I'm very concerned about the littlest one. Has anyone seen him move from that spot today? :(

Lolly said...

He's UP! HE'S UP!!! *SIGH* I feel sooooo much better. :) :) :)

Thanks so much to everybody at NCTC for getting our babies back to us. It was a dreadful few days, not knowing what was going on. Lolly, I am glad he got up for you. They rest too long sometimes and give all us "Mommies" something else to worry about.

And Steve, we are glad you are back!!

Nice to see the babies up and about this morning. The bigger they get, the smaller that nest gets. Wow, I thought the nest was good sized when they were little. Sure didn't take them long to outgrow it! For those of you who are interested, they are banding the Falcons in PA on Wed, 24 May, 1300. It will be a live web stream if you want to watch. It's interesting, but those babies are EXTREMELY vocal about it...they don't like it and make no bones about telling everyone how they feel. They're banding early this year, they usually wait until they start getting their other feathers. Now they're just little white fluff balls. But it is interesting to watch. Anybody know if they're banding the Eaglets? When? Will it be on live feed?

Tuesday, 6:00 a.m. Suzanne, Steve had said before that our babies won't be banded. I bet it will be interesting to watch the falcons because it has sound. For anybody that doesn't have the live feed and just looks at the eagle cam photos, the third eaglet is at the trunk of the tree and you can barely see him but he is there.

Suzanne said...

Ok, thanks Sharon. I didn't know they weren't going to be banded. I've been watching the eagles since they were eggs, but haven't been on the blogger till recently. Then of course, had to use anonymous at first, and finally gave that up. So I guess I'll try to watch the Falcons. Those little fluff balls with feet are extremely vocal about being handled. It's funny to watch...

The oldest eaglet sure was bouncing around the nest last evening! Did any of you see him "flying" from one side of the nest to the other? Oh my....he is growing up....

This has been such a great site. A the Friends of Blackwater the eaglets there have both fledged, the nest looks so sad and empty

It looks like these younguns are getting some serious air under them when they are flapping their wings. Don't look like it will be too much longer. WAH!WAH!

7:36am Jo-MD It's so good to be able to get the video up first thing in the morning. Thanks to NCTC & Steve, we're thankful you've returned. I don't think any of us would have made it through the past 3 days if we hadn't been able to share our thoughts with eachother on the Blog. It's no picnic going through 'withdrawal' all by yourself! There's a lot of practice flying going on -It just looks like they're going to knock the other out of the nest or keep on going!

Looks like the kids are tired from their morning exercise session. I wish I could get the live video at work. Oh well, at least I can access the still cam.

Suzanne said...

Did you watch the exercise this morning, Marie? They were really flapping...all 3 of them at the same time. I was holding my breath, worried one would knock another one out of the nest. Must have been a good workout though, they're all snoozing now. Guess that wing flapping is a lot of work!

Joni said...

My live feed isn't working again and I only see two on the still camera, does anyone see all of them?

MEMA Jo said...

10:28am Jo-MD My live feed is also down. The 3 are there- Big Boy perches right under the cam by the tree trunk-if you look close you will see his head. I had the video in the corner of my screen & happened to think that they were taking too long of a nap - until I realized it wasn't working. Live Eagle Cam is up - thank goodness!

eagle-eyed sharon said...

I have a whole new appreciation for the eagle cam (stills) since we were without all of it over the weekend. Not as good as the live feed but absolutely better than nothing at all!!

sunny said...

Hey Steve! Thanks again to all NCTC staff for getting 'our' camera up and running again.

A couple of questions: Are the adults still beak-feeding the eaglets? And since the adults aren't on the nest very much any more, is one always in sight of the nest, or are they 'out and about' all day? Thanks for educating us!
