Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Thanks, everyone, for the various updates about the 3 eaglets from Decorah. They are all in great hands at SOAR. Considering the condition they all were in (anemia, underweight, bites from the gnats, dehydrated), it may be fortuitous that they all left the nest early. Hopefully, now they will all be...

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

What a week in Decorah, at both nests. I think all three eaglets have been so bothered by the gnats that they have not acted in the normal manner of branching for awhile, getting their balance and coordination down, increasing how high they go in the tree, etc. The last few days have been unbelievab...

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Jwin, thanks for the article about that awesome photo. I've seen the photo lots of places on Facebook. It will be strange not to have the cams at SWFEC. It's been great to continue seeing H and M. Sunnybird, I'm glad to have MRF Cam back; it is such fun! Philjo, that is a precious photo of Simba & C...

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

What a treat to see both Mom and Dad at Fort St. Vrain eagles nest recently, perching together on their favorite pole. When the two eaglets stood up, we could see them on the nest!

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

So happy that the Smola babes are okay this morning. I was afraid to get up this morning and look. That was kind of odd for Baroness to be away from the nest for that long, wasn't it?

So glad that all looks good this morning.

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Devastating news from Big Bear. So many snowstorms for them to deal with this year. Some say that Cookie never really recovered from the last snowstorm when he was exposed somewhat. Jackie has done a tremendous job in trying to cover them, but it's tough with 6 week old eaglets. Sounds like it was d...

Re: EAGLE Chatters Nest

Wonderful news to hear that DH7 is back home. Glad she was able to fly back to the nest. Keeping my fingers crossed that those owls might start to behave themselves.

Re: SW Florida Eagle Cam 2018~2019

Well, it looks like E12 may be off on her journey for real this time. It was so precious to have that extra time with her. I believe it was 144 days for her on Thursday when she was last seen; the Pond Princess record will last for a long time, I think. E12 was a real joy, as was E13 this season. It...

Eagleslanding - so sorry to hear about the Davenport nest. I sure hope the water recedes there soon, for the eaglets, wildlife, the people and the town. Such a bad situation.

Sorry to hear about the bad flooding in Iowa. I imagine food would be much more scarce with so much underwater. The weather in Smola has been horrendous, but it doesn't seem to phase Baron and Baroness. They just keep on carrying on, and the babies seem to be fine. They are such admirable parents. W...

I wasn't ready to say goodbye. These two were such buddies, that I really thought that they might disperse together. Thanks everyo...

Yes, I must admit that E13 was my favorite, too; he was a character and a loud-mouth at times, reminding me of our beloved Niner. I think they both are such extremely good looking eagles.

Welcome BB3 and BB4; I guess the local 3rd grade kids will get the chance to give them names, which I think is a great way to do it. Help to establish love for wildlife in the little kids.

Sorry to hear about the original Pappa. Hopefully the new Pappa will be well and stick around that area.

Desiree's photos of the 2 kids at sunset is just stunning. Thanks for sharing, Pascale, and thank you, Desiree.
