You are welcome, Kitcat. I did finally watch it and kept saying, oh, poor baby, to myself. : :ohmy: She looked very scared. I am now glad that they don't show the drop to the ground on the cam. :donpan: I am not good with heights anymore. The older I get the more nauseous it makes me. :mihihi:
Dr. Sharpe, Nate and that whole team are an amazing group of people. :thumlft: So glad for all their hard work and dedication.

Hi jwin. So beautiful and so different from last season. She is a beautiful eaglet and I wish her well. Hopefully she’ll be home tonight.

This is so sweet. :rh: :rh: She must be exhausted. Sleeping at 3:36 in the afternoon. :D I haven't seen her too many times since she left. I'll bet she has some new friends. Before she fledged I was hearing lots of squeeing near the nest that wasn't her.

Get a load of that huge branch. :mihihi: I wish I had seen it brought in to the nest. It looks enormous.

Thank you, Philjo, for bringing the update about Saucy here - wonderful to learn that she's doing well and hanging out on the islands!

I read on Facebook that Dad Jax brought in a rather messy meal of seal placenta for Mom Audacity yesterday - and managed to drag it over her head. So - if you see what looks like blood on her head - it's not hers, and she got a good meal in the process!

It definitely was sad about the first egg, jwin and Marianne. Today is the likely day for her to lay her next one - and we are all keeping our fingers crossed.

They just lost another egg, according to the IWS chat. Also, apparently this nest has a 72% egg failure rate. Sad that we can't do anything to help. :cry1:

Jwin, so sad for this nest. The nest failure rate has got to be attributed to something in their environment. I read maybe the seal placenta are a contributing factor, something about the calcification of the shells. When is egg 3 due? Doesn’t she normally have 3? :luck: for that one.

I agree, Kitcat, it must be, but I wonder about the 3 from last year. They appeared to be quite normal. :dunno:
I don't know about the third egg. Mom isn't spending much time on the nest that I have noticed.

I saw that jwin. It is so sad. I wonder how Audacity loses so many yet had 3 to hatch last year. Read Dr. Sharpe thinks it’s something biological with Mom, not DDT related.

Definitely sad news. I do hope she stops at this point since it seems unlikely to get better this season.

I think it was 2018 when they raised three chicks, and last year she lost the first two eggs but the third survived and that chick fledged successfully - and I was hoping for at least a repeat of that. But.... :cry1:

Must admit I hadn't thought about the seal placentas as being a factor, but it makes sense as eagles eat the smaller bones from fish and birds and other types of food, and probably get some of their calcium from those - and placentas wouldn't have bones, though I have no idea what their nutrient content is.

Yes Judy, you’re right. I lost a year here and 2018 was such a standout year with those 3 eaglets that I forgot about calm 2019. We can never say never but I also hope Audacity is finished for this year. I wonder if they can retrieve the shell remnants for analysis? Didn’t they do that after the 3 broken eggs in ???2017.
