Eggs were laid: March 13th----5:10PM and March 16th----9:00PM

Eaglets hatched: April 18th (36 days) and April 22nd (38 days)

Fledged: Maybe July 11+12th (84-85 days)

****One fledgling, probably the younger one, found dead near the base of the tree on July 12th****


This wonderful pair high in their nest above beautiful Lake Washington had a very successful year right up to the end of it. They laid two eggs both of which hatched. They raised and fledged two apparently healthy and beautiful eaglets. On it's fledge date or perhaps the next day one of the eaglets, probably the younger one, was found dead near the base of the nest tree. We are still awaiting the results of the necropsy for the cause of death.

There was also the fear that the Dad at this nest had been killed on a bridge nearby. I found the positive answer to finally settle that question in the following excerpt from an email that I received.

I received the following information from my contact with the State of Washington........


I believe our web staff is in the process of posting several updates on our cams, and one specifically addressing the no information as of 9/14/11, from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on any results or actions related to the necropsy fledgling eagle.

The other adult bald eagle mortality you are inquiring about was not one of our Lake Washington birds since that pair (we assume) was observed in and around the Lake Washington Nest tree and the eagle killed by the bus was a well known Interstate 5 eagle known to many commuters in the Seattle area.

As mentioned in our update for the eaglecam, we will post any results on the necropsy as soon as we get them.


Added September 29 - update from the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife site:

Update September 2011
The streaming video for the eaglecam has been discontinued for the season. The adult eagles and the one surviving young eagle use the nest only rarely and their use will increase later this winter. Viewers are able to check on the tree-top nest views by clicking the 10 second image update.

As of the second week in September the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has not received any information from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on necropsy results on the one dead fledgling bald eagle from the Lake Washington nest site. In future months we will be working to bring you some breeding history about this nest site and pair of eagles. We wish the pair a safe winter and hope they return to this spectacular nest tree and site. We are making preparations to install a new camera that will allow several unique views of eagle nest this next season. Please send out the WildWatchcam link to all of your friends and relatives - http://wdfw.wa.gov/wildwatch/
