NE24 eye looks better now and was seen opened most of the time yesterday. :rh:
Keep it up little one - I called him Simone like Simone Biles for his acrobatics due to Mom or Dad kicking the poor one over :dunno:. This chick is adorable and resilient :rh:

DNF laid her first egg today at 1:44 PM! How many more will she lay? She laid two eggs, three days apart, in 2019 and 2020, but moved her first-egg schedule forward from the 21st to the 16th this year. We'll see if she adds a third egg to her laying line-up! She spent the night in the nest yesterday, which is often, although not always, a sign that egg-laying is very close at hand. Congratulations to DNF and mate Mr. North on their first egg of 2021 - and we're all glad you waited for (somewhat) warmer weather! We are so egg-cited for this egg-ceptional event!
Watch any of these videos closely and you'll see her labor contractions. The final push seems to come at 3:51 in the video we posted - not long before she gets up, rolls her egg, and hovers over it. Watch for the sudden sharp push that signals the end of labor.

NE24 has been stuffed today and sporting a huge crop this afternoon. Observing size this little one looks more like 2 weeks old vs 1 week old! Samson and Gabby seem to be feeding for 2!

Audubon centre for bird of prey, Bailey home, released this.

This eaglet was rescued after his nest fell apart. Unfortunately his sibling didn’t survive the fall.

So here’s the story - permission granted by Audubon for sharing thanks to them..

I’m still wondering what did the parents and their sibling think about this ? According to the first report all family is ok

New sibling. Who dis?

Photo of eaglets in the nest from tree climber, Jim Lott, who braved high winds and placed an eaglet in a foster nest in Tarpon Springs, on Monday. Fun fact: Eagles will raise young that are not their own.

The little eagle was rescued after it's nest was destroyed, leaving no where for us to return him to. Using EagleWatch data an appropriate foster nest was found for him to go to instead!

Many thanks to our staff for caring and coordinating for this eaglet, and also, Anclote Key park staff, EagleWatch volunteers and the Raptor Center of Tampa Bay. It took a village to rescue, treat and find this baby a new home. We wish the new family well
Our wonderful EagleWatchers have already spotted the parents at the nest taking care of them, and the whole new family seems to be doing well so far!

Oh my poor mom Decorah north :no: :hlp:
The little big Albatross chick in New Zealand was left alone for the first time in “post guard” stage...
Not even an hour later he was “visited” by a curious juvie who pecked at him :cry1: , poor little one was scared ! We experienced this last year too but it doesn’t make it easier :no:
Then what a relief for him to see his dad coming back, giving him a great feeding before squishing him. He’s still here.

It appears this baby NE24 has a bump on his beak.. it could be an infection. as usual AEF is monitoring :cry1: I hope this will heal correctly and won’t be an issue for NE24 feeding !

And this too... TFL from National Arboretum has been missing for 8 days now and a new female is showing on nest, called V5 for the moment :( :cry1: . Mating, fish sharing and more already happen.

I know her from Honor and Glory, then Victor and Valor :cry1: she raised all her chicks successfully except Valor who died from West Nile Virus. The last two seasons no egg were laid. You are deeply missed TFL

New statement for NE24 :cry1:
I really need someone to explain to me that - only by watching AEF nests :
In 2017 they saved Honor eaglet at DC nest as she had her leg caught (not human caused)
In 2021 they let 2 eaglets die in Captiva on nest who were clearly poisoned- at least for Hope - with AEF being aware of neurological issues 11 days (!!) before her death. Human caused.
Explain to me. Why yes for Honor, and no for Hope, Peace and NE24 (even if it’s not human caused for him)

Samson and Gabrielle are at high risks of being contaminated knowing that AEF first noticed lesions 8 days ago ! :no: :cry1:


AEF-NEFL
AEF cam staff diligently monitors and inspects the adults and eaglets through the season. On February 20th, our volunteer staff noticed the appearance of two lesions on NE24, after consultation with our veterinary staff, we believe the eaglet is showing symptoms of a potential Avipoxvirus (also known as Avian pox) infection.
Avian Pox is common in warm, humid areas, and can be traced to seasonal mosquito increases.
Avian Pox can range from mild to severe. In mild to moderate cases, it can cause permanent scarring, with more severe cases, fatalities can occur.
The Northeast Florida (NEFL) Nest is a wild nest and infections such as Avian Pox can naturally take place. American Eagle Foundation policy, crafted in conjunction with USFWS guidelines, prohibits interference in a wild nest unless the situation can be directly linked to a man-made threat.
As always, viewer discretion is advised.

NE24 is recovering - or trying to. Gabrielle is caring for him so well spending hours day and night on his side :rh: :rh: i saw her last night getting up in the middle of the night trying to find something to eat - one if the very few days Samson wasn’t very successful. Now it’s better and lil one is eating well.

They are giving lessons to each of us especially those who hurts wildlife.

Gorgeous pic of sub adult Sunnybird!

Sorry to share terrible news from West End - a Catalina islands nest.
Thunder and Akecheeta had 3 eggs due to hatch in the next few days.
Dad was incubating when he left. 2 min later ravens came to the nest and destroyed 2 eggs and killed the chicks inside. :cry1: :brknhrt:
The 3rd egg was taken away.
This is a terrible outcome ! Last year they lost 2 clutches by ravens due to the inexperience of Akecheeta but the eggs were not ready to hatch !
All my condolences to IWS and all followers of that nest :cry1:
Just a few moments before

I’m not angry about ravens, they’re doing what they meant to do but it’s really sad to loose a whole clutch like this... for the 3rd time in 2 years.
IWS Dr Sharpe said there won’t be another clutch... but he said the same for Harriet last year after the loss of e14 !
