Harrison Bay Eagles Second Hatch!, Bald Eagles HK And Sterling Updates, White-bellied Sea Eagles Female Resident Missing, Loch of the Lowes Osprey Tracking Update, Dyfi Osprey Project Update and Fundraising

The second egg hatched today at the Harrison Bay Eagle nest, 21 hours after the first hatch! This is our first look at the newest hatchling. HB9, who hatched yesterday, is on the left. HB10 is on the right.

HB9 is already showing curiosity about the world around him/her. HB10 is to the right, down in the soft grass.

They both perked up for food, but I don't know if any of the bites hit their target.

This is only two hours after HB10 (on the right) hatched! What a strong baby!

There are some updates on Bald Eagles HK and Sterling at their territory at the Honey Bee Golf Course:
2/28 HK & Sterling at the cell tower
2/29 HK & Sterling at the nest
3/2 HK & Sterling at the nest and surrounding area
3/3 HK & Sterling at the nest again!
I wonder if they are around the nest so much because Sterling is feeling eggy...

The White-bellied Sea Eagle resident female hasn't been seen for two weeks, which is unusual. They are asking people to report any sightings.

There is a Loch of the Lowes Osprey tracking update, with recent pictures of FR3.

The Dyfi Osprey Project has an update on their preparations for the next nesting season and they are raising funds to help pay for the equipment and streaming. Please consider a donation if you enjoy the Dyfi Osprey!
