Harriet has two eggs in the nest, and one is starting to hatch!!!

For two days, we've been told that the little one is going to make its appearance "any moment, now". Well, there are definite cracks in the egg, and we hope to have a baby eagle soon!

For those who have similar eagle cams or cams for other blessed events, feel free to share here.

Our Harriet lost Ozzie last year, but found a new mate afterwards, thankfully.

Facebook had her on live last night. At one point she jumped up abruptly, and a bunch of us were joking that the egg was kicking.

She certainly seems done with those bugs. [Big Grin]

The new guy is called "M15", for those who are curious.

Oh thank you! I was eager for eagles a few days ago and a quick check at my usual Hanover Pa and Minnesota nests told me I needed to hang on for a few months -- but now I have this nice Florida nest!

I've had my heart broken with these things, a fledgling in Estonia had me grieving for days, but it's like my pets, I keep letting myself in for it again. The trip up to the heart break is worth it somehow.

(20 minutes later) OK, what I meant to say was, one big chip of shell just fell off!

Gee, I never was here for the hatching part before. Didn't realized how incremental it was.

Family portrait.

Just watched the changing of the parents. It was really cold this morning, so, I'm very glad of the feather bed and comforter the eagles provide! It's 75 here now, and might be a degree or two cooler north of the river where the eagles are.

I saw the beak bump! I saw it, too!

I note that copious gifts of grossly aging fish are to be seen, as well.

I thought I saw the pip last night!

E8 has quite a headstart on whoever is hiding in the second egg. Hopefully they both grow well and start another generation of mighty eagles!!!

Some have said the second pip turned out to be a dirt clump. Egg 2 may be a dud. [Frown]

I jumped on the NBC news feed on FB tonight, and it was ... eye opening. The primates on the feed, I mean.

There are several people who don't get how infrared works and who are insisting the lights have cooked the egg and is irradiating the parents.

There is some rumor going around that if you type 123hatch into the facebook feed, you can jump ahead ( in time, presumably) to see the egg hatch.

And of course, a sprinkling of terribly original and clever remarks about scrambled eggs, rotisserie eagle, etc.

The good news is the sensible far outweighed the stupid, but still.

Some dodo brain posted on FB that as soon as E9 fledges, it'll be taken away and Harriet and M15 will be returned to their cages in some research facility. Um. No.

I let him know that the wild eagles are totally free and fly over my house frequently. Ozzie and one of last year's eaglets were rehabilitated at C.R.O.W. when they were injured, but were released to the wild as soon as they were able to do so.

Where do these people get their stoopid ideas?

There was some boneheads there last night. Every time M15 swatted a fly, that stupid 123hatch thing popped up.

I missed 2 or 3 days, only peaking in quickly to see that they were still there -- and today -- all of a sudden --E9 is a fuzzy pterodactyl!

My favorite age. [Axe murder]

I think the folks have done a little clean-up. No big fish left-overs. And does anyone know if they pushed out the dud egg?

Last time I got a look at it it was there, but a bit caved in looking. On the site it says they sometimes let it sink into the nest, or bury it into the layers.
