I find this all very unusual for Mom and Dad to be perched out front tog.. and their egg alone on nest... I know they can see their nest from there and the weather is good BUT still ??? What do you think Judy ?

Bev, I don't know about the time they're spending by the river. I think it's unusual for them - my impression was that they rarely left the nest untended once the first egg had been laid - which is why their two eggs that are usually laid 4 days apart usually hatch 4 days apart. But I think it's not unusual in general - Delta 2 often has its two eggs hatch either the same day or a day apart, and I remember one year that we wondered if they had forgotten they had laid an egg (I think it may not even have been covered at night - but if I'm remembering correctly it hatched; and I know they have left their first egg untended for long stretches even if I'm wrong about that particular egg).

If this means they may have chicks that hatch a bit closer together, that may be a good thing in the long run.


9:55 am
Someone just returned to the nest. I'm guessing Dad because he's moving some straw as he incubates.

Other adult remains perched by the river.

Another look at the adult on the nest.

Other adult is still on the perch by the river at 10:04 am - I'm thinking that's Mom on the perch, because Dad doesn't spend a lot of time there.


10:15 am
No change - one incubating, other perched by the river.

Thank Judy for responding to my question ... this all makes sense and it is reassuring ... just strange for the H's ..sigh sign In that case maybe we will see a second egg on this nest sometime tomorrow :fingers crossed

On a lighter note.. maybe the H's and the Delta 2 eagles met on their migration and the Delta 2 eagles gave them a How-- To'--Do list ! Titter
