I agree with Sandra that it looks too big to be the head of an eaglet. I could be wrong.

There has been an eagle in the nest for about a week now, seems to be on track.

Took a return walk with the binoculars and from the top of the parking lot on the south side of Hastings St. the one eagle head I saw on the center of the nest stuck out like a sore thumb in direct sunlight....easy spot.........

..........Oh by the way the single eagle on the new nest was sitting down in the exact same spot during my entire visit.....looks like egg time fingers crossed




Thanks for the great shot, Heather, and I think you are right!

Taking into consideration the above posts by Scott and Steamer, that would make egg laying anywhere between March 11-18 and hatching between Apr 15-22 which would put an eaglet in the 7-10 day age bracket allowing for first egg delay (with no egg delay we are looking at possibly up to a two week old chick!). I think you have indeed captured a fluffball! The reported observations set timelines that certainly uphold the possibility and a 10 day old chick could quite conceivably be that big!!

It looks like we are off to a great start this season at Hastings! Very Happy

Thank you for the detailed response Sharon! I hope you're right! We have a local nest that has produced an eaglet big enough to pose for pictures. It is just the size of the head that made me wonder if it could be an eaglet.

Hi everyone, the Stalashen nest has an eaglet so maybe Heather this is an eaglet the white looks too small to me to be an adult eagle head. I see feeding motions in the Stalashen nest too through my telescope maybe next time you go you may observe a feeding. Waiting for an update. Grin

Hi everyone

Thank you for the nice pictures Heather.
I don't know what that is in the picture you took of the nest Heather, it looks so big.
The Hastings pair do have eaglets that are around 2 weeks old I am sure.
When the weather is nice ma and pa are sitting up in the nest but I have not seen any eaglets myself yet.


Stan and I were at the nest on Sat. and this is what we saw:

It wasn't the size of the head as much as it didn't look fuzzy enough to be a chick. When my nest view still existed the beginning of May is the time so could be.

wave Friends of these Eagles,

I canít imagine what else it could be Heather.
When I was at the nest today as I pulled into the parking lot Pa had just left the nest.
He didnít go far , giving me enough time to set up my camera . He landed on the branch just above the nest,
5 minutes later Ma joins him on the branch , they have a little chat about how proud they are. 5 minutes later Ma fly's off
and Pa stays on the branch for about 10 more minutes then drops gently into the nest.
So I wouldnít think they would be off the nest that long unless the chicks were big enough.
Unfortunately no feeding or sign of little oneís ( next time )

Hi everyone

So yes Heather you got the first shot of our little one, very nice. Very Happy

Today Stan and I visited the Hastings nest at the right time.

Ma was feeding her Chick(s) which must be the same age as the Delta 2 chicks.
We don't know how many eaglets they have. We only saw one today.
