I was just going to try to go through rollback & jump on the cams, but the embedded cams still will not come up for me.
It's a great event to get outside and enjoy nature. I find it very exciting no matter how many times I see bald eagles.

Hmm - they are up for me - but rollback is only 10-12 minutes. I'd try a "hard reload" of your web page holding either shift or control and clicking the refresh/reload button. That is a quick way of sort of clearing the cache.

Thank you, Judy, that worked! Will get on the cams later, since someone else is on now. Thanks again!

Good morning everyone. Glad to see the cams back. Thank you Ken and BC Hydro! Parents are both close, one in the tree. I took a close look at the nest and didn't see any food and Sunny and Shadow are snuggling so haven't seen their crops yet!

Please bear with me. I went back to when the cams came back on to log additional notes from each cam.

10:22 am: The eaglets are resting.
2020-05-12 (7).png
10:35 am: The parents are perched on branches of the nest tree.

10:36 am: At the neighbors' tower, one eagle is onthe back, left spike & the other is laying in the nest near the right spike.

Afterwards, Shadow was so fidgety, he woke Sunny up. But she ended up back down.

10:52 am: I almost forgot to note, there seems to be another mature adult on Far right Tower, if I was reading the area right.

12:04 am: Sunny is up & does a PS, then proceeds to preen. Look at the feathers coming in on Stormy's wings. Really beautiful! Stormy has his head hanging a little off the edge of the nest, napping or watching the field.

Howdy, Everyone!!!

I do hope this finds you well. We are OK for being on day 58 of quarantine. Phooey...
The babes are growing so fast. I love watching them grow! The parents are so efficient with feeding, etc. Such a joy for me!
Bye for now. Stay safe.

Cams are back up. One adult arrived, I think with some sort of food. I saw the other adult flying towards the tree, and I think she(?) landed in the upper branches.

1:57 pm in rollback, I think this is trooper in with a small fish. Sunny and Shadow line up to see. Ma comes flying into the nest. I could hear her chatter.

2:10 pm one of the eaglets (Shadow, I think) is trying to nibble on the fish.

What kind of fish is this? Boy, I am not sure.

2:14 pm Shadow is working on that fish. I think I am correct but it seems to me they changed over night.

2:28 pm Shadow still trying to unzip that fish. Trooper keeps looking up and thinking Ma is up there in the top of three (I checked but couldn't see her from the cam). As I was zoomed in to watch Shadow, Ma comes down to the nest and Trooper flew.

2:20 pm Ma grabs the fish and takes over to the right side of the nest. This seems to me where they like to eat their meal. Ma is feeding Shadow and Sunny. Checked to see Trooper flying from the evergreen.

2:42 pm hard to see with the lighting right now the tower eagles. I think there is an eagle up on the spike and can see where someone is down in the nest.

3:08 Trooper brought in another fish and Ma started feeding the eaglets right away. They both got bites but it didn't take long to finish it off.
