Did some research, mom or dad have to be on the egg 24/7 from the moment it pops out or else its toast. They usually lay two or three and then the strongest chick survives, it wins the fights over food and the others die or get attacked by the superior chick. Thats what happened on the big bear camera last winter, the weaker chick froze too death one night, the strong guy survived and then the other bad ass chick ate some of him. This ensures that there are no pussy bald eagles out there, as it should be.
Damn, thats a great view, very close. The one at Lake Pleasant still has tenants, but no eggs yet.It's that time of year again,
