The bald eagle is the symbol of America.  I have often said America has died


Epitaph for an Eagle
Bald eagle killed by plane, mate carries on -  April  26,  2011
Male eagle feeds chicks after death of female.
The eagle was part of a nesting pair that has been at the nearby Norfolk Botanical Garden, Virginia since 2003, and was watched by about 16,000 on the Eagle Cam.
Biologist Reese Lukei said the will watch this nest very closely over the coming days to see if male is able to provide regular feeding for the chicks.

Indeed, I am deeply saddened along with the others.  I have watched this nest for about 2 months. I watched the eggs hatch.

April 19 issue of ZionsCRY I told you the 3 eaglets would be banded, they were.
The three NBG eaglets are now identified as follows

Purple band NV – #0679-01293 – youngest chick – male – weighed 2633 grams = 5.81 lbs
Purple band NX – #0679-01294 – middle chick – female – weighed 3100 grams = 6.84 lbs
Purple band NZ – #0679-01295 – oldest chick – female – weighed 3405 grams = 7.52 lbs

One WVEC news report said the pair were feeding on the runway.  The plane was landing and only the male escaped.
When the male finally returned to the nest with a fish for the babies, he was panting.
While it is normal for eagles to pant to keep cool, he looked upset and frazzled.  Poor pappa.
However am I gonna provide for my babies and still watch over them!?

As I watched the nest blog reactions of people who have watched this nest, many school kids, people posted they were crying.
Eagles mate for life.  The male will likely seek another mate in the fall.

Norfolk Botanical Garden WVEC eaglecam


Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Sad and difficult decision day for many


DGIF biologists decided that it is in the best interest of the eaglets to remove them from the nest and relocate them to the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

The male eagle brought the babies a fish and fed them Tuesday evening and Wednesday early morning.  
Mid-morning he brought a fish and left it, and the eaglets ate it by themselves.
The female's first mate was killed by a plane in 2002 and she took this male as her second mate.

Norfolk Botanical Garden explains removal of babies - 10:00 am April 27, 2011
One option discussed was to leave them and see if the father could continue to raise them alone.
It is possible he could, but it is also very possible he could not continue to provide enough food as they grow and need a higher calorie count.
There was a concern it would reach a point of no return and it would be difficult to remove the eaglets.
It would present the problem of being too late to remove them for their survival. There is a reason it takes two parents to raise the eaglets.

Another option would be to try to foster them out to other nests. That would require finding three nests with eaglets at the exact right age.
There is also the concern the foster parents may reject these eaglets.
DGIF has the legal responsibility for the welfare of these eaglets and has made the decision to remove them, deeming this is in the best interest of the eaglets

The three eaglets will be raised together at WCV. The intention is to release them (they are in good health) so human contact will be minimal.

A tree climber took eaglets gently from the nest, put them safely in a bag, and lowered them to the ground.
Just like the banding day April 21.


Buddy, NBG nest eaglet
The Wildlife Center of Virginia is in Waynesborough Virginia. The 2008 eaglet with Avian Pox "Buddy" was taken there.
They are very good about sharing information about the progress of Buddy and I expect we will get frequent updates about them.

Ed Clark is co-owner of the wildlife center.  
I have asked if he draws a salary and never been answered, so my guess is that he is a very wealthy man doing this.

Virginia indians did a lovely tribute to the female eagle killed.
As he played the little flute, an eagle flew overhead.  Hard not to get tears.

May 27 and 28, 2011  Memorial Day weekend - 2 of the 3 eaglets 'fledged.'
The experts assure me they consider flying from the nest perch a couple feet to a side perch is 'fledging.'
I would not consider this fledging myself, but the experts do.  I am NOT an expert.
The birds are in the wildlife center cage, not their natural habitat.

The male was first.  He was the last hatched.  The oldest female was next.  The middle bird has not flown outside the nest as of morning May 29th.
One of them - probably the oldest female - flew to the lower step, then to the floor, then back to the nest.  Pretty good!
The nest is about 4 feet off the floor, not 80 feet up a tree.

The 3 eaglets are at
The Wildlife Center of Virginia, a hospital for native wildlife
Waynesboro VA
http://www.wildlifecenter.org

The mod experts on the webcam blog are calling them fledglings
http://www.wvec.com/marketplace/microsite-content/eagle-cam.html

WVEC has a chatroom for the Botanical Garden and the Eaglecam.
Some in the chatroom are very nasty, but some are very nice

The Wildlife Center of Virginia appears to lean Democrat.  They use facebook.  I DO NOT like facebook and will not use it.
They are very into saving wildlife that might be better off not saved.  They do wonderful work tho.
I enjoy their critter cam and blog

NV flies beautifully!  Like a real eagle.  Wait .. HE IS a REAL EAGLE!  Smile

NZ the oldest female injured her leg and has been in a flight cage to rest.  She is healing very well and expected to return with her siblings next week.

leaf saying hi to the eaglets - That leaf was the subject of a lot of silly chat.
Rub a dub dub, eagle in new large bathtub, water pan





KS bathes allllllllllll by herself.
But she had a bit of a fight to get one of NBG eaglets outta the tub first.
After she was out of the tub she sat on the near Aperch and I could see the lack of tail so know it was KS

                     ---------------------

BEST viewing times are about dawn eastern time, then evening.
The dark at the far end is a net so the flying birds wont hurt themselves over-flying a high perch back there.
The black background is too dark to see the 4 birds perching together on it.

If you are here, you love eagles.  This is a different story than the NBG eaglets.
This is an incredibly beautiful picture story
http://horsefeathers.zenfolio.com/p927090704


First Eagle, a female, apparently hit a powerline. Her wing is permanently damaged and she is unable to fly.
She is a breeding female from a pair that have nested on the refuge near our house.
Almost 2 months later we get a second Eagle, a male, from the same refuge.
He has been in a fight with something and has a partial wing amputation. Same wing as the female.
We believe this male eagle may be the mate to the female.  Here they are introduced for the first time in the flight pen of the eagle hospital.
