Not all clear at Ft St Vrain

April 18, 2015 2 Comments

I have pulled the All Clear post.  I am told that part of the deceased chick is still visible.  I missed it, but out of an abundance of caution, I will leave up the Critical watch for now.  So sorry.

Critical Watch Alert – sad loss of an eaglet at Ft St Vrain

April 17, 2015 13 Comments

Sadly, it looks like we have lost one of the eaglets at Ft St Vrain.  The other eaglet seems to be doing hanging in and was seen eating and active earlier. The weather has just been brutal and the parents have been heroic in protecting both eaglets.  But it appears that it wasn’t enough.  This is just so hard.  Sometimes it feels like all I am reporting is this sad stuff.  sigh.   Thankfully there are lots of thriving nests that are a joy to watch too.  As we always say, it is nature and it is real.  Some days more real than we’d like than others.  Sorry for the editorializing, not the news I wanted to report on my bday – or any other day really.   Critical watch alert since the perished eaglet is visible in the nest bowl area.

Critical Watch Alert – loss of smallest chick at NCTC

April 6, 2015 7 Comments

I am sad to report that the smallest chick at the NCTC Shepherdstown nest has died.  The information I have seen is that it ended up caught under a fish brought in by a parent as well as the parent holding the fish down and was unable to free itself.  Very hard for those who were watching the nest at the time and many hugs to those who love and follow this nest.  Watch Alert is because the perished little one is visible on the nest at this time.

Hatch at the Miles City Montana nest!

April 6, 2015 2 Comments

Not sure exactly when this little one hatched, I’ve been checking the past few days, so I suspect just in the last day or so, but cutie sure is there now and at the moment getting some food.  I also don’t know if there was more than one egg, so don’t know if we’ll see more hatches.  Will just have to wait and see.  A snowy day at the nest today.  Link to cam: http://53431558b81c6.click2stream.com/
