New thread. What a beautiful day today.

We had a U.S. senator here yesterday. He got very excited when we pointed out the nest and the eagle that was standing on a limb nearby. Out came his camera and a big telephoto lens, and I think he got some great shots.

We got almost an inch here in Loudoun, but looks like less in Shepherdstown. My friend Pete, in an email last night, reported 16" at his home in Maine.

Steve Wunderley and I were just meeting with a reporter for the Martinsburg Journal who is planning an eagle story. We watched as the female came onto the nest and sat down, just as the rain started.

We too thought maybe it's time for an egg. But no egg yet.

However, it is very interesting that she flew in and sat down where the eggs would go, just as the rain started. Now that the rain's stopped, and she's off again (and perched a few feet away from the nest as I write), you can see that the nest is dry in that spot.

Steve W. says that's a good sign. But only time will tell.
