Hi everyone - and thanks for the great coverage today! I'm home, and catching up after a long day. I love the picture that was on the page when I went to open the cams:
20190610_010.jpg

I'm trying to look back quickly - am I correct that we haven't seen Res today?

If so, that may be a good thing - she's been watching and has decided that Sur has got this, and she can focus on feeding herself and recovering from her injury. But I would like to see a brief visit in the next day or two.


Looking back....

I am amazed at how much these eaglets have grown in the last few days - wow!
20190610_011.jpg
And it's now 5:42 pm, and I looked back to 3:00 pm, and didn't see any visits.

And I had a wonderful weekend with a whole lot of singing and not so much sleeping, so I'm going to do a quick check of a couple of nests and answer a couple of emails, then I'm off to bed. I'll keep the cams up while I'm online, but will say goodnight now, 'cause I'm fading fast.
:offtobed: :zzz:

Hi Irisheyes and Judy, No I haven't seen Res either but sure hope she is taking good care of herself. I got a kick out of watching Dee and Ess this afternoon fighting for the food. Boy! tee sure were a lot of white feathers flying. Yes, Judy, I was thinking the same thing about the kids, they cover the whole nest with their wings when they stretch. I was showing my husband, don't quite know which one it was but he/she lifted right off the nest at one point.

I'm so happy you had a great weekend filled with lots of song and happiness.
Gonna go check the nest quick and then go rest my self.
night for now.

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for the great coverage while I was away! And thanks for the weather, Bev.

North cam is pixelating, and only goes back to 5:10 am - I'll give it a quick scan then reboot it.

I see one of the black squirrels is back (see lower trunk on the right)
20190611_001.jpg

And I believe this is Dee doing a great job defending the nest from little furry invaders!

20190611_003.jpg

And I saw two black squirrels briefly - but wasn't able to get a capture of them. Hopefully they will be careful when Sur is around.


I looked back quickly to well before dawn, and did not see any visits so far this morning.

Both eaglets have now noticed the squirrel(s) - one is keeping very still on the left edge of the left trunk, just below the nest.

And I need to step away for a while.

I know what you mean, Beth!

11:49 am
I just looked back to my previous post, and did not see any visits.

I think this means that they haven't had a food delivery since yesterday afternoon - and they are plump, well-fed young eaglets, so that's not a major cause for concern - but it is unusual.


12:04 pm
At least one and maybe both of the eaglets are calling for food - which likely means they see one of the adults. They're not getting up, so I don't think the adult is coming with food - but they may be reminding him or her that they would like some. :love:

Going in on the North cam.

Well, I didn't see anyone - and it's windy enough that I didn't want to leave the cam looking towards the water. By the time I was done, the embedded cam was pixelating, so I'm rebooting it, and then I'm out for a while.

The chicks were calling loudly, so I wondered if I might find one of the adults perched nearby.


12:45 pm
The chicks are lying on the nest.

Hi Judy, I went back and checked also and no visits, I wonder if the wind has anything to do with it? The chicks are calling so they are hungry. Okay, off to look again and maybe play a game or two.. be back later.

The wind may be making it harder for them to catch fish, Beth - though we've had windier days when the eagles have been here more. Although now that I think about it, I don't know if we normally saw Res more than Sur on windy days. I doubt it - but never used to pay much attention to which adult was in when as long as I was seeing both of them and the chicks were being fed.

Added - hi, Bev, and thanks for the link.

Still no visits, but I do hear some beeping in the background. I wonder if they are delivering material to the house with a large crane? or crane-like thing..maybe they are scared to go near the nest. Will keep an eye out.

That is a good thought, Beth - the eagles are used to the normal construction in their neighborhood, but something unusual and tall could spook them temporarily.

I'm going to take a quick look around with the South cam.


I didn't see anything obvious. I thought it might be a nice day to take a peek at Mt. Baker - but I think we need to wait until the fall!
20190611_018.jpg

I'm rebooting the South cam - the controls were jumping around, and it hadn't been rebooted in ages, so this will also make it easier to look back for visits this afternoon and evening - and I do expect to see Sur, though maybe not until after 5 pm if there is some sort of new construction work that's bothering him.

And when I reloaded the page after the reboot - North had a better picture of a flap-hop than I'd been able to get!
20190611_019.jpg

And South isn't coming up, so I need to go see why. Bye....

Well drat - I can't get the South cam back up, and Ken won't be able to reboot the server until later tonight.

I did hear an adult calling, but no one has come to the nest yet. I'm watching the South cam using the direct link available to zoomers, just in case we have a visit.

Thanks, Judy, :)

Okay, Miss worrywart here is at it again. I still hear the beeping sound, (like the garbage trucks) make but I know its not a garbage truck. We get them here at the building sites and they sound the same..they usually put windows and gyprock into the houses so that could be it. I'm hoping thats it, I feel for the chicks, they seem so hungry. It must be a long day for them. :(

There are definitely construction vehicles working on the housing complex next to the Eagle Reserve tract of land - but they've been there since before the eagles started working on the nest for this season.

And I'm getting nervous too, Beth - and hoping Sur is stockpiling food to deliver at 5:05 when the crew breaks off work for the night.

No, I didn't - and while I haven't been able to spend a lot of time looking, I have occasionally seen eagles down by the water (mostly blocked by leaves now), but have not found the "babysitting perches" I expect they have where they sit and keep an eye on the nest.

What I'd give to see just one of them..Mom or dad. I can't see anything in the trees either.
