Hi CC398! Yes, I agree......I think we are all on "heightened alert" right now! You never know when they will decide to take that first big leap from the nest! It could be as soon as tomorrow or not until a week or more. :mrgreen:

9:34pm......One adult left the pole and I lost it in the darkness of the trees below. No eaglets have called out so wonder where this adult went to?

Did a quick check of the school trees......very dark over there, don't see anything that looks like an adult eagle.

9:43pm............Our remaining adult flew as well..............seemed to head towards the stick tree but I had the cam there and there was no sign of anyone going there. I suspect one or both could be up high in the tree as I'm hearing some peeping from the eaglets. But there was no big squealing as we usually hear when an adult comes close. So don't know for sure where our adults are spending the night.

Sunny came down from the stump and went to lie beside Shadow. Good buddies.
