I now see a sweet chick pile and counted three little heads. There are shells scattered. Can't see if the 4th egg has hatched.

Me too Jazzerkins! I see two chicks huddled and two eggs. Where is Dayton?
Just checked. Dayton is sitting on the eggs/chicks. Not a great view. Sun is setting behind the nest from the West. I know the location of this site because I was born and raised in Dayton. This is downtown Dayton. Can't wait to see how many chicks there are in the A.M. with the sunrise from the East.

I was really surprised to see the chick and the eggs left alone.  I thought a parent would be velcroed to them at this stage.

An egg has hatched and Dayton is enjoying a snack of egg shell. Have yet to see the little ball of fluff. It's show time!

Ok! Update! Dayton just stepped out and I have my first view of the little one.

2016 NESTING SEASON

Dayton and Daniel have 4 eggs. First egg was laid March 10th. Dayton started closely sitting on the eggs by March 14 so hatching could have started as early April 11. No hatches yet, but any day now.

It has been days since I have seen the chicks. I guess all have fledged and the camera view really doesn't change.  :(

This was in the Dayton Daily News online site this morning. A slide presentation of this year's banding.

This article appeared in today's online issue of the Dayton Daily News. apparently, after banding the chicks yesterday, the program will be ending. Dayton and Daniel have nested there for many years and will probably continue to do so. I'm not sure if the cam will continue or not. I will be try to reach my contact for an answer.
Sadly, at the end of last season, they discontinued the live cam of the eagles due to lack of funding.

 ;D Dayton is sunning herself on the ledge. The chicks are in their own worlds. Two are in a faceplant position and the third is preening. Little diva! Oops, just looked again. All three are in faceplants position.

Confirmed, there are 3 chicks who are active. Just watched Dayton, sitting, and I do mean sitting on the chicks. You can see her talons. No longer can she lay on the chicks. LOL!

Have just looked in on Dayton and chicks. No sign of Daniel. What you see in Alison's photo is the same with Dayton sitting on the chicks. My guess, there is at least one nonviable egg, pushed aside. There were 4 eggs laid but from the photos, I saw two chicks and the discarded egg.  ??? Where did the fourth egg go?  ???

gemcitygemini, this is for you.

From the Dayton blog today, which also has a really nice pic of the two chicks.

April 28, 2015

Hatching has occurred! As of Monday afternoon one egg shell could be seen outside the scrape. Early this morning two or three eggs were seen broken in the nest box. Dayton sat tight on the nest this morning, possibly more than typical due to the temperature being in the 30s, but one chick was seen peeking out from under her. Around 8:45am she took a quick break out of the box and two chicks and one egg are visible in the nest.

Thank you, Alison. It's feeding time.
