Okay so I had to find out where our other eagle went to so I looked back on the E Cam that was aimed at the eaglets and they told me exactly where they went. Their stares will never lie.

8:02pm........Thank you Sue! I am IN on both cams now so will check the rollback and have a look around!

ADDED: Nothing of significance on the rollback that I can see...........eaglets moving all over the nest, but mostly just lying down. Right now there is a lot of glare because of the sun being so low.................they are still just lying down.

Good morning, Cheryl and anyone else who may be watching!

I'm going to reboot the cams, so expect them to each go offline briefly. With luck that will help with the sticking that some of the zoomers were experiencing yesterday.

Done! Happy observing!
