Re: A Rare Bald Eagle Trio—Two Dads and a Mom

Thanks so much, @Mz iMac, for all the updates.

 

If unable to flap I wonder how she/he will make it up to the nest. That could be a long time of hanging out on a little branch. Glad to know she is being fed. I hope she is received well if she makes it back.

Thanks @Mz iMac for the updates!

 

I just checked in and found this latest update posted:

 

 

"Update 6/10/2019   Huge thank you to USFWS for this morning update on E3.  Starr alerted her eaglet to sit quietly until the humans left.  The eaglet is not higher in the trees but has moved significantly from its original location as was expected.  The crop was full, thus was being fed.  It is a strong, instinctive young raptor."

@Mz iMac ...So, to me, this sounds like E3 is farther away from the nest area and also has gone lower...from the branch down to a log?...Is that a correct interpretation?

@Mz iMac ...I was hoping it would be a Nope!..lol

 

This is concerning then as it makes E3 more vulnerable to predators...It does appear that she has begun fledging since she was able to make it up to the branch and then back down again...She is just now headed in the wrong direction....Aren't the adults able to help guide their babies during these early stages of fledging?...I do feel confident that the wonderful staff is keeping a close eye on her though.

"Update 6/17/ 2019 Nest is now empty with both eaglets fledging this morning at 5:42 and 7:38. They may or maynot return to the nest. Cam will be up for a couple of weeks and then turned off for the season."

Re: A Rare Bald Eagle Trio—Two Dads and a Mom

I was hoping to be on when they flew off but I’ve missed it. I thought they flew off and came back multiple times before they left for good. I guess I’ve missed that too.  It’s a little sad that the nest part is probably over.  I wonder how E3 is doing. Can’t imagine clinging to just a branch for weeks. 

 

Thank you, @Mz iMac .  I have always looked forward to any updates.

I'm really surprised that they didn't include an update on E3 also....We all would like to know how he/she is doing before they close the cam down!

 

 

@Mz iMac ...Love your expressive emoticons!

@wildflowers 

E3 visits the "nest" from time to time.  Especially at night & feeding time.  E3 seems to be resting/sleeping in the nest.  Not sure how it flown there from below.  I did watch E3 once "climbing" the lower "fledging" branch.  Most times it wing flap hops up the branches. When in the nest, E3 does the wing flapping from branch to branch.   Not sure if its flying yet or fledging on a higher branch that the camera cannot view.  Here's its wing tip on a higher branch....
