The happy couple is expecting! And if Tami’s calculations are correct, they should be born right around opening day. Which means, we’ll be able to get a head count (when they can hold up their heads) around two weeks after that.
Tami has marked it on her calendar. She’s all ga-ga and well, you know how she gets about her eagles and her loons.
Look at how big the nest has gotten! Isn’t that like, an eagle mansion or something?
The last time we saw the nest grow to this size, there were triplets. But Tami keeps telling me that we already had triplets, just a couple years ago. And THAT was a miracle.
But I can’t help wondering . . .
Because they’re still adding to it! Tami just watched the mate of the nesting eagle bring a branch in today!
Tami still has to put on the snowshoes to get to the lake. She tried to go without yesterday, ’cause she was in a hurry, but she sunk up to her knees one too many times.
There’s still ice on the lake too. We can’t wait for the wood ducks, geese and loon to get back. Tami’s getting a little tired of taking pictures of chickadees, Red-breasted woodpeckers, and nuthatches, as cute as they may be.
We’ll keep you posted on those eagle babies!
