Weekly Nest Notes: Welcome E15 & E16!

2020-04-05 01:59:18 GMT

Harriet and M15 were not about to give up on their nesting season and the opportunity to add to their majestic species.  In their true spirit of persistence and devotion, they succeeded in presenting their second clutch, Egg 3 and Egg 4. Harriet and M15 selflessly executed another round of incubating their treasured Eggs. They have extended their season well into the hotter months of the year and brave the seemingly unbearable conditions to continue on their mission.

Harriet and M15 watched and listened as Egg 3 showed signs of hatching. The first great challenge for the Eaglets started a few days before a hole or PIP became evident on the shell. From that point, the process may take 48 hours or longer as in these cases.  Much strength and energy are exerted by chick with resting time in between efforts to break out of their shell. E15  hatched on 3-31-2020 at 5:29 am. Egg 4 had a PIP that very morning and E16 hatched on 4-2-2020 at 6:48 pm. The little miracles E15 and E16 made their grand entrances into the world.

Harriet and M15 began the nourishment and enrichment of their feisty E15 and E16 who are very active and energetic. They began to establish a so-called pecking order right out of the shell. Their vigorous tussles will serve them well as they grow and learn survival skills to last their lifetimes. These timeless miracles never cease to enthrall all who observe.
