8:26 am one of the eagles is preening. So nice to have great weather to be able to see Ma and Trooper much more clearly.

I am posting the video of Trooper's first visit to the nest on October 10, 2020, to bring it forward to the new thread for this year. So this post is out of sequence to record Trooper's homecoming. He flew from the first tower at 5:12 pm that afternoon to the nest. After picking around the nest, he then flew to the evergreen.

:vid: Trooper's homecoming

9:52am...... :wave: .Good morning Sandy, Linuxgw2 and all Delta2 friends! Thanks Sandy for posting your video! As we no longer have an archive here it is a great addition to our forum! The rollback only lasts for a limited time events are lost forever now........if anyone watching wants to post or make a short video (a few minutes only) it would be much appreciated.....thank you!

A much better day here today...........great to see the wind is gone and the sun is out!

9:51 am in rollback, Trooper poked around the nest and then flew. But the cam wiggled so not sure he went up to a part of the tree or not. Could be he is bounced off one of the branches.

10;05am............Don't know which way Trooper went. He could be up top in the tree. There is one adult on the first pole.

Now that the long branches have been shortened we may find our eagles not perching as much on them.......they might choose to go up to the higher branches. But any eaglets would still use these shorter branches.

10:13pm......This is a really long shot.............this area/tree is the dead looking tree to the left of the bluff nest. I can see 2 white dots there......might be those eagles or not. Something to watch for........too bad the view is so unclear.

10:16am......There's Trooper! Didn't see him at first as he blends into the evergreen tree.

So that would be Ma on the first pole.

Checked the rollback........the first time I looked Trooper was not here, so I did not miss him then. :no:

10:27am........Handsome Trooper........looking all around. Wonder what he thinks of that rooster crowing? He seems to be watching where we cannot see. The field area beyond him is mostly hidden with tree branches now. We cannot see the distant evergreen as it has a tree branch in front. We will need to wait for the leaves to drop.

11;07 am - focusing in on the right side of the beak to look for the crease and it is not there, so assuming this is Ma....has those indentations on the top of the beak like Ma has

2020-10-14 14_07_58-Greenshot.jpg
Not the clearest s'cap here but can see those ridges on top of the beak and can see some markings in the left eye. If this were Trooper those markings would not be there as his eyes are much clearer

11:08 am - one more s'cap of Ma...pulled the cam back a little and it is a clearer picture
2020-10-14 14_08_11-Greenshot.jpg

11:09 am - Ma flew off the nest as I was zoomed in all the way to her face.....Trooper followed after her....found both of them on the Far right tower
2020-10-14 14_09_41-Greenshot.jpg
11:19 am - Both are still there right now

11:22 am - can hear the sound on the zoomer cam now but the screen is black.....and a few seconds later just came up. Unfortunately the Embedded cam screen is still black

Zoomer cam just went down again...when it comes back I will log off. Controls seem extremely slow to react...slower than they have been. Not sure if it's on my end or the cam itself...thinking maybe IE is an issue.

11:29 am - the Zoomer cam came back up....quickly checked on our eagles...they are still at the far right tower....then checked the Tower eagles as that was where I was going when the cam went down....both of the Tower eagles are on their tower as well.....

Unfortunately it seems that the W Embedded cam screen is still black. Zoomer cam is working.

Ken just called from Delta - and both zoomer cams should be working now!

I'll see if I can get either of them streaming to YouTube and the Live Cams page, but that may need to wait for him to get back to his place and his computers.
