2013 White-bellied Sea-Eagle Milestones

Please note that this information was first developed in 2011 (1 chick fledged) & was based on the available literature and the observations of this nest in 2010. This information was built on further in 2012 (2 chicks fledged).
As the seaglet(s) develop, the milestones met are ticked off as well as other 'actual' observations are recorded underneath the list for each week.

The seaglets may develop more quickly or slowly; many factors can influence developmental progress.

We are basing this year's observations on a hatch date of xx/8 for SE11 & xx/8 for SE12 (in each case the first observed date).

The idea of using milestones as a measurement are so that we can compare growth to previous seasons and know that the seaglets development is on track.

This link below summarizes the kind of information we will post in this thread as the season progresses.

These milestones are prepared & maintained by Melanie Pittard with contributions from Geoff Hutchinson, Judy Harrington, moderators and other nest observers.
