7:17 they must have read the post because as soon as I posted that no one was on the egg, the eagle came down from the perch and began incubating. Smile

I do feel sorry for that poor little egg - seems as if the incubating adult is forever dashing off here and there. I have been watching for an hour or so, and they have actually spent quite a bit of time incubating, though it's the time the egg is alone that makes an impression on me. I suspect that they are incubating through the night - but haven't been able to see who is where at dusk lately. I don't think I have errands tonight, so will try to make it home in time to check that out.

9:57 am

Incubating adult up and moved to the edge of the box. Other adult appeared from the wings, and moved to the edge of the box. The first adult went off. I thought the second adult was going to take over - but now the first adult is also back on the edge of the box, and I've lost track of who is who.

I just have to repeat to myself - they've successfully raised chicks for years, they've successfully raised chicks for years, they've.... Cool

They appear to be having a discussion, though I suspect they're just perching companionably on the edge of the nest.

Hi Judy, for the past half hour that I've been back watching, the incubating eagle hasn't left. I think that's a record. lol

11:38 incubating!

I've noticed that the parents are off the egg alot too, but like JudyB said, they've been successful in the years past, so they know what they're doing...waiting for egg #2 now!
