I was rushed for time this morning but took a quick walk out to the nest viewing site on Peebles Island on my way through Waterford.
Initially, as I approached on the trail, one eagle was on a branch next to the nest The other one then joined and eventually they were both on the nest. I'm now thinking no egg(s) yet, but I'm no eagle expert.
I'm also assuming that the smaller male is the eagle on the right and the female on the left, but I'm no eagle expert. Odds are that from now on there will always be one or both eagles on the nest.
I'm hoping for a lack of severe weather for the rest of the season to increase the odds of more than one eaglet surviving this year.
