Great pictures, Bev - thank you!

I just sent an email to David Hancock to let him know that we haven't seen either adult today. He knows a lot more than I do about eagles - and he lives a couple of blocks away, so may be able to check on what's happening under the nest. I tried calling but couldn't reach him - he is a busy fellow.

I will note that the chicks might not be happy, but they will be OK for quite a while - and with these long days in BC, I'm hoping we'll see one or both of the adults before the sun goes down.

It has occurred to me that Mom/Res may have hurt her leg in a fight with a female hoping to take over this very nice nest - in which case it's possible that both adults are spending their time defending the nest from an intruder pair. It is a really nice nest - but eagles in general and intruders in particular aren't into risking their lives unnecessarily. Sur is a young and strong eagle, and I'm pretty sure anyone thinking to challenge him will think again quickly - so if that's what's going on, I'm guessing the pair will be moving on to easier challenges soon.


Update - while I was typing that, I got a call back from David Hancock, and he'll be going to the site later today to see what's going on.

It's now 5:42 pm in BC, and I still haven't seen an adult - but the South cam is back - thank you, Ken!

And hopefully Sur will be stopping by soon with food for Dee and Ess. It's almost 9 in Maine, but I'll bring my phone and watch for a while.

Goodnight, everyone.... :offtobed:

18: 10 and still no parent.. I hope David lets us know if all is well. Does anyone help out if the parents don't show? Surely they won't let the chicks die?

Hi all,

I spoke with David and he is aware of the situation and is trying to find a solution. The outcome will depend on what the powers that be will allow him to do.

In the meantime, let's all hope and pray one of the adults returns!

12:14 pm Went back to 9:00 pm on the DVR and there were no parental visits. Maybe in the early morning? :luck: Kids are sleeping peacefully.

Good morning, everyone! Thanks for the weather, Bev - comfortable now, but does look like another very warm day.

Looking back....

Around 4:22 am both chicks were up and I heard an adult trilling. Unfortunately no one came to the nest.

I'm rebooting the North cam - hopefully that will help with the pixelating.

I think this is Dee doing some nice flap-hopping.

Dee is also doing some calling for food.


Time for my breakfast - I'll be back in a while.

This turn of events is so heartbreaking. If the parents don't return, I hope something can be done to save Dee and Ess.

7:19-7:20 a.m.: Hooray! Thank you for spotting this, Darlene! I don't know which parent it is, but I'm thinking it's Sur (I'm not seeing a limp). I don't know what the piece of food was (it didn't look like a whole animal), and I don't know which eaglet got it.

Thanks Sue. What a relief. I was too busy looking at the parent to see who got what but both babies look like they have a bit of a crop now between the 3 feedings.

7:51-7:52 a.m.: Food drop #2. This prey, whatever it is, looked a bit larger. One of the eaglets is trying to self-feed on it.
