Hanover bald eagles have first hatchling of 2019

York

The bald eagle nest near Codorus State Park has a new addition. The first hatchling appeared Thursday morning.

Liberty and her mate Freedom had two eggs this year. The first was laid Feb. 26 and the second appeared March 1.

If all goes well, faithful followers can expect the eaglets to develop most of their feathers by three to four weeks. The eaglets should begin walking in the nest at six to seven weeks, and they’ll begin to fly in about three months.

Young eagles separate from their parents in autumn.
