Nest Update March 23, 2013 - Hatchwatch Day 14

Good Evening, Fellow HatchWatchers!

Wow! 14 days since the first egg was laid, seems like only yesterday. Time flies when you have eagles to watch! It has been an interesting 2 weeks, to say the least. I hope the next 2 weeks as we wait for a hatch are just as interesting!

The morning started clear and cold again today. Dad brought a small stick and Mom tussled with him over it a little bit. Later he pulled on his nemesis stick and it finally moved and it looked like it dropped off the nest.

I missed most of the day but reports are that it was a very calm day. Mom and Dad switched several times and Dad even resorted to bribery again to get Mom off the warm spot. He brought her a squirrel and she took it and went off to eat it on the dining branch. Bekka caught a good snap as Mom took the squirrel.


A Red Tailed Hawk flew over again today and treated the eagles to the classic movie raptor scream. Mom and Dad both warned the hawk away. It sounded like the hawk was telling them he knew they were there.

Bekka caught some great snaps of Dad and the eggs late in the day


Thanks Bekka! And thanks to BBC for the great cam this year!
