It is good news that the eaglet was found nearby and unharmed. It
takes a village to protect native wildlife from the hazards we have
created for them in their now urbanized environments.
It is really great that this forum allows caring people to share their
observations and pictures but also allows you all to coordinate your
efforts, help protect them when you see them being disturbed and come to
their aid when they are in trouble. Some people don't agree with
nest locations being publicized, but when it helps to protect and educate
and give the eagles a helping hand when they need it is most, then it is
in their best interest.
Keep up the great work. We look forward to seeing the eaglet make
it's way back up to the nest on the forum, your friends at the
Burrowing Owl Cam.

see both remaining on the nest to be fed. Within a week or two they
usually begin foraging with the adults and will spend less time on the
