I've been watching all morning. She is turning the eggs and is active. One of the eggs has cracked so it won't be long before we see a baby chick! I'm so excited!!!

She got up a few minutes ago and you can see a huge crack in one of the eggs so it won't be much longer. One of the experts commenting says by morning there will be a new little eaglet in the nest.

Maureen, thank you so much for sharing this with us. I've enjoyed watching this unfold for two days.

The little eaglet is so cute! Here's a video of Mom feeding it this morning:

I just can't stand it, it is so precious. When the momma was, ever so gently, trying to cover the eaglet and egg from the wind or predators...it was just too sweet.

This is hilarious:

Earlier this afternoon, Dad came back to the nest after being gone all night. He didn't bring Mom any food. She had been feeding the eaglet a fish from yesterday. Dad took over and Mom left.

About an hour later Mom returned to the nest with a huge carp. They had a squabble over the carp and then Dad ate all of it except for a tiny bit of the tail. Mom got pissed and let him know it! She fussed and fussed at him. Then she left the nest for a long time and returned without a fish this time.

Right now Dad is scared to death of her. He's sitting on the eaglet and egg and won't move or make eye contact with her. The expert in chat says this is a first time Dad but not a first time Mom. People chatting from all over the world about it are pissed at Dad. The expert said, "Don't worry, she'll teach him some manners!!"

They're having a stand-off at the moment. He's trying to be so good and is sitting on the nest looking very chagrined. She's standing as close to him as possible, occasionally fussing and intimidating him. He still won't budge or make eye contact with her. I can't wait to see how the squabble ends, but I bet Mom comes out the winner! I also bet the next time he shares the fish with Mom and eaglet! Wink

I learned today that eagles don't regurgitate food like other birds. They feed them tiny bits of fish etc. from birth. I also learned yesterday that the first hole in the egg is a pip. The eggs are 36 days old and the eaglets will be in the aerie for at least 12 weeks while Mom and Dad teach them to hunt and fish. Amazing!!!

Word of warning Eagle watchers, it's very addicting, if you haven't already found out. LOL

It can also be very sad. I was so addicted last year and the ending wasn't a happy one.

I'm almost afraid to watch but I will probably give it another try.

One of the eaglets fell out of the nest fell 75 feet and probably didn't survive the fall and the other one looks tangled in the nest



If it cannot set itself free it will starve to death

Kelli you were so right! I was gone and came back to find out one of the eaglets had fallen out of the nest. Sad

I am very happy one of them got untangled and is fine so far. I can see why you gave us the warning. Mother Nature doesn't always have happy endings.

I enjoyed this experience so much and thank you again Maureen for sharing the link with us. I learned so much about eagles. I believe there is a loon nesting now.

It was be so wonderful yet heart wrenching when the eaglets struggle or don't make it.

I was watching when they took Harmon from the nest for a couple of days. We were all on pins and needles waiting for the parents to show back up. The poor little guy squawked until he had no voice left, calling for them.

Thank goodness they showed back up!! It made it all worthwhile.

As long as you're aware of the risks, it's well worth spending some time learning about nature!!

Here's Harmon today! He's a full grown eagle and is away from the nest a lot now.
