5:36 pm Checked in to see if there were any visits and who should arrive but Sur and Res.

5:07 pm The North cam was pixelating and pausing too much for a video but here is the South cam!


:vid: Sur and Res visit inspite of the snow! (5 min)

Looks like more than a wee bit of snow to me - and sounds chilly, too.
20190211_001.jpg

I looked back two hours and didn't see any visits, which didn't surprise me because I don't see any eagle tracks in the snow. I hope they're snuggled in somewhere warm and cozy. :love:

12:56 pm
Just noticed we had a visitor - I think he or she is eating what's left of yesterday's meal.
20190211_002.jpg
20190211_003.jpg

The north cam is pixelating badly, so I logged into the zoomer link to get a better picture of the eagle on the nest.

Not sure yet who it is.
20190211_004.jpg

1:03 pm
Continuing to eat the frozen leftovers of the bird that was brought in yesterday. I still haven't seen the dark spot that would suggest this is Sur, or the neckline (Res's neckline is more even). At this point, if I had to guess, I'd guess Res, based on general body shape more than anything else.

1:11 pm
And I'd be wrong - I've seen more of the chest, and I think I'm seeing the feathers that hang down below Sur's neckline. It makes sense he'd have his feathers fluffed up a bit on this chilly day.

Someone is there eating something - not sure if it's the leftovers from before or something new.

20190211_008.jpg

I've let Ken know that North embedded is having issues, and he'll check on it when he gets home - for now I've logged in to see what I can see.

I think this is Res - had a glimpse of the neckline, and also saw a spot on her head - she doesn't have an actual spot, but the feather that sticks up sometimes looks like one.

But I've been wrong many times before.

And she/he just looked away, and I thought I saw Sur's wayward neckline feathers. I don't want to stop watching to look back, but wonder if he or she is eating leftovers or something new.

Looks like a smooth neckline here.
20190211_009.jpg

Whoever it is, they seem very hungry - which isn't surprising as the snow is probably interfering with their hunting.

I just noticed that North is not centered - if another zoomer is here, please feel free to zoom. I need to leave soon.

Because I need to leave, I'm scrolling back on South.

From dvr - both adults arrive at 5:14 pm; they did not bring new food.
20190211_010.jpg

One started eating the leftovers while the other dug in the nest - not yet sure who is who.

5:17 pm (from dvr) - one left. I did not see any dark spots on the tail of the one who left, so I think it was Res that left.
20190211_012.jpg

And this picture from earlier on the dvr suggests that the one on the right eating was sleeker, so more likely to be Sur.
20190211_013.jpg

I did not see the other one return, so I think it was Sur who was eating all along.

The remaining eagle left at 5:38 pm, and it looks as if there are dark spots on the upper tail, so probably this was Sur.

Wonderful to see them both, no matter who is who. :)

6:57 pm Sur and Res come to the nest for leftovers.

5:14 pm South Cam
:vid: Sur gets to the leftovers first and doesn't give it up! (3:45)


That must have been a pretty big prey whatever it was - Res had it for dinner last night and Sur munched on it for lunch and dinner today!

Good morning, everyone. I logged into the North cam, and with the wind, the signal from the cam itself is choppy. I'm reluctant to try rebooting it, and I'm pretty sure we'd lose the embedded signal fairly quickly since the cam itself isn't able to produce a stable outgoing stream. I'll have the South embedded cam up, and will try to log into the North cam to take screenshots if we have a visit (and other zoomers are welcome to log in as well if that happens).

I know the prey had feathers, but didn't see enough to identify it. I didn't see anything else brought in - and agree that they have gotten more meals than I would have expected from it - though it probably was slow going once the meat was frozen.

8:09 am
There are snowflakes blowing around - not snowing heavily at this time, but definitely snowing.


8:13 am
Thanks, South zoomer - definitely a snowy landscape.
20190212_002.jpg

The snow looks deeper than I had realized.

10:47 am
I checked back to 8:48 am and didn't see any visits.

The wind seems to have let up some, so I rebooted North - we'll see if it will continue to stream.


1:06 pm
I think Ken may have rebooted the cams - both were off briefly, and they don't go back very far. I have had them up, and I haven't seen anyone, but they've both had some spinning circles. I did check back to 12:45 pm (as far as it goes), and had checked at least once before but forgot to post when. No signs of a visit in the snow.

We have a visitor!
20190212_004.jpg
20190212_005.jpg

North is pixelating badly for me - and I can't see the neckline on South when they keep looking away from the cam!


Maybe Sur's light feathers?
20190212_006.jpg

And whoever it was, they flew off at 3:20 pm, away from the cam while watching on South, and pixelated on North.

Well, I was just getting ready to post that there had been no activity since my last post, when an eagle landed.
20190212_007.jpg

And a moment later, a second one landed!
20190212_008.jpg

So now I don't have to try to figure out who is who because they are both there! :)

North was pixelating badly, so I rebooted it in the hopes that others could get some of the visit on the dvr.

Sur on the right (feathers sticking down below the neckline)
20190212_010.jpg

Res on the left (tuft of feathers or something making spot on the head)

And dinner is ready - sorry, and bye!

Thanks so much for the videos, gemini - loved seeing one of them move the stick and the other carefully move it back where it was!
