7:50 Good morning everyone! I am hearing trilling! No eagles in the closest trees and south cam is back on the nest. Bev has an eagle in view on the north cam.

I took a good look around on the NPTZ - the flats out past Mom's perch by the river are interesting - there is a fair amount of water. Wonder if there are any fish carcasses still around? I didn't spot an eagle, though - there or anywhere lol!

No eagles in the lone tree or on the flats beyond [that I can see...]

Thanks Bev for noting the time the eagle was on lone tree. I was watching and wondering how long they would stay and then I got busy and see they left . Thank you for the s/caps everyone. 12:58 pm Mar 3

You are welcome Heather and thanks Yolande for the zoom..... I am wondering with so much water on the river if Mom and her mate are over the other side of the river... where they can have some salmon .. just a thought :D

1:06pm - Hi Everyone. Thanks for the zooms and obs and finding that eagle on the lone tree. Guess that is the only one around? :(
I will take a short zoom on the SPTZ since no on seems to be coming to the nest! Hi Yolande...see you are on the NPTZ.

Hi again - sorry, I was distracted by some paperwork! LOL

I see you're on the SPTZ, Gail - I'll just leave the NPTZ on the lone tree for a bit - maybe something will fly by! ;)

1:15pm - I see a possible eagle on the tall trees by the river. The picture is hard to see but I do believe it is an adult and there may be another adult to the upper left of this one but I can't quite be sure.

Can you get a view of it form your cam, Yolande?

Now I wonder if another eagle is just to the right of the first eagle who is still there.
This is a stretch but with full screen I think I may see one there. Wish I could zoom closer!

Hi Gail - I can't really get a good scap of the river view on the NPTZ...here's the best I can do, but I don't it's nearly as clear as yours. I wonder if that is an eagle? That would be two today - but also could be the same one twice. :chin:

ADD: 1:39pm I'm going to go and try to come back later [have a lot of stuff on my desk to deal with LOL] I'll put the NPTZ back on the nest for now - Good Luck, Gail! :bye 1:

Hi Yolande,
Yes I see that you do not have the same sharpness on the NPTZ. I do think there is the one eagle but, as you said, this may be a repeat of the same eagle....guess we are just desperate to see some action at this point, LOL!

Hi Bev. Yes, I am sure you are right and, after all, there is still plenty of time for Mom to get into "nesting mode".

Congratulations going out to Ma and Pa Delta 2 on their first egg of the season and the first at one of our local eagle web cams. We knew it would be soon as they were bringing in lots of soft nesting material for the cup of the bowl.

Talons crossed for Mrs. Honeycomb and her new mate.

Thanks for letting us know Karen... Happy for Mom and Dad Delta! :rh:
