First hatch at Fort St. Vrain!

March 25, 2019: Hatch at Fort Saint Vrain

Congratulations to the Xcel Energy Fort St. Vrain eagles! The first hatch of 2019 occurred last night at 9:43 MT – 40 days, 1 hour, and 3 minutes after the first egg was laid!

Tick-tock hatch clock! When can we expect hatch?

03/17/19: Eggs at N2B

Here are our best guesstimates on hatch dates at our nests in Decorah and at Xcel Energy Fort St. Vrain. Please remember that all of these could happen a little earlier or a little later than forecast, so keep an eye on our nests, our website, Explore’s website, or wherever you watch the eagles!

Egg #2 at the North Nest!

4.15.18: Two eggs at the North Nest

Mrs. North delivered another egg during the snowstorm this afternoon! She flew into the nest at 12:58, changed places with Mr. North, and laid the egg shortly afterwards with not much egg labor noticed. The final push came at 1:16 CDT, and our first sight of the egg came at 1:17CDT. Given the weather, we got just a glimpse of it before she covered it back up. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. North! I sure wish we could get Bob’s

D30 hatches!

2018: D30, the second hatch in Decorah

You could have knocked us over with a feather when a fully dry D30 briefly popped its head up during evening feeding time! Mom and Dad kept the lid sealed pretty tightly today, so we are not sure when D30 hatched. We’ll be looking through footage to see if we can determine a hatch time, but in the meantime – welcome to the world, D30!
