Thanks for the scaps and reports Bev - Here's some vids to go with ......

7:40 pm Adult (Looked like Res's dirty tail) brought in something - Ess managed to grab the meal and refused to share! Dee made several attempts but got nowhere ........

:vid: Ess says "No Way! You didn't share with me last night!"

It's nice to see how well Ess is now doing at preparing her meal! Another step accomplished!

Shortly after Ess left the nest, Dee came flying back in and poked around the nest for leftovers. Not finding much she flew to the slanted branch and proceeded to screep for the next 25 minutes before deciding it wasn't doing any good and left again.

:vid: Dee, ever hopeful comes back to try for nestovers!



And later ........
Sur, in with some eats, looks around as if expecting a couple of eaglets to arrive and listens to the cheeping coming from somewhere near by (odds are it is Dee!) before settling in to eat. He leaves some of his dinner behind when he flies off. No one came to claim it - I guess it's too late.

Good morning Marg, gemini, Bev and Judy... I loved all the video's today and yesterday. I wonder why Ess was running around the nest with her food?...lol.

Judy. so glad to hear your fingers are feeling a bit better, try not to do too much so they hurt again.

I see there was a good-sized seagull in the nest again. Well, at least the top half of it..lol. :%:

Thanks, Beth!

One of the fledglings arrived on the nest around 12:30 pm and did some work on the left over seagull. Not sure which one because the cam was pixelating.

The second arrived around 1:08 pm. The one on the nest is the one who was there first.
20190720_002.jpg

The other one moved onto the nest to look for leftovers at 1:37 pm, and the first one left the nest and went out to a perch. I think Dee was there first, then Ess arrived and Dee went to the perch.

Around 1:52 pm, Ess also went to a perch, near where Dee was (both on the right side from the South cam view). And around 2:00, one of them came back from the perch, and lay down on the nest.


It's now 2:38 pm, I've just rebooted the North cam, Ess is lying in the nest, and though it's not easy to tell in the light, Dee is perched on the right, partly behind the slanted trunk they run up.

Good morning, Marg, Bev, Beth, nightowl, and all!

North has a spinning circle for me, so I'm rebooting it; nest is currently empty.

I've had the South cam up on my iPad while I puttered around the house, and heard some calls but didn't see anyone. I'll do a check of the dvr once the reboot is finished.

From the dvr....

South goes back to around 8:20 pm yesterday, and there was a fledgling on the nest then.
20190720_006.jpg

Around 8:22 pm, she began eating something - Ieft the video running until she began eating and there was not a delivery, so I think she was working on leftovers.


The second fledgling arrived on the upper perch on the left at 8:31 pm, and the one on the nest spent some quality time screeping at the newcomer to get lost. :)
20190720_007.jpg

The second fledgling moved down to the nest at 8:33 pm; still no clue which is which. They both spent some time looking around the nest, and I think at some point the first fledgling moved away from the food item she had been eating to try another old dried thing, and the new arrival spent some time with the item the first one had been working on.

One of them, maybe the one that was there first, moved out to a perch on the right at 8:55 pm
20190720_008.jpg

and then flew off calling. The other one continued to work on leftovers, and left a little after 9 pm (amazing how light it still is at 9 pm!). That one looked dark and sleek as she was preparing to take off - so maybe Dee. But as long as we're seeing both of them and they both seem to be doing well, I'm not too worried about figuring out who is who.


Added July 27 - I believe this is the last confirmed sighting of Ess; on July 20 she was 96 days old, so almost 14 weeks, and had been flying since July 8, so 12 days. My guess is that she left on her great adventure early on the morning of July 21st, though if the wind was right and her instincts were calling, she could have headed out right then.

Continuing....

I didn't see any other visits yesterday evening.

I found a video from North starting at 5:34 am and running to 7:34 am (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGJULsdQpDA) - there were calls at the beginning, but I didn't see anyone come to the nest. I also did not find any morning visits on the South cam.

However, while I was looking back - someone arrived! One of the fledglings arrived at 8:45 am, and went to work on the leftover gull wing.

I'm not seeing any white fringe on the tail, and the tail is rounded most of the time, so I think this is Dee.
20190721_001.jpg

She went up to one of the perches then flew off around 9:01 am.

It's 9:09 am, and the nest is empty except for an occasional chickadee.

Good morning everyone. Thank you for the start of the day here Bev. Sure is a lovely day here today. and thank you all for the reports on our beautiful fledgelings. I was away all day yesterday as we had company, daughter and dear son-in-law came to take the bed to our grandson. I missed not checking in on the nest to see what was what so thank you all for the reports and videos. I looked this morning but didn't see anyone there.

How are your hands today Judy? fine, I hope.

I am off for a bit and hope to be back later.

Glad you were able to enjoy a visit with family yesterday, Beth - I was at a baby shower for my nephew and his wife. :love: And my hands are much better, and I hope yours are improving also.

11:10 am
I looked back and didn't see any visits since my last post. North camera is looking a bit off, so I'm rebooting it.

I do hear calling, so I know at least one of the fledglings is nearby.

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


Didn't see anyone - but they are hard to see when they're not moving. I moved the South cam over a bit - it's close to getting glare from the sun in the morning, which is not good for the cam. I think this still shows most of the places they perch near the nest - and we almost never can see them anyway when they're hiding behind the leafy branches.

And moved into the nest.

I'm thinking Dee, though it's hard to be sure. She's doing some calling.

Hi everyone, I find it very difficult to tell them apart now as they get bigger and we aren't as used to what they look like its way harder.. I am just glad when I spot two of them...lol.

My hands aren't too bad today Judy, and ty. glad you had family time yesterday as well.

2:40 pm
The fledgling I think is Dee went up the slanted trunk to the perch there shortly after my last post, and is still there, calling occasionally.
20190721_005.jpg

I haven't been watching constantly, but I've had the cams up and the sound on, and haven't heard any sounds to suggest a visit by an adult or even the other fledgling.


2:50 pm
The fledgling just jumped back down to the nest.

They do find strange positions to rest!
20190721_006.jpg

I'm still thinking this is Dee - and for the record, Dee is 14 weeks old today, and has been flying for a little more than 2 weeks now. :love:

Wow, Judy, 14 weeks and flying 2 weeks already..time sure does fly, I was thinking about when I first came on watching the little ones hatch out. I was amazed! Now they have left the nest and are almost on their own. They are beautiful, wish they had been banded and we could look back to see what they will look like as adults. I feel like a proud parent myself. lol I wish them all the luck in the world. ;)

It's 6:30 and Dee is still on the nest tree calling out. She has been there since JudyB's last post going from the nest to the slanted tree perch to the nest and back again calling out every minute or so.
7-21-2019  4-11 pm.jpg

7-21-2019  6-38 pm.jpg
I think I hear Ess not too far away as well but don't see her anywhere.


8:12 pm Dee finally left. She is likely close by as I can still hear eaglet calls.
7-21-2019  8-12 pm.jpg

11:40 pm All is quiet - no calls for sometime now and no other visits.

Good morning, everyone!

I took a quick look back on the dvr and didn't see any visits to the nest or the perches, though it's easy to miss a quick visit. I have been hearing calls by at least one fledgling this morning, and am pretty sure I've heard two once or twice.

I'm rebooting the North cam and will take a look down by the water in a minute to see if I can see any of the eagles hanging out there.

7:19 am
It looks like a nice day to be down by the water - and this might be one of our fledglings! I didn't see any white.
20190722_002.jpg

I'm going to be doing a few other things on the computer so I'm going to leave the North cam looking at the water for a while, to see if we see anyone else. The South cam is watching the nest, and I'll log in and bring the cam back if anyone shows up at the nest.

Well - this is sort of exciting though I haven't a clue what's happening.

7:57 am
I saw someone flying towards the nest.
20190722_004.jpg

And I think someone landed in the nest and maybe someone landed in the upper branches. And one or both flew in and out a couple of times. And there was calling. I'll go back and get some s'caps once I'm sure the action is over.


8:23 am
I know one of them is near because I can hear the calling, but I looked with both cams and didn't see anyone.

Good morning Judy, gemini, Bev, Marg thank you Nightowl for starting the day here again. Isn't that a lovely shot of the fledgeling in the air.. Thank you, Judy. they are so beautiful t look at. I see the one sitting to the right in the branches and the nest is empty right now. I don't see near as many flies in the nest now as I did before so they must really clean up all the scraps.

I am off again for a while, go to take all the cardboard and styrofoam to the recycle branch. I will come back and peek around later..
take care, everyone.
