At the nest of Samson and Gabrielle (NEFL NEST) Samson delivered a Gar fish which Gabrielle began feeding to Legacy. She flew up to Lookout Point before Legacy was finished eating. Legacy was not to be stopped...s/he held the fish down with the feet and continued getting big bites! Congrats Legacy..you are a big eaglet now!

CAPTIVA EAGLET NECROPSY RESULTS: The liver tissue of Hope from the American Eagle Foundation
Captiva Eagle Cam nest, a female eaglet, was found to contain markedly increased levels of brodifacoum as well as traces of difenacoum, both are second generation anticoagulant rodenticide or rat poison. While we have answers for Hope’s death, a necropsy was unable to be performed on the younger eaglet, Peace, and the cause of its death remains unknown.
Anticoagulant rodenticides, or rat poisons, prevent the blood from clotting normally and cause an animal that has ingested a toxic amount to bleed to death. Rodents that ingest the poison often become disoriented or lethargic as they are dying and become easy prey for eagles, hawks, owls and other predators, passing the poison through the food chain. Sadly, it is not uncommon for apparently healthy raptors to test positive for low levels of rodenticides, which have not yet reached the point of causing toxicity and illness. The adults in the nest likely have chronic exposure to rodenticides from the same food sources but are not currently suffering any ill effects due to their larger body size compared to the affected baby.

E17 & E18:EYE SWAB RESULTS Swabs of the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam
eaglets infected eyes came back positive for Avian chlamydiosis. Avian chlamydiosis is a bacterial disease caused by Chlamydophila psittaci (C. psittaci), which is carried commonly by birds. This finding is consistent with our cytology results which allowed our treatment to be effective. Thanks to the incredible work by our team of veterinarians, technicians and wildlife rehabilitators, the eaglets were returned to their nest healthy and have continued to grow and thrive!

Thank you, Owlie! :thumbs:

Mommy and Legacy, they are a great team.

Today in the noon, Gabby looks hungry and is eating from that big fish. Legacy is chirping, I like that very much. :nod:
Image

It looks she is asking, what for a song are you singing, my sweet offspring?

Samson flew in with a HUGE bunch of hay :mrgreen:

... which Gabrielle thanked for with a long lasting song :D

Legacy was very curious about the new material and proved it by pulling straws from the pile
