Kind of a grainy picture from the night cam;

Ok, now the cool part begins. Watching and waiting for the first egg to hatch.



From the Raptor Research FaceBook page;

"As Sherri Elliott pointed out here on facebook, 2014 almost exactly mirrors 2011. So if hatch occurs as it did then, we should see hatch #1 on April 1, hatch #2 on April 3, and hatch #3 on April 6. However, eagle eggs can take from 35 to 39 days to hatch, and the spring of 2011 was unusually warm and dry. If we go with the 39 day figure given this year's extreme cold, hatch #1 should start on April 5, hatch #2 on April 8, and hatch #3 on April 12.

In short, we're predicting that the hatch could start any time between April 1st and April 5 based on what we know about the eggs, the eagles, and the weather. We'll be watching Mom & Dad as they roll the eggs to see if they just roll them, or if they stop and stare, looking for a pip hole or listening for a chirp from inside the shell, and offering chirps back as encouragement for the chick to chink away at the egg. The pipping process can take from 12-24 hours before the hatchling emerges. Stay tuned!

We may have first pip today. They aren't positive, but it looks like it. Hopefully confirmation will come soon.

How cute. Dad relieved mom on the nest, and mom went out for a fish dinner.

Pip is likely, but still technically not confirmed.

OK, I finally got a great shot of the pip, it's pretty big!! How very cool! We should have a chick in 24 hours or so.

Add- Chester, that's the shot I just saw, wonderful picture!! I think you can see the egg tooth even.

this is going to be interesting, it's the earliest I've started watching, before this the eggs were always hatched
