Raptor Resource Project Decorah Eagle Cam

I was surfing the net and came across these 2 Bald Eagles who’s eggs just hatched, and thought it was worth re-posting.

    We lost one of our Tampa Bay Baby Eagles yesterday.

    There is a video at this link: http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/news/local/pinellas/eagle-death-under-investigation-04182011

    TIERRA VERDE – There’s a sad ending today to the story of the first baby eagle hatched on Tierra Verde since they started keeping records.

    Two weeks ago, our cameras were rolling as “Luna” took her first flight and made it back to the nest safely.

    But today the eagle died, just down the road from where she was born. One of the regulars who checked on the eagle family everyday saw her fly to the top of a light pole, then flutter to the ground and collapse.

    U.S. Fish and Wildlife will do a necropsy to determine the cause of death.

    Out of 45 eagles hatched this year in Pinellas County, this is the second young one to die.

    Mr. Ed Koons, Your pictures are great. I have been watching this pair redecorating their nest and each egg that was laid,and hatched.
    some funny moments ocured and they made me laugh. Mom getting mad at dad for accidentllt tossing new born baby outside of nest and freeted util mom came back and gave him several looks of disbelief. She got the eglet back in very tenderly. When the father does wrong he hangs his head in shame and at times she will yak and yak at him. This is a very loving pair and she is a devoted mom. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Good job Janet Wood

      Thanks Janet..

      They are so cute. I love watching them grow up, they get so big quick!

      Between doctors visits and getting our new cat situated i missed getting some photos yesterday. But will get back on track today.

      This is Picasso our new house guest. He is keeping our other cat Monday company. The two of them had a discussion at 03:00 that woke us up. I hope they have settled their dispute.. http://www.edkoon.org/album/thumbnails.php?album=63

    I have been busy with other commitments and have not been observing too much.

    A couple of days ago all three were in the nest, but didn’t see mom or dad. But one looked sick and was laying down. Now i just take a look and only see one eaglet left in the nest, and it looks to be sick. It’s laying down and shaking its head back and forth.

    I hope it makes it!

        hey Sheila, i watch these eagles’s everyday, and i thought something had happened to the third chick too, but all three showed up last night .I was really releived too. It has reallly been an exciting experience watching just about their every move, to see how they are raised and watching them take short flights. Cant wait until next year, to see the new baby chicks.

    First heard about this when the third egg was about to hatch. We have watched it every day since. Were so concerned that all three would be getting enough to eat every day. Saw the great aggitation of the parents one evening when a very loud noise (like a generator) came on. But we were glad to see that they finally accepted it.
    So, thanks so very much for giving us this wonderful experience, I think we learned quite alot about these remarkable birds and enjoyed this and will miss them.

    If you’re looking for the transmitter, I think I saw it to the left side of the blood on the nest under the grass or straw, or whatever it was. If she shed it, it makes me very happy!

      Please capture this bird and remove the remnants of the transmitter, if that is what I see. She appears very unhappy with what is around her neck. From my perspective, the whole transmitter thing has been a disaster. Thank you.

    does the light at night bother her and the little ones?? i would think they need some ‘downtime’ and darkness to rest and not live in a spotlight so to speak day and night.
