The first egg hatched 11th Jan 2012 in the early morning . Both parents look on  This is the first eaglet of the 2012 nesting season  to be hatched. Happy New Nesting season everybody. Unfortunately the sounds you here are for the Decorah nest . This nest does not have sound .

Thank you for the videos, Sparkie.  Those babies are sooo cute.  They need to learn to "touch the beak!"
