Sadly, Ozzie was lost after a tough struggle and long rehab, but Harriet has moved on.

Thanks so much for the link Dawg. A number of years ago the Federal Wildlife folks (or whatever they are called) started a program to bring Bald Eagles back to Massachusetts out by Quabbin Reservoir. The first ones were youngsters that had left the nest and were set up on heavy duty platforms that they built their nests on.

A week or so ago, there were about 15 people at Jamaica Pond (about a two hour or more drive at least from the Quabbin Reservoir) and they looked up and were shocked to see two adult Bald Eagles flying low right over their heads. They both had twigs in their mouths for building their nests. From none to more than 500 pairs of nesting Bald Eagles now make Massachusetts their home. The program out at Quabbin is still in progress. Sometimes they find an abandoned nest with eggs in them and will take the eggs and hope it is not too late. Or if they see one of the eaglets is not getting their fair share of the food they will rescue it to the teen years and then let them fend for themselves.

I hope all of you get to see these magnificent birds flying right over your heads. It is quite a sight!

I LOVE watching these beautiful birds raise their families!

The Decorah parents are both at the nest now, doing a little housekeeping. Thanks for the link to the SW Florida cam, Dawg. Those little eaglets are so cute!

Looks like I'll be watching 3 cams this season - Iowa, Florida, and the one on Catalina Island in California.

The Two Harbors Eagle Cam on Catalina Island isn't very good quality right now - not sure if it's the way the sun is shining on it, or a tech problem.

I read the complete update. It appears that the male succumbed to natural injuries that he twice received. So now the female is taking care of her babies on her own. Hopefully next year she will have found a new mate. She is such a good mother.

I've been hooked on the SW Florida eagle cam and have been checking in several times a day to see how they're doing. The chicks are getting big and look so healthy - mom and dad are great parents. It's hard to see the bigger chick pecking the heck out of the littler one, though - that's when I have to sign off.

I thought I would share this picture of our local eagles hockey team!

This is amazing considering that they are gathered on what was once believed to be the most polluted lake in the United States, talk about a comeback!

And that's is why a lot of wild life have more than one. So that there will always be a surviving one. Some of the young will push the weakling one right out of the nest. I have always wanted for Mother Nature to provide a way for the parents to be able to pick up the one on the ground and get it back to the nest. Wishful thinking on my part.

Lately this California gal has been enjoying watching the nest on the west end of Catalina island. There are two eggs in the nest and the camera angle is great with the ocean beneath their beautiful nest with a view. She just finished rolling them over.

Yep, I've been watching the Catalina Island nest in California too, Kay. It is a beautiful view! I also check in on the Decorah, Iowa eagles nest daily (there's snow on the nest now), and the SW Florida eagles. The Florida one is especially fun to watch right now because the eaglets are getting so big.

Here's all three in one place again for anyone who's interested.
