4/3/17 – Eaglet season in Pittsburgh

4/3/17 – Eaglet season is upon us in Pittsburgh. At the Harmar nest we have seen behavior that looks like the adults ‘listening’ in the nest bowl. This may be an indication that hatching is imminent. Keep your eyes on the camera on the nest for signs of feeding to let us know that a hatch has occurred.

Also, it seems the Hays female surprised us with more eggs than we knew about. After the nest tree fell, the pair rapidly re-built a new nest. Nest building is a bonding ritual that can boost the hormonal surge, and apparently, combined with the loss of the previous eggs, was enough to keep the female ovulating. With all the great photographers in the area, I suspect there will be solid evidence of this coming soon.
