"I have a treat for you. This video shows 2 of the eaglets. Hopefully the 3rd one was just out of sight. Thank you RF Eagle Cam."

From MsO today --


Even though the camera is askew, we could see the eagle's tail and know who was on the nest. A gust of wind today moved the camera again and we lost most of what little we could see

A little history of the nest --


Eagle Cam informed us that the original RF nest collapsed during the "Snowmageddon" in Feb 2010. This nest was built in the current tree near the old one and first used in 2011, thus this is 6th year for current nest.


This is their tenth of watching this pair and this is the fourth year with a camera on the nest. Typically, they have had two eaglets survive each year. One year, only one survived. We have no idea how many eggs were laid in prior years. In 2011 three eaglets survived, and after leaving the nest, spent a few weeks together before moving on! In 2013 there were two eggs and both eaglets successfully left the nest


In 2014 there was one surviving eaglet, Justice, who fledged successfully. The other two eggs that were laid each had their own tragedy. Egg #1 was lost very close to the hatch day when a frozen rabbit was accidently dropped on it. Egg #2 successfully hatched but tiny Liberty9 was lost at the age of 6 days to unknown causes.

--Justice at 5 1/2 weeks (Credit Teryl G. Grubb, USDA Forest Service)


In 2015 we had only one egg hatch on March 24th. That chick--Glory -- was lost on March 25, 2015 at only one day old. We don't know why. The chick in the second egg ceased all movement on the third day of trying to hatch.
