I didn't realize they continued to mate after eggs are laid. Is it possible that the intruders are causing reproductive ....er... dysfunction? I know stress has physiological effects on us.



Eagles can bond all year around. Ma has stronger legs to help her "crouch" over the egg, I'm sure it's quite safe.

Egg being unattended is quite normal. Fulltime brooding will come after second (or third) egg.

from Stanford doc on hatching asynchrony: (which I can't seem to post link to because it keeps saying spam?)

Whether eggs in a single clutch will hatch simultaneously or sequentially over an extended period of time is determined by the onset of incubation. In many birds, including most precocial species, incubation does not begin until the last egg has been laid, resulting in all of the eggs hatching within a few hours of each other. In contrast, many other birds begin incubation prior to laying the last egg of the clutch. This results in asynchronous hatchings separated by anywhere from a few hours to several days, depending on how soon incubation commences following the start of egg laying.


Animals come into our lives, leave pawprints on our hearts and we are forever changed...

Mom just rolled the egg, fluffed up the nest material and dug a little deeper into the nest bowl. Everythings looks normal to me.

Hi jodi, All you did was forget to use the File tag found in the Formatting area
just above the body of your text. Use that and put a 1 where it is flashing between the
two "File" words.
