Hello! I normally watch the eagle family @Delta 2, however not much going on there last day or so...thought I'd take a peak at other cameras. Looks like there's an eaglet here

Good catch, Wonderosity!

I just checked the tracking maps on the Alcoa Eaglecam website (http://www.alcoa.com/locations/usa_dave ... glecam.asp), and it looks as if both fledglings are still in the area, but getting more adventurous!

I checked the blog for the Davenport eagles - http://alcoa.typepad.com/davenport_eagle_nest/ - and it looks as if Star and Sky were last seen on the cam on August 19, though one might have been heard the morning of the 20th, and the maps show they have definitely left the area. They were 18.5-19 weeks old when they left, and had been flying for about 6-1/2 or 7 weeks. love

Their transmitters use cell phone technology - which means that they may not "call home" very often when they're away from cell towers. I thought the August 26 blog explained that very well:

"Now that they have left the nest area, they may check-in more sporadically. Cell coverage can be spotty and that will be the main reason that you don't see them check-in everyday. Hopefully, they will settle in a spot that has good coverage. If not, they may go long periods of time without checking in. If they end up in Canada or even some places in WI or MN, they may not "check-in" for months. Unfortunately, this goes with the territory when using the cell technology units. While, there are many good things about using them - they can collect far more data than satellite units and they cost much less in terms of the price of the unit and especially in terms of data costs, we don't always know what happens to a bird when it goes out of coverage."

Safe travels, Star and Sky - and if you do get to Quebec, say "hi" to Freedom, released from the Carolina Raptor Center and only checking in occasionally since he discovered the lakes and trees (and lack of cell towers) up there - though we expect him to head south once the nights start getting chilly.
