Two baby eagles appeared on the eagle cam at the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge over the weekend. According to a story on WJZ-TV, officials believe one eagle hatched sometime late Friday or early Saturday and another late Saturday and early Sunday.

The nest contains a third egg as well.

The refuge’s live camera also shows one of the adult bald eagles feeding the babies. A video posted to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge’s Facebook page can be seen below. The refuge plans to issue updates and you can visit the refuge between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. to see the eagle for yourself.

 

We have 2 hatchlings in the bald eagle nest!! Due to camera outages, we are unsure when they hatched, but suspect one was sometime on Friday and the other Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Still waiting to see the third one, but the egg still appears to be in the nest.Video shows one of the bald eagle adults feeding two very young hatchlings, credit USFWS.Although we don't have the ability to put the eagle camera feed online, we welcome you to stop by our visitor center where the live footage streams all day. We will also continue to post periodic updates on social media.
