Gosh I love you gals..... thank you from the bottom of my heart...... when I seen those bugs, he looked thin also and the fact that you could get so close to him..... well I was so glad that you rescued him.... it was time.  I am so thankful for what you are doing. He is in good hands now along with Niner and Brig.... one day you will reap the rewards by seeing them release on Hornby.... free and soaring like eagle should.  It will make you so proud and us too!!!!

Can't thank you enough... :heart, you are such a great team!!!!!!

The Eagle Ladies of the HEART Team!  Boots on the ground do it again.  This is a memorable year for you, the eagles of Hornby and Doug and Sheila.  The challenges are many, but you all seem ready to tackle them and do it VERY well!   :eclove

This story is so different from the last one...and it isn't over yet!   :eceek

Thank you from the bottom of my  :heart

The play-by-play is sooooo appreciated.  It's like we are there with you, cheering you on, ready to lend a hand.
Great job team!
You all are to be commended too for observing, to make sure a rescue is really needed, or not.

If Decker was healthy and strong and ready to be on his own, you would not have been able to catch him. 

Perhaps he fledged prematurely and the ground is not the easiest place to learn to get elevation on first flights.

You make a great team!

winterwren, many thanks for telling us how you and Booni were able to rescue 'Decker' for transport.  I am so pleased you were able to get him off the island last evening. And Dan went along for the ride. What a wonderful team of caring people.

I just found this video Doug took last evening (Aug. 16 about 5:40 pm) of winterwren Feeding Fishead to Decker. Shortened broadcast so not all of the video is recorded.

Oh my gosh!!! I am bawling! That baby is so hungry! Thank you all. Those are some amazing talons huh? He's so thin. I am hoping to hear good things about his survival.  :heart

Again a reminder... the camera that Doug has been using elongates everything, stretches the image vertically. The eaglet is not THAT thin... I'll be posting some more photos and maybe a video clip as soon as I can catch my breath. Booni took some nice shots last night, too.

WOW.  Winterwren, Booni, Doug... you guys rock!  The eaglets of Hornby are lucky to have such caring folks to live among.  :eclove

I do have a question.  I am not sure if there are 2 fledged eaglets plus Decker or if the "2 eaglets" included Decker.  If there were three eaglets, perhaps lack of food may have been an issue with Decker?
