I don't have many pictures from today. The eagles switched egg duty. I did not see good come to the nest but I could have missed it. Tonight some intruder is upsetting Mom. She was off the nest so fast. She was calling so loud.
Dad was right there and both were calling. Dad went up to the perch over 7 o'clock. At 8:30pm it is calmer but Dad is still up above the nest.

7:14am Dad is incubating the eggs.

7:04pm Mom is up and off the nest in a shot. Wow. She is calling so loud. She is back on the nest and Dad comes in. He goes up to the perch.
7:16pm Mom is back on the nest incubating after rolling the eggs. Dad is up on the perch.
More vocals wish I could identify the other bird squawk. Mom stays on the nest bowl.
7:34pm Both trilling again but mom stays over the eggs.
8:02pm Mom is up and rolls the eggs again.
8:52pm All is quiet and mom is resting head down.

There is a strong wind blowing today. The cam is pixeling so it is hard to tell what is going on on the nest.

It will do this and then we will get a good picture again. It has been reported
