This shows how much they actually moved around before they were "rescued"

Eaglets Still in Temporary Tree

I just came back from checking on Star & Sky. They are still in the tree they were placed in this morning by USF&W. Each one has moved up a little higher and to some slightly smaller branches and both looked good. I did see both Liberty and Justice in the area so I think they are still in good hands for now until they can fly on their own.

Staying Put For Now

It was great to see Liberty and Justice stop in the nest for a while this morning. It will be interesting to see if/when they attempt any repairs to the damaged nest. Clearly their focus for right now is on Star and Sky and getting them to a point where they can fly.

Speaking of Star and Sky, it appears they have stayed in the tree where they were placed yesterday. I will go down there later today to check on them.

An afternoon update from Alcoa ---

A Shady Spot to Perch

Star and Sky are doing a good job of blending in and staying in the shade on the branches of the new tree today. I checked on them about 12:30 pm today. While I was there I saw one of the parents cruise by and a juvenile eagle made dash by as well. I think the juvie was trying to tell them they will be able to fly just like that very soon.

From John, the person from Alcoa who has been checking on the eaglets ---

I did hear back from USF&W to answer the question from Mavis about which talon was missing for Star. Here is the answer:
"Star is missing her hallux talon. We did not see any evidence of an open wound or infection."

A beautiful afternoon at the nest. Both Liberty and Justice were there together seeming to be looking for the eaglets. they each brought a nice fish to the nest for them. I'm a little concerned that the eaglets have not been fed on their branches.

Star & Sky Are Roaming

I went to the nest site mid-day Sunday. I was able to see Sky in the tree, but did not see Star. Based on data from Dr. Miller over the weekend it appears Star left the tree about 6:30pm Friday. Sky was there when I visited late Sunday morning but the data shows he left the tree sometime Sunday afternoon. You can see in the attached image generally where they have been from 6am Sunday until 6am today. Hopefully they are getting some lift and getting into lower levels of the trees where they are located. We will just have to watch the next few days and see when they can get back to the nest tree.
