Hi nerd!  glad you were recording!!  ...... and I love that close up cap!  I missed seeing that.
I tuned it at 5:02 and there she was.....I believe in process!

ETA:  Hi Judy, yep think she was done by then.
Nerd, what time do you think?   I believe it was during the time of my slideshow.

There was a juvenile in the nest that caused quite a commotion!



The other adult chased it off, there was some calling out and I think it has gone now.

Here is a video by birdnerd57
Good Afternoon all,

I recorded a video of the action and it will be uploaded in about a half hour.

June 21, 2014

Sadly, we are once again faced with losing one precious eaglet........"Little"
.........and once again, the same situation as to the parents not coming in to feed and when they did,
the larger eaglet dominated the smaller into submission so that it couldn't get much to eat other than what
it could steal, or what scraps might have been left in the nest.

A parent was last seen on June 19th (I believe) so that now "Big" is in danger of starving if the parents do
not return.
There was a violent attack by Big on Little yesterday afternoon....Little tried hard to defend but didn't have the
strength to do so. crying
Some believe Little may have still been alive through the night but it appears as though he has now passed.

Fly free and soar high with the eagle angels, Little........and know that you were loved by so many people
that had such hope for you.
 love love brokenheart

I am including several videos by JudyB and one from Windy60.  I have also included the link to the start of
yesterday so that you can go back to read the discussion throughout the day.  You can also go backwards from
there to see the days before where there was discussion regarding the lack of food being brought in.
There are also more videos throughout those days as well as many caps.   I am not including the s'caps here as
there are too many and the comments below them along with the discussion and videos tell the story.

Here is the link to the start of the day....

JudyB's Video 10:22 AM
10:22 am
I don't think I've ever seen an eaglet really try to push another out of the nest.  Push each other off food, yes.  But this seemed different.
I have a video that I'm adding for the record, because the behavior is unusual (thank goodness!).

JudyB’s  video same time frame as Windy’s except Judy’s may start a little earlier
Thanks for bringing Windy's video here, ~wildernecss - it's important for the record.  And thanks, windy, for the recording.   group hug
I think my video is the same as Windy's, but may have started a little earlier so I'll include it.  I haven't learned how to add a time stamp, but there are a few pauses when they were still for a while.

JudyB's videos 6:09 PM to 8:36 PM
Reserved for video links - not sure that I'll get them up tonight, but want a place in sequence.  I have 7 videos from 6:09 pm - 8:36 pm.  Most of the activity is in the first four, from 6:09 - 6:58 pm; the others are whenever one of them was active.
Part 1 of 7, 6:09-6:19 pm
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgJapTrHJd0&feature=youtu.be

Part 2 of 7, 6:19-6:29 pm
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeAe6sgRDFc&feature=youtu.be

Part 3 of 7, 6:30-6:46 pm with a 5-minute pause in the middle while each was gripping the other and neither appeared able to move
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DppYutnYS0k&feature=youtu.be

Part 4 of 7, 6:46-6:58 pm - this is mostly Big moving around the nest and doing some flap-hops; Little doesn't move.  The last couple of minutes are both of them lying in the nest.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dN8q_k_LuaU&feature=youtu.be

The next three videos are the aftermath of the fight between the siblings; I wasn't sure if the younger one was still alive, and didn't know if the older had been injured or how badly so I recorded whenever I saw either of them move.  

Part 5 of 7, 7:22-7:25 pm, an 18-minute pause, and 7:43-7:51 pm
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJzEUmdEPOM&feature=youtu.be

Part 6 of 7, 7:52-7:57 pm
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8v9TrFyNR0&feature=youtu.be

Part 7 of 7, 8:26-8:36 pm

June 20, 2014 continued

I am also including a post from JudyB that includes a link to a wonderful article she wrote in January regarding
sibling rivalry

It does seem very strange - I know adults don't visit much when eaglets are this age, but as far as I know, they haven't been calling either.

This is a bit off-topic, but someone was asking about survival rates in general, and this is an article I wrote in January when it looked as if one of the Florida eaglets might succumb to sibling rivalry - Impact of Sibling Rivalry As Seen on Web Cams.  I obviously have no way of knowing what happens at nests without cams - and without cams, observers can tell that not all chicks survive to fledge, but it's not easy to know the reason.

As a quick summary, from 2006 through 2013, there were 399 chicks that hatched on nests I either watch or that have regular reports by observers (most if not all IWS nests), and 339 of those fledged successfully.  Of the 60 that did not, sibling rivalry appeared to be the primary cause in 7 deaths, and was a contributing factor for a couple more, when a much smaller younger eaglet succumbed to bad weather, for instance, in part because the other siblings had feathers.  Some of the ones where we don't know the cause may also have involved rivalry - there were 19 of those - but what we do know of the circumstances makes me think it wasn't a significant factor in most.

Morning everyone. There used to be someone who reported ground observations, I'm not sure who it was, but have there been any comments made or photos anywhere?
