Dad is back with a stick.

And has nestled in on the egg, and continues to rearrange the little sticks and clumps of moss around the nest bole.

Up to move a stick out from under, and turn the egg. Then back down.

Mom is still on her perch by the river.


11:45 am
Dad has a bit of nest material on his shoulder. I'm pretty sure he got it digging around in the nest, but my warped sense of humor is wondering if he used a "flying tackle" to break off the new branch he brought to the nest.

And the bit of nest material has now fallen off.

Whoever was on the perch by the river just left, and someone just arrived on the nest (I think the same someone, but can't be sure - only basing that on timing).

She(?) is digging around the egg, and preparing to settle in. Tail looks like Mom, I think.

There was no one on the nest and only one eagle by the river since I came back to my desk at 12:30 pm.


12:26 pm
Adult on the nest is moving fluff around - maybe Dad?


12:29 pm
I'm now thinking Dad - but not easy to tell if I can't see the band or the little stripe in the tail. Bev?
