I will check out the other eagles, too.

ETA: I don't see a baby at the West End Catalina cam??? Both parents were there and one flew off.



I joined their forum and found out what is going on. According to the institute The cam battery is solar and it's at 13 volts now, should be 24. Cam will be down until it can recharge.

Ospreys are also interesting to watch, and there's a lot of nest cams also. E.g., Audubon osprey nest on Hog Island, Maine https://explore.org/livecams/birds/osprey-nest

First chick is expected to hatch within the next few days, I believe.

The first fledge is the male called Corsair at Sauces Canyon Channel Islands. He got his first experience yesterday when his sister shoved him off the nest and he had to get back in.

Catalina, here are two recently hatched Osprey at the Chesapeake Conservancy Maryland. Right now Dad just brought some fish for breakfast.

The West End Catalina female called Aria warming up yesterday afternoon. Mom is watching in the distance. Hopefully she doesn't fledge today while the cam batteries are recharging.
