Broken egg or dead chick, there is really only three outcomes..

The egg or the carcass just becomes part of the nest.
The egg or carcass is eaten.
The egg or carcass is removed from the nest.

Sometimes it is a combination of all three. The eagles live in the Now, and with two more eggs life has to go on.

So the "Hatch Watch" starts in about five days. The clock is based on the first egg laid, but it is thought that the first egg may have been the egg that was broken so first hatch could be a few days later.

Not an eagle, but it does show the avian embryonic development.

Well Decorah North has a new hatch with a first feeding today.

Decorah Eagles are a couple of days behind the North nest, but hatch is days away.

Decorah Eagles have the first pip today. That means an impending hatch if want to view or share with classrooms or others. One egg of the three was broken. This hatching egg is likely the second of the three eggs based on the hatch history of 35-39 days from laid.

Hatch is impending for the first eaglet of the season. It is pretty cool to share with the kids.

So now both Decorah eaglets have hatched. Next phase of the adventure begins.

Default A little eagle drama to start the day.

After a feeding, D32 is somehow hooked to Mom. Just as she is launching from the nest, her oldest eaglet drops to the nest but is still outside the nest cup for the male to cover.
