Hawk's Nest

The first egg was laid in the hawk's nest yesterday. I had a suspicion when I went to view it, but wasn't sure. Today Lisa told me about it, and I went and checked the time line. Sure enough - March 13th was the day.

The second eagles' egg has hatched now, so we can get a look at the feeding process. That late afternoon sun is sometimes so bright that it can be a bit hard to see them.

Thank you for your comment on my bog. It made me feel a little better.
Regarding your hawks' nest, that is sooooo awesome, to be able to be a part of nature in such a profound manner. We live on a lake and are amazed at the new wildlife in springtime, (especially the pesky muskrat and his "wife"...)

Excellent! May the babies crack open their shells with much health and vigor!

You have your own hawk's nest? It is amazing to have such wonderful surroundings. Can't you take some pictures for us to see the babies without scaring them?
Thank you for your encouragement about waiting for spring, I hope it comes soon, as I am so tired of snow.
