7:09 am this is the spot where Jean saw last night. It looks like this morning it is part of the branch in the stick tree, the best I can tell.

7:13 am a flock of birds perched on the far right tower. These were the only birds I saw on the trip around the fields. Heard a rooster crowing this morning. I am not sure I have heard one before but maybe.

7:19 am in rollback, can see an eagle circling around the distant tree, possibly hunting. Sue sent me an email as she saw this in the rollback and I wanted to record the sighting. I surely missed it when panning around.

1:33pm..Very quiet today except for the wind. The only birds I saw were one by the water........and one in a distant tree beyond the far right tower area. That's all. No eagles that can be confirmed.

The weather is improving.............brighter out there, less wind and dry. No eagles were seen in the area other than the s'cap above.

4:57 pm - this large bird.....looks like an eagle to me....flew past the bird on that small tower to the right of the Tower eagles
2020-09-26 19_58_41-Greenshot.jpg
2020-09-26 19_58_42-Greenshot.jpg
The kept going to the right for just a little bit and then caught them here as they were flying down toward the ground (eagle is at the left arrow)...but it looked like they landed on this pole (right arrow)....but I lost them at this point....not sure if they are on that pole or if they landed on the ground and I just can't see them.

5:20 pm - pretty flicker on the nest tree branch
2020-09-26 20_25_15-Greenshot.jpg
Flew over above the W Cam and started pecking away on that branch
2020-09-26 20_25_38-Greenshot.jpg
2020-09-26 20_26_05-Greenshot.jpg
The flicker flew to another branch then down to the nest and may still be around the nest tree

5:26 pm - the someone on the first tower flew off and appeared to head to the left....I lost them.....not sure if this was an eagle...the wing flapping did not seem like an eagle, but I could be wrong

I thought I was seeing some lighter color on the chest of this one so not sure if this is an eagle or not....I guess it could be a juvie?

5:52 pm - the someone on the far right tower flew off to the left....the way they flew I think this was a hawk. I was unable to follow them as they flew quickly and headed downward

5:56 pm - and just as I was getting ready to go....I checked the stick tree and just as I found someone there they flew off quickly....note that the white spot in the circle in this s'cap is not a white tail but just a lighter leaf. This some also appeared to be a hawk or something else...not an eagle as their wings were flapping really fast and I thought I saw red so maybe a red tailed hawk?
2020-09-26 20_57_38-Greenshot.jpg

6:00 pm - sorry for hogging the cams but since we had a few birds around I just wanted to see if we could wait until they flew to see if they were eagles.

I am now off the cams. Everyone have a great night!

6:48 am logging into both cams for an early morning quick check.

7:06 am logging off both cams. Did a couple of trips around the Delta and didn't see any birds. Foggy morning this morning. Did check the rollback and didn't see any nest activity.

9:24 am logging into both cams to take a quick look.

9:44 am not seeing any birds that may look like eagles but lots of smaller birds perched on trees. Also hearing lots of little bird chatter. Also hearing the rooster crowing again. Guess it is late getting up this morning.

Bird just arrived on the first pole...........think this is too slim and small to be an eagle.

1:42pm.....That's it for now.........there are definitely some eagles being seen around now............saw 2 myself this morning soaring in the sky in the Langley area..........so hopefully soon we shall see Ma and Trooper. But if they are having a good break after leaving later this year, that is good too. The Harrison Mills eagles are home now and this morning an adult was in the SR nest too.

I am now OFF both cams.

3:24 pm checking in and see the embedded cams are down. Will make a report and log in to see if zoomer cams are OK. Just saw there is a report made.

Thanks, Jean, for reporting you are seeing eagles. Hope it will not be long until we see Ma and Trooper.
3:30 pm lots of little birds at the towers. Saw a large bird flying by and followed it but moving way to fast to be an eagle.

3:42 pm lots of little birds landed in the top of the nest tree and they are making lots of racket! Wonder if these little birds are migrating south for the winter?
