Thread subject: Norfolk Eagle news...
Name Date Message
BETH-OH 01/31/10 02:53 pm First egg today at 2:16 EST (!)
clyde 02/01/10 12:37 pm The eagle has been off the egg for at least ten minutes. She keeps looking at it but not sitting on it. He/she is alone in the nest.

It's in the 30s there.Is this egg a goner?

(Still standing...)
clyde 02/01/10 01:40 pm I just read this info on their nest blog which I hadn't seen before:

"Eagles (and many other birds) will often delay incubation until all of the eggs are laid. This helps ensure that the young hatch more closely together - keeping the youngest hatchlings from being too disadvantaged.

Even in relatively cool weather the eggs remain viable for some time without incubation"

Still, this egg was exposed for over an hour, and I was afraid they'd abandoned it. How can it stay warm enough in that cold air for so long?

But someone's back sitting on it now. I guess they know what they're doing.

Pam 02/03/10 04:49 pm Lovely video thanks Peggy. The nest sways in time to the music :-))

Do you leave several computers recording all these nests all the time and then pick out the highlights? Whatever, we are grateful for the coverage.
