5:13 am Shadow could be heard and then seen flying in probably from the stick tree. He lands in the nest and looks around.

5:15 am Shadow lies down in the nest and is calling out. I wonder of Ma and Trooper will ignore him at this point to help him kick in his instinct to begin his grown up eagle journey.

5:25 am Shadow is been calling out and finds "something to eat" in the nest. Not sure what it is though. Ma and Trooper are at the far right tower and are bent over as if they maybe eating.

5:28 am Shadow still munching on some leftovers. He certainly has spotted Ma and Trooper at the far right tower.

5:44 am then Shadow flies but actually he pops down into the evergreens. I didn't realize this until I went back for s'caps. I went back to see if he was still in the evergreens but couldn't see him but still could be there?

6:04 am Ma and Trooper are still at the far right tower. They are perched now versus bent over as if they were eating. I just heard Shadow but the sun is too bright to go to the evergreens to see if he is still there.

6:09 am this trunk of the stick tree has fooled me so many times as it looks to be shaped just like an young eagle perched in the tree.

7:55 am - Good Morning Delta 2! I am logging into the cams.


7:29 am - from the rollback - looks like one of our adults came in with a huge bunch of grasses and Shadow came in thinking it was food

7:29 am - from the rollback - not sure which adult this was but looks like Trooper's tail to me...he was off quickly as Shadow went after him

8:03 am - close ups of Shadow....and as he vocalizes....he'd better get his butt in gear and start moving on....and learn his eagle life. I'm really surprised the adults are still here but guess they have to make sure he finds his way north.

8:16 am - the adult on the far right tower must have left and come close by the nest tree....could even be up top now but can't find them. Shadow thought they were bringing food as he started to vocalize non-stop

2020-08-01 11_20_28-Greenshot.jpg

After a couple minutes he laid back down but was still very vocal
2020-08-01 11_22_00-Greenshot.jpg
I checked around but did not see the adult in the evergreen tree, distant evergreen, or far right tower.

9:45 Shadow is now perch on Ma's branch
