Thanks to Namanu apau who has provided a video so we can now see what happened in the early morning hours of Sat, when E7 and E8 were knocked off the branches. You can watch the video here (but a caution, it is a bit tough to watch them go through the attack): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vEHV9g-nmc&feature=share
(pic above: E7 hanging out this morning)
There is no further confirmed info on the whereabouts of E8. Here is what was posted on the Southwest Florida Eaglecam Facebook page:
“There has been a lot of speculation over the last 24 hours about E8’s location, safety & health. Nothing has been confirmed at this time.
We ask all viewers to remember that the SWFEC is intended to be an opportunity for passive observation into the world of nesting bald eagles. While we appreciate and share everyone’s concern, please do not engage in activities at or near the nest that could interfere with or disturb the eagles.
We all hope for E8’s safe return. Viewers can support this outcome by continuing to watch the cameras at home rather than congregating near the nest. Any confirmed information about E8 will be shared with our viewers as soon as it is available.
