Laniebelle, your local eagle pics are wonderful.
I have meant to tell you that for a while.

Neighbors keep watch over eaglets that fell from their nest in Sequim
Two baby eagles are back home after falling from their nest thanks to a group of neighbors in Sequim.

SEQUIM, Wash. — A pair of errant eaglets are under the watchful eyes of neighbors in Sequim.

The birds fell from their nest and could've easily died. But thanks to a curious dog, some concerned animal lovers, and a whole lot of luck they're back in the nest.

Kathy Pitts was out walking her dog last week when she was stopped in her tracks.

"All of a sudden he stopped would not move," Pitts explained. "I looked over and saw one of the babies."

It turns out her Shih Tzu named Sebastian is more of a bird dog. Sebastian had discovered the two baby eagles under a bush along the side of the street.

They had apparently fallen from their nest and somehow ended up about 50-feet away. The eaglets were up an embankment and across a frequently traveled road.

"It seems like mission impossible for them," Pitts said.

That's an understatement considering the birds are still so young they can't walk, let alone fly. Which raises the question, how did the eaglets cross the road?

"That's the million-dollar question," said raptor expert Jaye Moore with Central Valley Animal Rescue. "I don't know if they fell or got grabbed and taken out of there."

For Moore, the more pressing question was how to get the babies back in their nest.

"This was a unique situation," she said.

Despite their fall, the birds were in good shape.

Moore called on Casey Balch with Pacific Northwest Tree Service for help. She was able to place the birds in a duffel bag while Balch climbed the tree and brought them back home.

It's tricky work, especially with a pair of protective parents helicoptering.

"Mom and dad were circling around," said Balch. "At one point I saw mom sitting in one of the fir trees directly behind us, just keeping an eye on everything."

Photographer Keith Ross captured the rescue with his lens.

On Thursday, mom could be seen feeding her babies while dad was keeping watch from his nearby perch.

It has become a neighborhood watch of sorts, with everyone keeping an eye out for falling feathers until the helpless birds are ready to fly from the nest on their own.

"All these people out here are watching daily and reporting to us daily," Moore said. "They tell us the chicks are still in the nest. They're having crab, today, or salmon. They keep watch and let us know our efforts paid off."

You're welcome Lanie,
D33 branched also yesterday but the bad news is about D32 after his branch he went to others branches, other tree? maybe and a moment he left a branch and seemed to fly down but where …. ? he was heard but not found yet before the night.

RRP Is Searching for D32

D32 branched earlier today and left the tree entirely this evening. This evening D32 took flight again from the Skywalk branch and, while we don't know if this was a purposeful flight or an unintentional fledge, we immediately took action to assess the situation on the ground. No other information is available at this time, but we will provide an update here, on our website, and at explore.org when we learn anything.

We understand that everyone is concerned about D32, but it is imperative that everyone observe federal regulations regarding Bald Eagles and Bald Eagle nests. RRP will continue to assess and monitor the situation. For the sake of the eagles, everyone needs to minimize stress to parents and eaglets, in the nest or not, while we figure out what happened and how it should be handled.

Thank you so much for watching, for caring, and for helping to keep our eagles safe! We'll post as soon as we know anything! D32 is 61 days old today, an age at which eaglets have been recorded leaving the nest and (eventually) successfully fledging. Given the chance, which is an extremely important reason to give the eagles space right now, Mom and DM2 will find and care for D32.

Sunnybird, about Lafayette from wiki...
"La Fayette, nous voilà !" WW1
On July 4, 1917, Stanton visited the tomb of French Revolution and American Revolution hero Marquis de Lafayette and (according to Pershing) said, "Lafayette, we are here!" to honor the nobleman's assistance during the Revolutionary War and assure the French people that the people of the United States would aid them in World War I. The famous quote is often misattributed to Pershing.[6]
In context, he said:
America has joined forces with the Allied Powers, and what we have of blood and treasure are yours. Therefore it is that with loving pride we drape the colors in tribute of respect to this citizen of your great republic. And here and now, in the presence of the illustrious dead, we pledge our hearts and our honor in carrying this war to a successful issue. Lafayette, we are here.

Announcement
Observers Wanted
Several of our regular observers at Surrey Reserve are not going to be able to be online much from now through Monday, and we could really use some help posting.

The eaglets Dee and Ess are almost 8 weeks old and are learning to grab food from each other and mantle - and of course flap their growing wings - they really are wonderful to watch!

Dee is older by a day and a half and has a solid black tail; Ess's tail has white at the tips, which is about the only way I can tell them apart, so I hope Ess doesn't grow out of that. If anyone notices other differences that will help us know who is who, please share them on the thread!

D33 fell from her branch yesterday.
the good news is that she was found, uninjured but underweight so she was taken to SOAR for evaluation.

The bad news is that D32 couldn't be spotted.
Here is RRP full report:

Update on Decorah Eagles D32 & D33

It's been a pretty frantic 24 hours anxiously awaiting news in the search for D32 who flew off the Skywalk branch about 6:03PM CT last evening, and even more stressful when sibling D33 fell off the Skywalk in nearly the same place about 2:39PM CT this afternoon.

The search team headed out early this morning led by RRP Board Director and eagle biologist Brett Mandernack and wildlife assistant Ryan Schmitz. Both quickly got to work and searched a boxed area from the bridge to about 0.5 miles upstream past the nest and were unable to locate D32 or even get a vocalization. They also watched Both Mom and DM2 carefully, looking for clues in flight paths hoping one of the parents would lead them to a spot where they might have been caring for D32. There was no luck on locating the eaglet, but RRP is putting plans in place to continue on with a search again tomorrow and will monitor the parents travels more closely.

D33 had been exploring the Skywalk branch since yesterday, not branching yet, but carefully and skillfully had walked up to perch and look about, and ventured a bit further with each exploration and both DM2 and Mom kept the eaglet company perched nearby or in the nest. This afternoon D33 climbed up to about the same spot as D32 had when she/he lost its footing and fell. Within about 15 minutes RRP was notified by Iowa DNR that D33 was located, retrieved, and was taken to the Decorah Fish Hatchery for a visual inspection. It was determined that she/he was a bit underweight, but no other obvious injuries were noted. It was decided to transport the eaglet to S.O.A.R. (Saving Our Avian Resources) where D33 would be under skilled veterinary and rehab care to be evaluated and stabilized. We will have no further information about D33's condition until such time that the veterinary exam is completed, and RRP will provide that information as soon as it is known.

We very much appreciate the many caring comments we have received on our Facebook page and will continue to update you on both D32 and D33 as soon as we know anything. For some of you, the wait has been excruciating (and for us too), but we respect that our incredible search team has put all its efforts into the painstaking process of gently moving in slow cautious steps in the dense and tall underbrush rather than stop every so often for a progress report … which had pretty much been no sighting all day.

We know that the gnats and black flies are worrisome to everyone and we cannot begin to answer if that may have been the impetus to any fledge, flight, or fall, and we ask you to please wait until we have more information after D33's evaluation ... otherwise, we would only be speculating … something that we don't like to do as a research site.

Lastly, we would like to thank you for your patience as we troubleshoot and try to stabilize our website and chat spaces. It is a priority for us to have those up and working as soon as possible, and we greatly appreciate your understanding and support. While we wait to resolve both eagle and technology issues we ask you to continue to be patient with each other, with us, and let's please all keep talons crossed for our beloved Decorah Eagle family and successful outcomes.

What a week in Decorah, at both nests. I think all three eaglets have been so bothered by the gnats that they have not acted in the normal manner of branching for awhile, getting their balance and coordination down, increasing how high they go in the tree, etc. The last few days have been unbelievable.

I believe that DN9 was spotted by the cam op on the ground. He appeared to be walking just fine in the cow pasture.

Now, let's hope they can spot D32.

Talons crossed!

From FB D33

~ D33 arrives at SOAR ~
The hatch-year (HY19) bald eagle from the nest near the Decorah Fish Hatchery and famous from the Raptor Resource Project nest camera tumbled to the ground under the nest on 5 June. Hatchery staff were alerted and the juvenile was safely retrieved and taken to the hatchery.
Black fly bites on the side of D33's head. Admitted to SOAR 5 June 2019.
Also on 5 June, this eaglet began the journey to SOAR for evaluation and any treatment needed. During transfer to SOAR Executive Director, Kay Neumann, she provided an initial assessment. The eaglet has numerous bites near the eyes and nostrils (nares) and on the back of the head from buffalo gnats (AKA blackfly). These bites have left behind bloody scabs and left this eagle thin, anemic, and bit dehydrated. Kay could feel no fractures or swelling in the legs and wings. Bonus.
Kay also noted before she even picked up the juvenile that the tail and wing feathers were not long enough for this bird to fledge. Look at the photo included of the inside of the left wing. You can still see primary (flight) feathers encased in the sheath.
A view of the inside of D33's left wing. Flight feathers still have growing to do

D33 is interested in food and ate 1/2 a quail on the ride to SOAR. More food and water was offered once in ICU. Pieces of beef heart are on the menu this evening. The heart muscle is high in iron to help combat the anemia.
We know that many, many, many people are concerned for this eagle's welfare. As are we.


The abundance of blackfly / buffalo gnats is unfortunate, but part of the cycle of life. Wetland habitat improvement and development would provide quality environments for the blackfly natural predators - dragon and damselflies! **Watch for a separate post about the black fly!
As updates on D33 become available, those will be shared. Please understand that we have over 30 hatch-year raptors admitted already this year, in addition to other adult raptors needing care.

Update from the Stewards:
Ed Button, District Manager, Savanna, IL District USFWS and Nate Williams, Wildlife Refuge Specialist met us at the nest area within twenty minutes of E3 going over the nest. Larry and I were scanning with binoculars while the guys were getting on waders and considering trying to work their way back. We spotted a truck with Bass boat in tow and asked Ed if it might be better to seek their assistance. :-) Huge THANK YOU to Bass fishermen Dr. Robert Merkin (a veterinarian) and Don May (Don heard about the two males and a female on the news). Doc took Ed and Nate right in under the nest tree where they spotted E3. E3 was wet indicating he made it down to the water but had already worked his way up six or eight feet. Like a normal Eagle he had his wings hanging out to dry. The eaglet will be fed by the adults - Starr is no stranger to an early albeit in this case unintended fledge. The eaglet has better skills and instincts than many gave him credit for. If he made six to eight feet up out of the water in such short time, he could indeed make an eventual return to the nest. HUGE THANK YOU TO ED, NATE, LARRY, DON and DOC! Bonnie


Way to go, Peace! You can do it! And as mentioned, Starr and the Valors are not strangers to an early fledge (uintended or accidential or fludge). So they got this!

A Couple of Updates from Decorah North: From Donna Lucero on FB

#1) 'Morning viewers! As you can see from the featured post, RRP will be doing a welfare check on DN9. :-) DN9 certainly did not appear to be in any distress when seen yesterday. She/he was active, alert, ready to protect herself from the humans and the cows. Both parents are right in the area where we last caught sight of her and they too were ready to defend her against any and all issues. IF she/he is near the creek it's a great thing for her to be able to get drinks and stay hydrated, and the parents won't have to go far with a fish to give to her!
Until we hear more from RRP about DN9's status, it would be nice to try to stay positive and not continue to imagine and predict the worst. Just because she/he is on the ground is no reason for her to need to be rescued. It is not at all unusual for newly fledged eaglets to be stranded on the ground or near the ground for a while. And we have no idea if she/he has been negatively affected by the black fly enough to warrant attention. All the wildlife, including the adult eagles, is being affected and they seem to come through and survive.

#2) Since DN9 fell from the nest tree this morning, we have been monitoring from the cams and from the ground. Our eaglet spent much of the day beneath the nest tree and in the pasture. DN9 doesn't appear to have injured its wings or legs and is mobile, although it hasn't flown since reaching the ground. DNF and Mr. North are perched nearby and actively defending DN9.

At this point we do not know to what extent flies have affected DN9 or if its health has been significantly impacted. David Kester will be following up tomorrow morning. He is our master bander and has a great deal of experience handling and assessing birds of prey.

DN9 is now on h/h way to SOAR with symptoms similar to D33. Very thankful that these two will be getting the best care. Strong prayers that D32 will be found soon & also receive any needed care. Hoping with all my heart for a positive outcome for all.

What a week !!

:announce:

D32 HAS BEEN FOUND !!!

Update: Decorah Hatchery Nest eaglet D32

D32 was located yesterday evening in Trout Run Creek by a couple of local residents. The eagle was located tucked in along a bank downstream from the Decorah Hatchery nest. It was in rough shape, and the residents informed the DNR Hatchery personnel, who then retrieved it from the creek, and placed him/her in a “turkey box”, shown in the picture attached here. The hatchery staff notified RRP, and we quickly set a plan in motion to get D32 the care it needed. Our Bald Eagle expert and board member Brett Mandernack, and our Vice President Laura Johnson, a veterinarian doctor specializing in raptor care, were consulted quickly, and a plan was enacted to get D32 to Laura, about an hour away, for immediate assessment and care.

Once transferred to Laura, D32 was found to be weak, a bit hypothermic, underweight, and showed signs of anemia with many black fly bites. Laura administered fluids and electrolytes upon arrival and repeated the treatments overnight. This morning, Laura was able to get D32 to eat some venison dipped in electrolytes and will continue to try to feed D32 every few hours.

Laura will continue to monitor and care for D32 while we await further updates. When we have new information, we will share that with you, but please understand that the care of the eagles comes first and we may not have continuous updates.

We would like to thank the local residents who found D32 and acted quickly to get help, everyone at RRP working nonstop to search for, capture, transport and help the eagles in every way possible, and BIG THANKS to the Decorah Chuck Gipp Fish Hatchery staff and management for their continued support of our recent bald eagle monitoring and recovery efforts and the wildlife surrounding them.

Prayers for a complete recovery for all

D32 HAS BEEN FOUND !!!

Update: Decorah Hatchery Nest eaglet D32

D32 was located yesterday evening in Trout Run Creek by a couple of local residents. The eagle was located tucked in along a bank downstream from the Decorah Hatchery nest. It was in rough shape, and the residents informed the DNR Hatchery personnel, who then retrieved it from the creek, and placed him/her in a “turkey box”, shown in the picture attached here. The hatchery staff notified RRP, and we quickly set a plan in motion to get D32 the care it needed. Our Bald Eagle expert and board member Brett Mandernack, and our Vice President Laura Johnson, a veterinarian doctor specializing in raptor care, were consulted quickly, and a plan was enacted to get D32 to Laura, about an hour away, for immediate assessment and care.

Once transferred to Laura, D32 was found to be weak, a bit hypothermic, underweight, and showed signs of anemia with many black fly bites. Laura administered fluids and electrolytes upon arrival and repeated the treatments overnight. This morning, Laura was able to get D32 to eat some venison dipped in electrolytes and will continue to try to feed D32 every few hours.

Laura will continue to monitor and care for D32 while we await further updates. When we have new information, we will share that with you, but please understand that the care of the eagles comes first and we may not have continuous updates.

It is true Philippe, but SOAR says that they are already taking care of at least 30 Hatch Year '19 babies, so I assume that includes others (not on cams) who are suffering the same conditions. Unfortunately, we cannot help them all, but those we can.... we must.

Actually maggots are used in medicine to clean wounds. Again a part of the cleaing process. They only gravitate to dead material not living flesh. But these eagles don't do medicine and hospitals. And sticks in the nest are good for simba. They can help him to balance before he takes flight and lives on brances much of the time. Now for me maggots and flies are not welcome in my house. I clean with products bought. I don't need sticks to balance on. I have a much longer learning time than simba does. Really everything is ok here.

Thanks, everyone, for the various updates about the 3 eaglets from Decorah. They are all in great hands at SOAR. Considering the condition they all were in (anemia, underweight, bites from the gnats, dehydrated), it may be fortuitous that they all left the nest early. Hopefully, now they will all be able to get the help they need and be able to be released in the future.

I do feel bad for both sets of eaglet parents. They must be missing their offspring. Such sadness in Decorah this season.
