Harriet & M15 spent the early part of the morning together flying around their territory, adding sticks and grasses with each return to the pastures and mated on the attic branch. These are all behaviors that mated pairs exhibit that strengthens their bond to each other. Also eagles mate ten months out of the year, but the period for egg fertilization is short (normally 2 weeks or so). It takes 8-10 ten days after successful fertilization for an egg to be laid. Harriet's usual egg laying time is mid-late November. As November draws closer, H & M will spend more time preparing the nest and mating will happen more often.
Thank you SWFEC, hosted by Dick Pritchett Real Estate, for providing & maintaining such suitable trees & environment for this Bald Eagle Family. www.SWFLEagleCam.com
