That's interesting, sunny bird. It kind of makes you wonder how they come up with the group names for the different birds and animals. :dunno:

Thanks for sharing it with us. The picture of the herons is beautiful!

5-27-19 Big Bear Eagles~ In Remembrance Of Cookie ❤ from knarley123 add le 28 mai 2019

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1jEXiV ... dex=2&t=0s

Cookie of Big Bear Lake lived a very short life. He was loved dearly by all and touched thousands of hearts, he will be missed terribly.
Here is a short video of some of my favorite clips of Cookie, Simba, Shadow and Jackie.
May Cookie fly high on angels wings now and forever. ❤

I always find difficult to watch tributes for deceased Raptors :(

I'm so glad all 3 Decorahs eaglets are taken care of and safe from black flies plague. the Great Spirit blue peregrine falcon nest have also issues with them. the 2nd eya, Carson, jumped off the box to escape them :( he's safe in the foliage below the box. his sister was killed by a GHO earlier this week :cry1:

I have a thought to Mom Decorah and DM2 and also DNF and dad Decorah North... what are they thinking :cry1:

on the bright side my Smola babies are growing and growing, sibling rivalry has diminished as Baron provides a lot... lot ! of food.

there won't be a health check this season as the eaglets are too old now. I think #1 is a female and #2 is a Male given the size difference and also the beak, feet and legs

From Mississippi River Flyway cam.
Bonjour Philjo:
I am still looking for Mere & Pere, I do not have good pics.
Bonjour Pascale: Just saw your recent Smola video, "dropping the stick"
They are so cute, I know why you watch them.

Hey everyone, Pascale has her videos on YouTube :D

Thank you, Peggy180: I got the idea from either MinnaNH or Nestfriend.
I learned that a group of eagles is called a "Convocation" of eagles---how distinguished! ;)

Thanks, Philjo, for posting the tribute to Cookie. I watched it when it was first published, as tears were streaming down my face. Watching it again today, I could actually look back with sweet memories and enjoy the photos. I think Simba truly grieved for Cookie, as did Jackie and Shadow; I think Simba still misses his sibling so much.

The black flies are causing terrible harm to wildlife, including our beloved raptors. You have to wonder about all the eaglets and birds who have not been found and have fallen out of or fledged from their nests prematurely.

Hello everyone, sure have missed you all this season! I look forward to being back this fall and enjoying all of your wonderful comments, pic's, video's, well all things in the world of nature.

Not sure if you all know but my much-loved Aunt shattered her hip and broke her femur, which required much time getting her back on the road to health. My Uncle suffered a health issue just prior to my Aunt so Den and I were already in full assist mode.

My sister unexpectedly passed away in September from a Stroke, that was very shocking. Then I had to have some work done myself regarding my heart, this required lots of hours in rehab after surgery, and finally on the healing side of life and my dad took ill, 3 weeks later after being released from the local hospital, he was helicoptered at night to the hospital here by me. He passed away 3 weeks ago. My first fathers day without him has been hard for sure. During the past 8 months of trials and tribulations, I have to say my faith, family, friends, and yes even my outside cat colony has helped me through it all. In fact I now am hand raising a baby kitten as it's been abandoned by a first time momma. My neighbor is waiting for this little bundle of preciousness so a happy home awaits it. And my heart is full of love for it.

Please give hugs to your loved one's and always remember to tell them how much they mean to you!

Take care
Rainna/Sandy D :rh:

Rainna, I don't think I know you but everyone at the SWFEC is part of a big family and I just wanted to send you a hug of support for all you've been through this last few months. You are a very strong person. Hope we see you in the fall and that you'll keep finding love and strength the way you are doing now with that lucky little kitten.
Best wishes,

Peggy :)

Hi Rainna, I sent you a few PM’s but never heard back. I’m so sorry for all the heartache and health problems you have gone through this year. I lost my Mother this past February so I know how you feel; Mother’s Day was hard. I’m glad you are healing and have had the love of a new kitty. We still have baby chicks at Glacier Gardens so you can still get your eagle fix there. I hope you have been able to follow all the highs and lows of your favorite nests even though not posting. You would have loved Sauces this year; so different from last year. That honor went to Frasier Point or Dale Hollow. :mihihi: :mihihi: Good to have you back and look forward to next season with you.

Sunnybird I do remember dancing in the rain with E9. Thats when I started watching the eagles with e9. I have read so many anatomy and physiology books on eagles and the life of eagles since 2017. But E9 caught my attention when I started watching him on ABC live news every day on tv. I would just leave the tv on tuned into him when I was home.

Rainna very good to hear from you. Always enjoyed your turkey vultures. Hope your family in the military is good. My nephew is still in the army and signed on for 4 more years. And his youger sister is following his footsteps and signed on for the air force. Hope you are doing well now.

Has any one been watching the Big Bear Eagle nest. A sweet nest high up in the mountains and national forest. Behind where my brother was assigned in the military. Any how if you watch this nest for any period of time the sqeals of simba are coming separate from when he is actually sqealing. I hate that when such a thing happens when you are watching a tv show. Where is your voice simba sometimes it is coming at a different time than the video.

Dear Rainna,

So very wonderful to hear from you; you have been missed here! So sorry that you have experienced medical issues yourself, as well as many family members. It sounds like you and your husband have been doing a lot of caretaking this past year. Condolences on the passing of your sister and father.

I hope life will settle down for you. Maybe the eaglets have given you a smile or two over these past months through all of the tragedy. I'm happy that you are able to help out the little abandoned kitten.

Love, Lanie

They fixed the voice of Simba at Big Bear Lake coming at a different time than in the video. Took a while for them to see the difference. Glad it is corrected.

Hi, Rainna. Glad you have faith, friends and family to see you through the difficult times. I have missed you this season at Sauces and look forward to seeing you here next season. I hope that everything calms down for you and your family. Please take good care of yourself. Get all the rest you need and stay healthy. I'll bet that watching the eagles is very beneficial. :yes:
See you back here soon. :huggie:

I have not seen any local eagles in a few weeks. Or, I see the flash of a white tail, or a white head in the pines, with or without my camera. :(
It has been a rainy spring and I only got one pic of a "bobblehead".
Mere & Pere's nest has shown no activity when I am there, and is difficult to see with all the growth of leaves & trees. :(
I thought I had missed wingercizing, branching and fledging. :no:

So Saturday, when I left the house to go to the Refuge I had no expectations except to enjoy the lake for a few minutes in the evening.
But I did bring my good camera & binoculars.
I am only parked for 3 minutes before I saw the birds in flight. Probably vultures I think, but look anyway. Wait a minute!
I see the molted look of a juvie, not the black wings of a vulture. It flew closer, YES! A juvie! :yes:
AND it landed right on Mere & Pere's favorite tree "The Eagle Tree" by the lake! :D
It was wonderful to see it land and then take off. No photos . . I just had to watch.
But "Chance Magnific" stayed on the tree long enough for over 30 pics.
:woohoo:

Such beautiful posts here. Happy Fathers Day to all the dad eagles here.Young and old. New eagle dads finding their way and seasoned eagle dads. And even well remembered eagle dads such as Ozzie long gone over the rainbow bridge. All a special day for to remember and celebrate you. A dad eagle works hard to bring food to the nest for the little ones. And even the Smola eagle dad over in Norway way up at the top of our world.
A very rainy day here a good day for human dads to relax and be with family.

oh wonderful Sunnybird!
now sad and (very) angry news for New Jersey Peregrine Falcons...

cleaning personnel went to the building roof to do some cleaning. and they had the ""wonderful"" idea of spraying the 3 eyas with water !!!

that scared them, one jumped and landed on a lower window and the 2 others are missing. they can't be found on cameras.

Update by lady hawk: one eyas was fed by parents. the 2nd eyas is still not seen.

how can people be so stupid to do that?
