The 3rd egg hatched early this morning. The 1st clue that this probably had happened was the 1/2 shell laying in front of the formel.

soph, this is from the KGW Red Tailed Raptor Cam and applies to these eyasses since they're about 1-3 days old: Source: http://www.kgw.com/community/blogs/rapt ... valry.html

Some people have wondered whether they are already fighting with one another. They tend to whack into one another pretty often and also appear to be pecking at one another. The answer is probably not---they don't see very well yet. They are probably just responding to one anther's movement and that is causing them to try and nose about for food. Noise and movement will trigger a feeding response. Their necks are not very strong yet so they tend to flop all over the place. As they get older however, they will become more aggressive in trying to take the food that the parents bring into the nest.

One scap from April 23rd - the tiercel brought a pigeon. He's proving to be a very good hunter and provider Smile

Saturday the 24th. After a feeding where each eyass got a bite, the formel took off and returned with a piece of black plastic. She covered the eyasses with it, but when she got up it was stuck in her left talon. She'd take a step and drag it along with her. Apparently when she flew off the nest it was wrapped around her legs.
