Aww Sad

Thanks for bringing the news here, mia. I was thinking I was only seeing two eggs so checked Savannah Eagle's Facebook page. I also saw a response in the "posts by others" section, saying that Friday was the earliest we could expect a hatch. Today is day 34 for the first egg, so I'm wondering if they mark the eggs so know which one they lost.

Here are a couple of pictures - first one is from 3:04 pm, and shows Derek leaving with Savannah waiting in the wings, so to speak, with only her beak visible:

The second is from 3:28 pm, with Savannah taking a stretch.

Here's hoping for a good year for Savannah, Derek and the remaining two eggs. love

I know it is a moot point but could one of the eggs have been damaged by that limb? I wonder what the eagles did with it?
I hope soon both hatch and grow into glorious chicks,

It's possible, carolyn, but the video with the limb was from February 1st, and I was watching on the 2nd and all three eggs looked fine. I'm thinking if it had been cracked, that would have been obvious by the next day, and if the damage was more subtle, it would take longer for the egg to fail. But I'm not an eagle. love

There is a video on the Savannah Eagle facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/SavannahEagle?fref=ts), but it's speeded up to the point that I can't tell what happened. I know when I hear an egg is not viable, I have the impression that it failed early in the development process if it developed at all - but I don't know how they are using the term.

Hi everyone!!!

Just wanted to come out and check on Savannah and Derek. I see they had an egg that wasn't viable. Here's hoping the remaining eggs result in two darling little bobbles.

Just love this pair!
