Good morning Donna, I was just surfing nests when you posted this. May there will be an egg tomorrow.

These eagles have been around the nest all morning. They have moved nesting material, brought in a few sticks and been perched on the perches.

First egg at Standley Lake 3:53pm Congrats to Mom and Dad Standley Lake and all who are watching the nest Yeah!!!

3:15pm Mom is in the nest. She is standing quietly.
3:51pm She has been very antsy.
3:52pm I can see that she is hunched up and in labor. She is shifting from side to side. The view is not great but the movement is what we have seen so many times.

Wow, I saw it happen but didn't know what was going on. I was on the phone from 1530 to 1620 so I opened the page just watch. I saw her moving about but since I have never seen the laying process I didn't know. I guess we can expect an eaglet in 2 or 3 days after 3/31. If there is a second egg how long is the window for her laying a second egg?

Hi Janet

Usually the second egg will arrive about 72hrs after the first egg. It takes that long for the egg to form and be laid. We should see the second egg around 4pm on the 27th. In can take less time or a little more time but will come around 4pm
Glad you saw her lay the egg. It never gets old and is just such a miracle of nature.

I will definitely be peeping in on Monday to see if there is another egg. I thought she was just putzing about. NOW I know the behavior to look for. OMG these birds are wonderful and beautiful! Thank you for educating us, you are wonderful. My original animal of wonder was wolves back in 1981 after high school. I have added quite a few more since then. Eagles being one of them.

This video is from Elfruler Elf. It show mom Standley Lake in labor, laying the egg and rolling the egg. https://youtu.be/5jPpA6TpTWE Thank you Elf.

Dad arrived a little while after the egg was laid.
