July 19: Fleding has begun! One of the chicks has flown out of the nest, but remains close to its siblings and parents in a tree nearby. The two other chicks continue to flap their wings and hop around the nest getting ready for their turn to fly.
All of the chicks are expected to leave the nest soon, so this will be the last series of photos from this year's nest. Thank you for following along this beautiful journey with us.
June 29: The three eaglets are very active and appear to be getting ready to fledge. They have been busy flapping their wings and jumping around the nest. Eaglets typically fledge the nest 8-12 weeks after hatching. We'll keep an eye on them and try to capture the moment they take off.
June 12: All three eaglets are healthy. Today, our photographers captured the eaglets feasting on a ground squirrel.
May 13: The third egg has hatched! All three eaglets are doing well. Mom and Dad are busy feeding the eaglets' healthy appetities with fish and small hares. Check back for more photos throughout the summer.
May 4: Two eaglets have hatched! In these photos, taken May 4, the eaglets are two days old. Mom, Dad and ATCO Electric Yukon are keeping a close eye on the little ones and on the third egg to see if it hatches. Check back for frequent updates and new photos throughout the summer.
April 14: Three eggs are now confirmed in the nest! Mom and Dad are busy incubating the three eggs. More updates and photos to follow in the coming weeks.
March 30: The Yukon eagles have returned! They have chosen to settle in the nest they occupied last year along Millennium Trail, across the street from ATCO Electric Yukon's eagle cam. At the time these photos were taken (March 30, 2015) one egg was confirmed to be in the nest. Watch for updates and more photos throughout the season.
