EagleCAM . Sept 14 20202 Update and summary :
We are still monitoring the situation with SE26 closely.

For those who have missed previous timeline updates or replies to posts on our timeline:, here is a summary.

SE26 has mobility issues, evident since hatch. He has already made significant improvements and has adapted "somewhat" to his situation (how often is 26 second to the dining table?). SE26's development has consistently been about 7-10 days behind SE25 (mobility wise). This also applies to tarsus standing (how they get around for the first 5-6 weeks). Given that SE25 has only started "foot standing/walking" (still wobbling a bit) this past week, we're yet to see how much progress SE26 could make.

Our research license is granted by National Parks & Wildlife with a non-intervention policy, however, as we have done in the past, we can intervene if one of the eaglets falls from the nest. We'd prefer not to speculate on cause or potential outcome(s) while the nesting process has only just passed the halfway mark.
The decent people need to keep being decent. The loving people need to keep loving. The polite people need to keep being polite. Whatever is good don't let it slide , anti it up , spread it around, make it visible.

I can take a hint 😉 😊
I've been trying to remember to add it to the description in the videos but I'm sure I've not been adding it to the pics that I post here.
I will attempt to remedy the situation. Please be patient with me, old dog/new trick kinda' thing. ;)

A little "monkee see, monkee do" here. But, I'll bet there were a few hearts that took an extra beat or two with how close to the edge # 25 was. 😉

From EagleCAM FB page. Aug 31 2020
Over the past week or so there have been many comments and speculation about the development of SE26 in particular.
The reality is we can only watch and see what develops.
As you all know, our policy, as approved by NPWS, is for non-intervention. There is no safe way indeed we could intervene, without endangering both chicks, the nests and even the parents. If in the future SE26 should fall to the ground, say on fledging, we would intervene and rescue him, and take into care.
There is plenty of food and both are being fed. There seems to be about a week difference in the development of the 2 little eagles.
At this stage, we can only watch and hope.
My warm thanks to you all for your wonderful observations and support of our Project though.
These are wild birds and it is still our great privilege
to watch them and feel wonder.

Dad delivers food and # 26 mantles over it until # 25 shoves him aside and proceeds to show just how it's done. This is the first time that I've seen self-feeding. A big step!

SEPT 30 2020
EagleCAM 's update :


"After advice from NPWS, we wish to restate that there will be no immediate intervention at the nest. We are watching their positive progress and will review the situation for SE26 if needed when hopefully the stronger eaglet SE25 fledges and leaves the nest.
If either eaglet should fall to the ground now we have permission to intervene for immediate rescue and have procedures in place to take that bird into an approved care facility.

We would like to remind our followers again, that the Research Approval for this project does not allow for any access to the nest itself or any handling of the birds or eggs. The Sea Eagles nest is over 20 metres above the ground in a large ironbark tree, part of the Sydney Turpentine-Ironbark Forest endangered ecological community. There is no access for vehicles and the only way to reach the nest would be to climb the tree with ropes. Unfortunately, this puts the climber, nest and birds at risk. Our priority is ensuring the welfare of both eaglets and in particular, successful fledging for the stronger eaglet, SE25.
While acknowledging that SE26 has a definite mobility issue, we are heartened to see both eaglets feeding well, developing their wings and self-feeding. SE26 has adapted his/her mobility somewhat and is able to stand on the left leg for short periods. For a bird this takes time. This has only been a recent development. We are monitoring the situation closely and have taken advice from veterinarians with expertise in treating raptors. However diagnosis is not definite without actual physical examination.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/owgz…/30th%20 ... 20SE26.MP4

When SE25 fledges, we shall discuss with NPWS the possibility for intervention for SE26, if required."
