Hi E9 Bunch, tomorrow our E9 will be 25 months old. I hope he is keeping warm wherever he is :rh:

Sunnybird, this one is for you.

For everyone in the path of this severe and deadly cold weather, please stay safe and warm :luck:

:ty: Laniebelle for the welcome back. Your pictures from the lake are amazing.

I’m still here, enjoying our eagle families around the world, but specially SWFEC (Es are as adorable as they come) and I’m also enjoying nestorations and visitors at the Smola nest. I appreciate all news and scaps and pictures posted here.

Great news from Dale Hollow, thanks Phil! :wave:

Hi, Mimi

Love Vicki's photo of E9; thanks for the lovely customization. He was so handsome and such a character. Yes, even now, he will always be in our hearts and minds; thinking of him, always brings me a smile and a chuckle.

Thanks for your compliment on my photos. It was so thrilling to see so many BE's in one gathering spot.

I enjoy the Smola nest, too. So glad that Pascale introduced us to these Norwegian white tailed sea eagles.

So many problem to "log in" in today even with the "remember" me selected it becomes awful, i have to login at least 10 times in less than 3 hours
I stop for now and will wait for better luck tomorrow
Thanks for the E9's superb photo Mimi ! I miss him so much even if i sleep every night with him so close to my heart (more than 12 night TShirts with his photo in front and in the back of it… and never the same one ) Have a good day all :huggie:

E9 night shirts...I got to get me some of those :love: He is stuck in our hearts forever.

So sad about the GBH. It reminded me of another raptor that stole a piece of my heart too :rh: I wonder were our Spunky is or if he is acting like the hawk Is.

I’m having a problem posting pictures right now. Is it only me?

Sad about the black hawk. I don't think Portland got the big freeze. How is or did this hawk lose his legs? The polar chill was mostly in the midwest. And they say for the eagles they can withstand these temps of -40 to -50 wind chills as their feathers act like down keeping them warm. They won 't spend time in the nest when its this cold they will go to a branch in a warmer spot. Was that in Portland Oregon.

As for me I stayed inside many states of emergency. Even asking us to turn down our furnaces to 65 and lower as per governor. Everything pretty much closed down. Yet nearby Canada running normal.And nothing closed there. So if no eagle on the nest in the northern states the eagle found a warmer spot on a branch.As for us humans because of the people that did not make it through cold snap. I am staying inside. Not a creature is stirring not even a mouse. Don't want to get caught outside.
But yes not understanding this beautiful black hawks woes.

Thanks Judy B, I gave up’trying To connect yesterday. Today it works. Phewwww !

Do you remember Elpis. The harpy eagle Juvie in Peru. She’s still in her nest, all grown up and she’s chasing Dad !

https://youtu.be/cwlYsf0ePiA

I’ve learned that Juvies can stay 2 years with their parents !

So sad about that beautiful black hawk... wildlife must be suffering so much with this terrible weather ! :rh:

I saw a post of David Hancock about domestic animals left outside with these temperatures. I think, hope, people are doing the necessary.

This leads me to introduce you to my Australian Shepherd... her name is, well, Elida :rh: :gdog:

:brknhrt: :cry1: I'm sorry to announce that the Great Black Hawk was euthanisedyesterday. :cry1: :brknhrt:
All the cells of his legs was dead and nothing can be done to heal him (it was a male)
RIP little guy !
2019-02-01_10h29_12.jpg
https://www.facebook.com/Avian-Haven-381894018553252/

Great Black Hawk - 1/31
Yesterday, our senior staff met onsite with two additional veterinarians as well as two wildlife biologists from the Bird Group of Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Diagnostic tests that included infrared thermography and doppler ultrasound revealed no circulation at all in the feet or lower legs up to where leg feathers can be seen in the photo posted 1/28. Underneath the bandages, both feet were discolored and beginning to decompose. As of yesterday, the bird was lying down during the day, not just overnight, and was not eating as well as previously.
Frostbite is well known for its insidious progression. When the body’s cells freeze, they expand, burst, and then die. Cells that form skin, muscles, nerves, tendons, and blood vessels are all affected, and once those cells die, they cannot be brought back to life. The goal of frostbite treatment is to limit further tissue death, though the success or failure of those efforts may not be apparent for several weeks or even months. Based on how rapidly the hawk’s feet deteriorated, we suspect that the initial frostbite damage occurred well before the bird was found on the ground on January 20, when frozen feet and associated pain had likely resulted in an inability to perch. Although he may not have appeared to be in distress in the few days prior to his rescue, any injured wild animal will hide discomfort until unable to compensate.
Our treatment efforts followed the most up-to-date protocols in human and veterinary medicine. Sadly, however, because foot and leg tissues had already been irreparably damaged, those efforts came too late. For those of you who have asked, our treatment plan included topical applications to enhance skin viability, plus a suite of medications to control pain and promote blood flow to extremities: western/conventional drugs, herbal formulations, and homeopathic remedies. We also used low level (“cold”) laser treatments.
Of course, we had hoped that the frostbite damage would be minor and that the bird might be releasable. Once the extent of the damage became obvious, possibilities for prosthetics use and captive placement were discussed at length. In this bird’s case, neither option was realistic. First of all, the damage was too extensive: both legs as well as both feet had been damaged. Secondly, animals that adapt best to prosthetics are not only less severely affected, but they are also of calm temperament, comfortable around people, and used to being handled. None of us could even remotely imagine a reasonable quality of life for a wild bird having two artificial legs that would need frequent adjustment, and that would likely never be completely comfortable. Related hawk species present in North America are known for their high-strung, hyperactive temperaments, and this bird has been no exception to that general rule. During the hawk’s stay here, we often had to turn off the cage lights to discourage challenges to the cage walls. The wildlife professionals who met yesterday all agreed that the Great Black Hawk would never successfully adapt to captivity, especially without even one foot that could be used in a natural way to perch, grasp food, or land successfully after flight.
The decision to euthanize was completely unanimous among all who gathered here yesterday, though that decision was tinged with regret, sorrow, even heartbreak. It was seen by some of us as an end of suffering, and by others as the release of a spirit from its hopelessly damaged shell. Either way, all of us believed it was the only course of action that was fair to the hawk.
Although greatly saddened that this beautiful hawk could not be saved, we take some comfort in knowing that she or he touched a great many lives, bringing people together and inspiring a greater interest in the natural world. Although this was an extreme case of species displacement, with changing climate and increasing destruction of natural habitats, it is likely that we will see more and more animals dispersing from their homelands into territory they are not well adapted to. A decision as to what will happen to the remains has not been made, though several scientific institutions are under consideration. Genetic studies may finally reveal the original home of this remarkable visitor to Maine.
All of us at Avian Haven extend our profound appreciation to all of you for the good wishes, prayers, love, and support that have poured in during this remarkable bird’s stay here. We intend to dedicate your donations toward funding a special project that will enhance our ability to care for future birds, whether or not they are frostbite victims. For us, and for many of you as well, today will be a day of grieving, but also of imagining this extraordinary Great Black Hawk flying free again in some realm other than our own.

So sorry to hear about the great black hawk. Glad to hear that Poppa has been spotted and seems to be doing okay.

E9 nightshirts sound like a winning idea!

Pascale, thanks for posting that precious photo of your dog, Elida. Such a wonderful name, and she looks beautiful, too, just like Elida the Eagle.

Good for River & Obey.

Yes, I've seen some photos of eagles with frost/ice on their eyelashes/brows. It seems to be warming up in Iowa, anyway.

Philjo, I love your shirt verso/recto! I want one! Do you really have it, or, I think you may be teasing. All those wonderful photos of our E9 up to his antics on the back - so cute.

I went to a nearby reservoir this afternoon; I saw about 25 bald eagles! Mostly juvies or subs, but some adults. They were quite a distance away, so no decent photos, but what a wonderful joy to see them.

So thank you Philjo on the articles on the black hawk. So far away from home. All the way to Maine from her native home of central or south America. A ride on a plane perhaps. So I can see how she/he ran into feet issues in cold Portand, Maine. So far away.

So Canaye I have not seen him/her before. I have a cat Lily with all white hair and one blue one green eye. She is the daughter of a barn cat out of a litter of six. I lived across from a vegetable stand in Ohio at one time. The owners had a farm. With a beautiful sunflower field. They had the litter in a crate at the stand. FREE KITTENS. About the third time I saw them I fell in love. Lily is still with me and now a lovely leisurely house cat no longer in Ohio. She is now on my lap and the watcher of the house.
How did you meet your cat, Canaye?

Pascale, very sorry to hear about Birdbrain 56. She created many beautiful videos.

Eagleslanding, thanks for your story of Lily. Can you post a photo of her?

Philjo, another terrific T. You were very clear to get those made; what a great idea! I just received a t-shirt with Dad Decorah in flight - so beautiful.

Phil, I love your kitty! So pretty. Is she a tortoiseshell?

Phil, you have a very good taste in pictures for tees :love: your cat is a beauty too. She looks very comfy there.

Sounds like Lily is a beauty, as Laniebelle, I would also like to see a picture of her.

Birdbrain56, may you RIP.

Thanks to all of you :huggie:
To Birdbrain56/Hope, i didn't know you but yous had to be a "belle person" to love eagles, birds, animals and nature like you did.
As you used to follow also NEFL, now you know the Juliet's secret and met also our tiny NE20 and certainly so many others... RIP dear Hope.

Mimi, i haven't a good taste for tees, i was Lucky to find E9, that is so simple with him/her.

Lanie, i was sure you must have one and that your choice would be Dad Decorah… and Canaye is a Tortoisehell

And yes Eagleslanding so sad for a southern bird like this black Hawk to fly so nothernly and died beaten by the cold weather

Canaye is 9 years old, she was found by a friend of mine, in an electric box with 2 siblings as he noticed their mom wasn't seen for more than one day. She never returned even after babies were taken away, i have the choice of 3. Canaye came toward me and that's it, she made the choice like did my last dog (rip beautiful friend). When i was using my computer, at my desk, she used to stay sleeping Inside the pocket of my jogging jacket. Voilà !

Last. i took a picture of SE21's nest the Sea Eagle from Sydney, first time i saw them there...

Philjo, so special that you were Canaye's chosen person, and that you rescued one of the kitten orphans. I think it's such an extra special blessing when the animal chooses the person.

The birds in Sydney are so beautiful; parrots of some kind?

For those that follow Decorah North, good information shared on RRP's DEC North webcam page:
Nestorations, Courtship and Bonding
Plus – Info on the ID and names of the current pair

We are lucky to get to observe the eagles at this nest, DNF and Mr North, for so long before egg laying time. We’ve seen many interactions between them. Many of them are part of their courtship and bonding activities. When photoperiodism (behavioral changes associated with longer daylight hours) begins to occur, bonding and courtship activities begin to increase and will intensify as they get closer to the time to produce eggs. Working on the nest is a bonding behavior for eagle pairs. While we may think they are fighting or "arguing" over stick placement, this is also part of their bonding, including when they place a stick together. Activities such as these nestorations, as well as things like aerial displays, perching together on a branch, sharing food, the male bringing food to the female, beaking, vocalizing back and forth and together, rubbing or stroking – even pecking - each other, hunting together, and of course copulation, are all part of their courtship and all help to strengthen their bond and trigger reproduction. We should look for increases in the behaviors we can see on cam in the coming weeks. Mr North may bring in food for DNF and more grasses and sticks. DNF may start to become more excited and vocal about these offerings from him. We may hear more vocalizations between them. It’s an exciting and interesting time! 😊

there is an egg in Sauces island, West end should follow soon.

there is now in front of our eyes a GHO trying to take over a red tailed hawk nest at Presidio nest (San Francisco). Mom GHO laid one egg, but mom RTH doesn't agree with that and attacked her in daylight while she was incubating... RTH already attacked her before. the egg was left uncovered for a while until mom GHO returned to brood it for the night.
GHO are far more powerful than RTH, even than eagles and this might end badly for the hawk :no:

:vid: of the RTH attack on the GHO, thanks to Lady Hawk
