Hi - just back and reading through the posts. Wow - confusing behaviour. Puzzled And the mating on the branch while the egg is uncovered in the nest is even more confusing [to me, anyway!]

Definitely Mom, but she's not really snuggling down on that egg, is she?

Thanks for your posts and obs Bev, Judy and Gail, and nice to see you photofun!

ADD: No-one is signed in to the SPTZ so I just signed on [in case you want to zoom around looking for Dad, Gail] Smile

Hi Yolande. Good to see you. You are right it is confusing behavior and I am sure I heard another eagle talking back and forth with Mom while she was on the branch for so long with "Dad". And, she is not really into this egg, is she? Not any real protective behavior. Also, as you said, why the mating when the egg is sitting right there uncovered??? She is not happy, for sure. I wonder where Dad went and if he is unable to find prey? A mystery for sure....do you think this is the real Dad?

3:48pm - Mom gets off the egg but does not roll it - she just sits next to it.

Hi Gail - I honestly have no clue as I arrived after he left? But, I see you have a scap of one of the eagles on the branch showing a band - that's confusing to me, cause I thought that's where Dad was. OOPS! Just checked and I think that was taken just after the mating - so was Mom. Smile Hope he comes back and we can tell for sure ...

And here is Mom - not on the egg!

OK - I will zoom the NPTZ and look for Dad.

Nice egg shot, Yolande!

3:51pm - Mom leaves the egg and goes to branch and then flies off.
