Pam 01/31/05 10:12 am There are now three eggs.
Celeste 01/31/05 04:59 pm Yes, just discovered it myself. For an "early" nest 3 is amazing.........Of course, what goes on in the eagle nest is similar to osprey chicks. Hopefully they will not be born too far apart. I always feel sorry for that "last" egg!
Tiger 01/31/05 06:41 pm Let us not be too judgemental about what goes on in these nest. As we saw lat year these cameras are rewriting the books in a big way.

cathy 01/31/05 08:50 pm I try to imagine the DDT years when birds laid eggs, they didn't hatch, they migrated and then tried again each year until DDT was banned and sufficiently out of the environment for eggs to hatch. The birds outlived environmental problems that affected them and persisted! It is a privilege to be able to watch the regularity of these birds.
Marie 01/31/05 10:48 pm mmm Three eggs. How exciting. That is three days apart between each egg. Perhaps two will survive, but three, mmm. I doubt it. Only once have I viewed an eagle's nest with three surviving chicks. I do believe the eggs need to be laid closer together and for the chicks to hatch almost daily so there isn't too much size difference in the chicks. It all depends on availability of food too and how good the male is for providing meals- on- the- fly. We watch.....we wait!
