THINGS NOT LOOKING TOO GOOD AT THIS POINT FOR E3 (THE OLDEST). DOES NOT HAVE A CROP & SEEMS TO HAVE NO INTEREST IN EATING.

THIS WAS POSTED ON THEIR SITE:

I've been watching and reading about E3 and now I feel bad for all the hexes I tried to put on her for bullying and beating up her little brother. I hope she's going to be ok.

AT THE TIME I THINK WE ALL FELT BAD FOR THE WAY E3 TREATED E4, BUT NONE OF US WANTED ANYTHING BAD TO BEFALL E3, OTHER THAN FOR HER TO STOP BEATING UP ON E4.

LIKE YOU, PATTI, I HOPE SHE CAN BYPASS WHATEVER IS AILING HER & BE OK.

E3 has died.
What in the world could have happened? She was so active and robust and was thriving then suddenly her behavior changed, she stopped eating and died!
Very, very odd.

Here is the last video of E3 & E4 early this morning and E4 taking its last breaths. So sorry to hear about this even though I was angry the whole time she beat up on her little brother. She seemed to mello out a good bit after the food starting coming in.

Here is a longer video of the 2 on the nest last night and E3 looks like she is having a hard time breathing.

And he will raise you up on eagle's wings, bear you on the breath of dawn. Make you to shine like the sun and hold you in the palm of his hand.

This nest had several days in a row of pouring rain and chilly temps (chilly for FL anyway) and I just wonder if that played a part?

SAD NEWS FOR THIS EAGLE'S NEST

IT IS SAID THAT ONLY 50% OF CHICKS MAKE IT THROUGH THE 1ST YEAR AND THEY STILL HAVE AN UPHILL CLIMB FROM THERE TO ADULTHOOD.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE NOW MORE AWARE OF THIS BECAUSE OF ALL THE CAMS WE HAVE NOW.

I WISH SUCCESS TO THE REMAINING CHICKS AND EGGS OUT THERE!

SERIES OF SCREEN SHOTS I TOOK --- SO SAD AT TIMES. OZZIE & HARRIET BOTH CAME - E4 REALLY CHATTERED AT THEM AND PUT HIS LEG ON E3 AND THEN MOM. PARENTS LEFT AFTER AWHILE AND E4 FINALLY WENT TO THE SIDE.

Great shots BUNNIE. It really makes you wonder what they feel and think about. Are they aware? Do they mourn? What will they do with E3 now?

I had hoped this wouldn't happen but it looks like it's going to.

PATTI .. AFTER WATCHING AWHILE I DID NOT FEEL THEY WERE GOING TO CONSUME. MOM WAS CAREFUL THAT SHE DID NOT PUT HER TALONS ON E3. THINK SHE ONLY WANTED TO BREAK THE CARCASS DOWN SO THEY COULD MOVE IT.

PHOTOS HERE OF MOM & E4.

APPARENTLY WHEN OZ TRIED TO REMOVE THE REMAINS OF E3 IT GOT CAUGHT ON THE NEST. HARRIET PULLED IT BACK UP AND SO IT REMAINS.

AND IT CONTINUES.

Thanks BUNNIE. I hope they move it tomorrow for good. It's like the elephant in the room.

OZZIE JUST FED E4 AND NOW NAP TIME CALLING HIS NAME. E4 LIKES TO CUDDLE AND ESPECIALLY IF HE HAS OZ TO DO IT WITH.
