The past few weeks have been busy...not for me...for the adult Eagles that have, once again, returned to nest. They have been chatting up a storm, shrieking at the dogs and I to announce their presence, gathering pine sprigs to add to the nest, collecting mosses to work on the bowl (the part of the nest where the eggs are cradled) and soaring. Over the past few days, they are always together or in close proximity.
If mating is successful, the female (the larger of the pair) will lay her eggs within 5-10 days. Since a Bald Eagle's clutch can consist of several eggs, they are laid one at a time every three days.
The first egg will hatch in about 35 days and then the remaining eggs every 2-3 days.
(to be continued...)
just seeing, saying and sharing...
