It seems to be quiet now. No more vocals.

I am now OFF both cams.

I have left the S cam showing the nest. There are no eagles on the night perch but they are likely close by in the tree.

The one on the perch has flown off - and I'm afraid I need to "fly" as well - have a good day, everyone!

6:47 am in rollback and out of sequence, I wanted to post this series of looks from SF but I skipped passed them. It looks like she may have been watching something above. Maybe she was watching SM? Don't know but loved seeing her look up. She also has a crop drop.

10:57 am
Someone is on the nest.
20221124_002.jpg

Looking back, someone brought a stick around 10:51 am - maybe SM, because of the eyes. The end of the tail also looks whiter than that of the one there now
20221124_003.jpg
Whoever it was, they flew off a minute or two later.

And at 10:55, the adult who was on the nest when I came to the computer arrived - thinking SF, though I can't point to any specific features.
20221124_004.jpg

And the adult who may be SF flew off at 11:01 am.


Very quick look back, and I didn't see any other visits since the one Sandy observed around 7 am.
