Hi LindaS .Welcome to this nest thread and thanks Steph for your post to Linda and passing on the link to Judy B's Impact of Sibling Rivalry As Seen on Web Cams

Linda .I was watching the rescue of DC 4
Published on Apr 20, 2017
Late this afternoon (April 20) DC 4ís leg became lodged in a Y-shaped stick on the edge of the nest. The eaglet was unable to free itself, so the American Eagle Foundation, in cooperation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, arranged for the eaglet to be rescued. Initial examination of the eaglet on the ground by a USFWS eagle expert found that the leg did not appear to be seriously injured. However, the eaglet will be taken to a veterinarian tomorrow where a radiograph of the leg will be taken to absolutely confirm that the leg is generally OK. Hopefully, the eaglet will be returned to the nest to rejoin its sibling and parents in a few days.

Here is the video with thanks to birdbrain56

I also watch and posted many pictures of her return to the nest ... here is the video with thanks toMsO

One there point I would like to make is that there is always the possibly that the parents won't return to the nest although I have never seen that happen...

DH1 hasn't been seen since 6:20am this morning, leading us to believe she has fledged!!Very Happy

ADDED...leaving it here that DH1 fledged today because she hasn't been seen since she ate on the nest early this morning.

I stand corrected!!!! Thank you Bev for finding that picture on Facebook.

DH1 has a white strip along the bottom of her tail feathers and DH2's isn't as defined

Also, this eaglet was FAR MORE AGGRESSIVE with the parents in the nest. My thoughts are that with it being DH2, he's exhausted and reclaiming his territory...and possibly hungry too!

WELCOME HOME OUR SWEET BOY DH2

There is no confirmation on DH1 fledging. She just hasn't been seen since 6:20am this morning. Parents have been to the nest a few times today and she has not returned. So...it's really just an assumption that she has fledged.
