Sunday afternoon, the female eagle buried the second egg under some nesting materials. While one or both eagles spent the night on branches near the nest, and the male eagle was on the nest Monday morning, we believe that the second egg is nonviable. This means either that it wasn't fertilized, or that the embryo in the egg did not develop. We were all hoping for a better nesting season this year, but it is important to remember that we are witnessing nature in action.

We are heartbroken to report that B14 has died overnight, seemingly from exposure, and was at least partially consumed by one of the parents. We must keep in mind that this is not an uncommon occurrence in many eagle nests.

Please remember that viewing wild animals in their environment can be difficult at times for humans to watch.

We will continue to monitor the second egg for any pips, and will keep you all updated.

It appears we may have the first pip this morning! We're keeping a close eye on the situation as the day progresses.

Check out our interview with Dr. Renee Carleton, professor of biology, about recent happenings at the nest! She discusses the new resident female, confirms that this does appear to be the same male, and more.

We are aware of concerns regarding the status of the resident female eagle, whether or not the resident male eagle has taken the new female as a mate, and what that means for this nesting season. Our eagle experts are monitoring the situation carefully and we will bring you information when they are certain. We are also working on a Q&A session with Dr. Renee Carleton, professor of biology, to address specific concerns.
