Glad I got to check on this eaglet this year ....

1 May 2017: The staff at the refuge thinks the eagle has left the nest, although it is likely still returning once in a while. Local flooding has prevented reaching the area of the nest to work on the video equipment.

Patti, did someone see her laying the egg?  Or is there a Facebook group or chat or blog that I haven't found yet?  The first report of it I saw was mid-morning on the 31st - with a note that it might have been laid any time after it got dark.  Not that it matters, but you know I'm also curious about such things!

And while I haven't had a clear look at two eggs yet, I'm 99.9% certain the second egg was laid today at 5:22 pm central time - here's a picture from 5:20 pm when she was fluffed up and rocking.


There are more posts and pictures on the Hancock forum - http://www.hancockwildlife.org/forum/viewtopic.php?topic=1049249#1049249

Judy ... a man by the name of Bill Kitchen has been posting on FB on the E4K page. ... well, the page is called Eagle Friends... see if you're on that one.

Bill has been watching Sequoyah pretty closely.  He noted what he took to be egg laying at 6:20 P.M. on the 3rd. Donna Young marked it at 17:21.
As for the first egg ... we really don't know for sure what time she laid it.  Bill saw her come in to the nest right at dark time - but then he couldn't see her much to tell when she laid the 1st egg.

Thanks, Patti - no clue if I'm in that group but will go check!

I did change my time to 5:21 after seeing Donna's post - I have a picture of her rocking at 5:20, and it looked as if she was done by 5:22 - so that seemed a good compromise.
