Yes indeed, this is sweet news Mary. I am glad to hear of such a wonderful way to remember the little chick by freedom for another eagle.
They are very thoughtful to find such a way.
Thank you for posting that,
carolyn

On Savannah Eagle's Facebook page today:

Savannah Eagle Hi Shirley -- the baby was killed by a predator. Neither our staff or the tracker that we brought in could find conclusive evidence of the kind of predator that it was. Neither could they find a breach in the screening/fencing surrounding the aviary. We will likely never know what kind of animal it was.

From Savannah Eagle today-----


Savannah Eagle

Hi All - wanted to let everyone know that we've had a nocturnal visitor in the Eagle aviary over the weekend (racoon). We are working to make sure he can't get in again, but in the mean time, we will be spending the night in a more secure location.

Is this what happened to the eaglet?

I was wondering the same thing.

do u think this maybe the intruder who got the little eaglet..

Savannah Eagle Probably same predator. Raccoon.

From the Carolina Raptor Center ~~~


Adler, our bald eagle, came to us as a juvenile bird in the fall of 2005. Bald eagles do not get their distinctive white heads and white tails until they are between 5 and 7 years old. Until that time, each feather molt brings in more and more white feathers; large birds like eagles do not lose large amounts of feathers during each molt like smaller birds do, so it takes a while for their heads to be completely white. Their darker colors during their younger years help them to better camouflage with their environment while learning the ropes of being bald eagles. Here is a photo of Adler as a young bird with only a couple of white patches showing through. Check back tomorrow to see Adler as he was growing up!

Here is the CRC's second installment in their story of Adler the bald Eagle ~~~

This photograph of Adler was taken in the spring of 2011. You can see that he has a lot more white feathers but his head still looks a little "dirty" because he had one more molt until he had his full white head.

Don’t you just love the feather on Adler’s face. We think it shows that even though he always looks serious, he has a softer side as well. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s photo of Adler all grown-up!

Bald eagles are found over most of the United States, with the largest populations in Alaska. In the east, they still breed in upstate New York, Maine, Michigan, and along the Carolina and Florida coastlines. They are now nesting on inland lakes, a sign of continued recovery.

The size of bald eagles varies greatly depending on how far away they are from the equator. Alaskan bald eagles take the cake weighing an average of 14 lbs. versus an eagle from Florida that can weigh a mere 5 lbs! This variation is consistent with Bergmann’s rule which you can read more about at the website listed below.
