News from the Nests: Avon Lake, Standley Lake, Eaglet Peace and IWS West End

A recap of news from around the nests from the past day or so:

Both the Avon Lake and Standley Lake eaglecams are reporting their first egg arrived yesterday!

Some news regarding the eaglet “Peace” from the AEF NEFL nest.  Peace was rescued from the nest and is under wonderful care.  There hasn’t been any definitive diagnosis on what is wrong, but happily, he has been moved to a flight cage and they anticipate that they will be able to bring up a camera for us to watch his progress!  There is hope that he will be released.

At the IWS Channel Islands nests, unfortunately the equipment that powers the Catalina West End nest camera, just disappeared following the storms we had recently in CA.  The theory is that it fell from the cliffs in this very remote location.  So, this nest will not be online for the rest of the season.  They are reporting that the eagle pair are incubating though, which is great news!

Also, IWS has been able to bring up the Bald Canyon nest on stream, so that will be fun to watch!

First egg arrives at the Sandy Ridge Ohio eaglecam nest!

Big thanks to Carole for alerting me to the first egg at the Sandy Ridge nest and providing the screenshot!  It is so nice to see a new season of nesting on this eaglecam.  Link to cam:

News from the Nests: Third egg at Ft St Vrain and Second egg at Decorah North!

update: Pittsburgh Hays – after nest falls, a quick rebuild and new incubation in progress!

Just a quick update on the Pittsburgh Hays nest.  As most know, the tree with the nest fell down in a storm.  Ground reporters quickly saw evidence of the eagle pair building a new nest nearby and amazingly are now reporting that it looks like they are incubating an egg!   Also amazing, is that with the original webcam, they’ve been able to point to the area of the new nest and you can watch the activity!  Very cool stuff!  Link to cam:
