It is great to see all three eaglets getting some food this morning. It is clear the hatch happened last night sometime. For my purposes I will consider the hatch at 7pm nest time last night. Here is a shot from a feeding this morning.
The third egg in the Arconic EagleCam nest is in the process of hatching. It was clear to see a large opening in the egg and movement during a feeding of the other two eaglets just before 6pm local time. I would expect the youngest one to hatch tonight or in the morning. Pictures below show the opening in the egg.
Great to see the second of three eggs hatch today at the Arconic EagleCam Nest! I am calling it official at about 11am nest time today, about 36 hours after the first hatch. Below are a few images from a feeding this afternoon. I am hoping to see the final egg hatch late Sunday or sometime on Monday.
Looks like our first egg hatched late this afternoon. So far I have not been able to catch a good shot myself but I did see the little one for a second. Mediacom issues are slowing our feed again today. Hopefully they can get this figured out soon.
It looks like we are getting close to a hatch. I was expecting the first one around the 22nd or 23rd, but I know some of you have spotted what appears to be a pip (small hole) in one egg. If that is the case I would expect a hatch later today or tomorrow. In the meantime, before we get completely focused on the hatching, I wanted to give you an update on Star & Sky. As of yesterday afternoon Star is hanging out along the Missouri River west of St. Louis. She has been in that general area for about two weeks now. Sky is still in the area between St. Louis and Springfield, Illinois. Below are tracking maps for each and one map that shows both of them at the same time.
We’ve officially made the call: The eagles laid three eggs this year!

Mediacom says they worked through the weekend and are still working to resolve our upload issues. Now it appears Typepad is acting up too. That would not be a Mediacom issue. Hopefully Typepad get its issues resolved soon.
i have spoken with Mediacom about a dozen times this week. They indicate they are working on the issue slowing and interrupting our feed. They indicate it is a wider problem and they will have people on it all weekend.
In the meantime here are maps showing star and sky locations and one that shows both of them to show you where they are in relation to each other.
