Thanks for your obs, Judy - it is reassuring. And things [as in the eagles' behaviour] may just even out in the next day or two.

New [sort of] set of responsibilities for them ..... [JMO]

Mom's well settled on her egg...

I'm back again - and thank you so much for the timelines, Bev, and thank you all for the posts and observations.

Looking back at all I've seen at various nests, I have no worries about eggs being uncovered normally this early in the incubation, as long as it's not below freezing (and even then, I've seen them hatch) - there have been a number of nests that have two or even three chicks hatch within a day or so, and that would only happen if the first one or two didn't get incubated a lot. The wild card here is the rain - and I'm thinking that's unusual this time of year, so their instincts may not include dealing with that (if you know what I mean). If it weren't for the rain, mom getting her morning break, and both of them defending the nest would definitely take priority over incubating - because the egg would probably OK, and an intruder who wasn't immediately sent on his/her way would/could cause a lot more trouble over the next few months.

I'm hoping that's still the case - and hoping that they don't have such persistent rain that often over the next few weeks.

And I'm happy Dad spent some time incubating - I'm guessing that will trigger more of the instincts that will lead to the behavior we've all grown to know and love, as Dad demands his share of time caring for his eggs. love



You are welcome Judy... and thank you for taking the time to look over some other nests.. I will rest much better tonight after reading your post ... I hope and pray that the intruder is long gone .. and for good weather at this nest ! Thank you again Big hugs

Thank you, Judy, for your observations and thoughts on today's happenings. I am sure you are right and Mom and Dad H are just getting back into the swing of things as they move into the parenting season, Lol.

Mom is chattering loudly and Dad must be nearby as he is answering .

Mom is calling, and has now gotten up. Not hearing anything else.

(I noticed the stream, Gail - thanks for the s'cap! Lots of rain today.)


5:29 pm
Mom moved to the edge of the nest, and flew away. North zoomer is looking for her.

I'm on South cam, keeping an eye on the nest, but have pulled back a bit in case someone comes to the near branches.
