Re: Baby Bald Eagle Camera !

I agree. Nothing much new to report today. They are tentatively scheduling surgery on D20, to repair the wing, tomorrow.
It's been getting stronger and has been reported as "feisty". Which is a good thing. Nothing to report on the other two.
I will worry about them until I know they can fly, and get back up in the tree's where they belong.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

D20 is going in for surgery on it's injured wing today. (((((((D20)))))))
D19, with the transmitter, was seen in a tree, about 2/3 of a mile from the nest. Great news, it's getting off the ground now.
D18 was still hanging around the mulch pile. Which is what it was on in that last picture series. "Bob" tried to feed it, but it
seemed distracted, and took off towards the nest tree, but only got as far as the corn field. Bob is still keeping an eye on it.
It seems they are making progress, but still not flying well.

Just posted about 15 minutes ago, on the RRP FaceBook page;
From Kay Neumann, Director at S.O.A.R.;
"The juvenile eagle is out of surgery. It was not an easy surgery, because there was not much bone to connect to on the
shoulder end of the humerus. (Versus a break in the middle of the bone.) Dr. Dirks got the pin in, and the wing is wrapped,
and he has woken up from the anesthesia. So far, so good."


Sending D20 some recovery vibes. (((((((D20))))))) He now begins the long process of rehabilitation.
For what it's worth, we would rather the eagle had never needed to be rescued.
But it definitely wouldn't have survived without help.

There was a long report from Bob today, but I can't copy and paste anything, so I'm just going to give you the short version.

D20, is still recovering, and doing well. D19, now sometimes referred to as EWT or "eagle with transmitter" was found
this morning on the ground, apparently weakened from flight, and having got caught near a fence it couldn't get past.
Bob thought it was appropriate to help again, so they put a hood on it, and took it to where the other juvenile has been
staying. Near the city mulch piles, near the fish hatchery. (Which is where the one series of photos were taken.)
Bob attempted to release it near the other juvenile. Mom and dad were both seen near as well. So Bob provided some food.
Some defrosted quail, and a few trout. D19 ate 3 trout right away, and dad brought one of the quail to D18 which it ate
immediately. The two juveniles were reunited, and did spend a little time together, before retreating to their independent
mulch piles. At least they are off the ground. Near each other, and mom and dad are nearby, and helping with feeding. And
the city wont open the gate to that area until wednesday.
And the latest report posted at 2:30 Central, has both eagles now sharing the same mulch pile. And dad has been seen
bringing more food. That is a really good sign. Every day seems to bring some better news, which is what we need to hear.

No photo's today, but the two juvenile eagles, D18, and D19, are still together, and hanging out on, or near the mulch pile.
It looks like they are staying in a tree nearby, and go to the mulch pile in the day, and wait for food drops. And mom and dad
have been bringing them food. The mulch pile has become their substitute nest. Unfortunately, no cameras.

The established pattern has been holding up. They stay in the trees at night, and use the mulch pile as "nest" during the day.
Mom and dad have both been feeding them regularly, and they both have been seen flying.
From 6/30/14

D19, is being renamed D4. Because it's the fourth Decorah eagle to have a transmitter attached. It's kind of confusing,
so they have been referring to them as EWT, (eagle with transmitter) and EWOT, (eagle with-out transmitter.)

D20 is doing well. Still not eating on it's own, but they say that's ok, because they need to keep it on antibiotics.
And it's easier if they feed it themselves. 2 to 3 more weeks of healing before the next XRay.
