Jordan Lake: Good News for the New Year! First Nest has egg(s). Yes! The eggs were laid at some point after December 26.
1) Mom Kate flew over me, heading out to the lake after she and Dad Petruchio had switched places on the eggs – yep, both the female and male bald eagle help with the incubation.
2) Dad Petruchio landing just above the nest to make sure Momma Kate is ok (you can’t see her).
3) Mom Kate in the nest – her head is just above the brim and she is looking out the right side of the nest. Look for her yellow beak.
4) Both parents at the nest. Mom Kate is standing up in the nest and her head is to the right – she is rolling eggs. Dad Petruchio is above the nest, on the left of the main trunk, look for his white head. I apologize for the photos at the nest, but, the weather did not want to co-operate; fog everywhere.
