7:13 am - this may actually be Mom that comes back. I'm trying to figure out how to ID them, and thought Dad had darker eyes, so this may be Mom.

An adult came back about 20 seconds later. Again, I think this may be mom. She is still there as of 9:52 am. It just seemed a little odd that they kept leaving and coming back within a short amount of time.

SUNDAY, MAY 13, 2018

Hi Bev, and all Kenai Eagle Watchers! Bev, no need for the ID info at this point unless someone else needs it. You pointed out Mom's darker tail and you are correct on that. With the cam view this is a great ID marker so that will work for me. We are getting close to pip watch time so I'll try to check in a little more often. Today I noticed that Dad Kenai has a new mark on his head. Not sure if it's just dirt but will keep an eye on that.

11:18 am - here is Dad flying in to relieve Mom. I just now noticed he has a white patch on his left wing, or maybe some missing feathers.

And here is the mark on Dad's head

And a side by side of Dad on the left, and Mom on the right showing the different in their tail color.
2018-05-13 18_35_46-Greenshot.jpg
These s'caps were all from when Dad came in to relieve Mom at 11:18 am.

3:49 pm - just one more s'cap for today. This one is of Mom Kenai leaving the nest (Dad is again taking over for her). Since we had a s'cap of Dad's wing span from earlier I thought I should share Mom's as well. This is just beautiful!

THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018


Good Afternoon Kenai Eagles, Bev, and all other Kenai Eagle Watchers! I am finding it another odd day today. I know it is the start of PIP watch but the adults are acting odd.
11:10 am - I think it's Mom that is on duty. She gets up off the eggs as if something is not quite right. She sits like that for a couple minutes and then slides down, not quite all the way, over the eggs.
2018-05-17 17_37_27-Greenshot.jpg
2018-05-17 17_39_49-Greenshot.jpg
11:22 am - Mom goes into full protection mode after hearing a noise. I heard it too. It wasn't really loud but sounded like a branch breaking or something like that. I thought I could hear voices too but it was very faint, maybe in the distance.

Continuation of the adults acting odd today:

11:28 am - Mom stayed in the protection mode until this time, when she slowing got up and then once up, quickly flew off. I tried to listen at full volume but didn't hear anything else out of the ordinary. It's been a bit windy so hearing a lot of that.

Continued:
11:30 am - I heard one adult calling out and another answering in the distance and then I see their feet coming down the left side of the tree. They came down enough so they could perch in the tree and kept calling out. Again I heard a response from another eagle off the nest. I think this was Mom on the nest tree.

1:35 pm - No one had returned to the nest since Mom left at 12:21 pm. No one has been on the eggs since 11:56 am.

1:56 pm - I think this is Mom that comes back to the nest.
2018-05-17 17_57_22-Greenshot.jpg
Mom lays down but is listening and looking up and around
2018-05-17 18_47_04-Greenshot.jpg
2:47 pm - Mom has been in the same position now for almost an hour. It appears to be raining or sleeting now.
2018-05-17 18_47_43-Greenshot.jpg
Maybe it was just a storm coming in that was alarming the adults. I only heard the one noise when Mom got into the protective pose. Other than that it's just been wind, and possibly some thunder.

FRIDAY, MAY 18, 2018

Hi Kenai Eagles, Bev, and all Kenai Eagle Watchers! I am not sure if there is a PIP or not but I'm seeing an odd spot on one of the eggs.

1:13 pm - both eggs are shown in this s'cap and there's a piece of straw across both eggs but under that on the right egg it looks like a mark.
2018-05-18 17_22_16-Greenshot.jpg
1:22 pm - the male got up again and here's the egg with that mark on it again.
2018-05-18 17_23_23-Greenshot.jpg
1:35 pm - as I was getting ready to post I noticed that the male was up again showing us the eggs and now it looks like both eggs have marks on them. I've also seen that Dad has some dirty feed so maybe that is what caused these marks.
2018-05-18 17_37_39-Greenshot.jpg
I'm going to keep an eye on both eggs to see if anything changes.

Hi Bev and all other Kenai Eagle Watchers!

9:00 am this morning it looks like Dad Kenai was taking a break and gave us a full view of the eggs. I don't see any markings on either egg at this time.

Hi Sue ......Just saw your post !

It is my understanding that eagle eggs can hatch anytime from Day 35 to Day 40 and some times and this is the exception on Day 41..

MONDAY, MAY 21, 2018

Good Morning Kenai Eagle Watchers! This is day 39 for egg #1, and 36 for egg #2. I just happened to pull up the cam when Mom Kenai was taking a break.

5:00 am - I'm not sure if this is just a piece of grass on this one egg but something to keep an eye on. Mom is now back to incubating the eggs.
