SWFL Eagles ~ Stick Possibly Nicks E14's Wing; Bleeding Seen 30 Min. Later ~ Harriet Pulls At Wing!

1/17/2020

Lady Hawk 1.14.2020 ~~ I went over & over the afternoon coverage trying to find out how E14 got a broken blood pin feather. I really could not see anything unusual happen. M drops to the nest and moves a little stick and it goes under the left wing of E14 briefly. It is possible it nicked the blood feather. In real time and slomo. Thirty minutes later, the first sign of bleeding is seen with blood on E14's foot at 3:28. Then thirty minutes after this, Harriet comes to the nest and sees the blood around E14's wing and she goes over and starts to pull a little on it. I believe she saw and smelled the blood from the broken pin feather and was trying to help E14. It is not really relevant at this point as to how it happened - it will not bring E14 back. I am so glad that CROW came up and retrieved E14's body and examined it confirming there was no man made fishing line or hook on E14 or anywhere in the nest as many were speculating that was the cause and calming fears that Harriet or M was at risk for injury. Our hearts remain very heavy with the loss of our precious baby. ?? Thank you for watching.

SWFL Eagles_ Harriet & M15.. A Bond So Strong, Breathtaking To Watch 01-16-20

1/16/2020

wskrsnwings It was calming and breathtaking to watch H & M keep their bond strong after the loss of E14 early yesterday morning. Harriet and M15 perched side by side, vocalized to each other, tracked other birds flying together, flew together from tree to tree and bonded under the guise of mating. (Eagles bond 10 months out of the year but the female has a short window of fertility, 2-3 weeks out of the year.) M even grabbed a stick and took it to the crotch of a west pasture snag where H joined him.

SWFL Eagles ~ Harriet & M15 ~ Keeping Their Love Alive & Bond Strong After Losing E14 ?? 1.16.20

1/16/2020

Lady Hawk Harriet and M15 stayed close to the nest yesterday after losing their baby E14. They woke up on the attic branches and greeted one another and shared a moment of bonding. Notice they form a heart afterwards! ?? Harriet & M will mate throughout the year which is important for keeping their bond strong as a couple. Harriet will not lay anymore eggs this season as her fertile period has long passed. We hope for more eggs in the Fall of 2020 and two eaglets for our wonderful eagle couple. ?? ??

SWFL Eagles ~ RIP Sweet E14 ?? Fly High & Forever Free On Angel Wings Little One ?? 1.15.20

1/16/2020

Lady Hawk It is with a very heavy heart to share that E14 has passed away sometime during the night. Harriet spent the night being close to her baby - E14 passed away sometime after 1:30 AM. In the morning we see her looking at her little one saying her goodbyes. From SWFEC: "It is with a heavy heart we share E14 has passed away. Yesterday afternoon, E14 was observed bleeding. We do not know the reason for the injury. We reached out to the proper authorities and were waiting to see how to proceed when night fell. Unfortunately, sometime during the night E14 passed away. This morning the reality of wildlife continued and E14 was being consumed. We have moved the cams off the nest during this difficult time. Fly High & Forever Free E14" ?? It is with great sadness as say goodbye to E14. Her life was short but very meaningful. E14 brought us great love & joy each day. We will always remember and love her! Soar to the heavens now on your angel wings E14 ????.

SWFL Eagles_ CROW Removes Precious E14 H & M Protect Their Area From Intruder 01-15-20

1/15/2020

wskrsnwings It is a sad day today as E14 passed away early this morning. CROW was able to come and retrieve E14's precious remains and the non-viable egg to determine the cause of death. M15 was in the nest when CROW arrived and left as the bucket was raised to the nest. M vocalized warnings and circled the nest tree before perching at a distance. As CROW and the truck were leaving, Harriet arrived to the nest tree, vocalizing at a 3-4 yr old sub adult circling the nest tree. M arrived to help Harriet secure the territory. They remained in the nest tree before Harriet dropped to the nest. Soar high and free little one. You now have your wings. You will always be part of H & M and tucked tight in our hearts. We will find strength observing Harriet, and M15 as they grieve. Thank you to my friend & fellow spotter for helping me get this footage recorded.

SWFL Eagles ~ ROLY POLY E14!! Mom & Dad Just Keeping Feeding Till Stuffed! 1.13.20

1/14/2020

Lady Hawk Harriet is feeding E14 the egret she brought in earlier today and then M will arrive and find the leftover catfish and start eating. Harriet will fly to the attic and E14 will still continue to take bites from Dad until a food coma takes over. Take a look at the HUGE size of E14's crop now! Truly a roly poly baby at 25 days old! E14 has had excellent nutrition with an assortment of surf and turf items like rabbit, squirrel, rodent, bird and fish so far this season. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ The Pantry Is STOCKED! Harriet Brings In WHOPPER CATFISH! M15 Feeds Her & E14! 1.13.20

1/14/2020

Lady Hawk Harriet and M are on the nest - M is eating the cattle egret Harriet brought in earlier today and he offer bites to Harriet who feeds E14. They are such a great team! Harriet will fly to the attic and M continues to feed E14 until full. Later, Harriet flies in with a huge catfish! She stands on the side of the nest afterwards and we see closeups of it. The catfish has whiskers or barbels on its face. Each barbel is loaded with tiny taste buds and special olfactory sensors to help the fish smell. Catfish tend to live in dark, murky waters where their vision isn't very useful. Barbels help the fish search out food using their senses of touch and taste. Harriet saves this catfish for supper!

1/14/2020

Lady Hawk Harriet begins to dig in the nest and buries her unhatched egg today and covers with nesting material. When she moves over we see that Eggbert2 is now covered up in the nest and is barely visible. ?? Will M15 uncover and dig Eggbert back up? Or will it stay buried now and become part of the nest? Time will tell but it is a clear sign that Harriet is ready to say goodbye. ?? We shall miss you egg#2 and I know E14 will miss you too. Thank you for watching!

1/13/2020

Lady Hawk Both Harriet and M were watchful over the pasture - M flies off the nest and returns to the upper attic - Harriet to the attic both vocal. She drops to the nest then takes off and nabs a cattle egret!! She is in route to the nest when M suddenly flies off the attic and they both return vocalizing loudly. A young eagle is in the area and followed Harriet back to the nest. She vocalizes for several minutes giving off warning calls - then we see the intruder flying overhead at 11:12 (pond cam). The intruder will fly to the left and out of view and Harriet finally calms down and begins to defeather her prey! Multicam coverage of the intruder! Thank you for watching!

1/13/2020

wskrsnwings We could see 25 day old E14 above and through the rails again today. M15 delivered a rabbit for breakfast and both he & H fed E14. Harriet grabbed a bone away from E14 that he/she 'snatched' from the food. M15 took a bath in the pasture pond and spent time drying out in one of the pond snags. There was attempted bonding until M slid down H's back.

SWFL Eagles ~ E14 is Mom's Little Helper!! Moves Sticks & Nesting Material!

1/13/2020

Lady Hawk E14 is certainly an inquisitive little baby watching Mom and helping her place a stick!! E14 picks up a stick and Harriet grabs it and places it to the side of the nest!! Mom's little helper! Harriet keeps an eye on her baby & takes another little stick from E14's beak & places that too! Just adorable! E14 will also take a large piece of nesting material and move it around - just like Mom does!! All these behaviors are being imprinted on E14 so when the time comes E14 will be able to build his/her own nest! Thank you for watching!
