Eight Days Later, Egg Number Two

We were starting to think that there might be a problem with Beauty’s egg-laying this year, but she delivered, depositing egg #2 in the wee hours of the morning. Our best guess at a time, based on images from our cameras is that she laid the egg around 1:14 AM. We didn’t get a look at it until three hours later. After some well deserved rest in the nest box, Beauty left the eggs, but she was back earlier this morning.

So, when can we expect the next egg from Beauty? With our unofficial motto specto subitus firmly in mind the answer is… well, we don’t really know. Beauty’s keeping her own schedule and she’s not letting us in on it. The next egg could be a couple of days away, or another week, so keep watching!

    At about 1:30 I was watching the streaming main cam to see if I could confirm the 2nd egg and clearly saw two eggs in front of B. when she raised up for a second and settled back down on them. I did look carefully at earlier archive stills but didn’t catch the second egg.

    I was watching at 1:00AM and Beauty was very active and moving around the scape. At about 1:08AM I could fairly clearly see something appear below her rear quarters and sure enough it was egg #2! I even screen printed it to my computer to save and review. It was so exciting to watch this miracle. Yay, Beauty!

    The first egg is still viable?

    Are there still only two eggs? Beauty is in the nest right now so I can’t see.

    @pam, we don’t know if the first egg is still viable. However, we don’t have any reason to believe that it isn’t.

    @Maureen, there were still two eggs the last time we checked.

    @Shaky – Thank you!
