Good Morning Beakers

oldguy - Thanks for the videos, still love to see the Q-kids videos.  They are growing up!

Lani - Awww, love the sleeping pups. 

Phyl - Thanks for all the links this morning. Hope everything works out for Jim, and the doc can get him fixed up.  My brother had heart, and the same stage of kidney disease as Jim, but his kidney's were not functioning well.  He had to be on dialysis. 

tsk - We are dreary today.  I hope it clears up. 

kb - Oh my goodness!  Hope the eaglet makes it.

That's a baby eaglet under the debris by the woman's hand with red nail polish.

Story posted in DNR fb page but the nest is in Hastings, MN

2 of the 3 eaglets did die, but one was alive and taken to the Raptor Center in St. Paul MN

Story posted by Scott Northard:
Yesterday morning the Bald Eagles nest just north of Lake Rebecca blew down in the high winds. For the last 14 years, we have used a telescope to watch the nest out of our back window and have seen eagles hatch in all but 2 of those years. I had been watching it that morning and noticed the eggs had hatched and the adults were feeding some baby eaglets. When I looked again a short time later a large branch had broken and the nest was gone.
We immediately called Carpenter Nature Center and they said they would send some of their staff out to see if the eagle chicks survived and if they could safely transport them to the University of Minnesota Raptor Center. We met them at Lake Rebecca Park, and found the tree and what was left of the nest on the ground. We found 2 dead baby eaglets, and while we were listening, we could hear a tiny peeping noise. After digging through the pile of sticks and twigs, we found a third baby eaglet still alive. It was gently removed and put in a cloth inside a box and transported to the Raptor Center, with another eagle from Welch that was also rescued that day. The Raptor Center reported that the eaglet arrived safely and is under their care.
Although it was sad to see the nest go down in the wind and 2 of the eaglets die, we were grateful that one could be rescued. Hopefully, the adult eagles will rebuild the nest nearby and continue to raise more eaglets.
Many thanks go out to Jen Vieth, Al Maloney, Sarah Germscheid, Tess Zahradka, and volunteer Dwight Smith of Carpenter Nature Center for their quick and professional response! And thanks to the U of M Raptor Center for their dedication to rehabilitating these magnificent birds when they need our help. We are fortunate that caring groups like this exist in our community.
