Critical Watch Alert – Sad loss of both hatchlings at the RF Eaglecam nest

I am so very sorry to report that at the RF nest, the first day hatchling has perished and the second egg that began hatching was not able to complete its hatch, so both eaglets were lost.  It is not clear what happened.  The first eaglet hatched after a 2 day plus hatch process that needed to be aided by mom, but then died later that day.  The second egg began to hatch but did not make progress.  It  has now been three days without hatch progress, so it appears that the second hatchling also perished.  The Critical Watch Alert is due to the fact that the remains of the the eaglet are clearly visible on the nest at this time.
