Cookie's first mantling: "Mantling is hunching or arching shoulders and spreading wings over a recent kill to conceal it from other birds and predators who would be potential thieves. In this posture, the wings are mostly spread and drooped to the ground, exposing the bird's upper back, also called the mantle, which gives the action its name." [Click Here]

It is with a broken heart that I have to tell you that Cookie passed this morning at about 8:22. At 7 am, it looked as if both chicks had fared well through last nights storm, but Cookie quickly went down hill from that point. He was 6 weeks old today, the same age that BBB passed.

This is a screenshot from 7:10 this morning.

From Facebook:

Jean Pichler‎ to Big Bear Valley Eagles - Official Group

Friends,

I am sorry to say that unfortunately Friends of Big Bear Valley, the nest cam providers, has reported Cookie died this morning.

As to why, no one can say. Banding went well and both birds were examined by a wildlife biologist at that time and reported to be in good condition. We observed feedings and normal activities after banding. There may have been an internal issue that was not observable that added to this outcome but we just don't know.

Bald eagle mortality is close to 60% for first year birds. There are many things that can cause those deaths to occur, from genetic issues to infections to poisonings to car strikes while feeding. It is not likely Cookie's body will be recovered but that would be up to the US Forest Service to permit if it were to occur.

We continue to watch the cams and Simba's progress. Hopefully you will, at whatever point you are comfortable, be able to do the same. We always hope for successful nests and great outcomes. Nature doesn't always work according to our hopes and desires.

Please be kind to one another in posts in this group amidst the sadness of this sudden occurrence. Thank you.

Soar free and wild, Cookie!

Jackie sent most of the day away from the nest. You could hear her chortling from afar a few times. She came back to the nest tonight and had a touching few moments with Simba before settling in on him for the night. This was not food related. The touched beaks several times.

Here is a video of that moment I mentioned Jackie and Simba shared. It may have just been Simba saying he was hungry, but it did my heart good to think that they were consoling one another.

It's still in the nest. Sometimes they cover the bodies, sometimes they move them off the nest. Other times they become food.

@doo.hick.ey I tend to get blues confused with violet or green depending on the shade. I'm just a warm color oriented person.

Funny, my Dr Rose across from South Coast Plaza in Santa Ana, put rose colored spectacles on me during an eye test. Both chuckled a bit. I saw much better colors. Women are rare to have colorblindness. Your lack of blues may be yellow/green issues. Try holding a blue lens.
