Dear Friends:
H&G bald eagle nest
Godiva and Hershey started the breeding season with triplets. Eventually we all realized that 1 of the chicks was missing. We don’t know what happened to the third chick. This nest is at one of the longest distances for any of the monitors to see. We are sad that the 3rd chick did not make it. However, the GOOD news is that the other two H&G chicks made it to fledging and are out and flying. I keep trying for a photo of both of them and will post if I manage it. Thank you for all your support, prayers and input on the H&G Nest.
First Nest eagle nest: I saw Resolute of First Nest chasing about her cove just the other day.
I am still following the Ranger bald eagle nest and 2 different osprey nests and will continue to post photos and stories so you all will know how they are doing.
Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen

First Nest
Resolute has FLEDGED!
I didn’t get to see the first flight which I think occurred on Friday.
I did get to catch this much of Resolute’s flight this morning.  She was about 500 feet from the nest.
The fledging occurred when Resolute was 12 weeks of age.
Hopefully I will be able to catch the newest flier at the lake out in the open soon and get a photo for all of you.

First Nest
Resolute is going ever higher up in the nest tree.
Preparing for that first flight.
In the photo, Resolute had gotten up in the tree and dad Petruchio showed up with a fish.
Resolute wanted the fish but couldn’t quite figure out how to get down into the nest.
Finally, the chick just let go and fell down into the nest and onto dad.
Yep, there was quite a ruckus!
In the video you will see Resolute trying out all kinds of new perches.
