07h43 One of the adult came back. i saw some little light wings moves from both but the adult never brood them
Some says that there was not enought food in the area and that can explain the decision taken by Milda, to let her eaglets alone until their own end...

Yes maybe Milda took the decision to sacrifice them... this is very sad :cry1: what a tough season for them.

It looks like Legacy left her nest area and her parents two days after her fledge. Gretchen and Glen from AEF looked after her yesterday and didn’t spot her. Her parents have been waiting for her on the nest tree, bringing food to entice her.
I’m so not ready to let her go and worry a lot. She’s 81 days old only... :cry1:
If you left baby. I hope you found some other juvies to play and learn with. I only hope nothing bad happened to you.
Samson had an encounter with an hawk yesterday.

Another sad news. Californian condor Iniko won’t have a brother or sister this year. The egg fails to hatch and parents leave it more and more. Flies were seen on it.

Cali Condor
Ventana Wildlife Society:
"Unfortunately it appears that Phoenix and Redwood Queen's egg is not viable this year. It is not unusual for a new pair to fail when nesting together the first time. In terms of experience, Phoenix has only successfully reared one chick in the wild, whereas Redwood Queen has reared multiple chicks. We are probably too late in the nesting season for these two to recycle and lay another egg. However, we can surely look forward to another attempt next year.

In terms of inspecting the failed egg or possibly swapping it out. The Dolan fire seriously compromised the base of the Redwood tree and the status of the climbing anchor is very questionable, it's definitely not safe for us to climb, the risks far outweigh the benefit at this stage. We are optimistic that the redwood tree will add new growth and refortify itself over the next few years. Condors and redwoods are similarly resilient!

Thank you all for tuning in and following this nest so closely! We still have 8 nests going strong in central California- 3 with chicks, 5 still incubating eggs. The chicks are #1077​, #1078​, and #1089​. We will assign names to the chicks later in the nest season, so stay tuned!

The wildflowers are really cranking on the Sanctuary cam right now, so enjoy the purple lupines and California poppies in their full splendor.

If you missed last night's Condor Zoom Chat, you can watch here:
https://youtu.be/U-d2DSuB9JU​"

Mom: Redwood Queen #190​​, hatched in LA Zoo in 1998, 22y.o.

Dad: Phoenix #477​​, hatched in Big Sur in 2008, 13y.o.

Redwood Queen lost her mate of 14 years, Kingpin #167​, in the Dolan Fire of 2020. She paired with Phoenix #477​ and laid an egg around 2/26/2021. The egg is expected to hatch on or around 4/24/2021.
The pair nests in a natural Redwood tree cavity. "The inside of the nest cavity is approximately 4-5 feet wide. The cavity entrance is south-facing and about 60 feet above ground less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean. Judging by the size of this one, it could be over 500 years old!"

Legacy is home! :woohoo:
screenshot_04.jpg
:rh: :rh:

I never doubted for a minute that Legacy wasn't safe


Our wonderful mod and Cam Op lisaSAEF just related this enlightening story: "Hi Everyone. BabyhawkAEF let me know Legacy was back at the nest YAY! It could be possible she was loitering at the nest down the road. The neighbors called me this AM that there was a juvie behind their house in a tree. I was called at 10:45 and was there in 15 minutes. The juvie moved from tree to tree closer to the nest. The adults left it alone. Once it was in the tree closer to the nest they chased it off and it was probably around 11:20. I drove around but when it crossed the water I could not see it any longer. Due to the timing it could have been Legacy. They will keep and eye out now. They say there was one there yesterday but thought it was their eagles. They called me today because the whole family was home and realized there were 3 babies."

sharipf_AEF#8439 Today at 2:53 PM
Just to reassure everyone - Legacy has done a couple of crop drops since her return late morning. This is evidence that she either found some food or was fed by the parents while off the nest. She is likely very hungry but she is not starving! :FishEmoji: :FishEmoji: :FishEmoji:

So sad for Jabu as Nikita his mate, Tankwa and Yôko announced his death a couple of weeeks ago at the La Flêche Zoo :( :brknhrt: :cry1:
Rip Jabu.

From Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Zoo.de.La.Fleche
2021-05-12_10h51_10.jpg
©Zoo.de.La.Fleche
It is with deep sadness that we announce that Jabu, our male white lion, left us abruptly a few weeks ago, at the beautiful age of 15 years.
The examination performed by our vets immediately after his death allowed us to understand the causes. The analyzes showed that Jabu's spleen was abnormal and affected by a cancer called "lymphoma". During the previous weeks, Jabu did not show us any warning signs, so it was unfortunately impossible for us to know that Jabu was developing this terrible disease.
Jabu was born in November 2006 and he arrived at La Flèche Zoo in 2008. Jabu has marked the spirits of everyone, generated 21 beautiful births and shared beautiful moments of life with Nikita, his partner. It will forever remain an emblem of La Flèche Zoo and its species. Jabu was an extraordinary lion, with a strong character and very protective of his family. Everyone here knew him and remember many beautiful memories.
To this day, Nikita, Tankwa and Yôko do not seem to be affected by Jabu's absence but we are of course attentive to their well-being.
Thank you Jabu for your beautiful descendants and the beautiful and intense moments that we will all have lived in your company.

Gunnar took EE1 & EE2's lifeless bodies (in fact only their clothes because their souls were already with our Creator.) and handled them with great delicacy. I expected no less from him. They deserved these two little angels. Merci for them.

Modified: Gunnar, Estonian Eagle Club Member said that EE2 had a very full or swollen belly. A huge pellet was stuck in EE1's throat. He said: chick has been trying to regurgitate this pellet long time.
Gunnar took everything from the nest. including the hare carcass. He left the fish behind because they are not toxic.

Hi everyone
Sunnybird, Philjo
Lately we had to let go SWFL Es and NEFL Legacy. All eaglets had issues - eye infection and avian pox, but all went through and grew up strong and left... all pretty early !

I follow a golden eagle nest in Romania (Central Europe). There’s one chick and a beautiful and caring mom. dad doesn’t come to the nest - they installed the cam when the chick was very young :no: and dad got scared ! But he provides the family...

I’m very careful with this nest due to the story of Klints last year. But it’s difficult not to love them :rh:

She is not back yet but seen every day flying, branching or following Freedom and Liberty


03-06-2021 at Redding ca, Honor never branched but choosed to fledge (74 do)
Yesterday evening it was seen on a grounded trunk. very hot weather and so not too much fishes brought in the nest these last days.
