Title: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: AJL on November 15, 2011, 06:46:29 PM
http://www.wildearth.tv/e4k-eagles-01

Eagles4Kids cam information:

The web cam went live in November, 2010. Lucy and Larry are a pair of eagles that live in a cottonwood tree on private land.

Eagles4kids was created through a grant, by third and fourth graders from Blair, Wisconsin. The camera is mounted 4 feet above a bald eagle’s nest, which sits along a trout stream in the farm fields of rural Wisconsin. During non-nesting times the eagles stay in the area, not far from the nest. The nest is five to six feet in diameter and about four feet deep. The students collaborated with the National Eagle Center on the design of the web page. Along with the technology support, the National Eagle Center has created an education partnership with the students at Blair-Taylor Elementary School.

We've learned that the kids are feeling a bit discouraged because their eagles are not nestorating and didn't lay eggs last year.  Please drop by and tell them how much you like their cam and their efforts; they could use the encouragement. ♥  

Images and videos posted in this thread are ©Eagles4Kids, with thanks and best wishes to the kids, their teacher and Lucy and Larry.

We had the cam up this morning while we were chatting and Larry and Lucy were very busy nestorating.  Brought in a lot of sticks and moved one large branchy stick all around the nest and finally it pretty much went over the side.  We were all thrilled because we knew the children would be happy to see the eagle pair busily working.

Sparkie, the video is so heart-warming!  The kids must be jumping up and down!  Lucy's feathers cross over one another the way that Mom Hornby's do and Larry is 'dressed' almost like Dad Hornby!   :thumbup:

The nest seems somewhat smaller than than the Hornby nest, but it may be newer, too.  Hope we'll see one or two chicks there next year!   :nod2

I am enjoying watching your video clips of the eagles.  I teach in Oostburg, WI - it is close to Sheboygan.  I live in Port Washington.  For 3 years I have been watching the Hornby eagles on Hornby Island in British Columbia.  Unfortunately early in my beginning science teaching about the eagles this year they returned to begin their nestorization...the camera was shut off permanently.

I promised my students before I returned from my sick leave I would find them a nest for us to study this year.  Last year my class did journaling and we had ourselves on a forum just for our school so my students could ask questions and someone would write back the answer to them.  This was very exciting to my class.

Does your class do anything like that?   The Hornby eagles last year had two eaglets that fledged!  How exciting except the kids needed to watch this from home as it was in the summer when they left the nest.  Most of the kids were watching the nest at home.  At the end of the year my students found this to be one of the best activities we did.

Love looking at the eagles.  Thanks. JP

JP, I hope you are doing better!   It's nice to 'see' you here!

Have you checked out the Eagles4Kds cam and Facebook page?  There is a link on their cam page.  It's a wonderful activity for them and anyone who watches 'their' eagles!

Hi there,
I will try and post some videos as I do them. I am one of the project partners for E4K. We are extremely excited about the prospects for the upcoming nesting season. Larry and Lucy have been busier than last year at this time. This may be due to the milder weather that we are experiencing. Last year we were buried in snow and it was extremely cold. I am happy to add updates as I get them.

Welcome to the Forum, talon!  

Many of us here in the forum (and on Facebook) are following Lucy & Larry and hoping that they do nest this year. Would they be on the same schedule as the Decorah, Iowa, eagles?  I think I saw on your Facebook page that you had a picture of Lucy and a couple of youngsters that you thought might include one of the Decorahs.

Thank you for joining us here, and if you have any questions about the forum, please ask ~ we will be more than happy to help.

Hi Talon - nice to meet you and thank you for the updates.  This is a great project and hope for a great nesting year for all involved and for the kids.

Post by: talon on December 28, 2011, 07:03:46 AM
Thank you for the welcome! We can only speculate on what eagle i was in the field with Lucy and a sub adult. Fun to speculate though. The tracking map had E1D1 so close to our nest too.

Larry and Lucy made yet another visit this morning. Here is a video for those that missed it. This was the fifth day in a row that we saw one or both on camera. We would be on the same schedule as Decorah. We might go into March before the first egg, but this is our first time watching with a camera to document that event.

Well, we have had to endure some patience the last few days. WildEarth has been working on restoring our live feed. They have had several issues. The weather delivered a high of 52 degrees today and it was beautiful. So to keep with that theme, I thought I would attach a picture I took using our Axis Software. It was an awesome sunset tonight!

I've seen them on cam but the stream has been so bad that I couldn't post anything. Lucky the squirrel was in with his friend Buddy this afternoon. Larry made a late day visit too. I saw both on my way home from school. One was in their second favorite tree while the other was across the highway eating from a dead deer carcass.

They like deer meat and there should be more than enough for both of them!  I hope the deer carcass isn't still on the road, for the safety of the eagles.   Thanks for the update, Talon.

Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy

Good question.I have not seen any. However, that does not mean they do not exist. See, unlike Decorah, we do not run an IR on this cam. That is something we are considering for next season along with sound. We just need eggs this year for this project to continue.

I saw that visit!  Larry left half-way through and went to pick up some grass for the nest - Nice fly-in by Larry at 2 minutes into the video.

Before the visit, a nice cup-shaped bowl was evident

When I looked in at 8:30 AM (nest time), Lucy was there, then Larry arrived with a stick. He left around 8:50 but came back again (with another stick, I think - I had looked away and missed his actual arrival).


9 AM  - Both eagles worked at stick placement and now have been standing around, occasionally beaking each other (gently).

9:05-ish Lucy left and returned with a small stick.  By 9:08, both had left the nest.

This is really a beautiful nest to watch, and the eagles are very endearing. They will have beautiful bobbleheads!

The nest was empty when I first looked this morning, but Lucy is there now, eating something (8:20 AM).


Larry arrives with a stick (8:24)

Lucy is working on the nest bowl, while Larry stands to one side watching her.  She is already holding her toes in that soft, limp way that eagles have when they approach an egg.

I got a couple of videos myself this morning. Lucy was on nest and it was pitch dark .I watched her for quite awhile . Looked like she spent the night in the nest . I was really waiting for her to get up . I thought we might find an egg .  So did larry when he cam to investigate. I guess it was just a dress rehearsal .

In this one Larry is very attentive to her  after bringing her a stick .

Sparkie, I agree. Larry looked like he expected an egg. I also thought the other times this morning looked like we could have been in for a great day. Not to be. It will happen when nature wants it to happen. They are ready though.

Post by: NancyM on February 14, 2012, 08:14:48 PM
This is such interesting behavior!  Thanks for the video.

Those of us who followed the Hornby pair closely documented Dad delivering as many as 50 gifts of food to Mom up through the time she laid her eggs. Mom needs to know that Dad will deliver enough food to sustain her during incubation and then enough to feed the little chicks. Each pair is a little different, but Lucy might just be claiming what is hers.
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: talon on February 15, 2012, 10:02:16 AM
Nancy, that is a very interesting observation. I will pass this on to the kids.
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: NancyM on February 15, 2012, 11:29:40 AM
talon, we actually documented this behavior by the Hornby pair two years in a row.  The number of gifts  (50-ish) brought to the nest was just about the same in both years. Dad started bringing 1 or 2 in December and then the rate increased in February and March (that pair usually lays eggs in late March). We often saw Dad fly in to the nest with the gift, followed closely by Mom, who had a very distinctive call for the situation.

Do you teachers have the book The Bald Eagle: Haunts and Habits of a Wilderness Monarch
by Jon M. Gerrard and Gary R. Bortolotti  (published in 1988 and available new or used through Amazon.com).  It is listed on our website FAQ page (http://www.hornbyeagles.com/eaglefaq.htm (http://www.hornbyeagles.com/eaglefaq.htm)) as one of a few that we recommend. Lots of interesting info to be found in that book.

Yes, Dad Hornby did not stay around to eat the gifts he gave to Mom Hornby.   It seemed as if they were for her as his proof that he was a good provider.   :ecsmile

Same question for Lucy's behavior at 2:10 into this video!

I got these screencaps during that "behavior" - I hear this is Lucy's bonding behavior?

Gotcha beat, talon!  I use Hypersnap and just have to hold down one button to take screencaps    :eclol

Larry and Lucy appear to be a well-kept secret.  WildEarth does not link to Ustream for them, but continue to list some cameras that are not operating this year (Hancock Sidney cam, for example.) I'm sure you'd get a lot more exposure if you were listed in WE's banner on Ustream.


Thanks for the cover on the video that gives the time of the visit, since Ustream does not show that.

talon, you mentioned in the Ustream chat that you had seen many eagles congregated across the road (I think within Lucy's territory?) and that there was a road kill deer there.  I would guess that Lucy did not like all the "intruders" and was telling them to stay away from her nest.

She (I think it was Lucy) was just there for a few minutes, around 5:50 nest time.

  crayj on chat corrected me- it was Larry
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: talon on February 17, 2012, 06:09:37 PM
Yes, it was Larry. I checked the archive on WE. Most likely it will take a few days for the eagles to move on. Hopefully Larry and Lucy can tolerate this.

All for now, I just watched Mom Decorah lay her 1st egg. Yes! Going back. She looks exhausted.

many thanks, talon - I have not been able to watch today so am glad to see the pictures and videos.

What is the balcony? I'm guessing it is a large branch above the nest.  I believe I saw some pictures on your website that showed more of the tree where the nest is (but nothing labeled).

WOW, what a morning. They were on the nest just after 6 AM. Visit last apprx. 45 minutes. Then another visit around 8. This lasted over an hour, plus we saw on camera our 1st mating.

Lucy has been interested for a long time and I am sure it wasn't their 1st. Actually I got a ground report this week of another mating on Wednesday.

Larry also brings in a small tree that would make any eagle proud! This is a must see and I cut down over a hour of video to manageable video.

Larry brought in a cornstalk at 4:48.

Someone posted on our facebook page a question. The question is do eagles lay eggs mostly at night? What does the research say about this? I'm thinking they do.

In a recent Norfolk blog post, the dancing display seen here by Lucy is explained as a display of dominance of the female at the Norfolk nest.  I was struck by how similar the screen caps are. 

http://eaglenest.blogs.wm.edu/2012/02/20/dominance-female-over-male/

Maybe dad Norfolk needs the dominance dance to keep him in check  :biggrin6  And Larry needs the courtship dance to get him in the mood  :eclove 
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: NancyM on February 22, 2012, 01:48:24 PM
basenjimom!  Thanks for that link (I had missed that Norfolk blog post).  A dominance dance!

I'm not sure I have seen this behavior before this year - and now Norfolk, Decorah, and Lucy all show it.  Mom Hornby beaks Dad Hornby a lot, but did she ever wing him like that? Must ask booni and AJL.
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: basenjimom on February 22, 2012, 02:43:46 PM
I can't remember ever seeing it @ Hornby either. Perhaps some bonded pairs perform /display off the nest, or not at all. 

I've been wondering if the displays we are seeing are just...
1).. "new" to us as we expand our collective interests to other nests.  Maybe we've been too nest-centric?
2).. atypical in nature but now seen occasionally because of web cams?
3).. typical for the lower states, but not seen in other areas because nest habitat is stable?
4).. seen more in some areas because competition for mature, reliable mates is greater due to lower population of breeding age adults?

Perhaps I'll ask at Norfolk to see what they think so we have an additional opinion.  What do you think?

Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: NancyM on February 22, 2012, 02:52:29 PM
basenjimom, good idea to gather more information.  I have watched several nests since 2006 and have never seen or heard of this behavior (not to say that it was not displayed, I just never saw it or recognized it).

Or, perhaps the interpretation differs among regional "experts"? At Hornby, we documented Dad presenting Mom with "gifts" but elsewhere people have said the female is stealing the male's food.  (At this nest, I think Larry is bringing gifts, but talon thinks Lucy should share)

Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: sparkie on February 22, 2012, 02:55:35 PM
I have not seen this behavior before either . I am rather intrigued by it . I was not even going to the dominant female attitude . You Have given my something to think about.

Lucy comes in first. She settles in the nest bowl. Larry arrives. Lucy does the wag again. He doesn't seem interested. Maybe he was worn out with off cam romantic moments. Starting to get worried. I know, stay positive. I keep telling myself that, BUT...

Thanks, Sparkie!  This is a beautiful nest, the light is always so glorious here.  Sometimes the image is all pixel-y but it makes the scene look like a watercolor painting.

I *think* this is Lucy (or else it is Larry!) leaving at just before 10 AM.  The eggs were visible for a couple of minutes, then Larry came in and is now on the nest.

There is a fluffy stuck on the nest at 7 O'clock position. It moves around like something live. Thought there was a chick moving at first.  :mhihi

Impressive wing span as the parent lifts up. Nice example of temperature regulating perhaps or perhaps just needed a position change. :ecsmile

TY talon, that's amazing.  It's so perfect in it's detail it almost looks like a painting!!  The more you look, the more you see.

Good learning photo for school kids.  They can measure on the floor how big the nest is estimated to be, but perspective of how big the wing span is, is a priceless teaching tool.  (They can look so much smaller on cam) Those wings stretch well beyond the diameter of the nest. 

Great scap.

That's it! I have fished this stream all my life and there are some big suckers in there. I hope they fish them all out!

I checked the cam this morning and was told by the E4K chatters that the chick has hatched!!!!!!!!!!  Have not seen it yet - Larry brought Mom a huge sucker fish and she is sitting there looking at it (and hiding the hatchling).

I was hoping to see the hatchling this morning, but Lucy did not even want to show Larry!  He covered up the fish, then approached her but she snapped at him - he took off a few minutes later. This was around 10 AM, nest time.

WOO~!

I was just reading E4K's Facebook page, and there is a video that Lasher (Crayj) made ...   keep your eye on the egg - right at 6 minutes into the video, a pip appears!

Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: NancyM on April 08, 2012, 04:27:56 PM
(I'm glad you agree that was a pip!)

There are never any times recorded with these videos, so I don't know - perhaps talon or lasher will be able to say.

Did you watch the start of the video? Chicklet tried to catch a floating down feather (and succeeded). This must be a new Lucy - she eats more than she feeds. I'm sure she will catch on soon, tho, with Larry's example to follow.

Fascinating behaviours.  I wish we could hear their communications while they're doing this.

A few identifiers:
At least for now Lucy has a 'freckle' on a tail feather that is left of centre.
Larry's feet are a more intense gold than Lucy's; hers are pale.  Her middle toes are extremely long.
At times you can see a 'freckle' on Larry's forehead region.

There was a good view of the new hatchling when I checked this afternoon.  Parent gets up and starts a feeding.  Don't think the new chick was ready to feed, but very active and aware!

(http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc103/takecare_2007/Eagle%20nests/E4K-251-Apr1012.jpg)
Parent goes over to fish at side of nest.  Both chicks alert and interested.

(http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc103/takecare_2007/Eagle%20nests/E4K-253-Apr1012.jpg)
Feeding commences.

Good view of little one!

(http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc103/takecare_2007/Eagle%20nests/E4K-302-Apr1012.jpg)
Little one is 'zonked out' and first one is no longer interested in offerings - feeding ends.

Dad Larry did not even flinch!  But he did seem to take a gentle retaliation later on.

So, Luke is the older one?   For some reason I thought Lilly was the first hatched.  Either way, both are looking healthy and obviously eating well (based on thier poopshots)

We will do what we can tomorrow. We are working the problem from the power source back to the cam. Hopefully, it is the injector and we can replace it tomorrow after school. If it is not the injector we are in trouble. The power box is fine, and the modem was fine. As I stated the next in line is the injector. After that it is the cam itself. I wish I had better news. It won't be until 3:45 tomorrow.

June 26 -  one eaglet (Lily)  "dropped out of sight" over the edge of the nest  and was declared officially fledged - s/he returned to the nest within a day or so.

I am not sure when Luke fledged, but both have visited the nest a couple of times since fledging.

E4K would like to thank all for a great season. Due to the generosity of so many, the kids were able to raise the funds for new equipment for the third season. We are approaching the end of this season, and want to communicate to you our gratitude. Ek4 will be officially shutting down the operation of the camera the evening of July 31st. We are in the planning stages for next season and have huge hopes that with the new camera we will bring to you a wonderful opportunity not only to see, but hear the eagles/eaglets in action. Be ready to turn your volume down. :) Again, thank you so much for joining us in the learning opportunity that this project gives us.

Post by: NancyM on December 03, 2012, 11:38:39 AM
In recent days, it has become clear that Lucy has an injury to her right foot (and possibly both feet).  There has been a plan put in place by the E4K teachers, involving the USFWD, National Eagle Center (NEC), and REGI (Marge Gibson's rehab group in Antigo, WI).


NEC posted Nov 26 on their Facebook page  
https://www.facebook.com/TheNationalEagleCenter (https://www.facebook.com/TheNationalEagleCenter)

While there seems to be something going on with her right foot, she is still eating and flying well. Any intervention with these wild eagles, including offering them food, would require state and federal permits. If it is determined that needs to happen, we are prepared to help get those plans in motion.

and

The relevant state and federal agencies have been pretty willing to move quickly in circumstances like these in the past. If we need to move forward with some intervention, we will allow the appropriate time for all the legal measures.


The most recent post (Dec 3)

The National Eagle Center continues to be in touch with Eagles4Kids in regards to Lucy’s condition. After reviewing the most recent photos and video of Lucy, a plan is underway to capture Lucy in order assess the apparent injury to her foot. While we have had views of Lucy via video, we really won’t know what is going on with her until we can examine her physically.

We are asking that people please give space for this plan to work. In order to be successful, the area around the nest must remain undisturbed, with no increase in human activity in Lucy’s territory. Our goal is for Lucy to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible throughout the process. We know that many want to check on these Lucy and Larry in person, but ask that you please avoid the nest area until we have completed our work. The streaming video from the nest continues, and if Lucy or Larry returns to the nest, viewers will be the first to know.

We have experience with the safe and efficient capture and release of eagles in our work on the Golden Eagle Project. We are working with a raptor trapping specialist and wildlife rehabilitator to ensure the health and safety of Lucy throughout the process. If upon closer examination, it is determined that Lucy requires medical attention, she will be immediately transported to Raptor Education Group, Inc. (REGI). Marge Gibson and REGI have more than 40 years experience with bald eagle rehabilitation.

While we cannot know the outcome of this process now, it seems clear that we must intervene on Lucy’s behalf, if only to determine what may have happened to her. An eagle’s healthy feet and talons are critical to their ability to survive. We will do our best to keep people informed about the project as it continues. All of the partners involved in this project share the goal of a safe and efficient rehabilitation and release back to the wild for Lucy and all injured wildlife.

Thanks to everyone for your care and concern for Lucy and all wild eagles.

Lucy still has not been trapped.  today she visited the nest and priscillash1 posted a video.  near the end, you can see Lucy's right foot as she prepares to leave.  It is hard to tell what is happening with her foot, but it seems there is still a real problem.

Official Press Release For Project Lucy


As many of you have seen, Lucy has returned to the nest for significant time in the last few days. We have been watching closely since we first suspected in late November that she might have an injury to her foot. These recent visits to the nest since Sunday (12/16/12) have given us the opportunity for some very close up examination of her feet. Using the PTZ camera to get clear views of her feet has allowed us to draw some conclusions about her condition that we were unable to do up to now.

What we have seen does not look good. In these images it is clear that the toes of the right foot are dead tissue. This is something we suspected might be the case back in November when we had only glimpses of what appeared to be gray or missing toes. Since at that time we could not be certain of the extent of injury from those first images, we embarked on a project to try to capture Lucy in order to examine and evaluate her condition. Despite being prepared to capture her at one of three sites in the area, we have been unable to capture Lucy, as she remains able to fly. We have continued to keep track of her as much as possible through direct observation. We have continued to see both Lucy, and her mate Larry, in the area of the nest. Sunday 12/16/12 was the first time she returned to the nest and we were able to capture enough close images of her feet to draw conclusions about her condition.

After thorough expert review of the video and still photo images, we have determined that there is no treatment available for Lucy. It is not possible to repair tissue that has died. As noted above, it is likely that even when we first suspected something was wrong, the tissue was already dead. In all likelihood, the injury occurred some months in advance of our first suspecting something was wrong, perhaps as early as August or September. Due to the time of year, in the fall of the year, Lucy simply was not regularly present in the nest. Consequently, we did not become aware of the injury until the toes had already died. Even had we been able to capture her at our first indication of injury, there is no treatment that could have saved her toes. As discussed in previous posts, an eagle’s toes and feet are critical to her survival. Not only are healthy feet vital for hunting, but as perching birds, eagles spend much of their time on their feet. Injuries to the feet are devastating for birds of prey.

The team that assembled to attempt to determine what happened to Lucy, and if possible capture and evaluate her, has determined that a capture is no longer the best option. Since there is no available treatment for Lucy, a capture is an unnecessary intrusion into the life of this wild bird. If we were able to examine her in person, we might find some clue as to what the cause of injury might be, but knowing we cannot save her foot makes the risks of capture for Lucy far greater than any advantage for her. Without treatment options to repair the damage to her foot, she would be left with one foot which is an untenable condition for any large bird. For Lucy, or any bird with the extent of injuries that Lucy exhibits, if she were to come into human care, the most likely outcome would almost certainly be euthanasia.

We have decided against this course for several reasons. First, we do not have reason to believe that Lucy is in pain. Dead tissue is not painful. The toes on her right foot are dead. We have also observed some swelling on her left foot, likely as result of her having to compensate, using the left foot to support most of her weight for many weeks. It is difficult to know whether this is painful for her, but based on her behavior, she is not in severe distress. Lucy continues to fly, eat, defecate and preen. These are all good signs of her overall well-being. Somehow, she is managing despite these serious impairments and adapting to her disability.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely. If Lucy’s condition deteriorates to the point that she is in severe distress, or is on the ground and cannot fly, we would move in to assist her. If Lucy were completely unable to manage, she could not have survived this long. Somehow she has adapted to her new abilities. It is at least possible that she could breed. A female eagle spends many months on the nest, without having to perch or hunt, as the male supplies most of the food for the family.

We have no desire to create a false hope. Lucy’s condition is dire. In all likelihood, the toes on her right foot will soon drop off. Again, they are dead tissue and have been dead for some time. There is no pain associated with dead tissue. Although she has managed for sometime following this injury, she may not be able to do so much longer. Winter is a difficult time even for healthy wildlife. Food is scarce and weather conditions test even a vigorous animal’s strength. Due to her limitations, Lucy will likely be eating more carrion, which will increase her risk of exposure to lead, a common cause of death in wild eagles. Lucy may not survive the winter.

Eagles4Kids will continue to stream video from the nest camera. Wildlife cams offer us an opportunity to view the life of eagles and other species as never before. As educators, we all believe that whatever the outcome for Lucy, ultimately, we will learn something. Life for eagles and all wild species is precarious. In the first season of Eagles4Kids, students and viewers learned a difficult lesson after the original female at the nest disappeared before laying eggs and no young were produced that year. However, we saw the perseverance of nature when Lucy and Larry successfully fledged two young last year. We are already learning that wild animals can adapt in ways that seem impossible to us. So, these eagles we have become so attached to may yet have something to teach us from this current situation.

We are grateful to everyone for their care and concern for Lucy and all wildlife. We, like all of you, care about Lucy as an individual bird. But we also recognize our limitations. Even though we may wish we could help her, we know that there’s nothing to be done right now.

We especially thank you for your patience. This process has been complex, time-consuming and at times heart wrenching. Each of the partners, all of whom have volunteered their time to this project, have needed to carefully evaluate the information, discuss and decide on next steps. We know that has meant that often the viewer, those of you so engaged with Lucy throughout these recent web cam seasons, have been left wondering what was happening. We have done our best to update everyone along the way. We are committed to communicating openly and honestly about this process, but at times kept the process private so that each of the partners could do their best work. We will do our best to share with you at this time the images and information we used to come to these conclusions. Thank you for your continued patience and care.

Very sad re: Lucy's feet.  She has been resilient and no one knows if Larry and Lucy might be able to produce a clutch this year or not. A lesson re: lead is being learned also thru them as it is being taught that lead in carrion would be a further threat to her. So even thru Lucy's difficult time she is teaching.

Anyone wanting to know more about lead and how to hunt or fish without lead; we have a topic here that includes information on that here

There was a picture recently of Lucy and Larry standing in the snow on the nest. Is there a reason that no one has said frost bite could be the cause of Lucy's foot injury? Seems like a reasonable possibility.  :puzzled2

Post by: talon on February 12, 2013, 08:31:48 PM
Hi all, it has been quite sometime that I have posted here. I took on the responsibility of this project this year. I have been in it since its inception. Mr. Lawrence however left for a different position and I was the only one left. It has been full of trials and not much tribulation until the past 1 1/2 really. Larry has been very busy. I seriously did not think there was any chance of eggs this year and really did not care about anything else but Lucy's health. I brought another deer in today after school on my way home. I have permission from the DNR as long as I call them to let them know.

EMC, there is no chance that Lucy's injury was due to frostbite. She may have indeed experienced frostbite since er talons fell off but not before that. The injury happened several months ago and possibly as early as late Sept. to October. We noticed there was a problem as early as November 16th if I remember correctly. Many of the trials early were getting the cams streaming properly. We had many issues with the addition of the new cam. My theory as well as several others in the field is this was a result of a trap. Could it have been electrical, yes. Could it have been that something like fishing line got wrapped around, yes. However with the injury line where it was and the line of dead tissue across the tarsus lead to the theory of a trap. However, it doesn't really matter, all of these are the result of people.

We indeed could be watching a miracle in the making here! There is no real biological explanation for how she is able to adapt and survive as well as she has. She perched last week for 30 minutes with Larry, and then for another hour on the edge of the nest. Why did she do that? I have no explanation why she would perch on the edge when all we have seen before was her coming to the nest and rest. She has been sleeping in the nest at night as another adaptation. She is smart.

I hope you all tune in to see the miracle we are witnessing. Larry has the nest in order in just about a week. Stick deliveries have been fast and furious. I forgot to mention, L & L had play mated on the nest in the last 2 weeks as well. It floored me. Before that, I said there was NO chance here, and today I say it is 50/50 only because I am conservative. It is probably better than that. Stay tuned folks, and I will try and remember your forum more often. I do get very busy with teaching and monitoring the situation and answering emails, etc.

Larry came in at 6:43 this morning. Lucy was on the nest all night relaxing. He left after working on the nest bowl area. She stayed and appeared to have several crop drops. He came back around 8:30 with a monster stick. He scooted her out of the bowl again and worked some more. She finally left, and he followed shortly after. I will try and attach a pic of one of her crop drops. I encourage you, if you have facebook, like the eagles4kids.com page as I update there with pics and videos too. Thanks for your interest.

Lucy seems to be doing well - but I do hope she "decides" to take a year off from raising eaglets. Her overly stressed body needs a rest (imo).

What are the children thinking/saying about this situation?
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: talon on March 04, 2013, 06:26:57 PM
Of course the students want to see an egg. They would be ok with one. I have also told them that things may not work out and that if her body is not up to it and the stress has been too much for her it doesn't matter how much Larry and Lucy want eggs, it just won't happen. Eagle pairs prepare no matter what but we wait.
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: NancyM on March 04, 2013, 06:56:42 PM
thanks, talon - I am wondering, though, what the children think of Lucy's injury, what might have happened, what it means for her (and Larry), how injuries might be prevented, etc

this is an unusual situation, and one that has lots of potential for teaching many lessons. 

oh, and I wonder if you could get Marge from REGI to speak to your class?

I admire you for taking over this project, your heart is clearly in it. Good work!

I don't know whether to celebrate Lucy's strength or mourn for her as an exploited female.

I need to clarify this comment.

In no way did I mean to imply that anyone is exploiting Lucy.  Far from it, Talon has done so much to keep Lucy supplied with food and has clearly sought the very best for her. He has also brought several lessons to his classroom - what an education these young people are getting!

I think the word I should have chosen is "stressed" rather than exploited.

In other times and circumstances, females who have been physically stressed - through injury or other circumstances - stop being able to reproduce. I am very surprised that the stress to Lucy's body has not caused her reproductive functions to shut down for this season - perhaps the stress  was not severe enough to overcome her innate biological need to reproduce(?)

Many thanks to Talon for keeping this project going and for keeping us all updated on Lucy's progress. May you and the eagles  "live long and prosper"

Is there any plan in place to look for traps in the area and try to get them removed?
Title: Re: Eagles4Kids Eagle Cam: Larry and Lucy
Post by: talon on April 29, 2013, 04:12:47 PM

Thank you for your kind words. As far as traps, they are legal as long as they are during the trapping season, and they follow the laws. Most trappers are very good about camouflaging a trap. They do not stick out so knowing where they are is next to impossible. We only hope that people will follow the laws.

I have a hard time remembering if it was because the temps have been on a roller coaster.

Last week I did video of them across the highway doing there thing. Tonight I was privileged to do the same. At first, I found Larry perched and ready for take off across the highway. After some soaring overhead, he called Lucy. I had no idea she was up there or how high she was. She was way up and too high for me to find her with the camera, and she was with another eagle. When Larry called, it didn't take her long to bullet down. A hawk appeared to come into the picture too. It looked like Lucy did a barrel roll over the other bird at some point. It was such fun to watch. I just wished I could have stayed longer.

Sorry, I resorted to copying a link, as I could not get it to attach correctly with youtube.

talon,

It is nice to see how well Lucy is doing - and how you care about and watch her to be sure she is OK.

Thanks for the many videos!

The both finally showed up early this morning.

#Invalid YouTube Link#

The video showed up for me in the preview but came up invalid like it always does for me. I know someone will fix it for me. I appreciate that.

For now, here is the link to the kids' page.
