The egg laying history for this pair is as follows -

2nd Yr 2005 - 1st Egg Feb 15 - 1 Eaglet hatched & fledged

3rd Yr 2006 - Eggs Laid Feb 9, 11 & 15 - 3 Eaglets hatched & fledged (First season for the cam) Big Boy, Ms Inbetween, Spunky.

4th Yr 2007 - 2 eggs by Feb 9th (cam was down). 3rd egg Feb 12th. No hatching this season, probably due to the late inclement weather

5th Yr 2008 - 3 Eggs Laid Feb 4, 6 and 10 - 3 Eaglets hatched & fledged. (Pecking Pearl, Middy, and Tiny)

6th Yr 2009- 3 Eggs Laid Jan 31, Feb 2 & Feb 6 - 1 Eaglet hatched & fledged (Hidey)

7th Yr 2010 - 4 eggs laid - Feb 2, 6, 9, 13. Only the last egg hatched on March 21. The first 2 disappeared during a snowstorm on Feb 7, and the 3rd one was laid during a snowstorm on Feb 9, and disappeared around Feb 23. One egg hatched on March 21. This eaglet was named Palmer is honor of Deb Palmer, an eagletmomster member who passed away in November 2009.

8th Yr 2011 - 2 eggs laid - Feb 5, 8. The first egg hatched on March 17, and was named Paddy O'Joy. Our greatest heartbreak came this year, as an intruder appeared on the nest the day after Paddy hatched. The intruder prevented Liberty from returning to the nest, and Belle from getting food to the eaglet. The second egg didn't hatch. Paddy died on March 20th. Belle finally brought food to Paddy minutes after he passed. Liberty was seen on the nest on March 21st, but never to be seen again. The intruder became Belle's new mate, and was named Shep.

9th yr 2012 - 2 eggs laid - Feb 5, 8. This was Belle and Shep's first season together. 2 eaglets successfully hatched and fledged. Eaglets named Sissy and Bro.
