4:17 pm so this happened. The eagle I was watching at the far right tower, I thought would be either Ma or Trooper. But two eagles came in and chased that eagle away. The two eagles circled the far right tower.

4:23 pm while I was attempting to post the chase, the eagle at the far right tower flew off toward the tower eagles tower. Picked it up and the eagle on the other side of the tower eagle's tower, headed to the tower eagle's left pole.

4:24 pm so the eagle left at the far right tower flew and landed on the tower eagle's left pole. I don't know who was originally at the far right tower and who these two eagles that chased that eagle away from the far right tower.

4:41 pm the eagle (one that flew in from the tower eagle's tower area) is still at the tower eagle's pole. I didn't see any other birds. If anyone wants to look back on the DVR to see what you think of the chase, please do so. I thought the eagle at the far right tower was one of ours but then the two came in and chased it off. Now I thought it could be Ma and Trooper but think the eagle left at the far right tower after the chase returned to the tower eagle's pole. And that is what was odd.

5:57pm..........Wow, Sandy, that was amazing...........wonder if they were all local eagles or strangers passing through? I would think the eagles you saw on the big Tower were the pair that belongs there.

IN on W cam.


No eagles have been to the nest since the last post.

Ma and Trooper are both perched on the right tower at 6:14 pm nest time. Lil love birds!
Sure they will roost there for the night or make their way to the stick tree

The tower eagles are home, Yea!! both are on the nest at 6:14 pm nest time as cam
operator looking towards the tower. Glad they are home safe from migration.

A great day with visits by Ma and trooper a few times to the nest, bringing in some
dry grass, moving some sticks around , sprucing up the home . A great day indeed.

Great job cam operators today, wonderful coverage.

6:15pm....Hi Linuxgw2! Yes, it certainly has been a busy day here........even with all this wind! It is good to see the eagles returning now.............we should start to see more of them now as it looks like it has come the time for them to be home, guarding their nests.

I am guessing Ma and Trooper might come to the nest........at least Trooper might. :luck:

And I do hear the rooster. :)

Now Trooper moved to go behind the center brace. Ma on the right.

6:48pm...So it looks like Ma and Trooper will not be coming to the nest or heading to the stick trees tonight. They will be sleeping inside the far right tower. It is getting quite dark now.

Good morning,

Ma and trooper both perched on the pole. 7:22 am nest time. I'm not sure which pole
our cam operators call it, I will note it in my notes when it is noted on here so I can
be correct.

A calm morning compared to yesterday. no breeze , overcast but thank goodness the wind
has gone. Now a visit would be nice.

7:20 am so I was wrong in that both were at the right tower. One was at the Delta pole. Then then ether Ma or Trooper flew from the far right tower and met up with the other mate.

Sorry, Linux, as I was all over the place trying to get this computer to react. And thanks for watching and keeping up with our eagles activities. Smiles

7:46 am the tower eagles are at their tower upon the spikes. Their nest collapsed during the summer so they have a lot of rebuilding to do. Ma and Trooper still at the first pole, perched close together. Wonderful to see all of our eagles returning home safe and sound. :rh:

8:04 am it looked as if one of our eagles may have been vocalizing. The other changed position on the pole so can clearly see both of them.
