I had the cam up between 4:55 and 5:25 pm, Bev, while you were away - and I did wonder, but she never let me see the nest bowl. I would not be the least bit surprised to learn that she laid an egg sometime between 4 and 5. I know they can take videos from the cam, but am not remembering if they normally record or if Lisa (or someone) has to do something special to get a video - with a bit of luck they will have a recording and she'll be able to post a glimpse of the egg. But it's also possible that she's still getting ready, and it won't appear until sometime tomorrow or even later.

Thanks for checking back, Bev - I did notice that they occasionally lay their eggs this early, but didn't think they were this close, so went with the fact that the first egg was around the 20th about 2/3 of the time.

Good morning, everyone! I hadn't thought to check for a facebook page - thanks, Mary!

Bev, Lisa is the webmaster for the Friends of Blackwater site, and the one who posts the updates on the side of the cam, and also writes regular blog posts as the year progresses. I was hoping to meet her when I visited Blackwater a year or two ago - but she was actually visiting Cape Cod that week! She knows a lot - and I like the way she explains things.

I should also mention for those new to watching this cam that it's turned off for several hours in the middle of the night to reduce bandwidth expenses - I think from 11 pm to 3 am last year, and probably something similar this year.

And she still hasn't given us a peek, and I do need to get ready to head for work - will check in once I get to the office.

Oh - for those who are as obsessed with dates as I am - in addition to the fairly detailed summaries I have for each year on my website, I also have a summary page - http://www.judyb-eagles.com/eagles/eagl ... ummary.htm - which is how I could see quickly that the first egg was between January 20 and 26 from 2007 through 2010, then January 11-13 for two years, then back to January 20 last year. There's a link for "Eaglet Summaries" on the home page of my site http://www.judyb-eagles.com/, featuring a picture of little "Skye" from the Sidney nest in 2007 - one of the first nests with a close-up cam (at least in my experience).
