Jordan Lake: the Count is in … 33 … FLEDGED BALD EAGLE chicks for the 2020-2021 Bald Eagle Nesting Season! Out of 24 nests there were 20 nests that produced fledglings. That is an increase of 3 fledglings from 2020. Way to go parent bald eagles … especially the Captain Nest that had triplets!

Jordan Lake: Food Fight! Triplet Bald Eagle Fledglings update: Dad tried to get a fish for the triplets to the nest, drop it and run, but he got caught in the middle of the fight. At one point there were 4 full-sized bald eagles in the nest! Eventually Dad was able to flee the nest, was exhausted, but appeared to have survived – it can be a rough life to be a raptor parent. The biggest fledgling, a female, won the fish. What a melee!

Jordan Lake: Bald Eagle Nest SUPRISE!!! at Captain’s Nest. You never know, during a bald eagle breeding season, how the cycle will end. Once in a while you’re completely surprised right near the finish … There were actually THREE chicks who fledged from the Captain’s Nest – usually there are 2 chicks. It is always difficult to track the number of eaglets while they are in the nest and Captain’s Nest proved just that. If you look just below the arrow you can see the face of the 3rd chick. We have now seen all 3 of the chicks fledged and enjoying their cove. Way to go Captain Mom and Dad! Triplets! My thanks to Captain Doug for sharing his photo and the Captain Nest journey with us.
