Good morning Ferenz and Bee.

9:01 am There was just an awesome landing by E2. Parent landed on the upper branch. E2 flew by from left to right, circled and came in between the branches on the right. Landed on the nest.

Good morning Ferenz, Bee, and all MN-DNR eagle viewers. Time has come for me to say goodbye. I really didn't plan to document the nest this year. The beautiful pics that Ferenz posted drew me in. Then learning that the Dad was a new Dad this year just couldn't help but keep checking. We all know new Dad's do not always work out the first time. This Dad turned out to be truly amazing! He incubated the eggs. Brooded them after hatching. Don't think I'll ever forget the day I watched him watching Mom intently as she was feeding the new hatchlings. He had it from then on. In all honesty I think he did better at feeding than Mom did. Dad pretty much always made sure both were fed. Many times E2 missed out when Mom was feeding. Even though both E1 and E2 flubbed up the fledge they did well. At least I hope so with E1. Maybe, just maybe E1 will find it's way back to the nest. Time will tell. E2 is doing great. Flying around now and learning how to do eagle things. Even getting a bit spoiled by the parents and being fed now and then. It's been a good season at the nest. Even with some pretty bad storms, and high wind. Wish nothing but the best for them.

We've all had a heck of a year with the Covid-19 Pandemic. Now that restrictions are lifting it's time to get out and enjoy nature for ourselves. Take care everyone and be safe. :bye 1:

Hi Rita :bye 1:
Like you, I started following this nest because I saw this very young eagle about to become a dad for the first time and just couldn't pass the opportunity to watch something so rare :) . And you are right, he is just a fab Dad :D . I loved watching him eating on the nest, and many times I thought that last time when he was on a nest he was the one being fed by the parents :hug:
I am glad this nest worked out well, so now you can enjoy the summer and all your plans with a happy feeling . I really enjoyed your posts and pictures :thumlft: , and it was really great to follow this nest with you.
Have a great summer and enjoy everything you do :huggie:

2021 Cam Maintenance
Matching Drive

A little over 17 weeks ago, we met Tiku from our Surrey Reserve nest; this is just before he or maybe she made it all the way out of the shell:
Image

And now Tiku and Tucca from Surrey Reserve and Hope and Chase from Delta 2 have all set out to explore the world.

We do still have one young eagle to watch - this is Romeo from our White Rock nest, who hatched 6 weeks later than Tiku:
Image

At 11 weeks, he (or maybe she) is practicing perching on the nest supports and exercising those big wings. Eaglets generally fledge (take their first flight) between 10 and 14 weeks, and it's my guess that will happen in the next week or so.

And you know - I haven't really thought about this before - but our little window to access the nests and clean the cams and do any other necessary work isn't always that much longer than the 35-40 days it takes an egg to hatch. Last year the Surrey Reserve adults didn't leave until August 14 (though they weren't visiting very often after Thor left in mid-July) - and Dad Sur was back on September 26. Different pairs have different schedules - and it can vary from year to year - so it would be great if we could get ready now.

With that in mind....
Image

We will be posting more details about our Adopt-a-Nest program, the new option to adopt one of our eagles with a tracker (details soon), the Monthly Donor program - and the work we need to do on the 10 cameras we now have at five different nests.

The important thing to know is that at least the first $1000 in donations toward our cam maintenance fund drive will be matched by long-time supporters of Hancock Wildlife - so the time to donate is now!

Details about How to Donate

If you have questions, please contact judyb@hancockwildlife.org or gemini@hancockwildlife.org

Thank You!

Checked the Friends of Minnesota Nongame Eagle Cam Facebook page and the whole family was home yesterday. E1 and E2 are fishing; E1 caught a huge fish and proceeded to eat it until dropped it. Mom ( Nancy as they call her) and E2 watched it fall.

Thank you all for the great documentation and beautiful pictures here - and I'm so happy to learn that E1 came back to the nest and that they were in the area for a while.

I'm going to set up a new thread for 2021-2022 season - please continue to post here until things start up again. Thanks!

Thanks for the lovely closing post for the 2021 nesting season, Ferenz - and I apologize for forgetting that the 2022 thread for the these eagles was locked. :oops2:

The thread is now open, and I've moved the new posts to the 2022 thread. Please join us - viewtopic.php?f=44&t=593

I'll now lock this thread.
