9:14 am - the one on the ground took off and flew around behind the port pole...I kind of lost them but they eventually came to the port pole with their mate.

9:40am............. :wave: Good morning Delta2 friends! Thanks Philippe, Sue and Sandy for your posts! Wow, Sue, you must be exhausted after all that activity this morning! Wonderful s'caps of the hawk! Thinking maybe a red tail hawk? didn't see that red tail on it, but I still think it might have been.

Today's weather:

I will be IN and OUT for most of the day.

Please post if you are watching. Thanks!

10:47am..............From the rollback...........And adult was here in the nest. I think it was Trooper but am not sure. The adult brought in a nice fluffy evergreen branch and took quite some time placing it in various positions. Good job!

From the rollback..........9:57am..........

This is the best view we've had for a while of the field eagles tower.........no one there.

1:00 pm - the W Cam has quite a bit of condensation on it.....cannot see the Delta Port pole or anything to the left....and it is also blocking some of the area over to the right.....towards the far right tower.

1:13 pm - I'm not sure which eagle this is but will assume it's Trooper since he's new here and he will go wherever he wants....I am pretty sure Ma has not been here but I could be wrong.

1:42 pm - Ma & Trooper are still on the port pole. The E Cam is now getting all fogged up too. Seems to clear up and then fog over again. Since our pair seems to be staying here I am going to bring the cams back to the nest and log off.

1:45 pm - I am now off the cams.


Edit just to add that the nest looks so fluffy.

Here's a short recording from earlier when there was an adult on the distant evergreen tree and a juvie joined them there. The first part (1 minute) is the original, and the 2nd half is a zoomed in version. When I zoomed in I noticed that the juvie seemed to slap the adult with its wing. Was kind of funny. Wish I knew if that was one of our adults and if it was, maybe that was Dusk or Dawn.....thinking Dawn would do something like that, lol.

:vid: Adult & Juvie

Love the video, Sue. Yes, the story in my mind would be Dawn pestering the adult.

3:18 pm and there they are. Ma and Trooper at the Delta Port pole. After making a few trips around the area, finally, we catch up or they caught up with me. Regardless, happy to finally see them.

3:29pm..........Thanks Sue and Sandy for taking the cams! Just got home from the vet and can help out now! Sue, I've never seen anyone in that tree before either...........all the more reason to think it was Trooper........otherwise we would likely have seen Ma there in the past.
