Sunrise Feb 21 was just right. No wind, rain or snow. Both the male and female posed for the camera. After spending most if not all the night on nest duty incubating her 3 eggs, it is essential that the female gets some exercise and perhaps breakfast. She, therefore usually leaves the nest before sunrise and the male takes over incubating duties (Photo 1). But, these are “her” eggs and she will not leave them for very long, and thus returns to the nest (Photo 2) and to her caring incubating duty (Photo 3). Although she likely got some good sleep during the night, the warm sun can make an eagle feel the need for a nap (Photo 4).
