NBG Eaglets, May 4

2:20 p.m.

Today marks one-week since the eaglets arrived at the Center -- and life as we know it changed!  All three eaglets are doing well today. There seems to be some "playing" in between naps -- the eaglets appear to be enjoying some sticks and feathers that were added to the nest after it was cleaned yesterday.

4:35 p.m.

Today has been a frustrating day at the Wildlife Center. Earlier this morning, it was discovered that Bald Eagle #11-207 "self-released". The limb of a tree outside the enclosure apparently damaged the specialized fabric used for the walls of the 85-foot-long cage where #11-207 was housed.   Taking advantage of the tear in the side wall, the eagle squeezed through the hole in the fabric and performed what the Center calls a “self-release”.
