I haven't been over to the Hancock topic, but our morning TV news said there were two eaglets in the nest ?

Yes, indeed the Delta 2 nest has two bobbleheads. Trouble getting to the topic to see when the nd hatched. Very slow over there.

I was volunteering at the school library and missed the second hatch!

Mom (or Dad) waited about ten minutes before feeding the babies. On high alert or waiting for the other one to arrive?

Second hatch: 4/12

This seems to be egg-hatching time in many places!   :thumbup:

Delta O.W.L. Nest:



Video:  Dad Helps with the Night Shift

Good old Dad! Unfortunately, too much time has passed for the first egg to be viable. These eagles are so devoted. Breaks my heart that they've had such bad luck: Two eggs didn't hatch in 2009. Nest destroyed in 2010. We had hoped 2011 would be their good luck year.

Video:  Dadís Dilemma

I believe this is Dad on the nest. He leaves for four minutes, 45 seconds. When he returns, he can't quite decide whether to settle onto the eggs or stand up and look around. He's alert, but no frantic calls.
