Thank you, Philippe - that is a lovely remembrance for Romeo - and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll be seeing Samson and his lady Gabrielle for many years to come.

I made an update the last september 23 ( viewtopic.php?p=135962#p135962 ) but Romeo, Dad from NEFL nest deserves a lot better.

Rip 2018

MIA December 26 - NEFL, Florida, Dad Romeo

creation by VictoriaThebeautifulcreationbyVictoria.jpg
One hour and a half before the hatch. Merci Bev !screenshot_44.jpg
Last time seen in the nest. Merci Bev ! screenshot_01.jpg

in mid-October, the time has finally come to greet Romeo one last time, father of so many marvelous eaglets, husband and lover so faithful to his tender and irreplaceable Juliet.

Alone since December 17, 2018 after the sudden disappearance of his beloved Juliet, he remained to take care of his two eggs until the end releasing his supervision only to feed and survive to give them a chance in life.
Fate did not see it that way. December 25, 2018, Christmas day, just before his little NE20 came into the world, Romeo went fishing and on his return he found an empty shell. Only some have witnessed the horror unfolded before their eyes. Even the non viable egg was looted.

The next day for the last time Romeo flew away. Everyone (so do I) likes to believe that he has gone back to his "Belle" and that they live happily and benevolently towards their successors on this side of life or can be on the other but gathered for eternity …

A glimpse of history, the cherry on the cake, December 28, 2018 an unexpected visit of an eagle, adult, who had already been there the previous summer. The famous Samson, son of Romeo and Juliet who, this October 16, 2019, day that I write his words prepares his nest (of birth) with Gabrielle and who knows will also be at the head of a numerous descendants,God willing, those of Romeo and Juliet of the fact. The circle is complete.

Without Past, there is no Future !

To all of you, Fly Free, Fly High with always a Full Crop and don't forget all of you,
You will never be alone, You will live for the Eternity in our Heart.

Iona, JudyB, Carolyn, Bev, … you are all welcome !
Although it was very hard to go back to this sad story, for the memory of Romeo and his absence so sudden and incomprehensible, I had to do it. :(

I think of Romeo and Juliet often. Victoria's photos and words were lovely. Philjo, thank you for the very special words in memory of that beautiful couple who brought so much delight to so many of us for so many years. It is consoling a little bit that their son, Samson, found his nest again, and hopefully he and Gabrielle will carry on the legacy that Juliet and Romeo started.

Rip 2019

+ October 28 - 367 Collins Melbourne, AUS : Falconet Younger, the little male of the siblings.

The last 2 days he acted like his siblings last year (trichomonasis) and the year before, most of the time alone, up facing toward the wall, not interested by food, difficulties to breath, often seen with opened beak, and yesterday i noticed also difficulties to open one eye like if it was stuck. I'm pleased he spent his last moment among his siblings ans seemed to leave us peacefully.
Younger was 27 days old :( :cry1: :brknhrt:

Rip 2019

MIA September 29 - Smola - Norway. White Tail Eagle Baroness Barefoot

EPILOGUE
02-27-2020 The remains of baroness barefoot were found not far from the nest. she probably died in a territorial fight shortly after she was last seen - September 2019.
Sensitive people, be careful with the photos. https://www.streambird.no/post/baronessen-funnet-død

Text by Pascale.

Baroness Barefoot ~ ??? - autumn 2019. Baroness and her mate Baron Blue took over Smola nest in 2010.
Since then they have had many offsprings on streaming.
Jeppe and Nille, 2015 - Storm and Stille (died on nest) 2016 - Solo, 2017 - Elida, 2018 - Elle and Melle, 2019.

She has proven during all those years her incredible motherhood qualities, she loved incubating, brooding and cuddling her youngsters. despite a bad leg injury, she took care of her chicks and hunt and fish very frequently. She was also a fierce defender of her nest, being the "heavy artillery" when needed. I remember her spending time with Elida, imprinting her with such love and care.

After the last season, we saw her a few times, and then not anymore since end of September. on Friday, October 25th, Baron blue, her mate, came to the nest with a young female. We think baroness was... is... older than her mate. maybe she went sick, injured, or involved in a fight with an intruder. Her wonderful heritage passed through all her offsprings.
We miss her massive silhouette, adorable face and her limping.


We won't forget you, :rh: Baroness Barefoot :rh:

Last letter to Baroness sent to me by Pascale :huggie:

Baroness Barefoot, Female White Tailed Eagle, MIA - Autumn 2019. Smola, Norway

I remember...
May 2017
I was still mourning e9 departure when I found a video from Lady Hawk showing a big, very big, huge beige eagle feeding a very very tiny white little thing.
https://youtu.be/2PC2nPRtrVg.

I was in awe, in front of this beautiful eagle, and then, I went to the page of this nest in Norway, and... I was hooked.

Solo, baron and baroness entered my life.

I learned many things about this nest, that baron and baroness had several offsprings during these last years, lost a chick in the nest, that this Mom had a limp due to an injury to her leg.
Solo grew up beautifully, fledged, and stayed 9 months 1/2 in the nest area !
The following year, one eaglet hatched too. A big, beautiful female, called Elida. Being alone, she had also all the attention of her parents, especially her mother. The long hours Baroness spent cuddling her, imprinting her daughter with such love and care, are something I will always remember.
Elida fledged and stayed "only" 5 months and a half in the nest area.
Then, in 2019, we had two chicks hatched. Elle and Melle arrived in a disturbed nest. Lots of sibling rivalry, food issues, and sometimes, Baroness seemed to loose her patience, or maybe, she felt it was too much to deal with. They finally succeeded in raising these two adorable eaglets, the huge and strong Elle, her mother's portrait, and the "petite" and feisty Melle ! When Elle and Melle finally fledged, coming more or less to the nest, baroness came home too, often, and then less often...
On 20th of September, she was seen for the last time on cameras.
Baron didn't come back very often either.
We were waiting, a bit anxiously, but we didn't worry. After all, after raising two eaglets, they deserved a nice rest !
But on October 25th evening, we saw both coming home. We were so happy !
Oh wait… This female on the nest is a bit smaller than Baroness... She doesn't limp... she has brown eyes !!! It wasn't baroness.
Baron, bringing a new female. This meant a lot. Baroness would never have accepted a female intruder. Even Baron, wouldn't have accepted this.
It meant a lot.
Baroness was probably gone. Or dead. Baron had met this beautiful female a while ago, to allow her to visit the nest, and stay for the night...
Baroness,
I remember you, such a beautiful female eagle, you, a loving mother and partner, the way you used to leave the nest to chase intruders, the "heavy artillery", when you proudly came back to the nest with fish or prey. The tender pair you made with your handsome mate, Baron blue...
Of course, we wish baron the best now, to find a loving, beautiful female and have other offsprings. He is still young - 15 years old.

But your beautiful face, magestic stature, huge wingspan, the way you cared and loved your babies and mate, are something we can not forget. We know that now, wherever you are, you will protect and love Baron future offsprings.


We love you, and we miss you, our beloved :rh: Smola Queen :rh:

Your memorial for Baroness is outstanding Philjo. And...did you get me hooked on a nest I did not know? When time, I'll look at it. I also wish well to the new young lady and mate....life goes on.

They cannot stay forever, so they etch into our hearts.
Before the cameras we might not have known, and now we do....
A blessing that comes around to show us reliance, love, adoration and
persistence.

Along with that comes the knowledge of nothing lasting forever,
revel in it, roll in it like the dog does in the grass, smile,
knowing it is a season and that is reason enough to go and know it's....
wonderful.

Pascale and Philjo....I am so grateful my words could make a difference in your day. It's a joy to be able to see these birds and their lives unfold (along with their wings :))......

Wings unfolded, off for flight,
my oh my, what a sight!

We watch with rapture, seeing them go,
and wondering next when they will show.

+ November 5 - Sydney Olympic Park, AUS : Sea Eaglet SE23, the older one.

Two days after pushing a sigh of relief, we had finally found SE23 and for the first time after the fledge SE23 Joined all the Family near the river....
But today it is is with his siblings, SE19 and SE22 that SE23 finds himself as his body was found lifeless.

Peace to your wonderful soul SE23. You did not deserve these criticisms caused by your behavior with your young sibling SE24 as now you have made her/him becoming stronger and s/he will have more luck in her/his life thanks to you.
Now they certainly regret it for sure but I too you can be sure of that.
You will fly with SE24 all her/his life long and you'll protect her/him as SE22 is doing for SE21.
Rest in peace my feathered friend. :dunno: :( :cry1: :cryhanky: :brknhrt:

Update 2019-11-06 By Sea Eagle Cam Facebook page:
I have received a verbal report from Taronga Wildlife Hospital about our dead juvenile, which we presume is SE23. She had no injuries, and no sign of disease like Trichomoniasis or Beak and Feather Disease. She was however very thin with no substantial food in her stomach. So in spite of our hopes,
she was not apparently being fed sufficiently by her parents.
It is heartwarming though to see that her sibling SE24 is thriving down on the river with the adults.

MIA November 23 - Port-Lincoln, AUS : the 64 days old osplet Star, the younger of two.

Star was fledging/hovering during a strong wind period. Star made some maneuvers, landings and at a time we saw its shadow disapearing…. Nobody was able to see Star after the last passage it made.

MIA November 17-25 - Orange, AUS : the 42 to 52 days old female falconet Gaia, the older of two.

Gaia, last time seen nov 17 and may be last time heard nov 25. She was a young fledger (Nov 16) the last pics where we saw her (nov 17) when she joins her young sibling, Pluto a male who flew some days before her.
On the ground the Orange's team made numerous searches but nothing was found.

Rest in peace wherever you are Gaia. Like all other young feathered thing before you, you didn't deserve what happened to you. :dunno: :( :cry1: :brknhrt:

:ty: to Holly Parson for the video she made covering the short life of Gaia…

16.Nov.2019 - Gaia's Fledge Day - Orange, Australia Peregrines

Gaia fledged early this morning, hooray! But it is sad to see her leave the scrape... 💔 This video includes still photos of her development, as we celebrate her graduation.

Gaia fledged early this morning, hooray! But it is sad to see her leave the scrape... 💔 This video includes still photos of her development, as we celebrate her graduation.

the two first pics are from Holly's video, The last one is the last photo of Gaia taken by Cilla Kinross. :ty: Cilla and Holly :huggie:

25.Nov.2019 - Gaia calls, Pluto answers - Orange, Australia Peregrines
Listen closely to catch Gaia calling in the distance. Pluto hears her while he is near the rocks, and then goes to the ledge. He calls out and looks up toward the roof. Perhaps she was roosting up there? Gaia hasn't returned to the nest box since she fledged, so it is good to hear that she is still around!

+ January 15 - Fort Myers, Fla : Eaglet E14, Harriet's and M15's beloved chick. 1/3

E14: December 19, 2019 (12.03 PM) --- January 15, 2020 (after 01h30). (26 do + 13h27')

January 15, 2010 shortly after 1:30 am an Angel spread his wings and flew away.

My dear parents, I'm leaving, I love you, but I'm leaving, You will have no more children this evening.
I'm not running away. I fly. Understand, I'm flying. Part of a french song. Singer was Michel Sardou.

In my wildest nightmares, I never imagined that the first bird to which I will pay tribute this year would be a bald eagle from Fort Myers and SWFEC in particular. And even worse than it is you, E14, my new "E9" always next to his Egbert. :cry1:

During the afternoon around 17h00 E14 was bleeding from the left side, left wing or between the left wing and the left leg, ???.
In fact a broken blood feather on the left wing. (Crow).

As the night arrived, it was enought warm in the nest but Harriet stayed with E14 all the night, first time after 2 or 3 nights alone.
I'm sure she already knew something bad was coming and she didn't want to let E14 facing alone against adversity.
Even M15 made a visit around 20h30. Then all seemed to be good event in the darknest of a cam without IR light.

After midnight, some chirpings, in fact cries, i'm sure now. E14 was losing her strenght, he ressented the cold now more and more all the time as his life was leaving his little body. In a last effort he crawled under Harriet his mother and his heat source, it was 01h30. I was able able to see her right talon all the rest of the night. E14 never moved after that.
E14 left us, leaving us alone abandoned ... :( :cry1: :cryhanky:


I'm sure without any doubt that Ozzie, E3, and E5 and many others had passed by and had taken E14 with them in the Light, the One that does not dazzle, the One that keeps warm and comforting, the One where one day we will find E14 with all our loved ones.

From above, E14, Take care of your Parents, siblings, E9 and don't forget to keep an eye on us too.
Au revoir mon Ami ! I :rh: so much and i will Always keep you in my :rh: . One day i hope, from all my heart, you will be there to welcome me :hug: in the same light where you are. See you in the future my little thin, beloved E14. I love you :huggie: :rh:

Poems by : (click on the name).
MinnaNH, Little angels with eagle wings / To fly high and watch over / The nests that we see / And the ones that we never / To soar high in human hearts / And bring peace in our pain / Fly free, little E14 / Reach for the heavens, fly through the rain / On your eagle wings so strong / Rejoice with those brave before you / You are our eagle guardian angel / The love you leave will see us through.
Carolyn, We cannot help what happens in the way of nature, / we can see, we can hope we can love, / that is our gift.
When there is a sad turn we still can see, / hope and love, and embrace what is, / knowing that in the future there will be.
Pascale, what is happening to me ? / I feel so weak.I feel cold. / Mom is here she's close to me. / I feel she worries. / I feel and hear thousands of voices / I see the lights / They say : hold on ! we love you. / I feel cold. / I feel my strength flowing away / I need to be strong ! I want to fly / One day. / Mom and dad I love you / Little Bro I love you. / Is it it ? / is it like that when you die ? / I feel peace. I feel love. / I feel... / I go.

E14 you were a beautiful, feisty, sweet ray of light. You were loved by so many and will be missed so much as well. Words are not enough. The days will get better and your light will always shine in our hearts. Fly high and soar free little one. WPBEgal

E14..what a joy to watch and how easily to love. From the moment of egg1 to the second you completely hatched and for 26 days, you imprinted our hearts with love. We watched with awe at your quickly emerging personality and rapid skill development. You were and will forever be special. I’ll miss watching you forever and love you for always, sweet E14.........BluSkye

what is happening to me ?
I feel so weak.I feel cold.
Mom is here she's close to me.
I feel she worries.
I feel and hear thousands of voices
I see the lights
They say : hold on ! we love you.
I feel cold.
I feel my strength flowing away
I need to be strong ! I want to fly
One day.
Mom and dad I love you
Little Bro I love you.

Is it it ?
is it like that when you die ?
I feel peace. I feel love.
I feel...
I go.

I wrote this too.
Little e14, « mon petit cœur » as I used to call you, between you and me.

I’ve been watching you since you were an egg, the new miracle happened. From tiny fluff head, you grew up, ate, ate, and ate again, faced the rain, faced the loss of your little sibling. You grew up, showing your wonderful personnality, chirping day and sometimes nights to have food or your parents attention, then going to rails, counting cars, moving materials, sticks, and… brooding eggbert, hugging him, sleeping on him.

How could we know, how could we guess that your time on earth would be so short ?!! You were so beautiful, so spunky and cute… You had these beautiful eyes, where mom and dad often reflected in…

Maybe it’s your little sibling who missed you too much. Maybe god, or whatever… who wanted to have you on his side. Or Ozzie. But it is not FAIR. It’s not RIGHT !

When I saw you bleeding, I begged everyone I could so you could be saved. Humans decide it wasn’t possible – I have my thoughts about that but nevertheless it is too late. I begged God, to keep you alive until morning comes.

Your chirping a few hours before you left haunts me. You knew that your injury was very wrong. Mom also knew it. She went down on your side. For the 1st time in 3 nights. She stayed on your side, sleeping. At 1 :30, you used your last strength to choose the last place. In front of mom… I was checking, hoping, praying, but… no move… Cold kept your little corpse. As daylight come we saw your Mom looking at you, and dad… it was so painful to see them, and you. Your mom kept you and did the thing eagles do, consume a part of your little body. Then, humans, the ones who couldn’t save you, came to the nest and took you and your sibling under the cries of Mom and Dad. To know what happened. I don’t care what happened. You’re not with us anymore and that’s the most important. I was crying with your parents.

When you hatched and I saw that you were alone, I thought about you as being e9 twin. You showed the same adorable personnality. Every time I check on you was pure fun, joy and mesmerising moments. I want to keep this image of you, with your unborn sibling, holding him. I took this scap as I imagined a letter this little eggbert had written to you, maybe one week before you passed away. I never… never… thought this will end like this.

I don’t want to talk about new babies for Harriet and M15. I don’t even want to know about other nests babies. I want to keep you in my memory and not think about anything else. You’re mon petit cœur forever.
