We are so blessed to have this turn of events. With what we thought to be a disaster has proven to be a wonderful bonus. I loved seeing the chick with its wobbly little head. I guess what we saw the parent eating was actually them feeding the fledgling chick. Mother Mature scores another one. Thank you so much for this video.

Feeding again at 2pm. One flew off and then came back and we could see it was the male he had a hard time getting his left foot over a branch on the nest he is feeding as I type. Snowing hard here in New Gloucester. Settling down again @.12:12 Moving sticks around. Any one Know why there was a truck so close?.

Fed again at 2:45 and then they traded places.. Took a while before settled in. I think noises of another bird (maybe hawk), made her cover up the young. Snow real heavy now will be at nest site soon… Hope their as tough as last years eaglets..

At around 3:41 or so, Momma (loud voice!) was making alot of racket. Then she stood up and fluffed all out, spreading her wings. Dad landed on the branch that we can see. She did some dancing and then dove into the food.

Just logged into the cam to find mom madly picking apart some sort of food - I'm guessing a bird, as it looks like she's trying to pluck it in order to get to the edible part. I didn't tune in in time to see the food being brought in, but I have no doubt other watchers witnessed every detail.

Now she's settled down in the nest, facing the ocean. I didn't really see her feed the chick at all. Maybe she simply prepared it for a later feeding.

I can definitely see a black wing of a bird that the adult eagle just moved as she lays in the nest.

Mom was hollering and Dad showed up and Mom manteled (I missed it if he brought the food but he must have) and Mom started to eat. Funny though, it looked like she was tossing some of it away. Baby didn't eat this time. Dad also stayed for a minute and then left.

@ 12:40 pm Pacific Time 3:40 pm Eastern Time Heard mom made a few calls from the nest. A minute or so later dad arrived and she stood and sheltered the nest with her wings semi open and next we saw her busily plucking feathers off of what dad had given her. She proceeded to devour some of the bird but left it on the side of the nest to warm the chick. What a joy to be whiteness to all this and even more so now that I know dad from mom. Thanks for the bad hair info. :)

I have just looked at the close-up video in Wing's most recent post. And I believe there is indeed another chick on the left. It moves before Mom moves around the nest and again when she goes over near it, and she looks both ways to each chick when she is settling in. Also, in the STILLS of the feeding around 3:50 and thereafter, she is reaching into both the left side and the right side. Feeding both?

I CANNOT TELL BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO GET LIVE FEED SINCE THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY ON MONDAY. The BRI site video blinks and goes blank. The NWF link won't play because of Error C00D11B1 which is triggered by Code 80040241 "source filter for file could not be loaded."

Is anyone else having similar problems? Are all of the hundreds of posts today on the blog and the forum being made by those who have their live feeds on all day?

I have been keeping track of this site for weeks on an intermittent basis. I never had problems with live feed until mid-day on Monday. I am so disappointed.

They are going to need it if it snows there like it is here in new Gloucester. We have 3 plus inches now. And it is coming down hard, it started snowing here at 1pm. Should be hitting there soon. They are hardy Maine stock so they should all right through this. Heard mate in back ground at 4:30 and the one in nest answered back.

Have been watching mother eagle eat whatever carrion is in the nest and feed chick/chicks for a few minutes around 5:25. I think it sounds like a chick peeping while she is feeding it so am thinking there might be another one too. She seemed to feed it in one spot and then another. Could just be my imagination though.

Glad to see a happy outcome to all of the suspense of whether the eggs would hatch.

Any evidence of more than one? I know there appears to be feathers at about 7 on/in the nest, but I don't see any "chick" behavior...bobble heads...or change of position. Maybe we are in for another surprise soon.

I would have to assume, since there were no eggs visible from the flyover and the birds stayed away from the nest for extended times, the eggs must have been buried/covered in the nest by the adult birds. This would explain the moving and rearranging in the nest bowl for so long. It would keep the eggs warm while the adult birds were gone.

Glad we have a hatch-ling to watch grow and fledged this year.

California Kid

The watching of the feedings of the bird that was brought to the nest makes me wonder also if we are not seeing the parent feeding two chicks. First one would be fed with the parents head cocked one way and the nest with the head cocked the other. Also thought the chicks were getting some pretty big bites but who am I to judge, as they seemed to handle it. I think, as the chicks get bigger we will see more clearly there are two of them. It sure was interesting watching mom strip that bird of the unwanted feathers.

Thank you all for allowing is to be a part of this and for the great blogs. I am awe struck and glued to my seat. Now they have to weather another storm. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

I just made a donation. I want to thank Wing for providing us with this unique opportunity to observe these eagles close up. I only discovered the eagle cam recently and love watching the eagles as well as reading all the blogs and comments. I like the name "Little Wing" that has been suggested as a thanks to Wing.
Don't forget to make a donation to support this cam if you are able.

I captured that mesmerizing glare at the end of the feeding video. Hopefully it views god for all… I am going to work on getting a still of the eaglet for you. Hard to get it clear but I will.

We are having a winter storm. Let's hope they will be able to weather it. We have about 6 inches of snow in NH. It hasn't changed to rain except for on the coast. Thank you for all the wonderful views at briloon. It's been great. The eagles are a majestic creature.

I didn't get much work done today, thanks to the Eagles! I heard the chick(s) often when the parent was standing up. At 3:37 pm the male (I assume) delivered a large bird - female plucked it with great fanfare, ate until 3:47 and sat back down. Returned to eating 4:15, and at 4:19 appeared to feed the chick. At 4:24 stopped feeding and sat back on chick. I could see the baby moving - a little blob - the camera needs to be aimed better though, someimes most of the nest is out of the picture. I was also watching a live woodcock in my backyard - he's still there and he's been here since around 2 pm at least. See him on my Bird Page http://home.gwi.net/~photoartgal/Birds

4/12/07 8:10pm....I watched the dinner feeding and (at this time) I think there is only one chick! As Mom feed the baby, she continued to feed in the same area. She did not feed to the left or any other area. She gently handed food over and over again to the exact same spot. NOT TO SAY, another egg won't hatch tonight or tommorrow! Time will tell.....

Just beautiful. Thank you so much for your catching that. Even the close up of Mom is so amazing. It makes it so clear why our forefathers chose this particular animal as our national symbol.

Judy--you the woman! Thank you for these GREAT videos of the new arrival(s?)! It's a huge help to those of us who would rather be watching Bale Eaglecam but can't always... :-)

I'm guessing there will only be the one chick because there is no apparent egg rolling/turning happening anymore. It completely ended when the chick hatched. However, we all know all little we know!

Could someone tell me how to tell the difference between Mom and Dad? Do they have names?
Thanks.

Judy thanks so much for sharing this wonderful video. I live in California and get up every morning to see what's happened. In the evening I check to listen to the weather. Can't believe what that poor Eagle goes through. Karyn
