Chick in fallen nest on ground @ Heiki Poolake
Larissa Smith of Conserve Wildlife Foundation and Kathy Clark of N.J.'s Endangered and Nongame Species Program played key roles in a recent rescue of three eaglets in South Jersey. Larissa's account begins: On Saturday the 23rd, I received a call from Eagle Project volunteers Donna and Heiki Poolake. One of the nests that they monitor in Cumberland County had partially fallen and Heiki found all three chicks on the ground, thankfully alive. ENSP Principal Biologist Kathy Clark met them out at the nest site and determined that all three looked uninjured but were weak from lack of food and water. The link is here.
