Pip hip hooray!
Pip hip hooray! We spotted our first pip at Decorah North this morning around 10:00 am, which means that the first eaglet has pierced the egg shell. Mr. North and DNF are going to keep their eggs covered today, but look for little glimpses of its tiny beak chipping at its shell between shift changes and listen for soft vocalizations – egg talk! – between parents and hatching young.
Hatch usually happens between 24 and 48 hours after we see the first pip. Cross your talons for drier weather at Decorah North tomorrow and congratulations to DNF and Mr. North! 🦅🦅
