Loss of an eaglet at Xcel Energy’s Fort St. Vrain Site

We are sorry to announce that FSV43 – the newest eaglet at Xcel Energy’s Fort St. Vrain site – died sometime during brooding yesterday. Both parents brooded faithfully and the eaglet appeared to be healthy and eating well earlier in the day. The second egg appears to be pipping and may hatch tonight or early tomorrow morning.

I really enjoyed this site and feel bad for Ma and Pa Jr., who both worked so hard to care for their eggs during March’s record snow storm. I’m glad that the last egg is hatching, which will give them an eaglet to care for. You can watch the FSV eagles here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVccwL-nNHf3ij4LPvgjrpA.
