Third Chick Arrives

We just predicted in our earlier post that the third chick was too late to arrive, and then it hatched this morning — six days after our oldest eaglet.

We’ll have to wait and see how the youngest does being so far behind its siblings. We did see the father helping with a couple feedings this morning, which could be a good sign. Not all fathers help with feedings, so if he contributes, it might make it easier on the youngest to get his share of a meal.

Here’s the data on our third chick:

3rd egg laid: 1/26
Hatched: 3/4
