I cannot tell.

In my 10:12 capture --- with Eha in the nest it does not look like there is an egg. When she left just after that I did not think there was an egg. In your slightly later picture there is something light and Eha is hiding anything that might be there in Vengor's picture.

I was slow to see the WTE chicks so... I am not to be relied upon.

No, my picture I took early this morning, so, before yours. Ah well, we'll just wait and see.

I think Eha should be at home more if it was an egg there.

Maybe there is 1 egg. Look at where the arrow is pointing. The eagle who just left again was very interested in that particular spot.

Oliv, that is not necessary. When the egg laying is completed they stay at the nest at all times. Untill then they can be gone for hours.

Visitor, that's cheating ☺ greater/smaller and less/more. My knowledge of English doesn't suffice to explain what I thought to be a little joke. An eagle with more spots.....

Some birds

Least Sandpipers, Lesser Goldfinch
Great Horned Owls, Greater Spotted Eagle, No Greatest anythings (as far as I know)

There is apparently no logic to the choice of greater or great.
