In this hot weather we are experienceing can the chick get dehydrated? What is the chicks' source of moisture? I have lots of bird feeders, and birdbaths, and know the birds come for a drink and a bath.

Cockney,

It has been reported elsewhere that the eaglet's only source of water is from the food that the parent birds bring to it, which is mainly fresh fish from the ocean.
