8:48 am - got lucky...checking the area beyond the evergreen tree just in time to see the bird on the right fly in (most likely not an eagle), and then all of a sudden the one on the left came flying in...that one definitely looks like a juvie

8:50 am - the juvie flew off to the left...luckily had the other cam out there looking for them and they came flying in from the right side and appeared to keep going and maybe land behind the distant evergreen tree

2020-07-30 11_54_50-Greenshot.jpg
8:58 am - after a bit of waiting ....checked this building beyond and to the right of the evergreen tree and looks like a juvie on the roof here. This bird is still here at 9:09 am.

Going through rollback and didn't see anyone in or out of the nest since Darlene's post.

2;51 pm have been looking at these two at the first tower and think I see two adults with white heads. So we would have Ma and Trooper at the first tower.

4:53 pm - unfortunately one of our every day afternoon storms just popped up as I got on the cams and took the W Cam out to the first tower. The electric went out for a couple minutes. I did get it back but the storm is still around so I have brought both cams back to the nest and logged off. Will try to get back later once the storm passes.

I did look around the area and did not find any other eagles....but it's tough to see the distant evergreen tree as it is very windy right now.

7:16pm........Hi Rose! Well, it seems that only our adults are around......but there have been fleglings/juvies sighted in the distance. Could very well be Shadow.....or any of the others that are here in this area. It is so very hot.........glad Shadow is off the nest as he will have found a cooler spot to perch than in the nest.

I can take the cams when you are ready.

Before when I looked I thought crows, but now I don't think so since usually they will harass an eagle... but these ones are not bothering, so :dunno:

Yes, I thought crows too...........don't know. I wonder if that adult is down there because a fledgling is down there too? Could be a protective adult.......but who knows?
