Good Evening, HatchWatchers!
As we left the nest last night Dad was occupying the position of honor on the egg. Sometime during the night he and Mom changed places and she was on the nest at dawn today. Also heard during the night were some Barred Owls with their “Who Cooks For You” call. They seemed far away and not a threat to the nest.
The day dawned clear and beautiful and Mom and Dad had a good morning until Dad’s OSD (Obsessive Stick Disorder) kicked in again. His attempts at stick placement were the source of much amusement to us all. Late afternoon Dad brought Mom an offering of Ruffed Grouse(we think) as an apology for the OSD and an incentive to get her to lay the 2nd egg. It didn’t help right away and my prediction of 5:22pm nest time came and went. Hopefully by the time I finish this post she will have had the 2nd egg!
Time for the days vids!
Some great panning and sunrise video!

As I sit here typing this blog we are waiting on Mom to lay another egg. Wish she would hurry it up but I guess we can’t rush eagle time!
I am going to post this now so I guess we will have to get our egg news tomorrow!
Update: Mom just laid the 2nd egg!!! Yippee!
1st look at Mom and her eggs!
I’ll post the video here later when it’s done uploading!
