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!!
