Petra: The fact that you show obvious care for the eaglet's welfare is wonderful. Now if I could offer some advice for you and others that might "over worry" for the birds' welfare. The people working with these birds have the upmost respect and interest in the birds welfare. To be successful they must have that level of commitment. Being gentle and calm is very important to reduce stress to these wild birds. Occasionally firmness is also needed with speed to prevent injury to the birds and themselves. But often with raptors patients and calm is best.

You will also find that patients and calmness usually keeps viewers calm. You can assist greatly in the experience of viewers to this site by practicing faith in the people presenting this site and the field workers, biologists and technicians doing their jobs with the highest level of professionalism.

There are many more days of viewing and talking about these birds ahead. Some will contain greater levels of risk to the birds than others. This is nature at work with us humans attempting to assist when possible and learn. Part of the journey involves risk and danger. That is life. So if you can assist by showing others the value of patients and calmness that effort won't go unrewarded.

Enjoy the experience and I look forward to your new role as well as your questions. Bill :)

Also wondering if the parents will not abandon him because of this branding? Thanks for any help.

To be slightly picky the process is called banding not branding. Although banding is perminent it is certainly not a disfigurement of the eaglets (or other birds) foot.

The tagging does involve an invasive process but has been in practice for many years. It will not impead any flight capabilities as exampled by many other Balds success and those of A49's parents which are tagged. The parents have a very stong bond to their territory, the nest tree and the eaglets these above process is not normally sufficient cause for abandonment. The adults have seen taggs on their mates and will possibly be slightly uneasy about the "change" in their eaglet there are other factor that will far outweigh refusal to continue to care for the eaglet. Unique voice recongnition in itself would be a huge supporter of the bond between A49 and his parents.

Petra: We all often react with our "beaks" when maybe our minds are better capable of dealing with the issue. :lol: I am not familiar with any sea eagle species in the Netherlands but look forward to hearing more about them from you. Bill :)

I'm watching from Carpinteria CA...just across the Santa Barbara Channel.

Thank you Raptorman for all the useful info that you've provided not only on this site but the Victoria/Sidney site as well.

Many thanks to all the folks involved in presenting this live cam. What a wonderful opportunity to see the hatchling developing in it's environment. I for one am glad to see the restoration of these as well as other large birds to Southern California. The caring efforts of so few can really make a difference.

I've learned a lot and have developed a greater appreciation for these beautiful creatures.

I have seen many references (on this board and others) to other eagle web cams in the world (Sidney?). How can I go about getting the URLs or links to these other eagle cams as well?
Thanks

Hi ElaineRuth:

Eagle Eye Cam
If for some reason your links are disabled, here is the site address: http://www.infotecbusinesssystems.com/wildlife/default.asp

This is a great site located in the Victoria BC area. I used the reference on the web cam page (Victoria/Sidney), however after further digging the actual location of the nest is Saanich, Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada. This is the 2nd nest they set up, the first nest failed to hatch.

Check out the Forum under Eagle Discussion, you will find a sticky called Ask Raptorman and others???. It's loaded with great information. Settle down with a big cup of coffee, you'll spend hours reading! B)

There are 2 hatchlings in this nest. A lot of observations and commentary have been made on the behavior of these birds as siblings. Very interesting!

http://www.eaglecam.org/ This one has links to Maine and Massachusetts nests along with Peregrine Falcons in Pennsylvania and others... There are 5 Falcon young and they are a noisy bunch who will soon be fledging!

http://www.lbv-eichstaett.de/storch/cam/storchcam2.htm Stork nest in Bavaria...

http://www.storchennest.de/en/index_live-video.html Stork nest in Germany (these parents lost both of their natural hatchlings recently but are now fostering another who lost one of its parents to an auto collision and the other parent would not have been able to care for it alone)....

Hope these links help and that I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here.... Please delete this post if I am! :)

No stepping as far as I'm concerned! We're all nature and animal lovers here, and the more links to interesting sites, the better! Once these message boards get up and running and more people learn about them, the more topics there are and it's hard to know just where to speak what's on your mind and post what's pertinent info in the correct spot! So wherever I happenstance on something interesting or helpful, I'm just happy I found it! Thanks for the links...going stork watching right now! Becki

I have been watching this little guy for quite some time and watching kids at http://www.nwf.org/wildlife/baldeagle/webcam.cfm grow as well.

Each time the nwf kids would argue, you couldn't help but be glad they had each other for company. Felt kinda bad this little one was alone. On the other hand, that sibling rivalry...well its for the birds !

Thank you all for making this possible :)

Many eaglets because of hatchability issues as well as fratricide/siblicide are without a nestmate. Just like many humans don't have siblings. I'm not sure it is cause for pity. Under certain conditions nature dictates the rate of survival. Bill :)
