Hi folks. I'm afraid I have sad news. One of the fledglings was found dead near the base of the nest tree. Here's the report that was posted on the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife website:

Update July 2011
The young eagles, are in the process of fledging, which involves the mastering of flight and dealing with all of the natural hazards of flying in an urban environment. Unfortunately the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife was notified on July 12, 2011 that one of the fledgling eagles was found dead near the nest tree with no visible injuries to indicate how the bird died. A law enforcement agent form the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service picked up the eagle, and a necropsy is planned to determine the cause of death As additional information is obtained, a posting with appear on this website. As mentioned, fledging time for any bird has high mortality risks associated with it. The remaining nest mate seems to have mastered basic flying 101 and may depart the nest soon or continue to use it as a temporary feeding and roosting site. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife appreciates the cooperation and vigilance of all the private landowners in the area who have come to know this bald eagle family and consider them part of the greater community.

Me again...
I'm not sure which chick was lost - I haven't had time to watch very often, and both were happily branching the last time I looked.

Rest in peace, little one - and fly free forever, far beyond the sky. sad

To everyone who watches this nest I am so sorry for your loss.
I am in a state of disbelief that there have been so many deaths this year at nests that we all watch. It has been a tragic year but all we can do is carry on andhope that all goes well for those who successfully fledge. hug

Thank you for posting the sad news, JudyB. sad

jkr..This nest is one that I was covering and I'm very saddened by the news. :cry1: I did post scaps right above JudyB's and your post of one of the babies on July 12th. It looked well and vigorous and had a meal while it was on the nest. Hopefully the one in the scaps is still with us!! fingers crossed



ETA......I went to take a look at the cam and it either got stuck last night or they have turned it off.

Mary I checked this cam on the 15th and it was not operating then. I too am sadCry Hankyover this loss. This nest has been so calm. One eaglet did seem less active and I would wonder if the nest was smaller than some others and that meant less activity. Hopefully the other eaglet is soaring high and free and will do well.

The parents here have spent so much time in the nest tree and often both would sit on the nest or branch for hours even when the eaglets were older.
