7:32 am something went wrong with IE and had to close. Logging back in. 7:37 am IE froze on me and had to restart. Came back and see Ma and Trooper have flown from the poles.

7:32 am both Trooper and Ma flew off.

11:23 am the eagle at the Delta Port pole must have some food as looks like munching going on. Sorry as I can't seem to get a clear view with the ghosting. Our other eagle is at the first pole. Ma and Trooper certainly has been satisfied to stay in one place for awhile.

1:09 pm I think there is an eagle on the backside of the fair right tower. Looks like a white head reflecting off the light. Hard to get a good image with the ghosting but think it is. Probably our other mate. So Ma and Trooper are at the first tower and this one.

2:53 pm one of our eagles is still at the first tower perched in the same place as before. So this must be Ma since Trooper visited the nest with some grasses. At least I think it was Trooper.
