The two just switched places at 4:15 EDT and rolled the eggs a bit I think.

I saw the same thing. The female has been the prominent egg warmer the past few days. At least the rain has given them a break.

With eagles it is usually the mom who stays on the nest overnight with Dad close by in a tree. Does that hold true with our pair?

Wonderful shot of Mama with what appears as her "hot spot" feathers overshadowing the eggs?!!!

Hey Carol,

We've usually have noticed the female pulling the long hours of setting on the egg(s). The male will either be on the tower or in one of the trees close by the tower.

Really enjoying the great detail pictures - thank you. Is dad bringing in fish? fortifying the nest? Haven't noticed any of that.

Good Morning DB,
We haven't noticed the male bringing in any fish or nesting material since the first egg was laid.

I guess the female gave up on the male bringing food. at 730pm the eggs were exposed and she was off the nest, after a minute or so, she returned but with no fish. Maybe she ate off the site but it's a little far to fly to water from that location and be gone long with eggs exposed isn't it?

I haven't seen the male since Wednesday morning. I think the female is stretching her wings. Not sure where the male has been. Maybe we'll see him today.
