    Hey, thanks again; great post. I guess one man's trash is another man's treasure; although I don't see how anyone could not enjoy this. BTW, is there a house being built nearby; every now and than I hear what sounds like hammering in the background. Just curious.

    After Pat mentioned the 'eye in the sky' view, I finally saw it, and you can see a couple of houses near the water. I've heard the hammering too, and at the time, it seemed to cause the eagle some distress. At least, she became very fidgety. I didn't see the construction though.

    Just to let you know, I googled The Eagles of Hornby Island, and the web page is very interesting. It answers a lot of questions about the eagles--how they put up the web cam--what the eagles thought of the web cam and so much more. You should check it out if you are interested. I just think this has been amazing to watch.
    Have a better day Andrea!!!!

    Thanks for this, as we had many questions about the Eagles..

    Both eagles were just in the nest with plenty of room to spare. That's a big nest. The mother is feeding the eaglet a fish now. I'm starting to worry about the other egg. So far, it doesn't seem to have even a crack. I read that it was laid four days after the other egg, so I'd think we'd be seeing something by now, but maybe not.

    i read the same thing too about the other egg coming 4 days later.
    so, the eaglet in there now is 4 days old, give or take a few hrs.
    the egg can take anywhere from 6 - 24 hrs to hatch once the hatching process begins.
    (per my niece morgan who in 4th grade has been taught everything one needs to know about eagles)
    i enjoy watching the swapoff parenting duties...one hunts, the other tends to the nest/eaglet/egg.
    dear husband "knows" which is the mom and which is the dad.

    From what I have read, the female is the dominant one, and is bigger than the male. She is also the one that spends the most time on the nest while they are still in their eggs (I think I read that right) I am getting worried about the other eaglet also--love it's heart. I tell ya, the eagles really take care of their little ones. Yesterday, there was a little bird close to the nest and the parent just raised it's head, and the little bird left.

    I'm worried about the other egg too, Andrea. I'm afraid our little eaglet is going to be a singlet. But boy, it sure has grown. It looks very healthy and is thriving.
