Sad loss of 5 day old chick at the RF nest

It appears that Liberty, the older of the two chicks at the RF nest did not survive the cold night.   From the info I received (thanks MsO), Liberty was eating well yesterday, the cam went down for a few hours and when it came back up, Liberty was no longer with us.   Unknown whether Liberty was affected by the cold or some other innate physical problem or both.   This leaves little 3 day old eaglet  Justice as the lone chick at this nest.  Pulling hard for Justice!    Links to cam:  on Livestream (w/chat) or on Youtube

  1. I am so sorry to hear this! It is so hard to hear of the loss of eggs and the deaths of eaglets for me and I’m sure many others. I can’t even imagine how hard it must be for you, Twizz, to report all of the sad news! Thank you so much for keeping us informed. You are much appreciated!

  2. Darn this cold weather!! I’m so sad. Poor little Liberty. It sounds like she was eating one minute and gone the next. These magnificent BE struggle with the elements everyday. Thoughts and prayers are now with Justice. Thanks, Twizz.
