Today is day 66 and both eggs are still there. Trout season is upon us. The Beaver Creek is a well-known stream in the area. At this time, people fishing it can only do so if they release the trout. May 2nd is the opener for trout fishing in the state. At times, expect the eagles to be stressed. They are not as use to this activity as Larry and Lucy were. They will undoubtedly learn over time. I would urge people to be as quiet as possible if fishing this stretch of the creek, and leave nothing behind.

Lots of in and out action in this video and a super slow mo.
One of the eggs has a two spots that are rotting. The other one should be starting soon. When the eggs are finally gone, we are wondering how much we will see B & T. Will they be around much this summer or will they go back to areas that they are used to in the summertime?
Thank you Keith Byer for the videos.
On Saturday the temps were in the upper 70°'s and today we are seeing snow. This is crazy, but I bet the eagles like it better. They have over 7,000 feathers. We saw a little yellow spot on one egg today, but we are not sure what that was. Is it stuff coming from the egg or just sticky stuff from the nesting material? How many days do you think the eggs will stay together?
Thank you Keith for the video.
