The two birds are still around, just sitting on branches watching the traffic pass by.

Until they did that at night, I did not realise how light it is with the streetlights and traffic.

From the little info I was able to get an owl attacked the two the other night. 8 went to the ground and was enjoying the sights..No one seems to know more and they aren't speculating, that is the powers to be.

Wasn't 8 the one that was taken from the nest because of the entanglement it had with some plastic?

It looks like it may have been in vain.  Sad

Recent news from the website:



"CROW posted on their Facebook page that an eagle they believe to be E8 was brought in May 13. The eagle has a femur fracture and will require surgery. We will post any updates from CROW."

It would be great if it is E8. If was sad not knowing where (s)he is was. Heal and set free would be a good ending.

Let's hope that it is third time lucky for E8.

From the website
"CROW UPDATE: 
E8 has been quiet, alert and responsive. Was fed soft pieces of rat today and observed ‘hock’ sitting or laying flat. E8 moved to larger enclosure to encourage movement. Receiving pain meds. Positive signs, but remains critical and guarded."

"
TD RANT:
I wish people would not use "laying" (as in laying eggs or to be put in a horizontal position) when they mean "lying" (as in lying down or being in a horizontal position).

Update from tw0 days ago on E8.


5/20 CROW Update: Condition upgraded to guarded. Fracture site, pin placement looks good. Moving to a soft solids diet. Encouraged that E8 bears weight on leg and uses foot and claw normal fashion - indicates normal nerve function.

Go, E8!

While I'm happy E7 is progressing to finding his own snacks, I'm relieved that little E8 now has a chance. bounce

The cameras will be closed down on May 29th.  there is little to look at now that E7 is winging his way to freedom and E8 is still in care.

Something to look forward to next year.  Thank you jimmycee for posting this link. I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Yes, that was so interesting. Maybe one of us will come across another cam in the meantime. There are all kinds of critters out there we can spy on.

There was a nest in the Hanover area of Pennsylvania, this past winter into early spring. Two eggs were laid, eagles sat and sat and sat...eggs did not hatch so the adults abandoned, probably try again next time

Update on E8

E8 Update: ‪#‎E8‬ has been moved to the small flight enclosure outside to give the eaglet more room to spread its wings and help build strength in its right leg. The move outside is to also encourage E8 to eat on its own without assistance. If E8 continues to improve over the next couple of weeks the next step will be to remove the pin from the femur.

Thank you for the update. I assumed (incorrectly) that the site had gone off air now that E7 left.

Post  Kelejan on 7/13/2016, 11:58 pm

Update on E8 from yesterday:

E8 UPDATE: E8’s leg infection has improved and no longer requires antibiotics. The eaglets pectoral muscles have increased in strength and this will help build endurance, agility and flight duration. E8 is eating very well and will soon be introduced to live prey to assist with the development of natural hunting instincts. E8 will continue to receive daily conditioning and the carpal bumpers and tail guard have been removed. The eaglet currently weighs 7.9 pounds.


It seems as E8 is doing quite well. Very Happy  The big test is yet to come. Freedom!
