And thanks to the COOP workers for calling HEART and keeping people away. A mighty effort keeping people and cars back, I'm sure. Well done!

Wow, love the release video!  Thank you Wren and Booni for capturing the "capture" in both photos and words.  Hopefully this beauty will be released very soon as well.

I had to post this great story and the photos to the MARS Facebook page. I'm trying to get an update on the eaglet, probably tomorrow...

Well done and a big thank you to Booni, Wren, the Co-Op, MARS and the folks who lstened to and followed Wren's words in order to not scare the eaglet.

We got another eaglet the same age just the day before and the two pre-fledge eaglets have a cozy nest that they live in together, now. Not quite the same as home, but they seem to appreciate the regular feedings!

Rest assured, there will be more photos and video. Sandy Royer has some great stuff! I'm not there every day anymore, so it's difficult for me to get fresh footage.
