Maita & Bev, thanks for the posts on the new Kenai baby! Oh my goodness, it happened so quickly. Congratulations to Mom & Dad Kenai and to all Kenai Eagle Watchers! I just did a quick check and was able to go back a little further than 6 am and it appears that our new baby was totally out of the shell at 4:41 am this morning. Mom had gotten up and flown off and I wasn't sure if the shell was still attached but once Dad got back he hit the shell on the right and flipped it over and then we could see the chick was fully out.
The first two s'caps were before Dad hit the shell and I wasn't sure if the chick was still partially attached at this point.

8:59 am - Mom had some food on the rail that she is trying to feed to the new chick. Such a cutie pie!

Not sure how much the baby was able to get as it kept falling forward when trying to grab a bite, but Mom was trying her best.

And look here, the new chick must have hit the egg a little to roll it somewhat and now we can see the 2nd chick partially hatched.

1:22 pm - Dad is going to try feeding chick #1
2018-05-22 17_34_52-Kenai Eagle Cam - YouTube.jpg
And another bite. I can only assume the chick is taking the food as Dad goes back to the rail to get another piece each time.
2018-05-22 17_36_33-Kenai Eagle Cam - YouTube.jpg
And another one. This feeding is working out better than the first one. The chick is able to hold it's head up much better.

Bev I just took a look at the recent movement by Mom and it looks like at least half the shell is empty. Couldn't tell for sure about the other half, if the chick is still attached as it was under Mom.

1:58 pm - here are the s'caps

Thanks Sue for checking the DVR .. I suspect we will have another baby soon on this nest,, that will be great.. being hatched close to one another will lessen sibling rivalry .. :)

Hi Bev, thanks for catching the hatch of chick #2. So this makes them less than 12 hours apart, born on the same day, that's great!

4:53 pm - here are some s'caps from a feeding. Looks like Dad is feeding chick #1, and chick #2 is laying on h/h side looking up. Way too tired from breaking out of that shell to even think about getting up.
2018-05-22 21_25_11-Kenai Eagle Cam - YouTube.jpg
Mom comes in with some sort of skinny fish.
2018-05-22 21_25_36-Greenshot.jpg
And Mom begins to feed chick #1 and #2 seems to be looking at Dad.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 23, 2018

Good Morning Kenai Eagle Watchers! I just checked the DVR and found the following feeding.

5:07 am - Looks like Dad is on the nest. He took over for Mom around 4:06 am. Dad is feeding both chicks. All I can say is Dad has patience. It was only a 5 minute feeding but those bobble heads were everywhere and just trying to make beak to beak contact was difficult but Dad managed to give them both at least a few bites each.

This was the first bite for the chick in the back
24ED9A07-BE65-4010-9751-B6B351F5077A.jpeg
And just love this how both chicks are looking up at Dad waiting for a bite.
20934578-9F36-4A62-9256-C65C0EE85629.jpeg
And here is the first bite for the chick up front
35EBE0E6-4D16-4211-931B-CEEF572B4CD8.jpeg
It’s going to be difficult to tell these two apart being so close in age and also with this zoomed out view but I assume the first fed is always the oldest.

12:35 pm - thought I would try out a video. Came across a feeding where both were eating but at only one day old the bonking has already started.

Hi Bev, SueB, Baita and all. These 2 are adorable. I checked back but couldn’t find an answer to my question: does this camera have zoom capabilites? Is it monitored?

Hi Marianne, sorry I didn’t see your previous post. As far as I know there is no ability to zoom in on this camera. I am pretty sure it is being monitored by the City of Kenai as they have uploaded quite a few videos from the live feed, almost daily recently.
