Hi again all - it's so nice to see the nest free of the snow again and hope that's it for the rest of the season!
Didn't see or hear anything, not even any wind which is so nice.

Hi everyone and thank-you for your obs and updates...

Will peek around on the NPTZ - I don't hear any eagles trilling at the moment!

434pm All quiet - I haven't seen or heard anything...

Nothing on Mom's perch or the lone tree..or at the river view.

4:48pm Will put the NPTZ on the nest and try the SPTZ

Hi again..

Gail was wondering about this object to the right of the trees at the river view. I don't know for sure, Gail - but my guess is that it's a log which has escaped from a log boom and settled or lodged there on the sandbar. I have seen log booms go by there on the PTZ cams. Nice perch for an eagle. ;)

Seems an adult has appeared in the tree tops to the right of the lone tree ...not sure.

Hi Yolande..I was watching you zoom ... it looks like an eagle perch in the tre eto the right of the lone tree and I agree about the log in the water ..
It is staying bright longer now on H Mills...... have to check another nest and I will peek in her later.. I will keep the cams up..

I think it's an eagle, too, Bev! But, it isn't moving much - maybe waiting for someone to join it? :)

5:49pm The eagle in the treetop has been preening - just saw a nice fan-tail!

The eagle flew about 5:53pm - just after another eagle flew past the lone tree going from right to left.

Off the SPTZ 6:00pm


From the NPTZ - no-one on Mom and Dad's perch..

2nd eagle flying by the lone tree

Sorry the scaps are out of order...at least they're both there!

6:13pm All is quiet - I don't hear eagles, and none are perched close to Mom and Dad's perch that I can see..the days are getting longer!

I am off the SPTZ

ADD: Knowing there was an adult so close to the nest last night was very encouraging - I, too, was hoping we'd see another close up today, Bev! Maybe tomorrow....

:bye 1:
