The juveniles are learning to become independent, and the adults will soon be leaving them. Do the adults stick together when they leave, or do they go their seperate ways, until they come back to nest again? Will the juveniles travel together? Is it purely instinct that tells them when it's time to leave and where to go? Simple questions, I'm sure, but SOMEbody had to ask an eagle question!! Rolling Eyes

I apologize for starting out with a sad story about nest abandonment,
but the considerations and logic that went into the biologist'sdecision
were interesting considering it didn't work out. Sad
It supports what you have
said before, Bill, regarding the eagles feeling more threatened by
activities above or level with the nest, and that because a behavior is
common to most eagles doesn't mean each one will react the same.

RedBud: That is a very sad story and I assure you that biologist is going through hell. When you are dealing with wild animals or humans for that matter it is not all written in stone. I could tell you all of times I cried myself to exhaustion after a mishap in my breeding program because I made a mistake or a bird showed unbefore seen behavior that resulted in catastophy. It is a life of ups and downs. Often the successes aren't as plentiful as we like.

I must go to work. Watch the kids for me and stay out of the cookie jar. Bill :)

What was the date of that article? Was it recent? So sad - was it all being watched on live webcam by the public?

Laura, I don't know the date the article was written, but it was one of their 2006 nests. I only discovered the site recently after it was all over. Sad The eagles in Oklahoma do nest much earlier than those in B.C. I would guess this happened in late March or early April. More of the eagle restoration program and the other nest cam are discussed on the same page above the sad story.

The cams were both live streaming to the public, but I don't know if this one was up during this time.

Redbud:: That is so sad about the second nest! We were lucky with "our" Sidney and Victoria.

I have to say that I truely didn't think that there were many bald eagles in ontario, but I think my eyes weren't open for them in the past. I've been keeping my eyes more open and to my absolute surprise saw a bald eagle (or so I assumed from the white head and the dark body) sitting calmly in a farmers field (I was about an hour and a half drive north east of Toronto)! I think it had something in it's talons as it bent it's head down and started in on a ripping motion. I assumed I was wrong and seeing things but I have done a couple of google searches and it seems that the bald eagle (and to a lesser extent the golden eagle) is making a return to southern Ontario AND had been sighted in the very area I was in! I am taking a camera with me on my next road trip!

As important as it is for us to experience the harshness and reality of nature, I sort of hope that it was not live streamed, especially as it was more than likely human intervention that caused it.

Bill,
Question regarding the Saanich juveniles, who are now both flying and hopefully starting to learn hunting skills.

I noticed that there are a couple of folks that have been feeding the Saanich eagles on the rock by the water. I don't know the actual number of times, but feel that it's about twice a week or so. Sometimes it's chicken and other times it's salmon and a few times a roadkill has been dropped on the rock also.

What are your thoughts on doing this at this stage in the juveniles lives?
