Eggs Coming Soon

While out looking for a possible uncommon bird at a feeder, I checked on a nearby bald eagle nest. One adult was sitting in the nest as the mate was in a tree nearby. When I slowed to look at them, both birds took flight and perched in a tall evergreen tree not too far away.       

After seeing the eagle in the nest, I became curious about when they actually start laying eggs. I am basing the Bremer County bald eagle timeline on the Decorah bald eagles. If the distance does not change egg laying too much, we can expect the incubation to begin in February. So, if the process starts early in the month, we are not far away from eagle parenting to begin. And, what comes soon after…Spring!
