12:31 pm the only bird I saw was one at the Boundary Bay beach. It flew a short distance at the edge of the beach. Very windy this afternoon. Should be a nice afternoon for soaring. I didn't see Ma or Trooper around the poles, towers or trees.

Both eagles left the towers they were on while I was looking away of course.

Looks like they went to the center tower.

One must have already got there before I turned the cam towards it, and one is on top here.
Oct28-CenterTower1.jpg
They flew off the tower briefly.
Oct28-CenterTower2.jpg
And then flew back.

7:33 am Ma flew from the nest tree to meet Trooper at the Delta pole. I didn't get a scap but saw from the east cam where Trooper first headed to the first tower but made a turn and flew to the Delta pole.
