SWFL Nest - Eaglets Removed for Suspected Avian Pox Infection 1/29/21
https://youtu.be/6l7_8iFD3Uo VIA PAULK

The eaglets were removed this afternoon due to a suspected Avian Pox infection. M15 was on the nest when they retrieved the eaglets and returned after. The video on both cams was stopped by the owners for a few minutes during the actual retrieval.  I have included Cam 1 first,  then Cam 2 at 5:35 ET.The eaglets were removed this afternoon due to a suspected Avian Pox infection. M15 was on the nest when they retrieved the eaglets and returned after. The video on both cams was stopped by the owners for a few minutes during the actual retrieval.  I have included Cam 1 first,  then Cam 2 at 5:35 ET.
*This info is from the cam status update:
 - CROW will be removing the eaglets from the nest this afternoon for rehab, treatment and hopeful re-nesting as soon as possible. They did confirm a possible infection and worked with the local/national wildlife authorities for approval.
- Crow quickly and successfully removed the Eaglets. M15 flew around the nest tree, came back and is looking around. Hopefully they can be treated and re-nested. We will provide updates as we know more.

*Further information from the Facebook Page:
- From FB -Earlier this week we started to see some changes in the eaglets eyes and while unconfirmed until a proper exam can be done, is most likely Avian Pox or another type of infection. Luckily, thanks to the quick action of CROW - Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc. and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service- they will be removing the eaglets this afternoon for treatment & rehabilitation.
- We are hopefully for a quickly re-nesting back to H & M and successful recovery for these 2 little ones.

We don't know yet what is wrong with their eyes and can't speculate. We will wait for CROW to let us know the outcome of their evaluation.

OUR BABIES!!!






E17 & E18's First Feeding At CROW  https://youtu.be/a6xNU4Wj9q4

After receiving the examination by the veterinarians and initial cleanup and treatment of their eyes, E17 & E18 were given food by one of CROW's Wildlife Rehabilitators. They are fed torn and cut up mouse pieces that is weighed out according to their body weight to ensure they each get the amount of calories they need. While in our care, they are being fed four times a day. you will notice that the rehabilitator is wearing a veil to cover her face. This is to prevent the eaglets from imprinting on humans. We also administer their eye medications before their feeding to limit the amount of human interaction.

One more... Miss Sassypants

Wiping off their faces after feeding :) Looks like E17 a little snippy with the napkin ;)

SWFL E17 & E18     Dinner for 2

4pm feeding at CROW yesterday

FB Update via CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife)
E17 & E18 from the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam  Feeding time! These two eaglets have had very healthy appetites and are eating a lot. Our rehabilitation staff currently has them on a feeding schedule of four times a day. Each feed, which consists of chopped rat, mouse or quail pieces, is weighed out based on the body weight of the eaglet to ensure they get the needed amount of calories to keep growing.
One of the biggest concerns for our team is imprinting on the young eaglets. To avoid this, the staff wear veils that hide their faces. We also administer any medications right before or after they are fed to minimize the amount of human contact we have with them. They certainly are quite messy eaters.
