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.
Come join tomorrow’s Webinar: a journey through a year with the Bald Eagles of First Nest at Jordan Lake. We will explore what it means to be a parent bald eagle and how to grow as a bald eagle chick and then fledgling. Thursday June 3, at 7PM at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/regi…/7604824265165301005 . There is a registration fee of $9.50. I hope you will come and join Mom Kate and Dad Petruchio and some of their chicks during the 1 hour presentation.

Jordan Lake, Bald Eagle Nest report: H&G NestOne of the chicks at the nest tried hard to impress Dad Hershey. Dad dutifully watched the chick bounce, but quickly went back to doing other nest-keeping chores. The chick is not yet properly branching, when it steps up on the branch to the left of the nest. Soon though, it will be much higher above the nest in proper branching mode.
Looking left to right: Mom Godiva getting a piece of fish ready to feed to her rapidly growing chicks, a chick right against the main trunk of the tree and then the second chick to the right of the main trunk.
The whole family! That is Dad Hershey perched way to the left, then in the nest it is Mom Godiva, a chick trying to push in and get a bite of food and then the other chick still to the right of the trunk. Great getting to see the whole family all at once. And, it is easy to see in this photo how light brown Dad is … that is how he got his name … after the chocolate bar.
The bald eagle chick is branching higher! I included a closeup and a full shot so you can see his progress.
Jordan Lake, First Nest: The bald eagle chick at First Nest wants to feed himself, but Dad Petruchio thinks the chick needs some help. Dad puts his foot down and the chick has to wait for Dad’s okay.
