The fourth family of eaglets to hatch at Clinton Lake since 1989 is doing well and starting to grow feathers, according to Teresa Rasmussen, park ranger.

"They're starting to look more like birds instead of fuzzballs," she said.

Two of the babies were spotted on March 21, and a third was discovered April 3. Rasmussen said the two adult bald eagles take turns feeding the eaglets.

"The best time to see them is when they're feeding because they bob their heads up," she said.

The eaglets should start walking around the nest in the next couple weeks and will practice flying by mid-May, she said.
