Golden Eagle Webcam Nest 2020

Post by Jo UK » March 12th, 2020, 10:57 am

For this year, 2020, we have a new nest and two new Golden Eagles to enjoy.

The nest is in Soomaa, as is last year's nest. It has been in use since 2011 and it is known that three young golden eagles have "caught the wind"

As there are already many topical posts about this nest, please read them here on the old 2019 topic. From page 12 and continues to page 18

It is common for the golden eagle to lay two eggs, but only one chick will fledge. Incubation time is around 41 days.
Liz posted a count-up timer here -

Female Helju has what maybe the remains of a ring on her left leg but we are not able to get a good view of it - feathers on leg!

March 11. First egg laid.
March 15. Second egg laid.
