Eagles Update April 13, 2014 – And A Grand Hatching Sunday!

Good Evening Fellow CrackedEggCatchers!

So I got up extra, extra early(I am in California remember) just to see if we had a hatch over night and of course ended up spending most of the day waiting for the big event. My predicted hatch time of 10:42 am came and went with a whimper (my streak of correct predictions ended at 1) and finally at 3:11pm we were treated to a short glimpse of the newest addition to the eagle world. 

Mom and Dad were both reluctant to give us looks today because of the harsh, cold 30mph north winds that were rocking the tree. They did have no problem however having choir practice a lot today whilst chewing out the neighbors for getting to close to the fence. After the hatch Dad brought Mom and new hatchling a fairly large fishtail for tomorrows inaugural breakfish of the season. Hopefully Arky will be hungry enough to eat tomorrow. 

The hatch today did not dampen pip fever one bit as a lot of chatters were seeing phantom pips in both of the other eggs even as Arky entered the world. I expect that we will probably see a second pip tomorrow at the earliest.And that is if Mom and Dad cooperate and give us some better looks than we had today. The wind is supposed to die down overnight and a slight warmup is to occur the next two days so the seeing prospects are looking up!

I must thank BBC for the marvelous job they did today zooming for us when it was needed. Great job, Guys!!

The pics and vids for today were great as usual.

    Loved the videos, kept me “up to date” when I had to leave the computer and actually get some work done. Thankfully, I was here for our first peek at Arky. How adorable!! Another informative blog, Talon! Thanks! Keep on keeping on!
