A Sad Day- Statement on E3’s Passing

It is with heavy hearts, we bring you an update on E3- this season’s elder eaglet:

After a few days of a noticeable behavior change, E3’s health deteriorated and passed away in the nest early this morning.  

While we may never know what caused the death of E3, we hope the documented videos and reports will help educate biologists and researchers & possibly save future eagles/eaglets.

We all mourn together with the reminder that we are merely observers; given the rare and unique opportunity to witness these eagles in the wild. 

Soar high and free E3.
