They both started to dig into nest, fluffing. Trooper got into Ma's personal space & she beaked him.

8:43 am: Checked around again for eagles & did not see anything. I am logging off. I think my computer is going through more updates, because it is running extremely slow. Will check in later. If you see any activity on the nest, please log it here. Thank you!

9:14am............. :wave: Good morning Philippe, Sandy, Joan and all Delta2 friends! It is a very chilly morning here...............but that sun is blazing and it will warm up as the day goes by! Actually broke a record in Vancouver for the all time low..............hoping this is not a prediction of colder than normal temps for this winter!

9:30am.......There is an adult perched on the pole to the left of the flag pole (cannot confirm)............this could be our mate as they have been know to go over there. And the other adult remains on the first pole.

At 10:25 am, I found a large bird on Center Tower & is still there. Cannot tell if it is an eagle, but looks to be that size.

I have not seen the eagle in the Eagle Tree by the Bay since I have been on.

3:35 pm either Ma or Trooper flew from the first tower. Exciting as I got to follow them around the field until I ran in to the branch and lost them. Looked beautiful up in the sky soaring around.
