Eagles imitate incubation posture!

Hi All,
I've been meaning to post about this weekends fantastic observations at our nest. At times both eagles were observed in the nest bowl together. In addition one was seen getting into the incubation posture. This "testing of the nest bowl" is a great sign that indicates the birds are thinking about nesting. In combination with several mating attempts I think that many of us are beginning to hold our breath in preparation for egg laying! Time will tell.
Have a great day and thanks for all your posts!
