2023 RRP Highlights: HD feeds eaglet DH2 for the first time!

We’re looking back on 2023’s favorite things! Tonight’s memory lane moment was selected by chat mod Glogdog! She wrote: “HD’s first feeding of DH2 was momentous! For all of us to get to watch a new Dad do this for the first time was really cool!”

We suspected that HD and HM were first time nesters. While they had the instincts to care for their young, they didn’t know what needed to be done. Feeding was a process of trial and error, although both eagles learned quickly. DH2’s first feeding was a huge relief to all of us, and HD’s first feeding was wonderful. Our fingers uncrossed for the first time in days as we took in the joy of the moment!
