I realized I could hear myself breathing when I saw E15’s lil beakie Breaking through. If there was ever a time we needed good news, it is now.
 
Poor Harriet... she had a sleepless night, the bugs were relentless.

They switched so fast that that is the only glimpse I got of the eggs.
E15 is the egg on the left... looks like it's a partial hatch but it's hard to tell.
 
Just got lucky, I could see it's little beak and grey fluff!

Dad picked away an egg bit earlier... don't think I've seen them do that before.

See that little face?!!!
Hi E15...
An official hatch won't be called until the eaglet is free from the shell.

Fun Fact: the egg tooth will fall off in about a weeks time after a full healthy hatch.
 
Harriet is standing up, letting the wind areate... I saw a little head, then she covered the babe with grasses, prolly from the sun. She's still standing.

She's resting off center of the bowl facing the sun and sea breeze yet very alert, watching every movement she sees...
