Unfortunately one passed away . Survivor was at the nest with female. I will bring over my video.

here is slideshow
please bear with water marks. I tested this last year and am in process of buying program. So sad , today. My heart is really hurting. I have rescued and picked up many a falcon, deceased and alive. I have th e pleasure of releasing so many back . I have young ones( 3 weeks) at home and juveniles , till biologist can pick up or I get them checked so we can put back at nest site. But it always hurts when we have to pick up one that is deceased.

Such is their life. may it soar free now

let me know if you cannot view

I have a video made by Deeagle. It does show the fight on the ground. so sad that one was killed. They had been fighting on several occasions.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRw--TZnQR0 :vid:


From LadyDeeagle55

One did not survive and was retrieved by FWC.We do NOT know the identity of the eagle that passed...
Why did all of the Crows show up?....
According to Swift, this behavior is a way for crows to observe whatever might have killed the dead bird and learn to avoid the same fate. Flocking into a large, noisy group provides them protection from the threat if it's still around...

Thank You Eagle Country for the live feed.

I'm not so sure that the female cares for this male who is at the nest today. I'm not sure if he is he winner of the fight the other day or not. I do know that he has a very dirty head. :D

Not too many looks at eagles here today. This first eagle in the morning is a stranger to me. It has a very dirty tail, a dirty head and a banged up foot.

This one I think is the female who has been here but not being able to see her tail I'm not sure. She was here later in the afternoon.

Early this morning there was an eagle on the nest. I believe it's the one I call dirty tail who is a male. He was joined by the big female who I call white spot. They didn't have a long visit but they worked on spreading around some fresh nest fluff.


These two scaps are the male who I guess won the big fight. I have named him Dirty Tail although he could be Messy Head too :D

this is certainly a work in progress. Female had a fish on nest this noon hour , an d the eagle we call mossman came in after her.
but it has been a test between young adult and mossman.
it was a complete seesaw yesterday after 5pm but I believe it was mossman, or dirty tail as you say, that was last man in and spent night in remote tree.



will try and come back in and post a few recognition photos if you like.

This morning White Spot came to the nest with a huge many branched "stick". She had a terrible time with it and never did solve the problem of what to do with it. I do have to admit that it was quite amusing to watch her deal with it :D

Here comes White Spot with a huge stick

The stick was all wrapped around her--she was caught in a "V"

lots of nest building. Moss man brought in some fluff but female brought in lots of fluff and several trips of big sticks. As you have noted, she is a treat to watch with those sticks. they both worked very hard at nest

let us hop e this is the fresh start we are waiting for.
I will be back with a few photos later if no one else has any.

have a great day and stay safe :bye 1:
