Viewers have been able to verify that there are three hatchlings at Standley Lake! Link to cam: http://www.ci.westminster.co.us/eaglecam
I saw reports of a second hatch yesterday at Standley Lake and captured a screenshot this morning of the two little ones as they both popped up for a nice meal! Yay! Link to cam: http://www.ci.westminster.co.us/eaglecam
After a few days of maybe, possibly, it looks like, we might have an eaglet, we have a confirmed view today as a little one can be seen popping up just behind the branch that partially blocks the cam view as it occasionally bobbles into view. It is practically impossible to see in my screenshot, but when you are watching live, you can see the little one moving. so Yay! Because of the camera angle, we won’t know exactly when the eaglet hatched, but it is fair to assume it was in the past day or so. Link to cam: http://www.ci.westminster.co.us/eaglecam
Sorry for just the quick recap – busy time at the nests! 🙂
We have a third hatch at the Dale Hollow Lake cam, a third egg at Decorah, a second egg at Standley lake and a first egg at the Harmar PA nest. Thanks to all who alerted me!
A recap of news from around the nests from the past day or so:
Both the Avon Lake and Standley Lake eaglecams are reporting their first egg arrived yesterday!
Some news regarding the eaglet “Peace” from the AEF NEFL nest. Peace was rescued from the nest and is under wonderful care. There hasn’t been any definitive diagnosis on what is wrong, but happily, he has been moved to a flight cage and they anticipate that they will be able to bring up a camera for us to watch his progress! There is hope that he will be released.
At the IWS Channel Islands nests, unfortunately the equipment that powers the Catalina West End nest camera, just disappeared following the storms we had recently in CA. The theory is that it fell from the cliffs in this very remote location. So, this nest will not be online for the rest of the season. They are reporting that the eagle pair are incubating though, which is great news!
Also, IWS has been able to bring up the Bald Canyon nest on stream, so that will be fun to watch!
Big thanks to Ms O, Mindy and Michelle for alerting me to a new eaglecam in Colorado! The Standley Lake eaglecam is now up and running! From the info on the website, there has been an eagle pair nesting and raising eaglets for the past 22 years at this general location with eggs laid usually in early February.
