Status of Quiet Waters nest since closure of Park

I received this query from Judith on the South Florida Audubon Website:

"Does anyone know how the Quiet Waters Eagles are doing?!??"

My reply

Hi, Judith-- I have not heard anything since Kit's visit on March 15th, when one of the eaglets was branching. First free flight usually occurs within a week after branching. They may return to the nest to be fed, especially if more than one eaglet successfully fledged. I presume that Quiet Waters Park was subsequently closed due to the Coronavirus restrictions. Since the only clear observation area was from inside the Park, we may never know.

Hello,

I was able to go to the nest site for the first time since the virus lockdown and got a few shots of the siblings and they are both doing great! The Park is still closed I was able to get in because I am now a registered Broward County Parks Volunteer and was assigned to this nest this year for the Eagle Watch program for reporting on the nest progress. These shots are very far away so the quality is not that great, I wish others could see what I see in my binoculars because they were playing and flipping upside-down and locking talons briefly, it was amazing to see, they seemed to be having a blast! I am including a link to my Nikon site for all the shots.

Lil-- see Kit's photos above. The eaglets are flying free and may visit the nest but they will soon be independent and will likely migrate north to find cooler water. Fish tend to stay deep where the water is cool. Interestingly, there is more oxygen in cool water than warm. Since they are not as skilled as the adults, they may fly as far north as Chesapeake Bay. One eaglet from Palm Beach was tracked all the way up to Maine and may have crossed into Canada as well. The adults in south Florida tend to stay in the general area of the nest all year round.

Ken, thank you so much for the update and information. I usually check out the Pembroke Pines nest since it's closer to my house but was wondering about the Quiet Waters family. Great photos Kit!
