Less than two weeks to go to expected hatch date(s). At night, the female gets up for a stretch and to turn the eggs every 40-60 minutes.The male has been roosting close by; ether behind the nest, above the nest or on a nearby tree. The ensuing "midnight duets" can probably be heard for miles around! The male brought a very large fish in during the day. Last evening, in the rain and wind, our new female laid an egg.Both have started to bring in a stick or two, and they are beginning to build up the edge of the nest bowl again. Hopefully nest renovation will continue and this female will bond will our resident male.As we were hoping, other Sea-Eagles have passed by.All new feathers coming through are abnormal and often break easily resulting in haemorrhage.It was no longer in the birds best interests to keep him alive in the faint hope he may recover.” A necropsy has been performed and extensive testing will be undertaken to learn more about beak and feather and its associated pathology.Larry Vogelnest, the senior vet at Taronga Wildlife Hospital stated: “He has deteriorated recently, appetite reduced, demeanour changed and his beak had to be trimmed so he could eat.
SE15’s condition has deteriorated in the last few days.
Thank you to everyone for your interest and support of this project.
For the latest observations, click on ' Eagle Diary' below. We see the male and female swap incubating duty an average of 10 times during daylight hours.
A juvenile was photographed flying in the area as well.
Our team have been watching at other areas along the Parramatta River and our male as well as another bird has been seen in Burns Bay. We have not recorded any sighting of our female Sea-Eagle "Mum" since 21st February, when the pair were seen on their mangrove river roost on the Parramatta River.
Our eaglet SE15 has been diagnosed with beak and feather disease.
