No, I'm not. Cause I don't see the daddy in the new cam location. And that makes me sad.

Oh, well he's still in the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. He has already "moved on".

Remember, these are wild animals - not pets. They are on their own. He is fine. He's already been seen flying with another Eagle.

The babies are too young still to be on their own. They are being cared for til they can fledge.

Dad could not have cared for them by themselves. They prolly would have tried to fly while he was not there and have fallen to their deaths.

This is being handled by experts who know way more than we do. It's for the best.

My hope is that the will be released back into the Gardens from whence they came.

But dad is fine. He does not have the capacity or nature to grieve as we would. Canadian Geese mate for life. Eagles do not.

I will update this thread once in a while to let you all know how the babies are.

They are 2 females and one male.

Can you prove that? No. No one can.

Actually eagles do mate for life, but they will take another mate if theirs dies.

That doesn't mean he doesn't grieve the loss of a mate and his brood.

No I can't prove that. But we do know that Canadian Geese mate for life and will grieve over loss by standing by a dead mate. We've see the same thing from horses, dogs and other animals.

As far as I know, Eagles don't exhibit grieving behavior. But I'm not an ornithologist. He's been seen in the Gardens hanging out with another Eagle. I would suppose it's a female. I can reasonably expect him to be nesting later with her or some new mate.

Life has it's ups and downs and we can't know everything. He may not know she's dead, he may have forgotten already.

What can I say but that............
