From EagleCAM

Exciting news of SE26. I have received a call that SE26 was seen on a 22 floor balcony of units over past Homebush Bay. WIRES helper has caught it and is taking it for care and assessment. Safe and cared for, just unwise leaving the safety of home. Please do not call or hassle us with questions. Please do not make wild guesses or assumptions. I shall pass on information as I receive it.
SE26 is safe and being assessed.

I'm So sorry !

I have just received the following statement from National Parks and Wildlife Service:
"This breeding season has brought mixed news. SE25 successfully fledged and left the nest however SE26 was noted to have a malformed right leg during its development. This didn’t hinder SE26's growth or ongoing development, successfully fledging and leaving the nest, only returning at times to be fed by the parents.
On Saturday 14th November SE26 flew into a semi-enclosed balcony on the 22nd floor of a local unit block. Due to the enclosed nature of the balcony and furniture SE26 could not take off again. The resident contacted WIRES for assistance. WIRES volunteers removed the bird from the balcony and it has now been assessed by a local emergency and Taronga Zoo vets.
Examinations over the last few days found SE26 has a poorly healed fracture of the right leg. There are also extensive injuries to the left leg, likely caused by overcompensating to support the right leg. SE26 is in pain from its injuries. Unfortunately surgery is not possible and amputation is not an option either since Sea Eagles require both legs to support themselves on the ground and to hunt.
On welfare grounds the hard decision to euthanise SE26 has been reached. SE26 would not survive in the wild or do well in captivity. Further complications are likely to develop even in the short term.”

:brknhrt: :cry1: :cryhanky:

I sent answer to FB https://www.facebook.com/Sea.EagleCAM
But they banned me, why ???
So i post it here too
I know she already forgave you cause you need it so much guilties as you are. Laws that promote cruelty against animals are not good laws. Poor little SE26, why let you growing so much and a so long time if it's only to killed you at the end. On a scale of Pain, what was the value for SE26 ? Nobody can answer.. RIP sweet darling and i'm sure SE22, SE23, and SE25 were with you at this sadness and awful moment. I said them i knew how it was going to end for you. but Specialists have always the last and good word. "balivernes"!. Time to dry my tears and let you go. Love you so much

last message concerning this announced tragedy.
In fact human law, human non-intervention are the causes of this disaster.
SE26 was condemned from birth by human law. Is this normal? Those who knew, they lied to us by giving us hope. SE26 was killed because at the end we could no longer act for her, give her a life worthy of a wild bird and to stop her suffering.
Yet it seems to me that this suffering that we saw day after day did not bother anyone since we left her in this state which inevitably never got better since in fact her pain worsened until it was no longer possible to save her.
Conclusion, humanity and human laws kill wildlife. You have to ask the right questions. Don't all lives have the same values?
We are told that human intervention is only possible if the risk or problem is man-made.
Bad human law, which should be used to protect wildlife and indeed who does not, is not a man-made problem?

Yesterday i found an old video 09-27. At this time we already knew that SE26 had at least a big problem at one leg and SE25 was also in the nest at this time.

But it was still the happy days
I miss you little one, i miss both of you SE25 and SE26

Here are 6 pics from it

HD Video - 27th September, 2020 - SE26 is certainly the more vocal of the two seaglets. Both seaglets were watching the lorikeets playing above them and SE26 starting "talking" to them. Cute seaglet honks/squonks

5th January, 2021, Daisy Duck (as our chatters call her) has laid an egg in the middle of the Sea-Eagle's nest (hidden under leaves). Ducks practice delayed incubation, so she will likely add another egg each day till she's ready to incubate......BUT.....as you all know this nest has two very large owners. Dad and Lady spend much of their summer at Goat Island or their River Roost at Ermington, however they do visit. We haven't seen them for a couple of weeks so they are likely due to visit again soon.
Daisy is a Pacific Black Duck and she tends to visit each morning. More info on the species can be found here: https://www.birdlife.org.au/bird-profil ... black-duck

Jan 11 2021 Morning.
thanks to Lyndy U'Ren for posting on Sydney Sea Eagle Cam FB page.

Check out the footage at 8:58ish. Daisy duck took off when Dad Eagle arrived and didn’t have time to cover her eggs. Dad eagle has a poke around and then covers up the eggs! :thumlft:

All is well so far. Lady came today and did the same as Dad has. Poke the duck eggs a bit, then pick up some of the down and drops it closer to nest rim , goes to branch and soon flies off.

Daisy came back to nest and settled down in the empty bowl. :(
