Hi Lynne---Food brought to the nest for the female is part of the courting ritual but Dad eagles are always hopeful that there will be some nestovers for them LOL!! Wink

LOL, well she seems really happy with him and I think we are going to see an egg very soon, in the next day or two perhaps! He brought two things yesterday and hid the second thing (bird I think) under the grass, but she found it hehehe
I am enjoying watching these two!

Well the eagles came back to the nest late this evening, Mom found a nest over to snack on.

They were both on and off till dark, but i believe they are roosting in the nest tree, hoping for more egg like activity tomorrow
