Wonderful to see that the banded lady at Harrison Mills is still fertile. Since we know she is at least 23 years old, perhaps 35 or more, I was beginning to wonder if she had past her prime.
This year, while a lot of people think that everything biological was late due to our cold winter-spring, the opposite is the case with our nesting eagles. I have seen precisely the opposite for our nesting eagles. We have had eggs in the first full week of February, about two weeks earlier than I had seen before. This makes the spread between pairs even greater.
Has anybody else else witnessed earlier nesting, particularly suspected or known eggs?
