April 5
Meadow stretched and fell below. Is in view on log below. Boots are on ground , watching and will do appropriate thing, if necessary. Too bad chatters have come in and are so rude. We had a nice chat and great mods, wish others would just chill and go elsewhere
I have some photos, just to find time

Meadow was transported at centre where he will put in a flight pen and get release ready
We will miss him, but he could not be left on ground, because of all the predators in area.
Wil, post some links if time. :girlcrazy: :girlcrazy: :girlcrazy:

april 8
what a last few days, since Meadow was blown off , then fell off tree sideways, while walking on limb of tree. The night before , both adults slept with him/her on branch.

He will not return. He has to get stronger and is eating solids again now.

I will post reports as I know them.
SWampy is doing fine. soon he/she will branch

This is by far my best site watch. Great cams and people and eagles. have watched this site for many years.
so now some photos

when both were there
Image
awesome to watch them .
Image
the night he was blown from nest and managed to get to branch( both adults with him/her, but only labelled one
Image
meadow fell to ground

part 2

I always say , there is a reason fo r everything. As it turns out, no broken bones but very emaciated and dehydrated. He had not eaten since blown off. I do believe the adults would have fed him that day. I think they were trying to lure him to nest. He was just in mites and lice etc. Some have better immune systems to help them stay strong. I think Meadow had a weakened immune system. some of us noticed a day and half before he was blown off, that he was not as Rab and sneak an d then eat , eat , eat eat. He seemed more submissive and when meadow had the chance to eat , was not taking it. He did eat, but not like before.
So they drew blood and we shall see what it tells them. We will also fine out if male or female.
God was watching over this nest and intervened . :5val:

so . he will get stronger and then go into flight pens with other eagles. this will be good for Meadow.
To return him here , would put Swampy at risk.

SWampy is the it show now , and of course Abby and Blaze

update on meadow

Patient 192/Meadow: Update
Meadow’s X-rays and bloodwork have been examined by our Raptor Trauma Clinic staff and bloodwork has been sent to our partners at Winter Park Veterinary Hospital for a second look. Though we have not found any breaks or fractures, Meadow is emaciated and dehydrated. Due to the time needed for the eaglet to return to a healthy weight, combined with Meadow’s age, our staff have determined that Meadow cannot be re-nested. Climbing into the tree to re-nest Meadow would pose a risk to the other eaglet (nicknamed Swampy), resulting in a fall and potential injury.
Meadow will need to stay at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey until fledging. Good news: Meadow is now eating solid foods again.
Eaglets require intensive care to regain the strength they need to return to the wild. The average cost to rehabilitate a Bald Eagle is over $5,000. If you would like to contribute to Meadow’s care while the young bird is with us, you can donate at https://act.audubon.org/onlineact.../ar ... UsdFBWdnw2

Iam just home and will do writeup tomorrow.
Swampy did A wee branch yesterday but today, he took a great leap. I know. Meadow is with Swampy, and cheering him/ her on
Chat closed today to give mods and ones who follow nest, time to regroup.
There are nasty people out there.
