As many know, the littlest eaglet at Dale Hollow referred to as DH3 was significantly smaller than the two older eaglets and did not have the same opportunities to get food and thrive. This afternoon, the oldest eaglet severely attacked the youngest and it appears that the youngest did not survive. However, this is not confirmed. A Critical Watch Alert is issued when things happen that may be difficult to watch so that people will know and may choose not to watch the nest at this time. If the little one passed away, the parents may take actions to dispose of the passed away eaglet. This can be very hard to watch. It is possible that they may move the eaglet from the main part of the nest, bury the eaglet in the nest, or they could eat the remains. At the time of the attack, one parent came in and covered the smallest one with nest material. If the worst has happened, many condolences to those who love and watch this nest.
