What a beautiful sight, the happy days ! only one month before...
Something awful in this nest is, during the last two seasons, 6 eggs laid, 5 hatched and only one fledged ...

RIP mon ami :cry1: :brknhrt: :rh:

Some hours before leaving us, Flappy lost his balance and was on his back (beginning of the video) and had many problems to maintain its head up. At the end of the video is the last image from Flappy because it went off sight. :brknhrt:

I missed this NCTC-Shepherdstown West-Virginia family and i'm very sad and sorry about that, so please forgive me...

MIA February 28 - NCTC-Shepherdstown West-Virginia, Mom Belle

Last day of Belle in her nest
Thank you very much Debs for these 2 beautiful collages of "Belle".

After the egg was laid things came to a head at the nest ... a territorial dispute left Belle with a significant injury! Belle landed on nest and she appeared to have issues standing and with mobility. Her wing or leg (perhaps both) were injured! Several different eagles appeared at the nest and Belle and Smitty did their very best to defend their nest and their egg. After the territorial dispute Belle failed to return to her nest ... many of us watching feared she died from her injuries. Over the course of several weeks and months there were different females ... seen at the nest.
This text was written by Debs viewtopic.php?p=856#p856
Thank you very much Debs !

Corr. December 29: As Debs wrote to me a couple days ago, confirming me that Smitty is back to his nest, i corrected this thread and replaces the previous pic for 2 new one of Belle, who is still missing….

MIA December 17 - NEFL, Florida, Mom Juliet
herlastmorning2018-12-17_07h15_49.jpg
My last pic of Juliet
She was last seen that day around 09h30 am. Many intruders in the area and during the night of december 12 Juliet came back with battle and blood marks on her head feathers and beak. 3 and 4 days after on the pic we can always see the mark on her beak. after the battle she let Romeo incubating the 2 eggies almost all the time. It was not her habit during the night. Her last morning she flew away at 07h30 am and was last seen at 09h30, just having a look at her 2 eggs and flew away. :cry1: :brknhrt:

+ December 25 - NEFL, Florida Eaglet NE20
2018-12-26_11h13_28.jpg
The last image captured by LadyHawk on her video
"Thanks Lady Hawk for your video "AEF-NEFL ~ NE20's Last Moments Before Eagle Attack 12.25.18" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k54msCjM3wc
NE20 was trying to hatch for over 34 hours and was still in half of the shell. You will see its egg tooth to the upper right - it appears like NE20 is on its back. Romeo was away from the nest for over two hours probably hunting while NE20 was trying to hatch when the adult female intruder eagle A3 came to the nest and killed NE20 and flew off with it. (This was not A2 the young eagle who incubated the eggs). Romeo returned a couple minutes later and looks at the empty shell and the other egg before settling down to incubate it. I was not recording at the time of the attack but was watching live and that footage is not included in this video. This outcome is tragic but not unexpected under these circumstances as the female eagle was only doing what instinct dictates - eat to survive. Stealing the fish Romeo brought to the nest yesterday and today and eating on the nest shows she is laying claim to the nest and territory. My heart goes out to all the viewers who watch and love this nest & to our dear Romeo who will continue to incubate the other egg for an unknown period of time. Prayers for Juliet that she is still out there and will one day return. Thank you for watching! Video captured & edited by Lady Hawk AEF-NEFL 2018 American Eagle Foundation Eagles.org https://nefleaglecam.org/ "

That Christmas day, Dad Romeo needed some break and so nobody to keep an eye on the eggs. At 17h05, the poor NE20, alone, immediately born, immediately killed by a female intruder who brought her/his body away with her… the second egg is considered as non viable… Romeo resumed his incubating duty... :ohmy: :cry1: :brknhrt:
NE20, i'm sure Mom Juliet was there with her wings wide opened to welcome you, to warm you, and to promise she will be Always there for you too…!

" I wanted to share a tribute pic I did for the NEFL nest the day sadness took my heart.I had been watching that Egg for about 12 hours straight when the tragedy struck! I could not get the scene out of my head. Doing this tribute eased my heart and grief immensely."

MIA August - Decorah North, Mom Decorah North
RRP finaly confimed (2019 January 20th), At Decorah North, the female with Dad isn't Mom. https://www.raptorresource.org/2019/01/ ... ouncement/
"Note that Mr North will continue to have the same name and the new female will be DNF for Decorah North Female. She will not be known as Mrs North (that name is now retired) and she will not be Mom North either. Thank you!"

this news bring me back to the May 25th, the day Mom and Dad Decorah North lost DN7 and DN8...
Mom Decorah North,
I can understand your despair and your suffering after the failure of your last four eggs.
DN6 in 2017, your first egg in 2018 and finally DN7 and DN8 in last May.
Possible that after that, faced with adversity, faced with a situation may be too difficult, Mom Decorah North, you finally decided to lower the wings définively but this is only my guess, that of a human...! I missed you Mom Decorah North but how good to know you certainly joined yours so beautiful chicks. Fly free, fly high with all of them !

Mom Decorah North, DN7, DN8, two days before the tragedy

We will meet again in another world !

Thanks Philjo....that was particularly sad......I hope they fly free.

Little owlets in the pot,
mom by side, lovingly taught.

Was not to be,
an accident for all three.

Sorely missed but not forgotten,
albeit wee.

Thanks Philjo....that was particularly sad......I hope they fly free.

Little owlets in the pot,

Was not to be,
an accident for all three.

Sorely missed but not forgotten,

+ April 6/7 - Sheperdstown, W.Virg : BE eaglet ANGEL,

Message from Debs on the NCTC thread viewtopic.php?p=179620#p179620
"A heartbreaking loss at the NCTC nest this morning; one of the baby eaglets (Angel) has passed away possibly due to trauma although we do not know the cause for sure. Things were going well at this nest so the loss is especially sad.
Yesterday the two chicks (Hope and Angel) explored the nest for the very first time ... they moved up to the rails and enjoyed two feedings at the side of the nest. Food was plentiful and the chicks were adventurous and active everything looked great last night.
This morning we woke up to one of the chicks (Angel) laying lifeless at the top of the nest by the fish pantry! So unexpected and a shock for all of us that follow this sweet eagle family" Merci Debs.

You're welcome Lanie !

As today is the 3rd day Simba, Cookie's sibling, seems to be better and better, (he was weak before and i can almost say it began just after Cookie left us), it is time for me to say a last "au revoir" to a so marvellous Cookie with a magnific video from knarley123

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. ❤
Merci Knarley123

and also a superb pic credit to Ned Clancy, thanks to him for being there at this special moment.
I find it at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater
on the FB page of Friend of Big Bear Valley just after the death of Cookie
You can see Simba (13 days old) and Cookie (12 days old) It appeared to me … like a premonition ?

Simba is the left one, Cookie is the right one
It seems like if Cookie was already, so young, watching toward the heavens...
And have a look at Simba's face, it seems also so sad.
May be, so young, they already knew something about Cookie's destiny.

A tragedy at Beacon Hill Park. I tried to summarize what happened in this area

June 2019
The 3rd. 2 beautiful eaglets in the nest
The 15th. One adult in the nest
The 17th. Some people think the 2 eaglets fledged away or hidden in the trees around
The 20th. One fledged eaglet and two adults were seen at or around the nest.
The 24th. Two adults were seen in the early morning. A neigbour was able to see the eaglets but no movements detected. He contacted the official services. :cry1: :brknhrt:
The 27th. A guy up to an adjacent tree from where he confirmed two eaglets were dead in the nest. One climbed to the nest and brought down the two poor little bodies for analysis. :cry1: :brknhrt:
the 29th. One saw an adult eagle circling near the nest :luck:
July 2019
the 6th. An adult is sitting in the nest

+ July 06 or 07 - near Redding, Ca : Hawklet in a bald eagle nest TUFFY.

How in 3 weeks a little hawklet could he capsize so much heart? No one knows, but its short life has left such an imprint on our lives. Rest in peace little Tuffy, you have all life before you now with all those who have precede you. You will always feel that love and tenderness that you have beautifully created around you. Thank you for everything :rh: Tuffy :rh: !

Thanks a lot to Terri/Eaglewoman for these 3 pics of Tuffy and its eagle family

Update on Tuffy the Red-tailed Hawklet & the Eagle Family for Monday July 8th, 2019:
I'm so heartbroken to report to you that our concern for little Tuffy is growing day by day. We have not seen Tuffy in or near the nest since Friday 7/5/19 around 7:30 pm when my husband & I were out there checking on the raptor family. Tuffy & the 2 eaglets & both adults looked fine & all was well when we left the area that evening.

On Saturday 7/6 ... We left the area at 8:30 pm as we were losing light.

On Sunday morning I was out there at 6:00 am & Tuffy was still not back up in the nest? I watched 2 feedings by Mama Eagle & thought for sure Tuffy would fly in to get fed! But, the feedings passed & still no sign of Tuffy? ….
… My husband was nice enough to go back out there on Sunday evening around 5pm to check the area again. Still no sign of our little Tuffy?!?
So, we decided we should go check under the base of the nest tree to see if we could spot any signs of Tuffy? My husband saw some black bear scat at the base of the tree & we found a few more piles of bear scat nearby. Then, we found a few feathers that looked like they could be hawk feathers? We kept searching the area for about 30 minutes or so & were about to head back down when my husband spotted a lot of what looked like hawk(banded brown & white) feathers scattered all over the ground!!! My heart sank as I thought I could be seeing all that was left of our courageous, inspirational little Tuffy....
Now, of course we don't know 100% for sure those feathers did belong to Tuffy, but things are not looking good. :( As hard as this is for me to tell you & for each of you to hear, I want to be perfectly honest with all of you who have fallen so deeply in love with our little Tuffy. It's the least I can do…
I checked the nest again this morning for several hours in hope of a miracle but still no sign of Tuffy, no calling or flying around the nest area? We will wait a few more days & continue to check the nest for any signs of Tuffy showing up before we assume that Tuffy has left us & his adopted eagle family & this Earth we inhabit…
Thank you all again for being on this incredible journey with Tuffy & the Eagle Family! We have all been awed & inspired by this courageous little red-tailed hawklet & we are still holding out hope for a miracle!!!
Please continue to keep Tuffy in your thoughts & prayers! ~Terri

Between Tuffy and the Beacon Park Eaglets sadness, joy over Tuffy's life, yet, so much more to be.

We delve deeply into the lives of our feathered friends,
we never know what the journey will bring,
sometimes great joy, sometimes great sadness....
and we know all along this is the way of nature, so....

Cling to some joy, cry some tears and know all is in God's hands.

+ July 25 at 02h02 - Hog Island (Me): Rachel and Steve 's younger osplet Dion .
Brought by a GHO. :( :cry1: :brknhrt:

Like the two previous seasons, it appears that this nest serves as a feeder for the GHO in the area. Rachel did try to save her baby but with her left leg injury she was not quick enough to save Dion. Coincidence or not, Rachel was injured while her cubs were ringed and she had to flee her nest, hence her possible encounter with an intruder bald eagle or osprey.
RIP little Dion ! Halley, you must be strong for two now :rh: . :luck: against the GHO :luck: .

All the pics are from the Hog Island Osprey - Steve & Rachel FB page. Thanks to them.

Investigation revealed the mature bald eagle was shoot. :( :cry1: :brknhrt:

This is how the stupidity, the cowardice and the inhumanity of some people are expressed ... nothing more to add.
