Liberty and Freedom sure stick to the bald eagle schedule! True to our expectations, the chicks hatched two days apart, mirroring their laying interval. This week, many of us have likely been sneaking peaks at the Hanover nest every chance we get, soaking up what can objectively be described as adorable offspring.

The first hatchling is here! At approximately 9:20 this morning a tiny, beautiful, scrunched up altricial baby eagle unfolded into our world. There can be no doubting it now, Spring is here.

Right now, while Liberty and Freedom are sitting on a nest, there are thousands of bald eagles engaged in flight, returning to breeding grounds to begin the process themselves. Hawk watch sites across North America are reporting sightings, and on March 21st Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory in Duluth Minnesota broke their previous one-day count for bald eagles with a whopping 1,076!

This week another intruder event was documented at the Hanover nest, eliciting an array of vocalizations from the incubating parent. When witnessing this type of behavioral interaction, it may seem odd that another eagle would try to disrupt Liberty and Freedom at this stage in the breeding season. Is it to steal a mate? A territory? The nest site?

Have you ever wondered what is responsible for the color of bird eggs? In your brief glimpses of the eggs on the Hanover nest you have probably noticed they are white. The causes of egg coloration have been a topic of much debate throughout the history of oology (the study of eggs).

Last Friday evening the second egg of the clutch was laid! Both embryos have now been developing for at least a week, and the first-born should be on the verge of looking somewhat bird-like. While a 9-day old chick doesn’t look convincingly avian, by day 11 the beak and limbs appear more formed, and the eyelids begin closing. Though veiled from our eyes, each day these little chicks are developing more and more eagle characteristics, all made possible by the very crucial parental behavior of incubation.

Eaglet on the Way! At approximately 5:07 on Tuesday evening, the moment we’ve been waiting for finally arrived in the form of an oval-like, mostly white, rough-textured, beautiful EAGLE EGG! Congratulations to Liberty and Freedom; we are all eager to see what lies in store for this brand-new addition to the Hanover nest.

As you may have seen, Liberty and Freedom have copulated at the nest! If this was a successful attempt, we would expect eggs to appear in the next 5-10 days. This was not only an uplifting reminder that snowstorms don’t damper their baby-making mood, but also an opportunity to delve into the physiological processes that follow insemination.'

Happy belated Valentine’s Day to the Hanover eagles! Love is likely in the air, seeing as the first egg at this nest has historically been laid around this time, and copulation may occur soon if it has not already.
