Eagle chick 'number one' has hatched!
If you haven't hear the news then I am happy to report to you that the first eagle egg has hatched on BRI eaglecam2. It hatched sometime during the night. In the image above captured by JO in our online community (thanks JO), you can see the chick on its first day being fed by an adult.
As may be apparent eagle eggs hatch asynchronously usually two or three days apart. This strategy gives the older bird a head start and better chance of survival in years of food shortage.
Well, I am sure that everyone is looking forward to watching the season continue to unfold. Enjoy a wonderful day!
All the Best,
