both perched on the backside of the stick tree.

Saw ma fly off the pole, cam op following then ma went down toward the field and
wala she was in the stick tree. how on earth did she get there that quick without
us seeing her fly across in front of us.
I was watching the whole time with cam following and I can't explain it.

Magic! lol they sure are fast..

All tucked in now on the backside the stick tree, is 6:39 nest time.
Sweet dreams Ma and Trooper! Glad you are home safe to us.

Great job cam to all the cam operators today and tonight!

6:40pm......Thanks for being here tonight Linuxgw2 to see our adults finish off their day! A great ending to the day for us too! Although Ma did not come to the nest for a close up view of her I don't think there is any doubt it is her. Their habits and behaviour tell the story.

Thanks everyone for being here today! It has been a rewarding day here and the relief and happiness to know that both our adults have returned safely from their migration has all been worth the time that has been put in here on the cams! :grhug:

Sleep well Ma and Trooper. :rh:

I am now OFF both cams.

6:41 am - Good Morning Delta 2! I am logging into the W Cam now just to be ready in case Ma and/or Trooper come to the nest early....seems a bit windy and maybe raining right now.

7:06 am - yesterday, Trooper had come to the nest by this time....different morning...different weather...still quite dark out and seems quite windy. I don't even hear the rooster yet....everyone is sleeping in.

7:10 am - and just like that, the rooster is now up and calling out. Oh My Gosh, also hearing eagle calls!!! Just love the sound!

Glad you heard the eagle calls, Sue - I was coming here to report them, and thought Delta was the only cam where I had sound up - but wasn't sure about that. And I just heard another call - around 7:21 am.

Good Morning Judy! Yes, that last eagle call was on the nest tree but I think they are perched above the W Cam so we cannot see them.

Good Morning Carleen! I sure hope they know too. Can't wait for the weather to clear up a little so we can get a good look at them....especially Ma since she hasn't been to the nest yet.

7:54 am - the weather is really nasty out there right now....high winds, rain, and fog. I took another look around and did not see our eagles anywhere....the first tower is not visible at this time due to the rain drops on the cam cover and the fog. Even the nest is not clear due to the rain drops on the cam cover. I have not heard our eagles call out since earlier. I will keep the cam up just in case one of our eagles does come to the nest. If another zoomer would like to take the cam please do so.

8:06 am - I just took another quick look around and did not see our eagles anywhere.

I am now off the W Cam. If anyone is watching and sees our eagles land on the nest please post. Thanks!
