It looks like Liberty and Freedom aren’t quite ready to move out. As many of you have noticed, both eagles have been contributing material, feeding, and generally hanging out. This level of activity is a welcome reprieve from the site of an empty nest. However, it may be a prudent practice for us all maintain expectations in line with Bald Eagle ecology, which suggests that a double clutch is possible, yet very unlikely.

Today is the 46th day since the Hanover egg was laid. Unfortunately, your speculations are correct: at this point, the nest has failed. The “hatch window” for bald eagles is between 34 and 38 days, with 35 days being the average. There have been rare accounts of eggs hatching later, however I could not find any mention of eggs hatching past 44 days.

The transition between seasons sometimes brings rain and snow to the Hanover nest, and while Liberty and Freedom seemed unphased, one wonders how they withstand the onslaught of the elements. After all, humans rely upon raincoats, umbrellas and weather reports to exist in the outdoors with inclement weather, and that’s only if we leave our homes.

This week Liberty and Freedom have been diligently incubating the Hanover egg, constantly keeping the developing embryo warm. For many raptors, males and females share incubation duties early on in the nesting season. There are, however, other strategies employed by raptors whose life histories differ from bald eagles.

It’s incredible to think that Liberty and Freedom were once strangers. Although we speculate that Liberty and Freedom share more than just a tolerance for each other, we will never truly know what the relational dynamics are like between two wild animals. Therefore, the mystery of pair bonds remains. This Valentine’s Day, let’s take a hint from our feathered friends and do something nice for the people we love, even if they tend to bring home the wrong size sticks.
