First Bald Eagle Chick at Fort St. Vrain Nest!


The first bald eagle chick at the Fort St. Vrain nest has just hatched! In the first screen shots I took this morning, the eagles hadn’t even moved the egg shell out from under the adult!

Eaglet #1 is presented to the world.

According to the Excel website, the chick made it’s way into the world about 10:00 last night.

The eaglet is still a little wobbly on it’s legs, and has momentarily dropped out of sight.

Good comparison of father (left) with mother (right). In an earlier post, I said I thought the male was bigger, but the Excel Power biologist says it is the female (as is normally the case).

Mother and chick (and father) are all doing fine.
