Hancock here -- Here is the photo of Jason Stoppa who donated his time to retrieving our Delta OWL egg for submission to the lab for analysis.
We got the authority of the Ministry of Environment to enter the nest in order to learn something about this egg.

This pair has had a poor history of reproduction. This is the third year of failure and we hope the analysis will shed some light on the reason the egg did not hatch, or going back, will this give some indication of why for three years this pair has failed to raise young.

Now we wait some analysis.

Again, thanks to Jason Stoppa, who had earlier volunteered his support to help our eagles and, fresh out of another tree, he came without hesitation to assist in collecting this egg.
