2018-05-07 08_24_38-Greenshot.jpg
5:00 am - Ma is tucked back and sleeping, as are the eaglets

5:09 am - from the rollback - Ma flaps her wings to warm them up
2018-05-07 08_30_56-Greenshot.jpg
And then she flies up into the tree and vocalizes to Pa that she is leaving the nest.

Good Morning Bill! Sorry, I didn't see you there earlier.

5:10 am - from the rollback - the kids watch as Ma leaves the nest (appears to be Dusk on the left and Dawn on the right)
2018-05-07 08_28_00-Greenshot.jpg
5:12 am - Dusk gets up to do a PS, and thought s/he was going to hit Dawn. Good shot Dusk!

From the rollback - just some s'caps of Dusk & Dawn going through their morning.
5:31 am - I think this is Dusk on the left, and Dawn on the right.

Thank you to whomever reestablished function to the live feeds.

Also, thank you for the wonderful s'caps while the cams were down, as that's a welcomed, dedicated effort!

I hope everyone has a pleasant day ahead.

Good Morning Roy, Robert, and Marg! Thanks for the video Marg, glad you caught the PS.

6:41 am - from the rollback. I was wondering how Dawn (I think) had a stick laying across him/her and was able to catch Dusk (I think) doing some wingers. Look at the feathers coming in.
2018-05-07 09_50_10-Greenshot_LI_Moment.jpg
And here's where Dusk put the stick on Dawn's back.

2018-05-07 09_50_26-Greenshot.jpg
I just heard some adult vocals near the nest so going to log into the cams now.

7:01 am - I think this is Ma on the tree branch. Hard to tell as it is quite windy and the cam was moving a bit.
2018-05-07 10_03_07-Greenshot.jpg
2018-05-07 10_03_40-Greenshot.jpg
Hmmm, now here are the two darlings, one sleeping and one with their eye open. So, I am guess it is Dusk with their eye open, and Dawn sleeping, but they are looking so much alike here.

7:07 am - looking around for Pa. He is not on the first tower/pole, or the Delta Port pole, or the Center tower/pole.

Pa is not on the far right tower/pole
2018-05-07 10_12_18-Greenshot.jpg
I can only see one neighbor on their large tower and they are on their nest. A little blurry as the cam is moving quite a bit with this wind.

7:13 am - I was hoping to get a good close up of Ma with the W Cam but she has turned around on that branch so I will need to get the E Cam back on her.
2018-05-07 10_15_39-Greenshot.jpg
Ma is calling out. Maybe Pa is in the area.

7:19 am - tried to get a close up of Ma on the branch and as soon as I zoomed in on her she took off.

And there's her feet and tail, and I thought she went to the evergreen tree but she wasn't there.
2018-05-07 10_23_23-Greenshot.jpg
Not sure if this is Ma up in the tree a little higher. In a place we can't really zoom into.
2018-05-07 10_24_03-Greenshot_LI_Moment.jpg
7:23 am - the kids sleeping peacefully on the nest.

I looked around again for Pa and was not able to find him anywhere. I assume he may be out fishing this morning. Except for the wind, it looks like a beautiful morning. Here is Delta Port again, bright and sunny.
2018-05-07 10_31_28-Greenshot.jpg
7:31 am - both eaglets were awakened by something. Just guessing again, but thinking this is Dusk in the foreground because of the bigger area of gray around the head and less fluffy white on top of the head.

7:44 am - Ma flew off the branch and I followed her on the screen but didn't really have my eagle eyes ready to actually see where she went. Need more practice. But you can see the red arrow on this 2nd s'cap and she actually went to the right after this. Eagles never seem to fly straight at their perch. I assumed she was going to the pole by the flag or the first pole, but she actually went to the Delta Port pole.

8:00 am - assuming this is Ma and that she is still out on the Delta Port pole. Bringing the cam in since it's swaying a bit and since we have eaglets to zoom in on.
2018-05-07 11_03_15-Greenshot.jpg
This one 'let, guessing Dusk, gets up to do a stretch and then a PS
2018-05-07 11_03_48-Greenshot.jpg
I could be wrong about the ID based on this s'cap, as the other 'let looks darker in the face.

2018-05-07 11_18_33-Greenshot.jpg
And the other one still out on the Delta Port pole. So everyone is accounted for, just can't confirm who is who at this point.
