6:44pm........From the rollback: Pa had been covering the egg but got up to have a snack of something he found at the side of the nest. Ma landed in the nest at 6:11pm...........she likely had just been up top anyways.

6:54pm.........When I got back here on the cams I tried to locate Pa..........the stick tree was too dark to see anything there.............several poles were dark too.............managed to get a look at some poles and towers where the sky was lit up in the background............could not find Pa, but he will likely not be too far away. The neighbour's tower was also too dark so could not confirm an eagle staying there for the night.

Thanks everyone for being here today. :grhug:

I am now OFF both cams. :nite:

Looking over to her left, this would be where the stick tree is, so maybe Pa is there.
