Trempealeau Eagles Update

What’s going on at the Trempealeau eagle nest and where is Mr. T? We haven’t seen him since March 28. Prior to that, he and Mrs. T were exchanging incubation duties and he was acting like a normal eagle Dad. But we haven’t seen him on the nest since his last shift and no one has reported or found him, live or dead, in the vicinity of the nest.

The couple’s first eaglet hatched on very late on April 2nd or very early on April 3rd and Mrs. T has been handling brooding and feeding remarkably well. As long as she is capable of caring for her eaglet, we don’t see any need to intervene or take it away from her. We’re monitoring the situation from the camera and from the ground and we have our fingers, toes, and talons crossed.
