:bye 1: Bye Sandy, thanks for all the great reports and pics.

8:24 Trooper is back to feeding Coola. Ma calls out from higher up in the tree. Bella looks up at her.

8:47 Coola is now self-feeding and Trooper flies off. Ma is still up in the tree calling periodically.

9:47 I saw a parent fly off from above so assuming it is Ma that just arrived on the nest and is feeding the eaglets some of the bunny.

Hi Darlene & Sandy! Great to see the eaglets had a nice breakfast this morning. I was just looking at the rollback and like Darlene just posted, nothing much happening...after Ma fed the eaglets, and ate some for herself, she appeared to fly up onto the right branch around 10:09 am. Since then the eaglets have mostly been laying around.

12:18 pm - someone at the poles by the bay
2019-06-23 15_19_21-Greenshot_LI_Moment.jpg
12:22 pm - The eaglets had been looking over toward the flag pole area so I thought I would take a look. I don't think this is an eagle but it sure looks like it could be an adult...white head & tail...possibly just a street sign or something. This is just left of the pole that is left of the flag pole.

Not much going on right now...it's very windy out there so everyone seems to be staying in place for now.

I am now off the cams. Everyone have a great day!

Thanks for the report, Sandy - and East embedded cam is back.

Looks like two lazy eaglets in the nest.

2:52pm.......Thanks everyone for being here and posting today! It is a pleasant enough day here, but we can't seem to shake the wind of the past few days! Better than our eaglets feeling too hot in the nest though!

3:03pm...........On the neighbour's tower there looks to be an adult up high with 2 eaglets in the nest. These eaglets we think are a bit older than Bella and Coola. Our own eaglets are coming up to being 10 weeks old..........so these tower eaglets are probably about 11 weeks old, maybe a bit more. They could be fledging soon in another week or two.
