E14 ~ you are the light in all of our lives. Never did I imagine we would lose you so soon and our hearts are broken. Your candle burned brightly for 26 days on earth and it lit up the skies & filled all our hearts with such love & joy. 💕

Our hearts rejoiced when you came into the world. Seeing you grow each & every day, our hearts were bursting with pride on each milestone you hit. From leaving the nest cup, to taking your first steps, from bonking Dad to hugging your egg sibling, from moving sticks, trying to self feed to seeing Mom, Dad and the nest tree reflected in your eyes - we were there with you every step of the way.

E14 ~ your light has now gone out from this world but it is forever shining brightly in the heavens. You are gone from us but not forgotten. You will live on forever in all our hearts. I will see you again little one, when it is my time to fly up to the heavens. But until then, I will hold your memory close to my heart remembering how blessed I am to have had you in my life. I will love you forever sweet baby. 💖

E14 ~ December 19 2019- January 15 2020 💔💔

Pascale sent me an email with this beautiful poem
Written by Kathy Kochanowski

Visit her FB page called "My Writings of Harriet, M15, Ozzie, and their eaglets. Kathy Kochanowski"

"The Aerie" - E14's Final Journey - as told by E14

You'd be surprised, cause there wasn't a bridge,
Instead, a steep riser that rose to a ridge;
The climb was exhausting, my dry sweat a coat,
Fear was the unknown, perched in my throat.
I reached a sharp dropoff, dread second to none,
When a male voice boomed, "Fly down, little one."

"Dad!" I yelled, and peered down below,
My heart hammered with loud audio.
A bald eagle beckoned, I flew down at once!
As if I'd been flying for months and months.
Then I looked up! This wasn't my dad!
Blind-sided I was, I knew I'd been had.
Yes, this man had good looks by the gallon
But his tail was ragged, a claw sans a talon.

My eyes took in acres of branches entwined,
Surrounding above were the rails I'd climbed.
I see it would take me hours to cross
This aerie with pine cones, fish heads and moss.
So many eaglets which walked on their wings!
They rolled little pinecones, their baby playthings.

"I want you to meet E's 3 and 5,
And then meet the others who didn't survive."
He took frail shoulders and turned me to see
The eaglets intrigued, now looking at me.
He corralled all his kids, so many others!
"E14, come meet your sisters and brothers."

Bewildered I stood, wingtips on hips,
I could not believe what would come from my lips:
"No disrespect sir, but bro didn't hatch,
You see, I was half of a one-two batch.
It's true, and I have no siblings to speak,
At night my mom kissed, sadly, only one beak."

He dropped to my level, his knees all buckled,
"My name is Ozzie," he quietly chuckled.
His smile was warm, his manner benign,
Then he regaled a tale which tingled my spine...
He ended, "....you have the blood, the blood of my girl,
The blood of Harriet, my heart, my pearl."

Just then I realized, he smelled of my home,
He smelled of the home in which I had grown.
I begged, "Can I stay... stay here with you?"
To which he replied without further ado,
"Oh, I've had my orders, which I still obey,
Your mom said, 'Ozzie, you'll let her stay.'"

I asked, "Sir, where will I sleep?"
"With your sibling," he said, winking, "my little Bo-Peep."
Then E5 rolled over someone I knew!
My bro! -still an oval, who couldn't break through.
My wings embraced him, and with comfort, I wept,
Exhaustion set in, and finally I slept.

Kathy's poem story is uplifting, wonderful and truth. Thank you for posting it and the love it shows.
What I like best is that I can "see" it exactly as it is happening, a gift Kathy has.

My friends, it is hard to convey in words all that E14 meant to us. I was thinking of words that represented E14 in my mind, and this is what I came up with. My nickname for her was "Feisty 14er", so here is my "thoughts poem". :rh: :brknhrt: :rh:

F funny
fierce
feed me, food coma

E energetic
entertaining
E14, aka Spunky, Sassy Pants, Feisty 14er, and JOY

I independent
inquisitive
imprinting immitator

S sassy
special
smart

T talker

thankful

Y young

YOU will always be in our hearts, Sweet 14

14 So adorably precious, so loved, so suddenly gone

From https://www.facebook.com/CROWClinic/

E14 NECROPSY RESULTS: The liver tissue of E14 from the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam nest, a male eaglet, was found to contain markedly increased levels of brodifacoum, a type of anticoagulant rodenticide or rat poison.
​Anticoagulant rodenticides, or rat poisons, prevent the blood from clotting normally and cause an animal that has ingested a toxic amount to bleed to death. Rodents that ingest the poison often become disoriented or lethargic as they are dying and become easy prey for eagles, hawks, owls and other predators, passing the poison through the food chain. Sadly, it is not uncommon for apparently healthy raptors to test positive for low levels of rodenticides, which have not yet reached the point of causing toxicity and illness. The adults in the nest likely have chronic exposure to rodenticides from the same food sources, but are not currently suffering any ill effects due to their larger body size compared to the affected baby.
For more information on anticoagulant rodenticides, please check out the following resources:
https://www.audubon.org/magazine/januar ... fO7J6dLHRw
https://www.allaboutbirds.org/news/rapt ... IBadBAe5ps
https://www.raptorsarethesolution.org/f ... ymSkI_QCFY
2020-02-20_10h35_44.jpg

So now, what can we say, E14's death was caused by anticoagulant, ok, and so a mademan problem…
and what did the human do to help him in that particular case ? Nothing. just discuss, speak, talk, rant and when a decision could arise, night is approaching so we'll see tomorrow ...
meanwhile, E14 lost his life one drop of blood by one drop of blood and who did not hear him screaming around 1:30 this morning there is no doubt how much he could have suffered from losing his short life and from being so abandoned.
We will never know if somebody should have been able to help and save him, we only know he died the 01-15 of 2020.
Do you know this term "no assistance to anyone in danger." it's exactky what we, human did with this poor little one. :cry1: :cryhanky:
Even if we know the cause of death, we must not get rid of what we could have done and what we did not do.
It is why I can no longer bear to read now those who exonerate themselves from this fact by asking us to go ahead, yo let E14 go away, and such Pontius Pilate announces that the eaglet died of raticide and so Lavabit manus meas et reddidit sub Pontio Pilato, I wash my hands of it .
Well, we are all responsible and did Nothing for E14, that is the only Truth.

Hello my eagle friends and fellow members of the E9 Bunch! Here is the poem that I wrote shortly after E14's passing. A little birdie told me to stop dragging my tailfeathers, that it's time to share it with you.


A Message from E14
For my beloved human family,

I was safe in my nest tucked high up in the tree, my Mom and my Dad keeping watch over me
Snuggled down deep, they were holding me warm, protected and calm from the incoming storm
My round belly was full and I had a large crop, I felt so much love living in that treetop!
I cuddled with Eggbert long into the night, my family and I nestled under starlight
Beneath their strong wings I fell into a sleep, my big feet resting soft, I began to dream deep
My wings spread out far and then lifted me high, Hey Mom! Look here Dad! I'm beginning to fly!
I rose into the blue and off toward the sun, I called back to them, This is so much fun!
Please don't you leave us!, I heard them both squee, but I think we knew then that it wasn't to be
I soared to the heavens and into the clouds, so many new sights, so many new sounds
Bright stars were twinkling and rainbows were shining, I flew over a bridge with a soft silver lining
I saw green trees and valleys and lakes full of fish, enchanting and calm, the sun like a warm kiss
On a delicate breeze I lay drifting content, over oceans and hills, peaceful joy where I went
Amid all this beauty I saw God's creatures roam, cherished pets and those wild, each He called to His home
I then heard a voice, Sweet E14 come here! I met eagles my mom told me that she held dear
There's magnificent Ozzie, my mom's first true love, always guarding our nest from his high up above
There's E3 and E5! And Eggberts One and Two! In this land in the clouds they have thrived and they grew
With Stepdad and my siblings I felt home again, but I missed Mom and Dad - what's to happen to them?
Gently the majestic and wise Ozzie squeed, You've been chosen with honor, you are special indeed
Up here in the heavens we have work to do, we look after all creatures, we spread love anew
Your parents are safe, nest life goes on for them, we all watch over the world of our Harriet and M
We keep eyes on your sibs who have fledged and moved on, great E9 and the others who've grown up brave and strong
Now look down in your pasture, do you see all those people, those who watch from a cam, those who stand by that steeple?
Their hearts breaking in sorrow, it's hard to understand, why nature seems different for eagles and man
Kind souls full of love, how they care for us so, they work hard to protect us and grieve when we go
Shedding tears when we hurt, cheering on our success, teaching others about us, our humans are the best!
I heard Ozzie's wise words and I suddenly knew, life has many facets, this is just one more view
My dream has come true as I soar through the sky, this is my beginning, it is not my goodbye
To my dear Mom and Dad, just like you I am brave, I will make you so proud, and I'll try to behave!
You have taught me so well and did everything right, I'll rise with you at dawn, perch beside you at night
To my beloved eagle people, I've not gone away, look up to the heavens, I am here every day
I'll bring you comfort with smiles so soft on the breeze, you'll feel eagle hugs, maybe hear some light squees
Like those flying before me on wings strong and wide, I will fill you with hope, I will stay by your side
I will always remember how greatly you care, we are all eagle strong with the love that we share
So take care of each other, and watch over the nest, I now know my job, I know you'll do the rest
And if you're feeling lonely, when you're feeling blue, just look up to the sky, I will be there for you.

With all my love forever,
E14
SEDs and SEH!
💕


Dearest E14,
We will always remember the joy and the love
that you brought into our lives.
Thank you, little eagle.
Rest peaceful. You are loved.

+March 16 - Caloosa School Nest - LE103 - Cape Coral, FL : Eaglets CSN1 & CSN2.

viewtopic.php?p=274528#p274528

As you can see on the photos below, The nest is at a football field in one of a local schools on top of one set of lights used during night games. This set of lights is protected by a lightning rod.

The 16th of March SueB, the ground observer, received a very :( message.
"I have sad news in case you didn’t hear. Both eaglets at Caloosa middle school impaled their wings on the lightning rod on top of the light post. A rescue was coordinated this morning. One eaglet passed away :cry1: the other was taken in for rehabilitation by CROW. :luck:

SueB asked CROW to send her an update on the 2nd eaglet.
this is the :( answer SueB received.
" Hi Sue. Unfortunately, the eaglet had very severe injuries to its wing that were not repairable and our veterinarians had to make the decision to humanely euthanize the eagle. I am sorry I do not have a better update for you! :cry1: "

CSN1 & CSN2 were around 9 weeks old

So CSN1 & CSN2 were so happy to train their beautiful wings, the sky was going to be part of their future life. Fate has decided otherwise. In fact they only build their wings to reach the heavens. So both, enjoy and fly endlessly. You were born to do it. It was your destiny.
