Somehow, Flyer, or Donald as David like to call him, got his foot caught in something and has been tugging at it for the past many hours. 

Today's discussion is about the options as HWF swings into action to deal with this crisis.

The potential rescue of Flyer is an expensive proposition. Just the cost of the crane is likely to be around $1000. Getting us to/from Sidney and adding in the cost of setting up a new camera, and we expect the bill to be something around the $3,000 area. This is in addition to what we were budgeting for the Fall when we are hoping to have the resources to put in the high-resolution cameras and circuits similar to what we have at White Rock - another close to $10,000. Please keep this in mind when you see the "Donate Now" button. HWF is almost 100% reliant upon your donations to continue our award-winning live wildlife video and research programs

 Update: See David's post in the discussion forum - the ground is currently too soft to support the crane

I am wondering if the soft ground can not be strengthened with some layers of pebbles obtained from highway construction or highways department.
another suggestion is to ask help from military means like things they use to cross marshes or unfavorable landscapes.Surely military has all kinds of equipment at their disposal....please get the innocent little one free...

I would like to make a suggestion regarding freeing Flyer. I was wondering if an arborist could "rig up" a pruner with a telescoping handle and attach a fiber-optic camera to the top (like an “endoscope” to view the cutting edge of the tool), then maybe climb an adjacent tree and use the pruner to cut Flyer free from the "twine". I think it might be less invasive than a human bothering the nest.

I was hoping for a brave telephone pole climber, perhaps? very brave. HOPE for Flyer!

Glad that i have found you people. The potential save of Flyer is an unmanageable proposition.This is notwithstanding what we were rationing for the Fall when we are maintaining a specific end goal, which is to have the assets to invest the high-determination Polaroids and circuits .thanks for the share.

I love pets especially when they are young. Though eagle appears to be scary ,it is really a sweet bird. How do you manage to feed this younger eagle? And i have so many doubts regarding the incubation as well.
