First Hatch at the HWF White Rock nest!

Woot!!!!  We have our first hatch this year at the White Rock nest! Congrats to all who love and follow this nest!  Looks like there may be a pip on the second egg, or it could be eggshell from the first hatch, so no confirmation yet, but talons crossed!   Link to cam: http://www.hancockwildlife.org/index.php?topic=White-Rock-Eagle1

  1. Thank you Twizzkid for always keeping us informed and updated on the eagles! I have a question, or more an observation and wonder your thoughts. At the Fort St. Vrain nest, I notice that the parent doesn’t sit with the eaglet or try to really keep him/her warm. The weather is chilly, but the parent usually is off to the side. I know the baby likely has more thermal down now, but observing other nests, many of the parents sit and cover babies even older than the Fort St. Vrain eaglet. Your thoughts or am I just tuning in at the wrong time? Thank you!

    1. I know that all eagle parents are different and some are more protective than others, but I did see both parents working hard to protect the chicks during the storms, so I feel pretty confident they are not being neglectful at this point. Hope that helps. (and, of course, just my opinion)

      1. Thank you for your response! You are right, I misjudged Fort St. Vrain’s mother, I feel bad! I watched the nest for quite a while last night, and at the end of the evening, she tried to snuggle down with her baby-first I had seen that! She does seem attentive, in fact, was stuffing him full of fish. Thank you again for all you do!
