The eagles have been on and off of the nest. They have incubated the egg less than they have incubated it. It is warm and sunny today so all is most likely ok.

I will be out away from computer until early evening. Please post if you can. Smile

Wonderful to hear that they have an egg - and I'm thinking their first and second eggs usually hatch fairly close together, so it does make sense that they wouldn't start full-time incubating immediately.

3:21 pm
I was going to report that the egg was alone as of 3:15 - but then one adult arrived

And now both.

They seem to be looking around - neither has approached the nest cup.

The adult at the bottom of the screen left at 3:25 pm; the other remains perched at the upper right.

(sorry about the circle with arrow - I was afraid I'd miss the shot if I waited)

No change from the end of my last post - adult standing at the back, egg uncovered.

3:47 pm
Adult calling.

Then back to watching.

(I have several cams open, so it may be an issue on my end, but I seem to be getting 5-10 seconds of spinning circle, then a couple of seconds of live action.)


4:13 pm
I've been away from the computer, came back to find both on the nest, neither neat the egg.

The one who had been in the center of the nest flew off a minute or so later; the other remains at the upper right, doing a bit of preening.


Not knowing the pair, the one in the nest seemed sleeker, perhaps male. But the screen refreshed before I could get a scap of the pose that made me think of a male.

Adult who had been on the edge is approaching the egg.

Hard to tell with the stop-action, but she(?) appears to be digging around the egg.

Maybe nestling in?

I came back at 5:21 and found an adult standing beside the nest.

I stepped away for a couple of minutes and returned to see someone incubating.

Adult on the nest now is acting more like a male in terms of fidgeting - but looks to be a large adult - so no guesses.

Adult is up again, looking around and then either working on the nest or leftovers (though I didn't see any obvious food there).

Incubating adult immediately gets up

and flies off towards 4:00 a minute or two later.


Incoming adult moves over towards the egg and pulls some nesting material closer. Then looks around.
