I feel bad for national arboretum/ former DC Nest. there is no clutch this year

experts said that it was maybe caused by a female intruder who came to the nest while the first lady was away... and she got stressed about it. mr president still brings sticks to the nest, I feel bad for him.

Hope you all enjoyed Andy Pritchett and his sister coming on a special chat this past week on chat roll for SWFL eagles. They laid to rest some questions we had, and shared a personal part of their life with us Harriet followers. It was quite informative

Sorry to hear about the owls pestering Obey and River. I hate to see them pestering (and sometimes injuring our eagles) However, I am attaching a few photos of the Great Horned Owl we saw just beyond our backyard in the open field. We have often heard a pair of GHO's hooting to each other, but this is the first time we have seen one perched in a tree nearby.

Sad to hear about the President and TFL probably not laying any eggs this year. TFL was seen on Easter morning at the nest; so happy to know she has been spotted.

Glad you liked my owl photos, Pascale.

Can't wait to see an egg on Smola! Elida's 1st birthday celebration was really fun; great to see all the favorite photos and videos again of that special girl.

I agree about BB names; I am not crazy about either one.

9 inches of snow coming to Decorah eagles. Cold windy winter storm. Gonna need those Iowa corn husks to keep warm.

So exciting to the see the first little one at Smola. Great capture, Mimi. Sounds like he/she is a hungry little newborn; 5 feedings today so far, I think.

Eagleslanding, I sure hope they don't get that much snow. Hard to believe since it's in the 60's today in Decorah, but I know that's the prediction. Hopefully, the weather folks are wrong.

I wonder if E13 has flown off to start his new adventure? Such a bittersweet feeling as a watcher who loves to see them. Has M15 been around today? I remember one year where M disappeared for a few days, and it was thought that he was showing the dispersing eaglet the way.

hi Lanie

it's been a shock to see e12 waiting for his brother in the nest... I already miss this little one ! :cry1: .I always stand for the youngest eaglet and though I love e12 very much too... e13 is my favourite :oops2:

If I remember well M15 left shortly after e9 dispersed and yes some people said that he accompanied e9 to show him the way and help to separate from his home :rh:

Hi Lanie and Pascale, I was thinking the same thing. I also remember Harriet disappeared along with E11 the first time we though she had left to start her journey. I’m sad and miss E13, he was my favorite of the two, I think because it reminded me of E9 a little.

Eagleslanding, it is so hard for me to imagine snow in late April...hope for the best for all eaglets and others in that area.

:grhug:

A spring snowstorm to freshen up the earth. And now a blizzard coming across. Winter has not yet released us. Yet the pansies, yellow forsythia, hyacinth and tulips are popping up and don't forget the daffodils. The earth is coming alive with abundant growth. Even though snow is not yet out of the question. I love the cold better than to hot of a day. But here in the north a blizzard is stiil making its way through. I love as the seasons go through their changes.

I hope things get quieter now. Ottawa region in Canada knows flooding. in Norway temps are higher than in France :no:

My miles city eagle cam I also watch is under a blizzard warning. These late storms are hard as so many northern nests are full of new hatchlings. As is the case of miles city nest in Montana. But the parents are so patient with their new hatchling in these severe weather events. Very new little one welcome to the world, your mom will protect you on a winter day. Not good for the feeding though. Today was a good day a good wecome though.

Surprising news - E12 is back! Must have known we were all sad, missing her and her brother. Yes, I must admit that E13 was my favorite, too; he was a character and a loud-mouth at times, reminding me of our beloved Niner. I think they both are such extremely good looking eagles.

Here is our Pond Princess; I think she was missing Her pond.

SO happy we have a few more hours...maybe more...of E12's company! The morning will tell if our Pond Princess just needed one more dip, or if she'll stay a day or two. :luck:

#2 got welcomed by -very- bad bonking while he was 4hours old only but multiple feedings- 12 yesterday, 7 since this morning at 1:00pm helped in calming a little the aggression of #1. oh 8th now :grlol;

Pascale, thanks for posting the beautiful portrait of Dad and his two cuties. I'm glad they were born close together. They both seem to be doing really well. I can't believe how many feedings in a day; these parents are awesome! So glad to have two eaglet babes this year; Solo and Elida were wonderful, but the dynamics of two is always interesting.

Most of Iowa has been declared a disaster. Because of all the rains and snow melt causing severe flooding. Even the county where decorah is. What happened with Davenport Iowa where the levee broke has left the town and buildings under water the past few days is sad.

I know most of the locks and dams around the Trios eagles have been closed because of all the flooding. The mighty Mississipi River.

Surely the rain will clear up.

The eagles are high in the trees safe from the floods.
