9:11pm........Ma and Trooper tucked in for the night! We have been privileged with another day here with them, but the sightings are fewer and fewer. How much longer until they leave? Won't know the answer until it happens.

Jean, I think the Tower eaglet remained on their Tower. They just moved back in front of the post.

5:28 am in rollback, Trooper brings some evergreens into the nest. Works to place the branch and then hops up to the branch.

7:37 am did a quick tour and didn't see Ma or Trooper at their typical places. Did see an adult at the church tower and the neighbor's tower. So logging off both cams. Will check back later.

7:47am........... :wave: Good morning Delta2 friends! That is interesting Sandy about Trooper in the nest with greenery.....last year when he started doing that, Ma had left I think........then he stayed around for several days tending to the nest by himself. Wonder if Ma is still here? We shall see.

Lovely day again.

2:26 pm logging into both cams for a quick check. Looks like the cams went offline as only go back about 13 minutes.

Did a quick check of the towers, poles and evergreens and didn't see any eagles at all. Hopefully, Ma and Trooper will get together tonight at the center tower as they have been the last few evenings. 2:38 pm logging off both cams.

7:22pm.........Who do we have here on the evergreen tree? Not one of our eaglets or even a new fledgling.......this one has a yellow beak and feet and lots of white underfeathers. Maybe a second or third year eagle.

7:25pm........Beautiful young eagle. Wonder if it is one of Ma's and Pa's from the past? Silly to think that as there would have been lots of eaglets raised in this area.

7:48am............As we saw Trooper delivering greenery to the nest this morning I have to think this is him inside the middle tower. We have not seen Ma on cams today and I cannot see a second adult around so Ma may have left. If she doesn't come by tonight I will think she is gone now.

8:17pm.......This adult inside the middle tower is the only adult I've seen tonight. I think it is Trooper. This morning he brought greenery to the nest, which is exactly what he started to do last year when Ma was gone. It sure looks like Ma has started her migration now.............she doesn't seem to be here tonight.

8:25pm......Our adult inside the tower suddenly flew off and one returned 29 seconds later.......I assume it is the same eagle but could not follow its flight. Now on top of the middle tower. Still no sign of a second adult, so this must be the same adult..........Trooper.

9:19pm..........Today, there was no sign of Ma. It is likely she has now begun her migration north towards the easy salmon. Rivers up there are already receiving spawning salmon, free for the taking. Trooper has remained to take care of the nest and watch over the territory. Just as he did last year when he was new here.

Save travels Ma.............eat a lot of salmon, don't worry about a thing..............and return safely to us in the Fall. :rh:

Be safe Bella and Coola wherever you are.

Trooper is in the school trees tonight. Wonder how long he will stay now that Ma is gone?

Thanks everyone who continues to watch and post about this nest. Thanks zoomers for your dedication and caring for our eagles.

I am now OFF both cams. :nite:
