Good morning, everyone!

Tiku is 109 days old and has been flying for 27 days
Tucca is 108 days old and has been flying for 25 days
Last sighting of a fledgling was July 19 at 8:01 am (viewtopic.php?f=114&t=505&p=488205#p488205)

It's a lovely misty sort of morning - but I am missing the screeps. :love:

I've been listening to the dvr from when it was getting light while I pulled things together for this post, and (not surprisingly) have not heard any calls.

As a reminder, solo eaglet Romeo at our White Rock nest is 6 weeks younger than Tiku, so she's about 9-1/2 weeks old now - you can watch her and parents Mom and Dad White Rock here - viewtopic.php?f=14&t=507&start=6510#p488836

And I do expect the adults to stop by at least every couple of days for a while longer, tidying up a bit in preparation for next year.

I think I see someone perched in the tree way back on the left -

I'm going to log into the South cam to take a closer look.


I've added a preset that's a little closer - Adult_Perch_20x
20210721_004.jpg

My first impression is that this might be Res because the collar looks pretty even - but it's really hard to tell at that distance with shadows, and I think Sur is there more often. Maybe.

Saw one of the juveniles soaring in the sky at 174 and 4th. Landed in one of the big firs next to the Little Campbell. Stayed there for a few minutes and then headed off to the west

I did a quick check of the dvr, and didn't see any activity on the nest or visible perches in the nest tree.

The adult flew off at 2:38 pm, heading to the right - the little dot in the right side of the red circle is an eagle (and I only know because I could sort of follow his flight - no way I would have been able to see him otherwise). You may need to click once or twice to even see the little red circle towards the right side.

3:55 am Checked the DVR back to JudyB's post and there were no visits to the nest. However, I did see an adult perched in the far left tree for about half an hour.

Good morning, everyone!

Tiku is 110 days old and has been flying for 28 days/4 weeks
Tucca is 109 days old and has been flying for 26 days
Last time both fledglings were seen together was July 14 at 5:30 am
Last sighting of one fledgling was July 19 at 8:01 am

20210722_001.jpg
15-21-14C = 59-70-57F


I checked the dvr and didn't see any visits. I also had the sound from the North cam dvr running in the background starting around 4:20 am and didn't hear any calls.

Looking at the significant dates from last year (viewtopic.php?f=114&t=407#p238559), I'm noticing that the adults stayed away from the nest for a while after fledgling Thor left, and then spent a few days stopping by fairly regularly - so I do expect to see them on the nest a few more times before they take their summer break.

It's now 8:38 am, the nest is empty and I'm not seeing anyone in the far left tree.

I believe I hear one of the eaglets screeping at 10:46.

I saw what looked like an adult eagle fly into the upper branches of the tree a few minutes ago - I wonder if that's related.

I saw part of that, CC - I'm thinking Sur brought food and Res came down from the upper branches to claim it - but I was busy with something so only saw it out of the corner of my eye.

Added -
Thanks for taking a look around - and you found someone!
20210722_010.jpg

Not sure which one this is - but if Res has the fish, this may be Sur since h/s isn't eating.
20210722_011.jpg

Added several days later so this is in chronological order; the video is also posted again when I actually got it processed and loaded later in the day.

I just went back to the switch between Sur and Res on the nest that CC caught - and Dad Sur isn't quite the gentleman I made him out to be - I think he took fish head with him when he left in a hurry as Mom Res dropped down from the branches overhead. :mihihi:


:vid: Take the Fish and Run! (2:30)


It looks as if Res found some leftover bones and worked on those briefly, and may have taken the bit of carcass with her when she left - not a good angle to see, and as CC pointed out, there's quite a bit of junk on the nest!

I'll head to the North Cam now so we can watch and enjoy the adult for a bit.

Not sure even with a look at the eye and tail.

I'm pretty sure this is Res

20210722_015.jpg

I think Sur is there too - isn't that a tail on the left side of the tree trunk, about level with Res's head?

Feel free to zoom - wasn't sure if you saw my message, and it's been a while since we've seen them together. I'm out South cam if you want to go back in.

I'm pretty sure Sur is higher up, looking at the feathers on his neckline.

Good question! At least it's big enough that no one should get tangled in it! :%:

The windy conditions aren't great for Eagle finding. I'll try again later.

I'm off to go stalk my local Nest. The Eaglet there is about Romeos age or a little older. It's such a different perspective from the ground and then not knowing what's going on in the Nest, not knowing if they are getting enough to eat etc. I like the idea of being able to see the Juvie in action once they fledge.

Sounds like ticked off Eagle callings!
