A lot of mating today at GSB. Michelle and Travis have been very vocal, sounds like stronger defense of nest. Around 2:40pm nest time, it appears Travis may have brought prey to nest box for Michelle. Both in nest box. Eggs are sure to be arriving soon.

I love the way the bluff looks in the morning with the sun on the rocks. It won't be long now until we're watching eggs!

Michelle and Travis were working on their scrape this morning. GSBDweller thinks she's made a positive ID on the bands on Travis.
GSBDweller: Looked like N/06 to me. I'd say confirmation on Travis
Eggs are getting close.

Michelle and Travis are busy, busy, busy this morning. I took a snip of the "dance" at 7:09 a.m. and the chatters said it was their 4th time already this morning.

It looks like Michelle is going to stay in the box tonight for the first time this season. I think this might be it! FINALLY!

Last night we were watching Michelle on her eggs when she suddenly jumped up and stood on the rim of the nest box. She looked alarmed but didn't make any noise. Our imaginations went from GHO in the area to her just wanting to catch some snowflakes on her tongue, to UFO and finally after she kept standing there gazing up into the sky, we decided she was just a pefa in deep thought pondering the meaning of life. I don't know how long she stood there but Shep said she stood most of the night on the perch or the rim or inside the box. She laid her 3rd egg sometime before daylight and it could be she was just in egg labor and uncomfortable? She was watching something but we don't know what. GSBDweller panned around to see if we could see anything at all that she was looking at but we couldn't see anything in the dark.
GSB panned the eagle nest this morning and there were two adults in the nest, too. One flew out as soon as the cam focused on them but the other one stayed. I wonder how many eggs they have? Eggs, eggs everywhere!
