12:53pm..........From the rollback.......Adult in the nest at 11:41am.............looked like Trooper but I could be wrong..........couldn't see much of the adult as it was working with sticks at the side of the nest.

1:02pm.....Definitely an adult on the far right pole. Could be one of our pair as this pole is in their territory.

1:19pm.......There looks to be a large bird perched in this tree by this house which is situated at the right of the bay nest. Big enough to be an eagle.

Looks like both bay eagles in their tree.

1:44pm.....Well, look who we found! Guessing this is Trooper low down on the left side of the evergreen tree. So that would likely be Ma on the far right pole. No way of verifying the IDs at this point.

2:06pm..........It looks drier out there now..........hoping the rain is gone for a while. The eagles on the field tree and the middle tower were still there too. Maybe not too active right now with this wind?

I am now OFF the W cam.

3:28 pm - here is the adult up in the tree...I had heard Ma's vocals but didn't see this one vocalizing so maybe Ma is up higher....or on the front of the tree....can't see there except for with the E Cam.
