Hi Suemac! :wave:
Yes, it was really awesome to see Harriet & M15 in the nest tree together today!
I was hoping that they would make an appearance together, soon, so we could see that they are both active around the nest tree area!
It's been difficult to ID them and I do not want to just make guesses...but, it's fun to try! :chin:
I'm just glad that we can see them right now!
Have a good night and thanks for your post! ~Journi

The adult is still in the nest tree.

Good morning everyone. Since Cam 3 was still offline this am, I went to the nest. Everything looks good. M15 came flying in from the distant west at 6:50 AM. He sat in the upper branch, preened, scratched, relaxed, did a crop drop, cast a pellet, tracked. At 8:10 AM, M15 was tracking something I could not see and he flew to the east and out of sight. I stopped at yonder pond before going home. No eagles, just osprey, water birds, and a very full pond! Watch for my video later today.

M15 Is 'In The House' & All Is Calm After Yesterday"s Rainstorm 08-15-18

Since Cam 3 was still offline this am, I went to the nest. Everything looks good... the nest, nest tree, pasture areas and surrounding areas. M15 came flying in from the distant west at 6:50 AM., vocalizing as he arrived. He perched in the upper branch, preened, scratched, relaxed, did a crop drop, cast a pellet and tracked intently in the sky. At 8:10 AM, M15 was tracking something that I could not see and he flew to the east and out of sight. I stopped at yonder pond before going home. No eagles, just osprey, an anhinga a great white egret and, a very full pond!
