;
. . . adazzle dim. . .
and from Emily Dickenson
Tell all the Truth but tell it slant—
Success in Circuit lies . . .
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind—
