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.
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.

E-1, E-2, and E3 together again in their compartment in the Hack Tower overlooking Douglas Lake in East Tennessee.
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
While there, they will be fed by an eagle puppet and have
no visible contact with humans.
Another photo of the 2 eaglets. The older eaglet was hatched May 19;
the younger eaglet was hatched May 23.
A Bald Eaglet from an egg also laid by Esther and Isaiah was fostered
by our Golden
Eagles, Wankan Tankan & Cheyenne.
