Hanover Bald Eagle Blog #29

June 2019

Upon review of the footage, the scramble for ownership over a fish seems to be at the center of the commotion resulting in Star’s exit.

For many raptors, we rely mostly on size.

Many of you are likely wondering when the Hanover eaglets will begin to show signs of wanting to leave the nest. While we can’t say for sure they ever truly want to leave the free food and good company of their home, bald eagles often fledge around 80 days after hatching. We are now at about 50 days since the first egg hatched.
