2:31 pm - two adults still on the 1st neighbor's small tower

And the hawk is still on the center tower

I'm not sure where the other two adults flew to but I looked around everywhere and was not able to find them. Maybe they are high up in the nest tree where I cannot see.

2:38pm......Wow, Sue...great zooming! Catching the neighbours there and also what could be Ma and new mate! They seem to all be coming home now, from wherever they all went! :D

Maybe Ma had to go to retrieve Trooper and drag him back home to get things underway for the season! :mihihi:
Jean, I love your reasoning for why Ma took so long to get back here after that bad weather. Maybe Trooper was lost, lol.

2:42 pm - since I lost them twice and now can't seem to find them I have logged off the cams. They are free for whoever would like to search our eagles down. Hoping they come to the nest so we can see if that was Ma and Trooper, or some other beau.

Have a great afternoon everyone!

Oh I to love your idea, Jean. Ma rules so she might had to send the signals as time to get back home.

I am logging into the cams for a little bit. Jean, if you come on, just holler if you wish the cams. Good job, Sue, in locating eagles!
3:34 pm logging into both cams.

Thanks so much, Jean. Yeah, I made several trips around the area checking towers and poles, plus evergreens. No eagles to be seen. So I guess it is afternoon rest time for them. Appreciate you taking some s'caps.
4:14 logging off of both cams. Hope everyone has a good evening.

Looks like there could be an eagle on the far right side of the log in the bay.

Looks like it has a white head to me.

I don't think Ma is going to show herself tonight Rita. Much too much fun out there elsewhere and she doesn't need to be here just yet.
