Iowa Bald Eagles ready to hatch their eggs. LIVE!
Edited by hpmsrm on Apr 3, 2011 at 4:23:07 PM

Two Eagles....in the nest.....with eggs just about to hatch.  I believe it is a live video.  I noticed that there are an awful lot of folks watching.  This is in NE Iowa near the town of Decorah.  NE Iowa is pretty much dairy country....hilly and lots of forest and woods with cliffs and rock formations.  Not too far from the Mississippi River.   Have a look while it is is still daylight.

 

I rushed to get this posted for all our wildlife lovers. Hope I'm correct on my facts.

Good one, Skeeter.  Ya know....sometimes that camera distorts our perspective.  That nest is about 6 feet in diameter and that eagle is probably around 5 feet long.  The eggs are reported to be just a little smaller than a tennis ball.  It's difficult for me to visualize those size relationships from the images we are seeing.  That nest weighs in at around half a ton according to the preserve director.  This male eagle is about 13 years old and his current mate is around 9 they believe.  She is his second mate.  #1 apparently died several years ago.....during winter I believe but I'm not sure about that.  As long as both live they will remain monogamous. (normally)

Hooray!  Mom laid her 3rd egg last evening.....2/24/12 at about 8:05 PM.  First time we got to see all three eggs was almost 12:30 AM this morning.  There is video of both occasions.

 

When I checked the temperature in Decorah, IA at around 3:00 AM it was 12 degrees with a wind chill of 1 degree.  But I guess eggs are like babies.....they choose their own time to come.

 

This morning pop is taking his turn at keeping them warm and the camera guy zoomed in for some close-ups.  Really sharp image:

 



I have yet to check the videos of the laying but my adult son in law asked how did the "experts" know that she laid the third one @ exactly 9:06 PM ET?  Was there screeching?  A pop?  or ??? Lol. Smiley Tongue

Well it was bound to happen and it did last night, the  youngest of the three chicks passed away.  The other two chicks are healthy and growing rapidly, the little one just wasn't getting enough to eat. 

 

On a good note, there is activity at the 2nd nest at Sooner Lake now so it looks like we'll have eggs soon and about 5 weeks later little ones to watch there.  35 days from egg laying to hatch and 10-13 weeks after that to first flight

Thanks OUFan. 

 

Back to the Decorah Eagles, for a sec.  I found a site that has lots of info on the Eagles and a  page of still video captures, made every two minutes.  The times (i.e 7 AM, 10 PM and so on) aren't accurate but it is neat to see how they change sitting and such, even within an hour.  Click here.

The Sooner Lake nest has a chick.  Looks like the eagles are using the same nest as last year with major upgradesto the nest.  The team just got the camera working so they have been there for a while now since it's 35 days from laying to hatching.

I knew the nests could be big, but was reading more details that they can be up to 1 ton!  Mom and Dad could possibly add up to 200 lbs. of materials a year!  5 ft. deep, 6 ft. across and no power tools!  Amazing creatures.

It's pretty amazing how they build those nests isn't it.  Just think the one in Iowa is 80 feet off the ground.  That tree has to be pretty stong to be able to withstand a 2000 nest that high up.

It's time!  According to my U-Stream app, the Decorah Eagles should be hatching this weekend - with the first to hatch March 23-25th.  The Richmond Virginia eagles hatched last weekend.

 

The Philadelphia Eagles are still just a big, fat egg, however. Smiley Tongue Smiley Very Happy

It's called a "pip" until it completely emerges from the shell which can take up to 48 hours.

 

We got a pip Mon. at around 2pm and D12 (as it will be called) is slowly making his appearance.

 

Edit:  Looks like he finally hatched at 1:16p on Tues.  He was a fast one!

Yeah....we were hearing "clicking" sounds last evening and I noticed late this afternoon, when pop got up to turn around, that one egg has a fair size hole in it.  I imagine it is the first one laid.   I notice that both mom and dad have been quite restless.  So they know what's going on.

As of this morning...two little eaglets have hatched and one egg still remains in the waiting line.  This rather soft focus image was captured from a video recorded this afternoon as mom is attempting to feed her tiny newborns with very small bites from a nearby carcass brought earlier by poppa eagle.

Awesome!  Thanks for the Video and Photos.  I have been watching webcams since the mid 90's.  From Times Square, to the Arc de Triomphe, to Old Faithful they have made the world a bit smaller.

I'm now following 3 sets of eagles, two eaglets at Vian and one at Sooner Lake on the Sutton site and now the two eaglets at Decorah.  The ones at Vian should be fledging soon whereas the one at Sooner Lake is only a couple of weeks old and the two at Decorah are a couple of days old.  Fun to watch the progress.

There are others, too, on UStream.  Catalina Island in California, Richmond VA and one in NC.  I also look at the Feline Rescue Center in Ohio.  Those cats KNOW when it's feeding time!

I guess some folks just watch the little ones all the time.  But I just check once in a while.  Mornings are the best time.

 

Mom let the three eaglets out  for a little fresh air and sun today.  All three are in this image but only two heads are visible.  They still get around with great difficulty:

Both mom and pop feeding fish breakfast to their family of three eaglets.  I had not witnessed this before.  When I've been watching it's always just been either mom OR dad doing the feeding but not both.  Interesting.

Thanks for the photos!  I haven't had time to watch lately, but don't recall seeing both parents feeding last year.  Amazing parents!
