Fortunately, the Franklin Institute has the expertise of the Schuylkill Wildlife Rehabilitaion Clinic on standby should anything untoward happen as it did last June when one of the eyasses flew too soon. Check out the June 2009 postings to see how Rick Schubert rescued the eyass and returned her safely to the nest.
From John Blakeman:
"Those of us who watch red-tail eyasses are from time to time alarmed by a most unfortunate, but natural happenstance — something that I sure hope doesn’t happen at the Franklin Institute nest. Still, everyone should understand this phenomenon. It relates to my earlier posting on red-tail slicing, the unique and powerful ejection of fecal matter by both haggards and eyasses.
