Hi folks - I have s'caps on the Hancock forum - http://www.hancockwildlife.org/forum/viewtopic.php?topic=645669#645669 - they all click bigger.  Justice was lowered down; climber is waiting for him to be checked out.  Haven't been to chat - FB and forum is all I can do while at work. Smiley


Added -
Justice was returned to the nest at about 3:00 pm


Adult in and feeding Justice at 3:30 pm

I was taking caps while this was going on.......

2:35  Justice first sees the climber
“Whoa! Who are you?!  You don’t look like an eagle!”  lollol



I was afraid Justice would back up off the nest……..maybe climber thought so too and decided to use the hook



In the bag to be lowered to ground crew…..

ETA 3:38  Hi Shoe and Judy  bigsmile
Judy, glad you got caps, too as they are likely different than mine.
A couple people did recordings as well.

Shoe, those glasses don't work for you either, eh?  lollol
......and yes, I was surprised at how much line there was!

Great pictures, Sherri - thank you!  thumbsup1

They banded him/her at the same time, and took measurements and a blood sample - so in time we may know if Justice is a him or a her!  bigsmile

Patti, afraid we can't blame the fishermen this time.  nope  Apparently it was a large fish and had the line attached to it.
It likely broke away from the fisherman and the eagle caught it.
....... though I'd be quick to think it was line left around.  It makes me crazy when I see it.  

(off topic:You'll be happy to know that Carol (our Kidd/Lola osprey monitor for DEP) and our one and only Thomas, are going to be making a presentation on
monofilament line dangers to wildlife and will be showing how to make a container.  I will be attending and shall take pictures.)

Christine Olsen (MsO on the Hancock forum) posted this picture showing the amount of line that was removed from the nest:



She said it was wrapped around both wings and both feet, so Justice would not have survived without the rescue.


She also said that measurements indicate that Justice is male, though they won't know for sure until they get the results of the blood test.

Wow! thanks for posting that here, Judy.   I know it looked like a lot when he was taking it out of nest,
but didn't think this much.  One lucky little eaglet here.  nod2

I finally just got to Hancock to see your caps.......great ones!
.......and what an awesome picture that he got while at the nest!

I watched him wrapping it around and around ... saw it coming up from the edge of the nest... but also noticed when he picked Justice up it seemed to be attached to him and he had to leave it and a bunch of fluff in Justices' talons as he put him in the bag.  At least that's what it looked like. 

I wonder if anyone noticed what kind of a fish it was.  Although I won't dispute the possibility of the line breaking as the fisherman was catching it ... sometimes people just cut their line and let the fish go if the fish has swallowed the hook.  It's either that or kill the fish trying to get the hook out.  Double edged sword.  I know my husband and I are guilty of it ourselves.  We think we're letting the fish live (or saving our fingers from getting bitten or cut on gills or stingers from cat fish) ... but this can be the outcome of such actions as well.  I know I won't be doing it ever again.  Better to just kill the fish.  Sad

Patti, I didn't see it come in to know what kind of fish it was.......just going by what I read.  Maybe there is
a video out there.  I think they said it came in on Tuesday.
