Sorry, I had my fingers off the button and lost him (?) for a minute. Yeah, only one at the center tower.

Hello everyone :bye 1: The eagles are starting to return. I just came from walking my dog on the beach, the tide was out. I noticed an adult eagle sitting in the sand on Boundary Bay in the Beach Grove area. It was calling out and then flew.
I came to the forum to see if our eagles had returned and lo and behold, see that Trooper is back.
It sure appears that they are now returning to the area. Ma surely will be here soon if she is not already.
Here’s to the start of another eagle season. :woohoo:

9:47am........... :wave: Good morning Delta2 friends! What a lovely way to start the day with Trooper clearly home and if I'm reading the posts correctly there could be a second eagle around??? Time will tell, and I know we all want Ma to come home now too.

Not a bad day, but sure wish that wind would go away.

I cannot be here until later.........please post if you are watching and see any eagles in the nest! Thanks!

:wave: Good morning Cherryl! Wonderful to see you back here as you are such a valuable ground observer for us! It is amazing how there can be no eagles around and then suddenly there are several! We are all excited to see their return..........now we wait for Ma. Soon I hope.

10:44 am logging into both cams for a few minutes to check to see if any eagles are around.
Cherryl, how wonderful to see an eagle at Boundary Bay. And good morning, Jean. It does seem to be a bit windy now.

10:49 am saw a rather large bird, which could have been an eagle soaring and flying. Tried to follow but lost it in the clouds.

11:47 am Trooper still working on the rabbit. He is going to have a nice crop. Noticed his tail and still looks a little "ragged."

The focus on the cams is odd lately.........taking a lot of time to focus when the cam moves or when changing betweeen FS and embedded cam views.

Yes, his neckline seems to be very noticeable..............or maybe we are just better at IDing him now. ;)

I can stay for a bit on the cams...............
