I checked in on mom again at 8:36pm and then went off to get a few things done thinking it would not be tonight.

HOWEVER, about 9:00pm Mom laid the first egg.

6:16am Mom stays tucked until dad arrives. She is up, moves near right side of nest, and flies off.

6:18am Dad stands and then moves to the egg. It takes him a few turns and a little time to move bedding and then he is settled.

wave lovethebabies. This is good news and really right on time.

7:12am to 7:19am Dad is incubating but is really having trouble getting comfy. He has rolled the egg twice and turned at least 20 times as he tries to get settled.

7:19am to 7:50am Dad incubates the egg. He is pretty restless. Mom arrives on the top right of the nest.

7:52am She settles over the egg for a couple of minutes then she is up digging and watching.

7:57am The eagles are calling to each other. Both are on the nest. The egg is unattended. Dad is off and back with a stick while mom eats up near top of the nest on the right.
