We hope you enjoy these photos which were taken June - August 2011, showing some of the eaglets born during the Spring nesting season at the United States Eagle Center at Dollywood.

Halo, formerly known as BB (Big Bird) or E-1, first hatched eaglet

Halo, formerly known as BB (Big Bird) or E-1, first hatched eaglet

Photos of E-1 (formerly called BB) and now named "Halo" in honor of a fallen army soldier named Carlos M. Silva-Santos.
This bird came from the first egg laid and hatched by Indy and Franklin. At one time it was the biggest of the 3 eaglets
that pair produced this year.  However, we have determined both E-1 and E-3 to be males
and E-2 is a female and now the largest of the 3 eaglets.

Wee Ones from Isaiah and Esther - June 2011

2 eaglets from eggs laid by Isaiah and Esther, but which had to be incubated and then fed by an eagle puppet.
The two eaglets are now in a tub inside a compartment in the Hack Tower.
They can see the older eaglets as well as the habitat into which they will fledge.
While there, they will be fed by an eagle puppet and have no visible contact with humans.
