Thunderstorms are getting really bad. I'm going to jump off for a while & will be back shortly if no one else jumps on. In the meantime, please log any activity you may see.

Bella leaves the branch he'd been perched on, didn't come down to nest (that I could see).

12:08 pm: I'm back on cams for less than an hour. Thank you, Rose, for posting! No activity since I was last on, except, as Rose posted, Bella leaving the branch. I think our siblings are in the evergreen tree. I have their tails & bottom half circled.

No one still at home at Neighbors' Tower & pole near it. I bet the parents are having to keep an eye on their fledglings.

I did one last check around. One parent on First Tower. No sign of any other eagle, besides our fledgling on the branch. Leaving cams on nest & view of favorite branches. Please log any activity you see. Thank you!

2:16 pm so the tour around, I still saw Ma or Trooper at the center tower and the first tower. At the neighbor's tower, looks like two adults and the two fledglings as best I can see.

2:13 pm had a little visitor to the branch. I think this is a little chickadee, female possibly?

2:24 pm well, didn't see our fledglings as perched somewhere I don't know where to look. I need to run but will check back later. Logging off both cams.

4:38pm..........Thanks everyone for being here and keeping up with things today! It is wonderful to see our eaglets flying so well now......like they've been doing it for a long time now...easy peasy! Nature is indeed amazing! Fabulous zooming today just to keep up with them.............I think that solid meal last night must have fueled them up for the activity we are seeing today.

I will try to be back for the sunset time.........fingers crossed!

5:35 pm logging into both cams. Hi, Jean. It certainly looks like these two have found their wings and enjoy the wind beneath them.

5:42 pm can see two of the tower fledglings. One of the tower fledglings was on the pole and flew up and around the tower and came back and landed on one of the poles.

5:59 pm Ma or Trooper at the first tower and more than like the other one maybe at the distant evergreen. Didn't see our youngsters as I checked the area. They have a big world to explore.

And there is a fish waiting for the first fledgling who comes home to claim it.
