11:12 Mom on the nest and I am seeing her listening also.

11:49 EAgle very alert to 3 side of nest. It is going into the high 70's or low 80's today so I am glad there is cloud cover right now.

12:10 to 12:13 Parent I think its mom, is up near 11. The 3 eggs look intact. Then down over eggs, rolls them, and back to face 9 and incubate. The sun is shining here now.

Elf has seen a pip as of 13:01 cst. It was on the egg in middle of the grouping. I will try to catch it. Parents have also brought fish into the nest and covered it with bedding.

Here is Elf's snap from 1:01 cst posted with permission.

5:08 The last time I saw the eggs was 1:03. Since then the eagle has been incubating and the 2 times it was up to check eggs or roll them it blocked the view. So nothing new to report on the pip.

I am out to get dinner.

We have first hatchling at Davenport nest.

Eggshell can be seen along the 3 side of the nest.

The eaglet is just under dad as he broods. Notice the soft gray coloring there.

Chick is at about 7 position in front of the other eggs.

There was a fierce thunderstorm over the nest early this morning. The chick was seen when Justice, the dad, came to relieve mom at 6:25 or so.
