The eaglet on the left was choking trying to get it out if it's mouth!

The cam is working again. I can only hoped that one of these eaglets has not swallowed whatever that was. It was definitely a line of some sort---flexible---not grass!

Going by their sizes, I wonder if we have 2 females ans a male?? :puzz:

This morning we have three very wet eaglets and a soggy nest after the area received 2 1/2 inches of rain last night. These eaglets are 72 to 74 days old.

I tuned in to see this sight---only two eaglets on the nest. I thought maybe one had branched but NOOOOO--it was more than that! :D
OH  where's the other one   6-20-18.jpg

.
WOW!! At about 3:01PM today June 20th one of the larger two eaglets fledged It was deliberate and without branching first. The eaglet has been seen flying and then was on the ground. The principal at the school and a few other people are aware and have been watching the eaglet. They are all giving the Eaglet it's space as to not stress it out. Won’t be long before the others will go too.

A post this morning on FB from one of the ground crew ---


Cindy Duffala‎ to Avon Lake Bald Eagles Nest

Good morning everyone!
I just wanted to give an update on our fledgling, Red…..
John & Barb were up at the nest early, around 7:30 yesterday morning. With not a lot going on. We got there after 9am, and saw a couple fish brought in, but other than that, not much happening. Mom & Dad were both in their second favorite tree, along the back tree line, most of the day. At least one was in that tree the whole day.
We were waiting and watching for Red to make a return.
Many of us spent the whole day there, and we were beginning to think that she wasn't going to make an appearance! Then, about 7:20, she showed up. Trying to make it back to the nest, we assume, but didn't quite make it. As she flew in, she went along the back tree line, not too far from Mom. As soon as she got to the tree line, Mom flew over near to where she landed. Unfortunately, as many may know, fledglings can fly fairly well, but don't know how to navigate, and definitely don't know how to land on a branch…. yet. Practice……
So, she ended up landing on a branch, but lost her balance and was hanging upside down…. typical…… She finally got herself to the ground after trying to get on a couple branches.
We got a brief glimpse at her before she hopped her way back into the woods. Annette, our friend from the Medina Raptor Center was there and felt she was ok, and at some point, one of the adults had fed her. She was not crying like a fledgling that hadn't been fed. Annette had many years of experience in rescue and rehab of Raptors…..
We will see what today brings…. I'll keep you posted!--

Strange landing Red ~ OOPS!! :w00t:

Hi Mary! What a beautiful photo you posted of the first fledgling! So they named it Red? Just peeked in at the cam and all 3 of them are on the nest. They are drenched.

Hi Mary. Took a peek in a the nest this morning. I only see one eaglet out on a side branch. Maybe the other two are in branches out of view. Or perhaps they have fledged.

Hi Rita! Those who go to the nest and post on the FB page say that the small male branched today. :clap: I'm going to check again to see if they know any more.

ETA -- I was correct--the small male eaglet branched today AND the other larger, most likely female eaglet, fledged today! :thumlft:

Since the nest is empty right now with the eaglets out learning their flying skills I think it's a great time to post some beautiful photos taken by the folks who go to the nest mostly on weekends. I'll start with some surrounding the fledges of the trio and then I will just post some from June. :wub: get ready for some outstanding photos and THANKS to the photographers who gave em permission to post them!! :thumlft:

I did not see any photos of White's fledge and the ones of Red were not taken by photgraphers who gave me permission but we have Blue's first flight! :woohoo: These three are property of and courtesy of Richard Kopchock


There he goes! Blue is the smallest and most likely male eaglet
