Good Morning everyone, another exceptional day today at the nest! So anxious to see if we have have a 2nd hatch under way, or maybe even little one made it out last night and we have two!

Just wanted to share a picture this morning of a very gutzy or stupid mouse walking in the nest.
look toward the top back of mom's tail and you can see it's little head peaking out. Mom must be very tired to not feel this little hitch-hiker near her.
Have a great day everyone

Here you have it wonderful fellow eagle fans

1 eaglet out
2nd on it's way, almost out of the egg!
So happy
Way to go and this nest sure is being rewarded from it's sad nest last year! Rewards time with healthy baby eaglets...go 3rd eaglet, we will wait patiently for your arrival!

Pa arrived, I didn't see any food delivery...that's not to say one isn't in the nest, I just haven't see the eaglet feed yet. Hope to capture that soon.

Family all together, but I did not see pa arrive so not sure if he was able to get a peek at his new offspring.
Busy morning at several nests and setting up my windows laptop to run via on my tv. Everything is happening so fast this morning and trying not to miss anything
You can see chick 1 is holding it's head up, thinking time for a feeding soon.
Chick 2 is almost completely out of it's shell, you can see it in the corner of Ma's left food, fuzzy gray fur ball.
So exciting!

I had some pic's of the 2nd eaglet and was trying to post and things went kattywompos with the site. Sorry to have lost the pictures but the important information is that we have two hatches and they both look great. Eaglet 1 is hungry and wants to eat. I see a fish and a UFO in the nest, but as yet been able to see a feeding. Not sure if it's Ma or Pa in the nest and if Pa, I assume he's waiting for Ma to be the first to feed. Seems to be the way it is with the mother and her babies.
Maybe someone else saw a feeding??
The site is working again for me so hopefully more pic's soon.

First Feeding from both parents, at least from what I have seen off and on today. The site was down for a bit this afternoon, they may have been feed then, but I'm thrilled to have these pictures.

Kids sitting up so tall for their feeding. Oldest got a few bites and the youngest looked liked h/s might have gotten 1 or 2. So cute

Hello Bev,
There were 3 eggs and so far two eaglets have hatched. If you scroll up you can see pictures of both hatched eaglets, on the picture just above your comments the first born is feeding while resting on it's sibling and the other unhatched egg. Iam hopeful for the 3rd egg to hatch, it's my understanding they were all laid 3 days apart.
Rainna

Debs, I hope you don't mind me copying and pasting your Hatch Guidelines sheet for Bev to view.
So very sorry if I broke a rule, just read some of them and I may have done just that by posting Debs guide. Won't happen again, sorry.

I hope know one minds, but I did catch a feeding today and took a video. I sincerely hope that third egg hatches soon. These two were really going at it.

Wow, that is the worst bonking I have seen yet on any nest; and to think these 2 are only hours apart in age. Hope #3 doesn’t get both of their wrath. So busy bonking they wouldn’t even eat and they wouldn’t stop. Nobody won that round.

Breakfast is served Mr. Mouse!

I just have to turn away when the bonking happens, I just have to wait for that time to be over. It's so hard to watch. Sleepy Ma, and sounds like the chicks are hungry

So sweet, dual feeding by Mom and Dad. Not sure how much each got because they were bonking constantly.

Picture of feeding with egg in the background. Can’t see the pip but another one I saw but couldn’t capture definitely showed it.

This was from earlier this morning and they seemed like they were getting along quite well. Poor Dad was trying to help out Mom.

Well, the bonking continues so they are just moving targets at their feeding. Pip on egg #3 progressing. Cute closeup

Evening Sauces :bye 1:

Great to see all your posts and nest observations :clap:

The third chick was nearly out of its shell just a bit ago so we have three chicks :rh:

Hopefully the bonking settles down ... lots of food will usually fix that.

There has been lots of messy meals on the nest. I did some videos but then decided it was too gross to share.

Caught several feedings but this is the last one I just saw. All 3 sitting up nicely and being fed before the 2 oldest started their bonking. Mom stopped feeding and sat on them to calm them down.

Oh my, thank you so much Kitcat11848, your pictures are fantastic and I hope your permission would be granted to share them with the group over at the Eagle Chatters forum?
With so much happening right now it's been a very busy time for several nests, the high activity in my area with the bird population, and some personal health issues with family, my time is spread thin.
So very happy you posted several pictures!

Good Morning Sauces

Rainna, Kitcat, Thanks for all your reports and screen captures ... there are so many nests and eagle families to watch via live cam now it is difficult to watch them all.

653 am
Early morning feeding this morning ... priceless family interaction.

This nest is a mess; bloody seal or sea lion placenta everywhere but so nutritious. Just watched Mom feed or try to feed the 3 bobble triplets.

Looks like #3 is very hungry so climbed out of the nest bowl

Mom covered #3 up with that bloody mess but thank goodness she realized it and uncovered him.

Look how cute all 3 are lined up to be fed. Much better that way than bonking each other.

At 3:30 am Sauces time I was checking in to see how everyone was and I saw a mouse in the upper left corner. What a very brave (or hungry) little rodent. :bye 1:
