8:05pm......There seems to be someone inside the middle tower....I'm guessing it is the adult that flew off the far right tower. But cannot be sure yet............Where is Hope?

The other adult (assuming this is not Hope) is still on the dock pole.

8:16pm......I am not seeing or hearing Hope anywhere. One would think if there was food around we'd be hearing from h/h. But instead we have seen just 2 adults eating on the poles by themselves and they brought nothing to the nest.


Hmmm............has Hope left?

8:23pm......In the school trees.......2 brownish blobs........could this be 2 eaglets? Hard to say.

They do not seem to be moving.........so I really cannot say what this is. :puzz:


8:36pm....Well, that is how lighting can fool us. Wait a few moments for the lighting to change............and I can now see that this is just the pattern on the tree limbs.........No eaglets there. :(

8;38pm......Our adults are here.........dock pole and inside the middle tower. The fact that we have not seen or heard Hope at all and the fact that one adult is already inside the tower tonight, earlier than usual..........makes me think that Hope is definitely not around. There was no attempt to take fish/prey to the nest and Ma and Trooper would have done that before feeding themselves tonight as they did.

9:15pm...Night vision came on............Hope is not in the stick tree. I have not heard one peep from him tonight. He is not close to the nest tree or else we'd be seeing him and/or hearing him I think. And it is silent.

Ma and Trooper are cuddling in the tower now...........

It looks as if Hope has gone on his way.................We shall see in the morning if that is true........he could still be back but this is the first night we've not located him or felt his presence nearby.

Thanks everyone for being here today. :grhug:


I am now OFF both cams.

5:02 am looks like Ma and Trooper or at least one of them are still in the center tower. I am not seeing any of the tell tell black spots which can usually see if Hope is in the stick tree.

Went back to look at Philippe's ongoing dates and realized today is Hope's 15 week birthday. Happy birthday, Hope! :rh: :rh:

5:32 am what an absolutely beautiful sunrise. Hope, if you have in fact begun your journey to growing into to a fine eagle, I wish you always to have a full crop and enjoy soaring in the skies. The next couple of days will tell us if you have gone on to live the life of a beautiful eagle.

5:41 am logging off both cams. I have searched all the places I know to look and didn't see Hope this morning. Ma and Trooper flew from the poles but didn't see them either after they flew. Will check back later.

6:39 am - so, I was wrong....it was two adults...I guess the one on the left had their head down......so the one on the pole flew off and that is when I saw the white head of the one on the left
2021-07-22 09_49_18-Greenshot.jpg
The other adult took their place on the pole
2021-07-22 09_49_44-Greenshot.jpg
They flew off a minute later

6:40 am - followed this adult as they passed by the far right tower, the Tower eagles' area, and passed the city pole.....then lost them as they kept going to the right beyond the evergreens

No additional s'caps as the adult was flying low and you cannot see them in s'caps

So so hard to keep up with eagles when the embedded cams are down.....I am recording, then have to stop the recording and then review so that I can see where they went to unless I happen to be watching when they leave.

Thanks for being here, Sue - and for letting us know that the two eagles have flown away from the power pole - that looked a bit scary.
