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.

eagle-update-030420.jpgWhile the male eagle persists in incubating—and may continue to do so for a couple of weeks—we haven't seen the female eagle sit on the egg in about a week. That doesn't mean she's not in the area, however!

She is still visiting the nest regularly, bringing in sticks and hay that she has used to partially cover the nonviable egg at least once. With this in mind, it is likely we will see the pair bury this egg in the near future.

sad-eagle.jpgWe are sad to announce that sometime this morning, one egg appears to have been crushed. While it is possible the egg was not viable from the start, there is no way to tell for certain. We must keep in mind that this is not an uncommon occurrence in many eagle nests. The parents may move the crushed egg to the side of the nest, bury it or completely remove it from the nest area.

As the second egg appears intact, and is still within the potential hatching window, we remain hopeful for one healthy eaglet.

EggNumber2.jpgEgg number two has arrived! Thanks to several of our intrepid eagle watchers, who pinpointed its arrival time at about 7:37pm.

eagleupdateegg.jpgHappy Monday, eagle watchers! It seems our eagles had an exciting Saturday while the cameras were down due to the storm, because when the streams were restored yesterday, we had this season's first egg!

While we don't have an exact time, we know that it was sometime between 4pm Saturday and 10:50am Sunday.

nest-flight-300x300.jpgIt's almost egg watch season! During the next few weeks, we'll see the eagles make final repairs to the nest and begin their courtship performances. We can expect the female eagle to lay her clutch of eggs in late December or January.

eagle-19019.jpgNovember has begun, and that means it's eagle season! During this time, you can find eagles performing what’s  “courtship." A courtship with another eagle involves swooping flight, aerial stick exchanges and cartwheeling. Try and see if you can spot the Berry eagles performing their courtship behaviors!
