Hi Jean! I can't believe you keep finding extra eagles in the area. I hope that Pa chased the extra one away from the first tower.

2:01 pm - from the rollback - Pa came to the nest. It looked like he just came down from the tree so he may have come back after Jean had last posted. Pa checked the nest out a bit but then just sat with Dusk and Dawn.

Thanks Sue for posting............I don't know what to think about whoever has been out on those poles, yesterday and today. Sometimes I think I see a flash of white, but am not sure if they were adults. They could be juvies. It doesn't make a lot of sense that Ma and Pa would tolerate them there, but who knows? :dunno:

I am IN on both cams.

3:10pm........Someone is on the first tower...........don't see any white, so maybe a juvie or large hawk. But when it is so bright outside we often don't see the white on an adult eagle, so it could be one of ours......can't be sure.

3:42pm..........Pa came back a moment or two later...........he is feeding Dawn, but all the eagle bodies block the view so I can't see if what he is feeding them is something new that he just brought in or not.

4:33 pm - I took the E Cam out to see if anyone was on the first tower and there are two someones. The one on the right has a lot of white on it's chest. Could it be a juvie eagle? Or are there Osprey in the area?

Here is Ma up on the branch only 8 seconds apart so we know she's not on the first tower.
