2.45p Mom and Dad still on seeded nest, I am very worried they do not like that rubber mat, why was it put there , they have been trying for weeks to get it out Hay, can the owners allow you to go there DD?can Karen ask DH ? Could they be giving that platform nest another look see? no rubber mat there , but its the most we have seen them there since it was constructed 5 years ago.
Both are trilling, mom moves next to Dad
Lynne whats your take on all of this ?

Sofia, I imagine various possible outcomes, but am trying to be patient knowing Mom and Dad will do what they will do. Based on history Mom will soon lay her first egg of 2018. We'll just have to wait and see if we get to see this happen. I like the idea of providing nesting material nearby - just in case they want to use it. :luck:

I forget now why David decided to rebuild the WR nest last September. He has learned in the past that it is best to put something under the nest to prevent eggs or eaglets from falling through like what happened one year at our Delta OWL nest when the bottom of the nest fell out while Ma and Pa were in it. Fortunately there were no eggs or chicks in the nest yet.

I think that if Ma and Pa were going to bring in soft material for the bowl of the nest that they would have done so by now. They haven't even brought in many sticks have they? Sorry but I've been paying more attention to Delta 2 and Harrison Mills these last couple of days.

Actually David will be happy if the eagles use the platform nest this year and so will the property owner. That's why the platform nest was built, hoping to entice the eagles away from the house.

Thanks for your email, Dianne. I will make sure that David sees it.
That's fine and daddy Karen, I believe that was the reason too for not supporting the old nest, The problem is they are spending all their energy trying to defend two nests, Some of us spending countless hours here, and zooming cams, What we see is not making any of us happy.Moms feet were hurt so much in a fight they are still looking terrible, that is not something anyone wants to see.more than two pairs have fought them for the nest, if not more.South Cam is not working, North cam is not streaming, thankfully the cam on the Wide angle tree is doing its job.Anyway, time will tell.
