I tuned in earlier and saw a switch; Dad to Mom ... a few views of the egg; Mom was upset at 1226 pm something flying too close to the nest i think; also included the scheduled tour that occurs at 1 pm now ... here is the video i put together.

mom settling in for the night

656pm Belle was sleeping quietly and suddenly jumped awake so quickly, was staring at the egg so long I was worried about it, hope all is ok, I think she heard something and it startled her awake, hope no intruders around

this is when Belle got back on the egg after being startled awake, think she heard something, another bird maybe, and it was upsetting her so close to the nest

Doreen ... thanks for your reports ... nice we are both here today Clapping I have been in and out too. I wonder if there is another eagle in their territory. On occasion i thought we had a different adult in the nest ... but i could be wrong. Today i thought i heard a mating off the nest while Belle was flying into the nest ... could be the calls were lagging to real time that happens sometimes too.

720 pm
Belle is incubating.
As far as i can tell we still only have one egg.
