Announcement Just got off the phone given some shocking information to close the question on the cause of death.....


OWL did an inspection and concluded, without a doubt with their years of experience, that the eaglet showed direct signs of being attacked and killed by a bird....they suspect a owl attack sometime in the middle of the night to early morning. Damage to the head concluded it was not hit by a car and such and the head injures they observed could only have been done by another bird.

Another learning curve for me about the workings of nature at its best and worst Oh My

Thanks Annemie, for the wonderful photo of the little eaglet - may he/she fly free with his brothers and sisters in eagle heaven!

A special thanks to Stan and Annemie for their documenting of this nest with their many wonderful photos and observations and to Scott for his daily treks to the nest to make sure all was in order and for alerting us to the nest having fallen. And although it wasn't quite the ending we had all hoped for for this nest this year, thanks to the ground observers at this nest we at least know there was one successful fledgling which is a far better outcome than the last few years!

Mom and Dad Hastings were so close to having the perfect season this year. Fingers crossed for next year!

Yes, thank you once again to our ground observers with sharing information as gathered by you. This is a very sad outcome for an eaglet who could have survived the fall. I have to wonder where the parents were as there must have been much calling from the eaglet. Cry
Annemie thank you for the sweet picture.
I hope Ma and Pa are around to feed the newly fledged youngster.

Some good news to report Smile

One of the folks on regular eagle watch just called to let me know that the surviving fledging was just seen in the cottonwoods across the street with one of the adults.

Apparently last night it was high in the fallen nest tree for the evening. When I went there today it was nowhere to be seen in the tree but low and behold as soon as I walk back in the door the phone rings to give me the goods news it was across the street during my visit ...thanks Vicky Bravo
