2:58 pm Sunday morning with Mom and Dad Surrey Reserve! There has been much calling today and both seem to be close to the nest. Wondering if there is someone or something they feel threatened by!

Thank you all for the coverage this weekend! Charlie and I had a lovely time at his family farm, beginning the process of getting it ready in case any of the relatives will be able to come to Maine this summer.

Good afternoon, everyone!

From 11:29 am
Res arrived with more hay or straw - I'm wondering if they are doing some landscaping at the nearby housing project.
20200323_002.jpg

Sur took of soon after that, and Res took over incubation.


At 12:15 pm, Res did some calling. And then she flew off at 12:22 pm.
20200323_004.jpg

Sur arrived less than a minute later, did a quick check on the eggs and settled in. He did a lot of rearranging of the "fluff" on the nest, carefully tucking it in around him - so it was a couple of minutes before he slowed down enough that I could get a good s'cap.
20200323_005.jpg

It's now 12:37, and Sur is calmly looking around, and incubating the eggs.

I just have to post this because it's such a lovely clear picture - I wish the cam could always be like this.
20200323_006.jpg

I suspect this is Res, but really can't tell.

And I have to say goodnight - bye. :offtobed:

9:30 pm Definitely Res, JudyB! She's still on duty from the 4:44 pm COTG. Res took her own sweet time taking over egg duty from Sur! Nest was on its own for 8 minutes! I suspect one or the other was watching close by though!

:vid: Res a little slow in taking over nest duties from Sur!

9:50 pm Another long shift for Mom - couldn't find anymore nest exchanges since the one at 4:44.

9:48 pm All tucked for the night!

Good morning, everyone!

7:32 am - Switch from Res to Sur?

Res flew off just before the first picture
20200324_001.jpg

I think this is Sur - had a glimpse of his tail as he landed, though I haven't had a clear look at his eye yet.

Checking the dvr -

There was a very fast switch from Sur to Res at 8:52 am
20200324_004.jpg

She called and flew off at 12:47 pm
20200324_005.jpg

And Sur arrived a couple of minutes later.
20200324_006.jpg

I think it may have still been raining a bit when they did their fast switch (thanks for posting the weather, Bev!) - and the rain had stopped for the later one.


It's now 1:13 pm, and Sur is on the nest. His eye is looking very good today - which makes it a bit more tricky to confirm his identity.

Sur has been doing some calling for the last couple of minutes, and he just got up and flew off.
20200324_011.jpg

The eggs are looking good in their cozy little cup.
20200324_012.jpg

I'm going to log into the South cam and look around.

Checking the dvr....

Res was up and off at 4:23 pm; didn't get the flyout, but here are the eggs.
20200324_021.jpg

North cam is pixelating badly, so I'll check South to see if I can tell who came in.


4:26 pm
This looks like Sur.

4:46 pm
This definitely looks like Sur
20200324_023.jpg

And he started calling, and was up and off at 4:47 pm.

Someone is back at 4:48 pm - my guess is Res - I think I see her cowlick - but I am not sure yet.
20200324_024.jpg

I've rebooted North since it was badly pixelated - and this is definitely Res.
20200324_025.jpg

I'm not sure what's up with the very brief afternoon break - maybe other eagles in the area. And maybe he'll give her another break before the long overnight shift.

And it is getting to be night here - so I'll say goodnight. Please post if you see anything interesting, or just to say that all is going well.

6:17 pm I see you have already covered the very short break Res had JudyB! I was doing the same thing!

I will post these anyway since they are already done - different perspective! :)


:vid: Sur in to give Mom a break earlier than usual


:vid: And she's back already!


6:10 pm And now Sur is back again!
3-24-2020  6-10 pm.jpg


6:10 pm Both watching something very intently!
3-24-2020  6-10-58 pm.jpg


6:12 pm Whatever it was is gone now as Res gets ready to leave on another break

Good morning, everyone!

Thanks for the weather and for reporting the cam, Bev - I'm doing a reboot of North now.

I did take a look back, and didn't see any activity beyond the usual repositioning and turning the eggs. I also tried to look around a bit, but it's way too foggy to see anything.

6:43 am
Very noisy - geese flying by? Res doesn't seem concerned, though she did look around.
20200325_001.jpg

Added -

6:51 am
Cam just switched to color and I wanted to share this image of lovely Res on a misty morning.
20200325_002.jpg

7:00 am
Res was calling - maybe she thinks it's time for Sur to take over incubating for a while.

Res just took a brief break - she left at 7:16 am
20200325_004.jpg

And returned at 7:18 am
20200325_005.jpg

I tried to go in on North to take a closer look at the eggs, but she was back before I got the cam in the right place - and being on the direct link caused the North embedded cam to pixelate - so I'm going to reboot it again.

Res was off again at 7:24, and I'm pretty sure it's Sur that came in this time.
20200325_006.jpg

Because I was already on the North cam to do the reboot, I again tried to zoom in on the eggs - and they look great! Unfortunately I don't have a s'cap - Sur arrived before I could take one from the zoomer link, and the embedded cam is too pixelated to see anything. I did make a preset, so next time I get a change, I may be able to get into position faster.

We are still a bit over a week away from the time we'll start watching for the first chick to begin making its way out of the shell - so I'm mostly just getting ready. :love:

1:45 pm Checking the DVR back to JudyB's post I could only find one exchange - at 1:00 pm. Unless I missed a couple that is a long shift Sur put in!

11:05 am Sur up and looking around for Res!

Thanks, gemini!

It looks as if Res was on duty until about 4:28 pm.


Here she is at 4:26 pm showing off her lovely white tail.
20200325_009.jpg

Sur (on the left) arrives at 4:28 pm
20200325_010.jpg

And Res decides to get while the getting is good!
20200325_011.jpg

Sur moved over to incubate a moment later - they both have a really good idea of what their job is right now. :love:


It's now 5:47 pm, and I'm 99% it's still Sur on duty.

Good night, everyone! :offtobed:
