Very Sad loss of all three eaglets at the MN Bound eaglecam nest

Sadly all three eaglets have perished at the MN Bound nest.  They were about 3 weeks old.  The cam was off for a couple of days due to low batteries (it is solar powered) and when it came back on, it was seen that the eaglets were no longer alive.  They have turned off the cam, but at the moment, the most recent video is still playing (depending on how you access the cam) and does show the deceased eaglets, so just be aware.   Condolences to all who love and follow this nest, it has always been one of my favorites too.   Here is what the MN Bound folks posted about the situation:

“UPDATE: For the past two days our camera has been off because of the rain & clouds. We need sun to charge our batteries using the solar panels, and the weather didn’t allow the power needed to run our camera. Today the sun came back out and automatically turned the camera back on. Like many of the viewers, we were shocked to see that the eaglets were no longer alive. For reasons that we do not know, they did not make it through the cold, rainy weather. We don’t know what happened the past two days at the nest, or to the parents. We don’t have any answers at this time. We’re very sorry to everyone that followed along with this eagle family and saw the unfortunate ending. At this point we’ll be leaving the camera turned off. When and if we have any further updates, we’ll post them here.”

First Hatch at the MN Bound eaglecam nest!

So excited to see the first hatch at MN Bound!  The cam is solar powered and has been off and on the past few days due to weather, but today we got to see a very cute little bobblehead!  We don’t know exactly when hatched, but probably in the last day or two.  Link to cam: http://www.ustream.tv/mneaglecam
