Great news.
And, the kids are growing by leaps and bounds.  ;)
Thanks.

SWFL BALD EAGLES home of Harriet and M15 and little ones E19 & E20

This could be a duplicate, just an FYI. Lori
UPDATE 4/2/2022 : From SWFEC banner~ 6:57am good views of E20 and E19 show no issues with the fishing line!! E20 seems to be free of the line/hook!

SWFL Eagles ~ URGENT NEWS ~ FISHING LINE & HOOK Caught On E20's Foot! Monitoring Situation 4.1.22  https://youtu.be/BgtiW94BnZYVia ladyhawk
This afternoon, M15 brought a fish to the nest that has monofilament fishing line and a hook attached to it. E20 claimed the fish and E19 flew into the nest. After a tussle and attempted steal, the hook went into the left foot of E19. Both E's become caught in the line. You can see the fishing line at 6:10; 8:26: 9:13 (with the hook) attached to E19's foot.

E20 eats the fish and the E's have a few tussles being caught with the line. E20 then will move to the side of the side and E19 will begin to work on the hook and successfully pulls it out. then flies to the attic but we see that the hook and line is dangling from its foot. You can see the line/hook clearly at 18:22. Hopefully E20 will pull the line off with its beak or the line will somehow fall off. Also E20 might be able to free itself if the hook attaches to something. SWFEC has contacted CROW but right now there is not much anyone can do with a fully flighted bird unless it was on the ground. I am hoping & praying that E20 will be okay and will somehow get free of this line & hook! Thank you for watching!

From SWFEC Essec09 4/1/22: "As most are aware, the last fish that was brought to the nest apparently had a hook and short line attached. [b]E20 [/b]claimed the fish and during an attempted steal the hook went into the left foot of E19. The two juvies became entangled and the line was attached to E20 also. After a few tussles on the nest where E20 moved to the west side of the nest, E19 began working on the hook. Around 19:24:19 pm E19 managed to pull the hook out. E20 then flew to the attic where the hook/line was seen dangling from what appeared to be the foot, since when the foot moved, so did the hook. It is possible the line will fall off or E20 will pull the line off with beak like E19 did. If the hook attached to something E20 might be able to pull free. The camera owners are contacting CROW to let them know of the concern. But as I’m sure you know there isn’t much that can be done for a flighted bird, unless it is grounded. We all hope E20 will manage to lose the line/hook soon (if they haven’t already)."

SWFL Home of Harriet M15 E19 and E20

Hi e4e and all! Both E19 and E20 are doing just fine according to SWFL updates.  I just checked the cam today and unfortunately it is still down but Pritchetts are working on it.  According to ground reports the juvies are having fun today in and around the pond and m15 & Harriet are doing just fine.  ;)

Here are a couple of gifs from the past few days of them playing... ;)
