“Bear with us”

The same wonderful technology that gives us the opportunity to view this nest can also bring us to a halt! The neccessary parts to fix the network issues are on order.

We haven't missed any of the action...no eaglets yet! The parents continue to incubate and care for the eggs.

The embryos are fairly well developed by now but still need to continue to grow and mature before these eaglets will be ready to hatch. The cold snap was a challenge to the parents who had to ensure that the the eggs didn't become chilled.

If all goes well, we should expect eggs to start hatching late next week (or early the following week)
