9:11pm.......Ma I suspect is up top in the tree.......Trooper puttered around the nest, left the nest and came back to the nest. We could then see him as he entered the stick trees. What a difficult thing to see!

Is it just me or does Ma seem to be staying unusually close to the chicks this morning? She hasn't gone off much.. at least since I've been watching from about 530am.

Good Morning CC398! I wonder if Ma is there more this morning due to the amount of leftovers on the nest. She would probably want to stay closer to be sure no one tries to come in and steal their food and also to protect the eaglets, if that should happen. It could also be that there is weather coming in...I think Sandy mentioned it had started raining.
