2:37pm.......With only one cam working it will not be possible to keep both adults in view at the same time.......will have to go back and forth I guess.

Here they are: One on the far right tower..........and one inside the middle tower. :woohoo:

2:47pm....Hi Sandy and Linuxgw2......yes, I think we can feel confident that this is our pair! So good to know that Ma is safe as we were not sure about where she was..............but with both here, we know they are ok.

2:49 pm yeah, Jean, the heart flutters thinking they are together again and both are safe. Now, time for Ma to make it to the nest so we can see her beautiful face!

3:05pm...........I hope they will both come to the nest so we can get a positive ID..........that might not happen until later. After that is done we should be able to start up the new thread.

Yes, I can take the cam. Just let me know when you are ready to leave. Thanks for zooming, especially since Ma and Trooper showed up together at the same time.

I hope she does too, Jean. But right now, they look pretty comfortable just perched together. Again, thanks for being on this afternoon so we could see.
