After yesterday’s drama with an intruder female Bald eagle on the nest, it appears that the previous Bald eagle female is still defending her nest and back to mating and nest tending with the male.
In other news, the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey had an update today about Duke Farms Alumni “Tiny” D/94:
“We have been following one of DF’s chicks banded in May 2009. He has been nesting in CT and his mate was a banded bird from MA. Cyndi Pratt Didan who reports on the pair, has now seen “Tiny” with a new female with a green band. So it appears the new female is also a Jersey bird. We haven’t yet been able to read the code on her band but hope to in the future, so we’ll know when and where she was banded. So a bit of drama up in CT also, we’ll continue to report on “Tiny” and his new mate.”
