Eaglet Returned

The eaglet returned by yesterday afternoon another photographer passed on to me. Yeah ! This morning I did not feel like watching the eagles so I went elsewhere. Glad I did. I am lucky to live in an area blessed with wildlife…

Eaglet Missing

When I got to the eagles nest this morning one of the eaglets was missing. Normally they will be somewhere around on the ground. A large branch had broken off about midway of the nesting tree. The female eagle was perched nearby. The male flew in with a fish and the two eaglets in the nest ate it quickly. No other eaglet popped up in the nest. Continuing to look around the area I still could not locate the other eaglet. Later the female eagle flew down and perched on the blown down branch. It walked along the log stopping and looking down. There was something that looked like feathers behind the log where the adult was looking. I circled it in red in one of the pics. It could be the branch broke and the eaglet got hit with it? Probably will never know. The female eagle flew down from the broken branch and gathered grass flew back up on the broken branch then flew to the nest with the grass. Chased by a red winged blackbird and an Eastern Kingbird on the way. Here is hoping the missing eaglet will reappear on my next visit to the nest. But I expect something happened to it…

Interesting Morning

When I got to the eagles nest before sunrise two of the eaglets were out of the nest on branches. One pretty far out further than a hop would take it. When the male brought in a fish later the eaglet on the right had hopped back in the nest already. The eaglet that was further out on the branch on the left made a mistake and fly hopped to a lower branch. Then it took it about 45 mintutes of fly hopping to finally get up the nerve to fly back up to a higher branch. Finally flying up and getting wind blown back in to the nest. It took it about an hour to get back to the nest. The two eaglets in the nest by then had eaten there fill. Not sure if the last eaglet back to the nest got much of a meal or not. It was interesting watching the eaglet try and figure out how to get back to the nest. Or get the courage…
