    Decorah Eagles: 3 Egg Hatching?

    Someone posted on facebook that the 3rd egg is hatching. The Cam just shows the mom on the nest.
    Confirmation anyone?

    There was a closeup of the egg earlier this afternoon, and there seemed to be movement but I think it was from the other eaglets. It should be hatching shortly though.

    Re: Decorah Eagles: 3 Egg Hatching?

    This pair has a good history of all eagelets surviving but this year the first born is
    extra aggresive and seems to realize that its a battle of the fittest. I watched him peck
    the 2nd born into submission and take the remaining food. That doesnt bode well for the last little
    guy.Big predator birds only have 1 or 2 eggs ...with the 3rd as insurance if something were to happen.

    All that said...last year this same pair had all 3 survive. The third littlest one had a hard time but he made it.Those of you who followed last year remember this well.
    Lets all hope for the same outcome.I love rooting for the underdog.

    As far as its a 4th grader running the camera....LOL at you...actually its
    usually the Director of the Raptor Center.He has a PH.D in Ornithology.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    I noticed him doing that the other day. He zoomed in when they were eating something and then when they were done it was just a close-up of feathers. Must have had to go into some deep reflection of what he just saw on the throne.
