Critical Watch Alert – Minnesota DNR – loss of an eaglet

March 6, 2015 5 Comments

As just reported, the smallest eaglet at the Minnesota DNR nest has died. I am doing a critical watch alert due to the fact that some may not want to watch as the perished eaglet is disposed of at the nest.  There are a few possibilities.  It could simply be absorbed into the nesting material, the parents may feed it to the remaining eaglets, or it may be removed from the nest.  At the moment, the little one is in the bottom of the nest bowl, essentially under the two that remain.  The little one is not very easy to see, but it is visible (although not in the picture I have posted here).  I will post an “all-clear” once it has been resolved.   My condolences to the many who watch and love this nest.

Sad loss of the littlest eaglet at the Minnesota DNR nest

March 6, 2015 7 Comments

I am sad to report that the smallest eaglet at the Minnesota DNR nest has died.  You may decide that you do not want to watch for the next day or so as things unfold with potential disposal of the eaglet by the parents.  Will do a Critical Watch Alert shortly with more information.  I am just watching a feeding now and am glad to see that the remaining two are both getting fed well, with #2 getting food even with some bonking from #1

wow! a list of hundreds of live bird webcams, Bald Eagles plus many other species!

March 3, 2015 5 Comments

I just ran across this website and had to share! http://www.viewbirds.com/ It has an amazing list of bird webcams from all over the world!  The eagle section of the list is pretty up to date,  and there are a bunch of eagles in other parts of the world listed as well as many, many other species (as you know I only try and keep up with news for North American eaglecams, which keeps me plenty busy enough LOL)    The page shows a last update of last week.  I mention that because there are lots of sites out there of ‘cam’ links that get started and then fade off in being updated.    It looks like there are some really amazing cams on the list!  I’m in trouble now! LOL

Second and Third hatches complete at Minnesota DNR!

March 2, 2015 2 Comments

Whew! I’ve always heard that hatches can take up to 48 hours, but little #2 at this nest, is the first I’ve seen that really did take that long and maybe a little bit longer.  Looking very strong and grown up this morning after finally exiting the shell overnight.  Little #3 is on schedule, newly hatched and looking great!  Big thanks to Joy and Ginger for the heads up about the hatches!  Congrats to all who love and watch this nest!  Link to cam: http://www.webcams.dnr.state.mn.us/eagle/

Sad loss of the remaining eaglet at the Blackwater Refuge nest

March 1, 2015 11 Comments

I am so very sorry to report the sudden loss of the remaining eaglet at the Blackwater nest.  After the death of the smaller eaglet a week ago, the remaining eaglet seemed to be thriving and was seen active and eating early this afternoon.   Unfortunately a later view showed the deceased eaglet laying outside the nest bowl.  It is unknown what happened.

First egg arrives at the new Hancock Delta 3 eaglecam nest!

March 1, 2015

Yippee, the first egg of the season has arrived at the Hancock Wildlife Foundation nests and it has arrived at their newest eaglecam called Delta 3!   According to the Hancock Wildlife website, the pair raised two eaglets at this nest in each of the past two years, with the cam installed this year.  Lots of great info about the nest on the Hancock forum here:  http://www.hancockwildlife.org/forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=703211&lastpost=true#745250   And here is a link to the cams: http://www.hancockwildlife.org/index.php?topic=Delta3#delta3east

Yoohoo! The first egg has arrived at MN Bound!  Good timing, the cam has only been up for a few days and voila we have an egg!  Big congrats to all who love and follow this nest!!  I still have a picture up on the wall of little Harmon being rescued a few seasons ago in 2012. “Hey Buddy” still gives me chills.  Link to cam: http://www.ustream.tv/mneaglecam
