After checking the other poles, the eagle is still on the pole next the tower.

Odd thing just happened -
Ma came to the nest and was digging around...

And she laid down to test the bowl...

After a few seconds she jumped forward as if she'd been bitten or something...

3:07pm.............Ma was contracting as early as 2:52pm............so nice to see Pa there with her. But I think she laid that egg at about 2:57pm. If no one objects we can keep 2:57pm as the official time.........THOUGHTS?

Ma having contractions.............rolling her body back and forth.

3:14pm......Sandy, just realized you have the cams! Thank you for being here! Don't know why I couldn't bring up the cams at all.

Ma got up to show us her prize and to give it a little roll.

I am so happy for you Sandy, that you got to see Ma lay her first egg and could get in on the cams for a closer look!

I will notify Karen and Judy that we have our first egg! Time......2:57pm.

Oh Jean, I am one tired zoomer as I was over the top excited and so concerned I would send the cams to neverland. Smiles

3:21pm.....Thanks Phil..........I did take another peek at the rollback and do think 2:57pm right on the dot is right! Time for me to calm down now and let Karen know so she can tell David.

Woo Hoo!! Congratulations Ma and Pa Delta 2 on your first egg of the season and the first of our local eagle web cams. Knew it would be soon as they were bringing in lots of soft nesting material for the cup of the bowl.
Hi Karen...........I guess you know now, so won't need to send you an email!! Glad you were here to see too! I will let JudyB know.............Time 2:57pm.
