Today we had some bonus time with Shadow...........but he was well fed by the end of the day and surely he will be leaving soon. there is a fish still on the nest for some hungry eagle in the morning.

It was wonderful to see all three of them on the nest tonight! I am happy to see they all had a good meal too! Leftover fish for tomorrow! Good thing as it is supposed to be really hot tomorrow!

5:23 am well, hmmm, Shadow may have slipped out the back of the stick tree or had other plans last night as I didn't see him or hear him this morning. Ma still at the center tower. Didn't see Trooper either when I made a trip across the poles, towers and trees.

5:36 am well, there you are, Shadow. Where did you come from? The stick tree or the evergreens? Shadow lands on the outer branch and hops down to Ma's perch.

5:59 am two adult eagles at the church cross. Could be the bluff eagles as a ground observer saw an adult and fledgling in the location of the bluff eagle's nest. Could these two be the adults still watching over their fledgling? Possibly.

6:11 am Shadow doing some preening. He seems to be like a grown up eagle being content to perch. :rh:

6:28 am Ma is still at the first tower. Now Trooper is at the Delta pole and looks to be eating. Not sure but maybe leftovers from last night? Seems I remember one of them eating on the pole last but not sure. Shadow still on Ma's perch. Edit: I went back to check last night's posts and yes, one of the adults was eating on the Delta pole.

8:07 am - this is the last spot I could see Shadow flying....he kept going as far as I could tell...I did not see him come back to the stick tree....he could be on the distant evergreen tree but hard to see those branches right now.
