9:55 am: Our couple are still on their same perches. Logging off cams now. If you see any activity on the nest, please log it here. Thank you!
It's a great event to get outside and enjoy nature. I find it very exciting no matter how many times I see bald eagles.

2:07pm.......One tower eagle for sure to the right of their tower nest. Not sure if that white spot to its right is another eagle or just a glare from the sun.

6:17 pm nothing has changed with Ma and Trooper at the first pole and tower. I am thinking Ma is perched on the tower based on size (?). They have had a few wing stretches while perched. The tower eagle is still at home too.

6:34 pm one of them (Trooper) I think is in the branches on the right and Ma is on the left in the branches in the trees by the school. So now, both are tucked in for the night. I could see them both hoping to the branches after landing.
