Looks like two eagles on the tower and one flew.

Hi Sue. Looks like the eagle is still at the pole. The west cam has mucky on it so visually a little difficult at times to see there. Needs a good "car wash."

So that was probably who you heard earlier. Sometimes it sounds like they are in the nest tree but they are here instead.

Sue, I am going to have to get off here as we have one big old storm pounding away and don't want the "lights to go out" leaving the cams high and dry.
So logging out of both cams. 12:23 pm

Our eagle is still on the evergreen tree so it wasn't scared off by them. Maybe someone else came flying around.

Okay Sandy, no problem. I have a few things to do so won't be able to take the cams now. Maybe later. Thanks for zooming and finding that young eagle.

12:35 pm - Ma came to the nest. Looks like she may have come in from the evergreen tree side, so maybe that was her on that tree earlier. She only stayed for a few minutes, grabbed the leftover wing and chewed on it, and then flew up to the right branch.

2:41pm...........Thank you Sue............no eagles have been in the nest since your last post. I am IN on both cams..........it is actually turning out to be a lovely day.

Very quiet out there.............condensation on the cam covers is obscuring our view in places.

3:06pm..............There is definitely one eagle in the eagle tree......cans see flashes of white.......and someone else flew down to the left. Almost impossible to see because of the condensation.

The EAST zoomer cam is really hard to control at the moment so have put it back on the nest.

Closer view. They aren't that far from the nest. Maybe they fly over soon.
