More nestorations and mating tonite 1/6/11 4:30-5:15 pm
I'm not an expert on eagle mating, but tonite Liberty looked like she was ready to accept Pat. I'll post my video and you can judge for yourself...

Great videos, as always, Eaglewoman. Much better than watching the cam. Maybe T.B. should just pay you to stand there all day--or install the cam right where you stand. Guess when the leaves start to come out it won't be such a clear shot, though. But, for now, the view of the nest is awesome and you are doing a wonderful job of capturing our beloved eagle pair.

Do you remember the gestation period? Know I could find it if I looked back, just thought someone here would know.

Welcome back mykitters!!!
What a nice surprise to hear from you today!!!Grin I'm so glad you have been enjoying my videos & pics! I still can't believe how close that new trail is and how that doesn't bother them at all having all those folks walking & riding & skateboarding by them!:dunno:

I knew you hadn't fallen off the face of the earth, once an eagle lover, always an eagle lover, right?Sitting eagleSitting eagle

Here is a pic I took of Pat last night before Liberty arrived at the nest. He didn't show up tonite until 5:10 or so, and she flew in around 5:15 so there wasn't much light left. The nice thing about that new trail is that it has lights all along the pathway so I can stay there and videotape until almost 5:30 pm!!! I could never find my way out of that other little trail I used to shoot at if I stayed there that late!!!Titter

And Eagle Eye, to answer your question from earlier about the gestation period, I copied this from the American Bald Eagle Information site...


Five to ten days after a successful copulation, the female lays a speckled off-white or buff colored egg about the size of a goose's. The second egg is laid a few days later, followed by a possible third.

Bald eagle nesting seasons

The 35 days of incubation duties are shared by both male and female, but it is the female who spends most of her time on the nest.


So, I guess P & L are just practicing for the real thing!Titter

WhistlingUnless they are going to be early this yeargiggle I haven't been watching the nest cam too much lately....is it close to being ready? Anybody know?
Also, I'm betting on 3 again this year. We'll see soon enough. Anyone interested in watching Lily the black bear and her cub from last year? Bear.org has their den cam up and running..some glitches I guess, but, it is active. Last year little Hope was born on Jan. 22. Getting close to time again.
