Ken has indeed been there - and we are now on a faster, hopefully more stable connection!

It may be partly my imagination/wishful thinking - but I'm thinking that the East cam especially is looking sharper than it did! :)

Let me know how the controls work.
Hi Judy......yes, taking the cams for a test run right now! Both pictures look pretty good but the real test is in the mornings or evenings when the sun is lower. It would be much better if we had some eagles to view, but they do not seem to be here.

Very quiet and empty feeling out there.............wouldn't be surprised if Trooper is gone now too, but we shall see if he shows up tonight or not!

3:54pm....Well, we don't have to wait until tonight............Trooper is now in the middle tower so he must have just flown in as he wasn't there when I looked before. A usual spot for him these days! So he is still here, but Ma has not been seen for a couple of days now. Good ole' Trooper.............looking after the home territory and nest for just a bit longer. :woohoo:

4:32pm.....Trooper seems content just to sit inside the middle tower and keep watch. He must have a great view of everything from there and with this breeze it is more stable there than on a tree branch.

I will try to get back on cams later tonight.............may find the Trooper hasn't moved from there.

I am now OFF both cams.

5:45 pm - I have checked the rollback and no one has been on the nest. I am logging into the cams to take a look around.

5:51 pm - we have someone at the Tower eagle's large tower
2019-07-30 20_51_36-Greenshot_LI_Moment.jpg
And someone at the pole to the left. I cannot see white on either one of these two due to the lighting

6:06 pm - the one someone is still on the neighbor's tower
2019-07-30 21_06_02-Greenshot.jpg
When I went back to their left pole that eagle was gone....I panned further to the left and found an adult flying from the left and they came back and landed on the neighbor's left pole. At this point, being on the W Cam I could see this one had a white head, so assuming it is one of the Tower adults.

6:07 pm - here is the Tower adult...I found that the zoomer screen was a little clearer for this shot than the embedded cam, but it could just be my eyes.

6:13 pm - Trooper is still in the center tower

6:40 pm - everyone still in their place....Trooper inside the center tower. He seems to be constantly looking toward the Tower neighbor's area
2019-07-30 21_40_21-Greenshot_LI_Moment.jpg
And the Tower neighbors on the left pole and tower

7:03 pm - while the Tower eagle was flying around, Trooper decided to go check things out....he seemed to fly pass the far right tower (I had lost him, but caught up to him as he was flying to the tower from the right side).

Trooper coming back from the right side of the far right tower....note that at this point the Tower eagle was back on their left pole

7:29pm..........Hi Sue! Thanks for taking the cams! I see Trooper still protecting his territory! And I would agree about the Tower adult and eaglet.......they still have been seen a bit too lately.

I can take the cams if you wish!

7:37 pm - so funny....Trooper was doing some grooming, and all of a sudden these little birdies joined him on the tower and startled him
2019-07-30 22_38_15-Greenshot.jpg
And more came
2019-07-30 22_38_48-Greenshot.jpg

Hi Jean! Trooper sure is doing his job protecting his territory. The cams are yours whenever you are ready.

7:56pm.....On the move again.......now over on the evergreen tree. Don't think Trooper likes another adult so nearby..........so he is sending a clear message by all his flying around. Stay away from my nest!

7:57pm....First real close ups in a few days.........we've been guessing this is Trooper still here as Ma was not seen on the 29th, but Trooper was...........still thinking this is Trooper.

7:59pm......What would be nice would be a trip to the nest where he is closer to the cams. Front collar looks like Trooper to me with that long white bit at the front.
