Since there are two nests being discussed in this topic, I can't get what is happening where?

Can someone give info on both in one post?

Video:  Delta 2 Eaglet Falls from Nest

During the night or very early morning, one of the eaglets, Oreo, fell from the nest.

Later, a viewer watching the cam noticed an eaglet was missing and made a call to staff at Hancock Wildlife Foundation, who alerted Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society. O.W.L. picked him up. He's a little thin but seems to be OK. A thorough exam will follow after the eaglet has some quiet time.

Lunch is delivered to the remaining eaglet, Jet. He immediately mantles his food (to make sure his parent doesn't take it away!) and continues to squeal. The parent may be in the tree. Shortly after this clip, he began to eat his food.

The eaglets have been named Jet and Oreo.

Here is the latest update from Bev Day.

Oreo is a MALE
He weighs just over 3 kg. (6.61 lbs)
A few worms showed in his fecal sample so he was treated for that.
He is showing good muscle mass even though he was a tad underweight.
He has no injuries of any kind.
He will be kept inside tonight and once he eats on his own he will be moved in with "Daddy" who will be his foster buddy.

Video:  Farewell Delta OWL Bald Eagles 2011

The time has come to say goodbye to these eagles.  Madam laid two eggs in 2009, but they failed to hatch (not uncommon for a young pair).

This nest was completely destroyed by wind in early 2010.
In September, David Hancock cleaned and refurbished the cameras and shored up the nest with reinforcing. Two more eggs were laid in Spring, 2011, but they, too, did not hatch.  After the eagles stopped incubating the eggs, the cams were turned off.

We hope these loyal and persevering eagle pair will be successful in 2012.

Haliaeetus leucocephalus

1st egg: 3/10
2nd egg 3/14
Eggs did not hatch
