We’re on hatch watch at the new RF nest, but one egg was lost today

RF Nest

The short story is that dad brought a huge rabbit to the nest for food, mom later dragged the rabbit into the nest and covered the eggs.  Shortly after that she removed a broken egg from the nest cup.   Sorry, I’m just having trouble reporting this one, the loss so close to hatch.  Thanks to MsO and eaglewhisperer18 for the info on what happened.  If you are up for it, eaglewhisperer has a couple of videos on what happened at her YouTube channel here:  http://www.youtube.com/user/priscillash1/videos viewer discretion advised.  Link to the cam: http://rfeaglecam.net   or  here  arrow in the picture points to a piece of the egg.

  1. This is so sad! What is going on at so many nest’s? I don’t understand why this Mom would pull the rabbit on to the eggs. I hope the other eggs will be okay!! Thank you so much for keeping us all updated. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for you to tell us all the sad news. I hope we have some good things happen tomorrow!
