I just saw Lumberjim's post about Sauce's Canyon.
I've been watching them a couple of times a day for several weeks, along with another Santa Cruz Island nest.
Both at once here:

As the chicks grow the Jaws quote often comes to mind: "You're gonna need a bigger boat."

It looks like the first of the Santa Cruz Island six bald eaglets is ready to solo. No telling which nest or when, but I am checking in for a few minutes twice a day.

FEATHER PANTS

Two Decorah, IA eaglets died a few days ago... of a gnat infestation.

But it was interesting to learn why. The pair had their eggs really late in the season; turns out that's dangerous, because the young could not develop enough before the gnat season began.

All in the timing, all in nature...

We have liftoff!
First Sauces Canyon Eaglet took off at 7:47 and the second at 9:10.
The third is thinking it over.
You can back up the live video to find the magic moments.
The other nest still has three.

It now looks like two from Fraser Point brood also took wing just after noon.
Amazing to be the same day.

I'm looking at the remaining Sauces youngster - looks like they banded them? Convenient for the watchers to see who's who; the Hanover nest watchers were always arguing about which female was which. ("Is that the homewrecker?")

Banded 2 or 3 weeks ago. The remaining one still has a lot more juvenile plumage than his/her mates. Most watchers expect them to come back to the nest, if only to get fed.

Watching them thinking about waking up for the day, pretty damn cool.

The Hanover eagles feed returns Monday at noon EST. They posted an early test video of the pair of birbs doing nest maintenance. New cameras are up, the video appears to be very high def.

At 3:15 they start positioning the same big stick... and for two minutes it's like a married couple fighting over the furniture. She pulls the stick to the left, and he moves it right back. A few times they stop and give each other a look.

Eventually she just leaves. After a few minutes of looking around, at 9:00 he takes that big stick and puts it on the opposite side of the nest! Then he admires it for a while, saying... well done.

I sent that picture to a friend in Canada and she came up with the answer.
