GREAT NEWS on the H&G nest. I just received an email from the Wildlife Resources Commission. They have notified me that they will not burn the block that we have all worried about, until after the two chicks have fledged. Big Chick and Little Chick are safe for now and we need to keep them safe and all their bald eagle and golden eagle kinfolk too! Now we have to get the whole permitting process put right and the proposed changes to the eagle permitting Rule in the Federal Register stopped. Keep passing along the Petition and the Comment posting just above this notice. THANK YOU ALL for your help in keeping the chicks safe and giving me the energy to continue. peace and grace, doc ellen

Quiz, like all eaglets, is very aggressive.
He thinks there should be food in mom’s talons so he makes a move for where food is supposed to be…….
then mantles with his wings what he thinks is food….
and plainly shows his disgust that mom brought nesting materials.
Sorry: NO audio…words were being used on nearby boats that are not family friendly, so I had to mute the audio.   video at https://flic.kr/p/Gx94L5

Dear Readers:

DANGER to ALL BALD EAGLES. Please share this posting.
I just got this link from a fellow Bald Eagle advocate. So far, nothing in my RSS in the Federal Register about the eagles and this permitting. But, sadly, I would not be surprised to see it show up. I am looking into this and IF I see a public comment open in the Federal Register about this I will let all of you know so you can comment.

the link to the Federal Register Wildlife is at https://www.federalregister.gov/topics/wildlife… and if you go down to February 17, 2016 you will see the ruling that originally changed the permitting that is mentioned in the article.
