This is posted on "other activites" forum, but had to let everyone know that one has hatched. I know this isn't the appropriate place, but more people traffic here that wouldn't otherwise see this. Sorry if this breaks the rules(Roger)…..move if need to,
but its so worth the excitement to behold this one time!?!
Be patient and watch! :)Apr 2, 2011 at 8:32 am #1718841

This is cool. There used to be a camera in WV like this. I do not remember the link, but I will try to find it.

You can see the chick now and the mother ripping up a rabbit.

The first eaglet to hatch was fed fresh rabbit by a parent eagle.
A memorial service will be held for the recently departed rabbit at the Decorah Iowa Lutheran Church. Donations will be accepted for PETA.

You are too funny Bob.
Actually, I believe the rabbit is a week old. We've had the wake/visitation all this time. Poor bunny…the little guy seems to be enjoying it right now.Apr 2, 2011 at 5:17 pm #1719081

Don't get me wrong. I like rabbits. They are cute and cuddly, and very tasty.

36 degrees with a wind chill that makes it feel like 26 degrees and snow.
The only place that isn't covered is where momma/daddy and the babies are at in the nest.
No tent, no tarp and no campfire, duh! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Eagle down must be really warm.:-)

@ John..yea, even some snow yesterday. At least its warm enough so they can sun bathe. Ferocious eaters, then they just drop.Apr 21, 2011 at 1:46 pm #1727616

It's a lot of fun to watch this family grow. I hope to be around (and not away on a trip) when they start flying!Apr 30, 2011 at 2:26 pm #1731337
Tip feathers are coming in now. They are starting to spread their wings out so to catch the wind at times. Below is a link to the webcam placement last fall. Get a real idea how huge this nest is.Apr 30, 2011 at 6:41 pm #1731412

They grow fast … close to adult size at age 9 weeks. Flight is a bit more variable around 12-14 weeks, IIRC.May 20, 2011 at 2:03 pm #1739075
check out the live webcam and watch….not much longerJun 10, 2011 at 3:00 pm #1747573
Just got word that these 3 teen eaglets should fledge sometime between June 11-25, likely the later. Its so fun following them. They don't look nor act like anything from before.
