9:54 am
Adult just arrived with a large white object, which I think is food. I'm wondering if this is Dad bringing a treat for Mom, as he put it down and is standing at the other end of the nest, waiting patiently.

After waiting patiently for at least 10 minutes, Dad is beginning to eat the food he brought, while looking in all directions after each bite, perhaps expecting Mom to come in at any moment.

After a few bites, he(?) moved to the nest bowl and is now nestled in. I may have been wrong about who it was, though it seemed odd that Mom would bring food to the nest and not eat. Though males also check out nest bowls - so who knows!

Second adult has arrived and is perched on the edge of the nest; first adult is up and working on the nest bowl. I'm going back to my theory that Dad was there first - though I won't be sure until the other one gets close enough for me to compare sizes and feather color.

No change.

Male(?) flew off; female is busy removing feathers and eating breakfast.
And now she's checking out the nest bowl, and doing a bit of rearranging of the little sticks on the side. I'm noticing that she still has a feather sticking out on the side.

Good Morning!

5:58 am
Eagle in the nest.
Not sure which one - spent most of the time poking around (or eating?) in upper right corner of nest.
Left at 6:00 am

Both there now. Mom still has the identifying feather sticking out - and she just left. Looks as if Dad is working on the leftovers at the bottom of the nest (nearest the cam, or 6:00 position). (Unless it's Dad with the feather - need to pay attention here)

Other one left - nest is empty.


6:29 am
One back with a stick - then the second arrives to discuss where to put it.

They are both there - but I'm out for a while. Out

Both are in the nest, and the one with the feather sticking out (Mom) is rearranging some sticks while the Dad watches.

Thursday, March 1, 2012

SAS..ME, Thomas and Sherri from the Maine Window-on-Wildlife forum reported that one of the adults (probably Mom) was in the nest at 1:30 in the morning, and still there around 5-5:30, when the second one appeared. There was a major winter storm approaching, so maybe that encouraged her to spend at least part of the night. I checked in the evening and the nest was empty - but didn't make a note of when I checked.

I've had the cam up much of the day and haven't seen them - and the snow in the nest looks as if they haven't been there recently. We're expecting a few more inches of snow tonight, I think - but it will be warming up after that, with rain on Saturday - so hopefully they'll be able to wait for a bit before laying any eggs.

Here's what the nest looks like now, 5 pm eastern time.

And as I was getting the link - Mom arrived on the nest, followed by Dad. I think they're wondering where their nest has gone - they know it was right there somewhere this morning!

I think Dad left, and this is Mom.

And now she's left as well, as of 5:23 pm.

For the record....

11:32 pm eastern time

No one home. I've been watching most of the evening, and haven't seen anyone stop by since my previous post.
