When I went Friday morning both chicks were in the nest. By Friday afternoon one chick had flown from the nest and was unable to land back at the nest site. This morning, April 6, I arrived at 8 am to find the second chick had flown out of the nest 15 minutes earlier. On attempt to return to the nest the Eagle fell. A wildlife officer came and serched the area but could not find the chick. Most likely a good sign. I watched the two adults calling for the chicks for a while then they flew off. Suddenly one of the chicks flew by and landed in a tree east of the nest. The photos I got are not that good, light wrong direction and grey sky. But I want to document what I saw.

When I read chick I thought they'd be small. But, wow, they are pretty big. Glad to hear the one is still there. Hope the other one is found soon.
