Re: Baby Bald Eagle Camera !

And another eagle is in the air! Less than an hour ago.



The two that fledged today, are most likely the oldest two.

Now the last one seems pretty lonely in the nest.

looks like we're down to one holdout, he'll be flying soon

I've never watched the activity much after they fledge, I wonder how long it will be before they leave their parents altogether ?

Some scary news out of Decorah today. A juvenile eagle was reported in the road, near where the nests are located.
One of the specialists from Raptor Research project, who is trained, and qualified to handle eagles, was dispatched to
the area. They found a juvenile eagle in the road, near the nests, and tried to capture it. It took off into the woods,
but they were able to catch it. It is now in the care of RRP. There has been no official identification made, but it is very
likely one of the recently fledged eagles. No word on injury. It was alive when they caught it, so that's good. But how
it is treated from here, as well as, whether or not it could be returned to the nest, remains to be determined. I'm hoping
for a full recovery, and return. I'll post any updates I get.

It's alive, and appears to be uninjured. They still aren't positive which eagle it is. They are leaning towards it being
either D19 or D20. One of the younger ones. It probably landed ok, but just didn't have the strength to fly yet.
They are feeding it, and will keep it overnight for observation. That's all they've said for now.
They did post this picture on their FB page.

Update from RRP's FaceBook page;
Raptor Resource Project
Update from Decorah: After watching the eaglet he held in his mews last night, Bob determined it could fly. He thought it might have been weak from a lack of food, so he fed it last night and this morning prior to release at the trout hatchery. He is asking people to stay away and not crowd it. He and a few volunteers will be watching to see whether Mom and Dad come down to feed. If not, he will provide trout and quail as needed. However, it would be best if Mom and Dad came down, so please don't crowd the eaglet.

Another Decorah fledgling was found this morning with a broken wing. It is on its way to Kay at SOAR for assessment and treatment, if possible. We will keep everyone posted.

We don't have ID's for either eaglet at this point.


Not the results we would like. (((Eagles)))
