First Glimpse, Jan 22nd -- Eaglet Makes Short Appearance
This post was updated on .
At 4:59pm on Saturday I snapped 5 frames over a minute's time (per the time stamp of the photos) that showed an eaglet appear and slump back into the nest out of sight. I waited for another hour but the eaglet never reappeared for more pictures. I also made some videos that included one of the adults fly-in, but did not see the eaglet the best I can tell. During this time, both adults flew west to the dead trees and returned. The eaglet pics along with some of the adults today are below and I'll post a video link later this evening. Life, family, moves on for this pair.
Awesome shots....I really can see the new hatchling!!! That is so exciting....thanks so much for taking the time, energy and patience needed to get such wonderful shots and for documenting this experience for us all!
Great moment Jim. Like you, I waited today and fixed my camera on the nest waiting and watching for a head to pop up. I was sure there was something in the nest and you confirmed it! Judging from some of the movement I saw today I would not be suprised to see at least a second one soon enough - the eagle on watch seemed to be tending to things in more than one spot the entire time I was watching. I'm sure we'll be at the nest at the same time soon enough! MF

This morning 1/22/11 at 9:30 A.M i observed the two eagle roosting in the mamelucas.
at 3:45 P.M i observed one of the eagle in the edge of the nest feeding the eaglet , Judging from some of the movement I saw today I would said there a second one. i observe the eagle was feeding two eaglet by the movement, she feed one of the eaglet for a few time and them she made another movement more tor the inside of the next what make me believe she was feeding two eagles
Thanks for all the comments. I must admit, my first love is photography and nature in general, but this pair and their family this past year has really grown on me. Since I'm only a couple miles from here, the trip is pretty easy to grab the camera and enjoy. My wife has already joked she is logging on to Ken's web site to find me some days. jim
