4:48pm - I am having a difficult time finding any eagles in the area outside of the nest, Lol. I am glad that you have figured out that we do have the real Mom and Dad Very Happy

Maybe Mom will be in a better mood now that she has had something to eat. Titter

I'm back again - and thank you so much for the timelines, Bev, and thank you all for the posts and observations.

Looking back at all I've seen at various nests, I have no worries about eggs being uncovered normally this early in the incubation, as long as it's not below freezing (and even then, I've seen them hatch) - there have been a number of nests that have two or even three chicks hatch within a day or so, and that would only happen if the first one or two didn't get incubated a lot. The wild card here is the rain - and I'm thinking that's unusual this time of year, so their instincts may not include dealing with that (if you know what I mean). If it weren't for the rain, mom getting her morning break, and both of them defending the nest would definitely take priority over incubating - because the egg would probably OK, and an intruder who wasn't immediately sent on his/her way would/could cause a lot more trouble over the next few months.

I'm hoping that's still the case - and hoping that they don't have such persistent rain that often over the next few weeks.

And I'm happy Dad spent some time incubating - I'm guessing that will trigger more of the instincts that will lead to the behavior we've all grown to know and love, as Dad demands his share of time caring for his eggs. love

Thank you Judy that is so reassuring, I'm still new to this game and was a little worried.
