1:44pm.......Nothing else to see........there must be a bald eagle convention going on somewhere as there don't seem to be any around here.

I am now OFF both cams.

3:00 pm logging into both cams for a quick look around. Didn't see any nest activity since Jean's last post.

3:13 pm so it looks like two large birds perched on the tower to the right of the tower eagles' tower. Edit: just took another look at this tower and thinking there was only one bird there and the part on the right is part of the tower.

3:25 pm logging off both cams. The two large birds are still at that distant tower but didn't see any other birds.

7:47 am - I didn't find anyone on the poles or towers but decided to check out the stick tree and just keeping the cams there for a bit because I am seeing a couple spots that are darker and then seeing some bright white in there too.....it could just be the tree and leaves but just in case it's someone in there thought I would keep the cams there.

Good Morning, Happy Friday everyone.

Noted : Embedded E and W cams offline. Around 9:50 nest time could be sooner but that is when my cams went off.
Maybe Ken is working on them again.

Thank you SueB for the look around this am. Where are the eagles? Where oh where have you gone.

Waiting and waiting and watching.

Good Saturday Morning,

Noted: E embedded cam is down, W embedded cam is up and running. It is 6:04 am nest time.

A windy, rainy day at the nest and next few days off and on.
Not sure we will see any sightings for today but we have been surprised before they show up in weather as this.

Watching and waiting for Ma n Trooper to return and the other eagles in our delta area. Hope they all return safe..

8:29 am - Good Morning Delta 2! I am logging into the cams.

8:57 am - sorry, not much going on out in Delta except for the strong winds. I really couldn't tell if these were birds but just pointing them out.....the winds made it difficult to focus on these spots.

Here in the stick tree is a black spot....not sure if that is a bird or a street sign

And wasn't sure if this dark blotch is someone at the Bluff eagles' nest
2020-10-10 11_41_41-Greenshot.jpg

I logged off the W Cam at 8:57 am.
