White-tailed eagle chick hatches in livestream nest

Take note – story published 3 years ago

On Wednesday, April 21, the first chick hatched in the white-tailed eagles' nest in Durbe, whose livestream is watched by thousands, Dabasdati.lv reported.

This turn is surprising given the dramatic events that took place in the eagles' nest this spring.

The male Raimis disappeared at the end of March and never returned to his family's headquarters. Female Milda abandoned the nest from time to time to look for food, the longest period was even five hours, and in very cold weather.

That was a concern that the three eggs may have been frozen, ornithologist Jānis Ķuze told LSM. 

At the beginning of April, Milda got a new partner, male Čips, who also engaged in sitting on the eggs.

The forum of the livestream in English is available on this site.
