- How do you tell Jackie and Shadow apart? Jackie is larger than Shadow. Jackie’s beak is both longer and thicker from top to bottom than Shadow’s.
- How old are the eagles? Jackie is 10, Shadow is 8.
- How can the eagles handle the cold temperatures, snow and rain? Bald Eagles are well equipped to handle harsh weather conditions. They have down feathers against their skin that can hold in the heat their bodies generate. On top of the down, they have approximately 7000 waterproof feathers that can keep the wet and cold out and also helps keep the heat inside.
- Where do the eagles sleep at night and does the light bother them? During nesting season, Jackie the female sleeps in the nest, Shadow sleeps perched in a tree nearby in case he is needed. The light at the nest is an infrared light, this light cannot be seen by the eagles or humans. It is only picked up by the camera, which enables us to view the nest at night. In the off season, both eagles sleep perched in trees within their territory.
