The little ones are definitely eating well with all the Catfish in the James River and Mom and Dad are obviously proficient fishermen! News is that hopefully after all the trouble they've been having the Cam will be back online sometime Wednesday. Fingers crossed they finally get it worked out!

Ronnie

PS. Love the caption WS! I also did a little checking and it seems Virginia and James are not new at this, they have already raised 18 chicks not counting these two bobbleheads!

Thanks for the info update Ronnie. Great that they are still eating well, it's clearly a great spot for a nest, which I suppose is explained by how experienced the parents are. Fingers X the Cam comes back on

I was going to report the cam is back up, but as I started to type this it went down again. They must really be having some trouble. At least the glimpse I got was just the two little ones in the nest with some leftover catfish in the nest. Mom and Dad were both off the nest. Okay, now it's coming back up again! They're obviously still working on it at least.

Also some bad news about another nest RRP has been watching. What a shame.

Thanks Ronnie, just checked again, and the cam is up although it;s dark. It appears they have done a lot of work, but been unable to finish it yet this was on their chat

This is the view at the moment


Shame about the Vrain Bald Eagles. Intervention is always an awkward thing. On Springwatch on TV in the UK, last year, the female of a pair of Kestrals was killed by a car, leaving the chicks, but the Male successfuly raised them

Mum & Dad must be proficient fishermen to get all that catfish from the James River - great that it's available to them which will go a long way to bringing up the already not so little ones.

Shame the cameras are still playing up but looks like it's just about sorted, thanks WS & Ronnie cheers

There was an update in the Richmond Paper today concerning the nest. It seems mom and dad haven't fed the chicks since Thursday. Vets have had to feed the chicks, but mom and dad are still showing interest in the nest. The camera was taken down in case that was somehow spooking them. They will watch a few more days to see if mom and dad return to feeding, but are thinking about placing them in a new nest as Eagles will take care of young that are not theirs. Let's hope mom and dad return to feeding.

Thats a real shame Ronnie. I thought everything was going really well with them. I wonder whats changed to put them off ?. I know the Dekorah pair are very experienced, not sure about Virginia, and James what if any experience of bringing up chicks they have. It just seems so strange after they have been so attentive, that they should just stop, unless something has happened to one of them. Lets hope the chicks are OK, and will survive with, or without intervention. Thanks for the update Ronnie, at least we know what's happening

Yes they decided to take the camera down in case it was somehow causing stress. The good news is that today in a post on FB they confirmed Virginia and James have returned to feeding the chicks and even making a few repairs to the nest. I'll try to keep up with their progress via FB as they do have a page.

I Agree the chicks should come first and if Ronnie is keeping tabs via FB then we'll know how they are doing.

Seems so far everything is going well in the Richmond nest. They have installed a ground cam and have been putting up pics on FB. The plan is to get the cam back up and running on Ustream.







Just a couple of the pics from the ground cam.

Thats brilliant Ronnie glad everything seems OK, with the chicks, and a ground cam will be a lot less intrusive. Thanks for keeping us updated
