You can see the eaglet when they exchanged places.

There is what looks like three fish laying in the nest; two by the eagle's feet and one North of the eaglet, though that one could be a squirrel.

I like the way the parent eagle is looking at the little one. Just waiting for the little guy to get out of the shell all by itself. Then being ready to take care of the rest. The parent knows the little guy will be hungry and also that their must be food ready for the parents so they don't have to leave the nest often for a while.

I really don't know how much a new born eagle eats but mom and dad seem to be prepared.

How much does a newborn eat?

I've looked around and found nothing definitive. One site says it depends:
Quote:
Q. How much food does an eaglet require daily?
A. That would depend upon the eaglet's age, weight, growth stage, level of activity, and other physiological factors; requirement thus varies or changes from day to day.

This one says:
Quote:
Eaglet Growth - The young birds grow rapidly, they add one pound to their body weight every four or five days. At about two weeks, it is possible for them to hold their head up for feeding.
By three weeks they are 1 foot high and their feet and beaks are very nearly adult size.
Between four and five weeks, the birds are able to stand, at which time they can began tearing up their own food.
At six weeks, the eaglets are very nearly as large as their parents.
At eight weeks, the appetites of the young birds are at their greatest. While parents hunt almost continuous to feed them, back at the nest the eaglets are beginning to stretch their wings in response to gusts of wind and may even be lifted off their feet for short periods.

Source about half way down: Bald Eagle Nesting & Young - American Bald Eagle Information
If an eaglet gains one pound in four to five days, I would think in my humble opinion the eaglet would have to eat at least that much to gain that much in that time frame (3.2ozs per day - 0.09kg). You also have to consider the waste products produced by the eaglets digestive process, that one pound could be a pound and a quarter/half in four to five days.

It's hard to tell, but this may be the Mom feeding the eaglet or helping the other one emerge from its shell:

She's been doing this every few minutes. Taken at 3:25pm edt (19:25 UTC)


I have noticed since the eaglet was born between yesterday evening and this morning it has become increasingly difficult for the Live Bald Eagle Nest Cam | HDOnTap.com | and PA Game Commission sites to finish loading and you may see a "Server Time Out" or even an access denied if the page loads, I attribute this to the increased demand from the public.

If this happens just reload the page, in some of my attempts I've had to try up to four times, but I eventually got in.

I really appreciate you going to the trouble of monitoring the eagle cam for us and posting pictures of significant moments. I, for one, simply don't have the patience for that. Thanks again!

You're welcome LF, it's my pleasure,

I don't spend a lot of time watching I use an observation that I learned. Animals tend to be most active a half hour before Sunrise to a half hour after Sunset, lets say twilight and dusk, and those are the times that I concentrate on. I've notice it can be dark here, but the cam will still show activity up to 45minutes before Sunrise or after Sunset.

I will admit that now that the eaglets are here, I may be spending a little more time watching.

I'm thinking that a baby eagle grows that fast it must eat a lot.

Feedin' Time!

Caught this action from 8:45am edt to 9:10am edt (12:45 - 13:10UTC) Second eaglet has hatched, both parents, and feeding. Even though the camera has a fish-eye lens, I would think that is dad that's brooding/feeding and mom is the smaller one on the rim of the nest, she left to hunt.

In the third, fourth, and fifth pics it's the older one being feed, but the new arrival gets a bit in the last frame.

It is getting worse to get, and stay on the cam site, all of the local TV stations are sponsoring their own feeds.

Sure didn't take long for the fish they had save to be gone.

No it didn't, but there are some, see the yellow highlights, they're easier to see when live. I suspect it's a balance between the feeding of the eaglets and the parents regaining their strength. You can also see some housecleaning with the broken shell outside of the immediate nesting area.

You may also be able to pick out white spots on the parents back, the area is due for freezing rain and sleet this morning changing to rain later in the area highlighted. It's just starting to move in where I'm at.
