ND16 fledged. Today was her first return to the nest. It was way too crowded with three of them there vying for prey this morning and afternoon. Thank you to ‘H’ who alerted me to this incident.
At 15:45:12, Little Bit 17 went out of the nest backwards. That is ND16 closest to him. You can make up your own mind if 16 forced Little Bit off the nest.
The remaining bit of the nest could just not handle having 3 eaglets.
Little Bit 17 was believed to be seen flying on the wide angle cam at 15:45:35.
Meanwhile 15 and 16 are on the nest and one of them, I believe 15, is eating.
Send the most positive wishes you can for our Little Bit. I sure hope he is found if he is down. There should be a team looking right now.
Thanks to the ND-LEEF for their streaming cam where I took my screen shot and video clip.
