Eagles On Eggs 2016

I think I may have witnessed our eagle laying an egg!!

The behavior was something I hadn’t seen before.  When I arrived, the female was sitting on the back edge of the nest facing me.


As I watched, she turned.  Her body straightened. Then she cried out sharply, once, twice.


She did this a couple of times.  I was too far away to see what might be happening, even with my camera. But I didn’t spy any predators, or the mate.


Eventually, she turned back around to face me.


She began picking at the nest, before slowly making her way into it  . . .



and sitting in the position I know so well.  On the eggs!

I went back an hour later and she was still sitting low on the nest.  The eggs are here!!
