We have a happy update to the saga of the Redding Eagles.
Their nest fell to the ground Monday when the branch it was on broke at the Riverview Golf Club.
Rescuers brought the two eaglets, River and Sky, to a wildlife rehab center in Manton.
The group "Friends of the Redding Eagles" tells us that at the suggestion of Fish and Wildlife experts, the crew at riverview built a platform for the nest close to it's original spot.
They returned the two eaglets to the nest Tuesday night.
There was concern their parents wouldn't return, but Wednesday morning their mother Liberty was spotted feeding the eaglets fish.
The Father, Spirit, was seen circling the nest, which is lower than the normal Eagles nest at 80 to 100 feet in the air.
The eaglets are not expected to fly for a few more weeks, so rescuers are thrilled they will be able to remain in the wild to learn from their parents rather than raised by humans and then being released into the wild.

The nest that's home to the "Redding Eagles" fell to the ground after the branch it was on broke at the Riverview Golf Course.
It happened Monday.
The group "Friends of the Redding Eagles" says that the two eaglets in the nest ... River and Sky... survived the fall and appear to be in good health.
While they were on the ground, witnesses say one of their parents ... Liberty... came by with fish from the nearby Sacramento River to feed the young ones.
Rescuers took the eaglets to the Eagle Aviary in Manton to care for them overnight, while the Riverview grounds crew built a new nesting platform at the suggestion of Fish and Game, and placed it next to where the branch holding the nest used to be.
The eaglets have since been returned to the nest and rescuers are keeping a close eye out to see if the parents will return as well.

After plenty of morning clouds, we had plentiful sunshine this afternoon with weaker wind and warmer highs. The clear sky and light wind will lead to a chillier start Friday morning, and we'll have a breezy and mild Friday before more changes arrive.
