Whew! How did I not know an egg was laid? Or maybe even more? Somehow missed this delightful information but am glad to put it in my pocket now. Thank you Doug.

To all y'all, this is a delight.

Good evening Hornby! wave

Hey EagleSpirit and Carolyn! :hello:

Doug decided to retire himself and the cams from broadcasting around last October. He's generously offered to keep us up to date though! Left thumb up So far, we know Ma has laid at least one egg. They did such a great job of nestorating, they've covered up the CU cam from Doug's view...the stinkers! AND the WA is on the fritz, so Doug is relying on his telescope to see any activity in the nest.

Speaking of eggs, Doug, can you tell if there's more than one egg in the nest? I would imagine if Ma was going to lay any more, she'd have done so around the 23rd or 24th.

I agree with you nightowl. There should be 2 eggs laid by now. Although I can't tell for sure, in my own mind, I assume there are two eggs. This has been the usual case with our eagles and also with other eagles. I will not know until around June 15 when young chicks first may poke their heads above the nest level.

I checked the beach at low tide and there is a fairly good coating of herring eggs stuck to the seaweed. Far better than last year. When you look from our deck at low tide, you can see a band of white (eggs) going from the water's edge up 75 feet for the whole length of the beach - with thousands of gulls feeding on them. This has been going on for several days now - a great feast!

Good early morning Hornby! wave

Hey Doug! :hello:

I figure there's 2 eggs in the nest also. Has Ma ever laid more than 2? (I don't think she has, but it never hurts to ask) In a little more than 3 weeks, hopefully you'll be able to tell if one has hatched. When one starts bringing food to the nest would be a good sign, huh? It doesn't seem possible it's that time of year again. Where does the time go? Puzzled

As far as the food supply, Mother Nature sure is fickle about that too. Some years are good and some, as last year, aren't so good. So far, it sounds like there's going to be plenty of food to go around this year. Left thumb up
