6:17 pm thanks, Jean, for coming back and checking to maybe see Trooper again. I am off for the night. Exciting evening to see Trooper in the nest!

6:24pm.....Well, I think Trooper is long gone for the night now. Once Ma gets home we should be able to see more of them at this time of the day as they tend to stick around once both are here. There is no sign of Trooper anywhere.

So glad you are back Trooper! Welcome home! Now we wait for Ma to show.

Thanks Sandy for being here to catch Trooper and I'm so glad he came to the nest for you to catch that!

I am now OFF both cams.

Question:

The E cam is offline, the W cam is looking straight down at the nest up close. Is there a way to move the W cam up so we can see more like we do on E cam where it faces up and out looking over the nest to the fields? Until the E cam is back online.

Cannot see anything on W cam if Trooper and Ma come to the nest flying before they get to the nest.

Thank you, Linuxgw2

Good morning, Linux. It would be so nice but the position of the west cam in the nest tree (installed on the tree trunk on west side of the tree) is such that if it were pointed away from the nest the view is only of the field pointing toward the poles and towers. And then we would lose the view of the nest. The east cam is installed on the east side of the nest tree and so it gives us a view of incoming to the nest. Hopefully the east cam will be back online soon, especially since we know Trooper is back and soon Ma will follow.

7:53 am watching and thinking this eagle could be Trooper based on the shape of the shoulders and do not see Ma's ruffled feathers on her wing.

8:14 am so going to have to say I am not sure who is at the far right tower. Seeing some of those feathers sticking out away fromthe wing. Could this be Ma? Oh wish they would come to the nest so we can see. Anyway, not sure who is at the far right tower.

8:43 am some little birdies at the evergreens and our eagle is still at the far right tower. Checked the other poles and towers and didn't see any other birds other than these two.

Thank you Sandy for your reply to my ? on the W cam position and clarification.
I didn't realize where it was positioned on the nest tree. Hopefully our E cam will be up and running soon.

It is so good to see we have an eagle on the tower. It is Ma or Trooper ? like you said one time looks like Trooper by size and then Ma by her ruffled side feather. Now they need to come
to the nest. lil rascals keeping us waiting.

We are all ready, we are waiting Ma n Trooper :)

9:27 am - Good Morning Delta 2! I am logging into the W Cam. I checked the rollback and there was no activity on the nest since Sandy's last post.

Great to see Trooper on the nest yesterday! Thanks for catching him Sandy!

Just a note on the E Cam....it appears the cam did come up for about 1 1/2 minutes yesterday at 5:24 pm.....not sure if someone at the site tried to re-start it but thought I would mention it and will also do so on the tech thread.

9:54 am - was looking around the area and just getting close to the Tower eagles' area when a large bird came flying into the scene from the left....and flying just to the right of the small tower near the Tower eagles' area....they kept flying to the right, passing the small tower and then the city tower and appeared to be heading downward, but I lost them after that.

9:56 am - got back to our eagle, still on the far right tower....and noticed that the large bird that was on the distant tower to the left is no longer there. I wonder if that was them flying over to the right?
2020-10-11 12_59_22-Greenshot.jpg

10:08 am - took a quick look around and did not see any other birds...it is starting to rain....cam cover has lots of rain drops on it.

Just checked rollback and no one to the nest since Sue's last post. It is really windy out there and is pouring rain. :rain:

Did a quick check of poles etc... no sign of Trooper at the moment... we know how much he hates the wind, so hopefully we'll see him again when it dies down.

12:35pm....... :wave: Good afternoon Sue, Sandy, Rose, Darlene, Bill, Bev, Linuxgw2 and all Delta2 friends! It is great to see Trooper back on the poles...........he waits for Ma's return along with us all!

The weather is not the nicest today......has worsened since this morning so it might be a challenge to see Trooper today if he is close to the cams!

12:48pm.......Well, that was a quick look! It is nasty out there right now........lots of wind and rain. The view is minimal and what we can see isn't good. But there was no sign at all of Trooper or any other eagles in the nearby spots.

Stay safe Trooper and Ma.

I am now OFF the W cam.

Ken will try to get the West cam streaming to our Live Cams page. He has a couple of things to do before he can work on that, so it may take a little while.

1:42 pm logging into the west cam to see if there is anything to see.

1:51 pm it is still very rainy, windy and messy. Didn't see any birds as they are likely tucked in somewhere away from the weather.
