5:56pm......Ma left the pole, Pa left the nest...........Ma showed up again in the nest and began to eat the leftovers.

It is impossible for me to follow them, as neither cam is responding.

Would it be possible to replace the link to the old discussion page on the cameras page with a link to this page?

Good Morning Delta 2! It looks like Pa visited the nest at 2:18 am this morning and stayed for around 10 minutes. He checked out the nest bowl.

He tested out the nest bowl for a few minutes. It looks like they need to do some work on this. Not quite deep enough. Maybe they will start doing that later today.

7:03 logging into both cams. Maybe we can find our eagles.

Sandy, this is one of our eagle's towers. Not sure which one though. Is it the one to the left of the previous post? If so that is the far right tower. And that tower in the previous post is the neighbor's tower.

Edit: I just looked at the feed and that is the far right tower.

Good morning Delta 2
Will take some time to become familiar with the new format.
Very windy at the nest. I saw one eagle on the tower.
Lots of snow still around so I am assuming it is very cold.

Hello and good morning, Sandy. I am trying to orient myself with the tower locations. Not sure I am doing a very good job though.

So that's the far right tower and then the neighbor's large tower is the one with the two eagles on top.
