Trio rescues young eagle from clutches of icy river

Wildlife News

 

Interesting Alaska Story:

First, I am also  a Director on the American Bald Eagle Foundation in Haines, Alaska.   As many of you know, just before our local Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival, Nov. 19-20,  I spent the previous week in Haines, Alaska at our Chilkat-Haines Bald Eagle Festival.  

Several of  you also attended that wonderful Alaska event.  Our member, Ed Kingshott/edkeagle   was also there and he forwarded the following article.

Originally published Thursday, Nov 24, 2011; Issue: 47

Three rescuers used a rope harness, a couple two-by-fours, and a pair of Pampered Chef scissors to free a juvenile eagle frozen in the Chilkat River near 21 Mile Haines Highway on Nov. 17.

California wildlife photographer Mark Lissick spotted the bird – literally spread-eagle on the ice and not moving – while returning from a photo outing. He said he’d seen several eagles that day with ice on their wing and tail feathers.

Redding's famous eagle pair, Patriot and Liberty, tend to their new nest in a tree near the Sacramento River in Redding. The eaglecam was to have begun streaming live video of nest activities to the Internet today, but the new nest is too far away for the camera to catch the action.

The eagles were supposed to go live today.

If everything had gone according to plan, the "eaglecam" would have begun streaming video on the Web of Redding's famous eagle couple, Patriot and Liberty.

For three years the eaglecam gave viewers a glimpse into the eagles' lives as they prepared their nest, laid eggs and raised the eaglets, who would grow up and eventually leave their treetop home.

Two eagle poachers will be serving their weekends in jail, must pay a fine, and are banned from possessing bird parts for three years, a judge decided at a sentencing hearing at the Duncan courthouse last week.

In April, provincial court Judge Michael Hubbard convicted Jerome Seymour of 16 of the 27 counts against him related to killing and selling 10 bald eagles, two swans and one kingfisher in Ladysmith, Duncan and Chilliwack between January and April 2006.

Super strong winds have blown out the nest of a pair of Red Tail Hawks in Fresno county in California this week.  This is known as the Eaglecrest nest.  Fortunately this is not the time of year when they were nesting.  The red-tail pair have been seen flying over the tree which is now 90% gone!!  Thanks to our HWF forum member, Bonnie, for sending in the link to the YouTube video.

Where are the bald eagle cams at Chehalis this year? - Reposted

Wildlife News

This article was originally posted last year at this time but the question still remains so this is re-posted on behalf of David Hancock:

With all the media attention on this record breaking number of bald eagles here in the Fraser Valley on the Chehalis/Harrison river estuary, we've been asked "why don't we have even one Chehalis cam running -- with 5000 eagles out there"?  Well it is dollars.  $6-7,000 is needed immediately and at least $2-3,000 more to keep it running for a couple of months.  And perhaps someone with $10,000 to spare will give a call.

The equipment for the platform is all ready and waiting for delivery. We need transportation out to the platform plus money for fuel for the fuel cell and for the server and network infrastructure at the base station. The previous base system has been re-located to another site and is in use, and we need to do some changes to be able to get at the equipment without going into the regional district's pump house; a new, external enclosure for the equipment.  The picture shows one of the cams ready to go if the money comes in to do this project.

604-538-1114 or 800-938-1114

Thank you.
