10:30 am
I didn't notice the exact time, but adult was off the nest for maybe 20 minutes.

I wasn't able to see the egg, but am still sure it's there. This may be Dad who's on nest duty now - but I'm not sure.

10:52 am
Second adult arrived. Both there for a minute or two, then one left and the other seems to be eating, so I'm guessing maybe it was Mom on the nest, and Dad just brought her morning snack. Checked both cams, and can't see into the nest cup.

Adult with food is at far side with her(?) back to the camera; I believe the adult that brought the food is on the left, and he (?) flew away shortly after this pic.

I'm still having trouble telling them apart, and am basing my guesses about genders on the normal process whereby males bring food for females.

10:59 am
The other adult also left.

11:01 am
Adult back - maybe Mom?

And I didn't get a s'cap, but I did see the egg as she rolled it before nestling in.

12:42 pm
The eagle just left the nest.

And back again at 12:45 pm
Or possibly an exchange - this looks more like Dad. Maybe. Whoever it is, they're nestled in.

1:23 pm
Eagle is standing on the nest near the nest bowl, looking around. Doesn't seem alarmed - just standing there.

1:46 pm
Eagle just left the nest
I noticed that he(?) was facing forward and was getting ready to take a s'cap when he left

2:05 pm
Eagle just landed on the edge of the nest; looking around

2:10 pm
Moving closer to the nest bowl
I think turned the egg - and now nestling in

3:30 to 4:00 MST eagle incubating the egg...has been there since 2:20
3:59 looking u and calling
4:01 again calling
4:04 still incubating the egg.
4:06 remains on nest and is pecking at the bedding and moving it about
4:10 stands up, rolls egg ( it is deep in the cup I switched to overhead view but could not see it)
settled back down on the egg cup.
4:17 eagle flies in at 6 0'clock incubating eagle stands up and flies off at 9 o'clock.
4:18 to 4:22 eagle is standing at 6 o'clock. It is in front of egg cup so it is not possible to see egg. Eagle preenes, looks around, goes over to the egg cup, rolls egg, head goes way into the cup and then settles gently over egg facing 9 o'clock

I am off to get dinner ready. I was so hoping for a second egg but could be later today or tomorrow....talons crossed.....bblwave

Good morning! I just checked the BirdCam Forum (which is the home forum for Fort St Vrain and Decorah), and they think there might have been a second egg around 6 pm last night. Here's a link to PeggyJean's video:
I am thinking egg # 2 VIDEO!

I think I was away from my computer then - so am glad that you also saw it, Donna.

This is from 8:17 am - adult returns after a brief break - and I think shows both eggs:
