Eaglet DO has died

I received an email that DO has died.

From Pat Huckery

“Hi all - Flo called from Tufts Wildlife Clinic to say eagle #D0 died on July 4. She reported that the bird was anemic, had some kind of infection indicated by a high white blood cell count, and could not keepdown solid or liquid food. Necropsy showed a heavy infestation of liver flukes, possibly picked up by eating encysted fish. Hopefully our other eaglet will fare better. Keep your eyes open and let us know if you see anything unusual.

This was one of the last photos that I took of DO in the nest.
