this is also my concern, they are away for too long to make this nest home :cry:

Hello everybody, :wave:

I believe it will be clear soon.

Gunnar said: According the datas from the trailcam study I can say that in our latitude here in Estonia first egg laying date median is 21. of March (8. March-5.April).

As long as we can see both eagles together on this nest, there probably are no eggs on some other nest.
One of them would be brooding and guarding the egg(s), I think.

Triin said: Female should be incubating and caring for the young most of the time....
Today we didn't see both, isn't it? Only the female. :puzzled: :D
(The last time they were together here was on April 1th.)

Cross my fingers.

I think it starts here later than usual, just like at the other nests too.

Straw!? That's great! :D
(Did she decide she could need a little bit of straw for laying her precious egg? We will see soon. :bow: )

Yes, the weather has been very cold. Maybe they postponed the egg-laying a little.

Thanks Liz for all pics!

Me too, Liz, me too. :laugh:
The female seems to prepare/soften the nest bowl...
That's hopeful news.

I never see her. :puzzled:

Good thing I can read here. I'd think Nest would be completely abandoned.

It looks nice the way she tweezes on him. :D
