Good afternoon, everyone - and thank you all for posting!

I just checked back to Bev's post on the dvr, and caught a very quick visit by Sur at 9:01 am; saw the dark spots on the upper tail as he flew off.

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for the reports, video and weather!

8:49 am
I checked back to Bev's post and did not see an eagles on the dvr. There was a chickadee visiting the nest, but hard to get a screenshot.

I just watched the video (thanks, Bill!) - it looked to me as if Sur brought the bird to the nest, and then Res arrived and claimed it, though there was a bit of beaking before Sur backed off and left! Nice leisurely meal for Res - and I think Sur got a few bites before she arrived!

The feathers stand out on a gray day.

(Snow here in Maine, with a coating of freezing rain - not my idea of a nice fall day!)

Hi everyone! Someone was on the nest around noon, working on leftovers - I'm thinking Sur - that bit of gray is not where Res's cowlick is, and Sur had a dark spot earlier, but hard to tell.
20191112_002.jpg

He left at 12:27, and I didn't get a good look, but thought it was Sur's upper tail.

Lots more feathers in the nest when he got done.

It's now 5:38 pm, and I didn't see any addition visits on the dvr.

Good night, everyone. :offtobed:

9:41 am Just checked the DVR back to Bev's last post and no visits were recorded.

The DVR was only going back 2 hours - in case anyone is coming across the same thing, clearing cache and a "hard refresh" (shift, refresh) solved the problem - it now goes back 12 hours.

Good morning, everyone! Thanks for the info on the dvr, gemini - some of the Delta zoomers were having that problem, and a hard refresh didn't help, so I'll suggest clearing their caches as well.

Looking back on the dvr, and someone arrived at 10:05 am with whaqt appeared to be a fairly small food object - maybe fish, as she (?) seemed to be pulling off and eating big chunks.

Now that I've watched a bit longer, she (still not sure) might be eating something left from the previous meal - it looked as if there were some bones. And this looks like Res to me.
20191113_002.jpg

She flew off at 10:09 am.


It's now 11:39 am, and I didn't see any other visits since gemini's last post.

Checking the dvr....

Res, I think, in with a stick at 4:25, and Sur there a moment later. It's such fun to watch them work on the nest. And it sort of looks as if Res, with cowlick sticking up, is working on the nest, while Sur helps clean things up by eating bits of the "nestovers" - the remaining bits of meat on the bird carcass in the nest. It looks as if they left around 4:30, then returned a bit later, and finally left at 4:52 pm.

Here are a couple of pictures:

Res with big stick - you can't see her cowlick here, but the shadow of it is visible.

Res is nearer the cam - and the cowlick is very visible

I like Sur's neckline here (on the left)

Continuing from dvr....

Res is on the left, and you can see the shadow of her cowlick on the top of her head - and I don't know if it's a permanent feature, but Sur has a bit of a dark spot on his head, but not in the center; it's a bit off to our left, his right, in this screenshot.

Continuing from dvr....

Res back with another big stick.
20191113_009.jpg

Possibly a better look at the stick.
20191113_010.jpg

Sur also brought in at least one stick, though Res had strong feelings about where it should go - but Sur won...this time!

I still think - with absolutely no real evidence to prove this - that Sur is a younger male and Res is a more experienced female - and I really love watching them work together!

It is now 6 pm, and I didn't see any additional visits. Good night, everyone. :offtobed:

11:36 am Checked the DVR and There were two visits to the nest this morning. The first at 7:07 by Res followed a couple of minutes later by Sur, He brought in a stick and went to help Res dig around and move grasses. Res left at 7:10. Sur moved the stick he had brought in, poked around and stood and looked until he left at 7:15.

Res first in

Sur moves his stick to where he wants it

There was another visit at 8:45 am (it was a fun visit) - Res brought in a huge stick and wrestled with it for well over a minute. Sur joined her and together they worked on the nest for another 4-5 minutes. Res left first then Sur several minutes later. (edited to remove s/l parts!)

:vid: Res brings in a huge stick!

Hi folks! Thank you all for your reports, pictures, videos, weather and all!

I looked back to gemini's posts and didn't see any visits.

My arthritis is acting up so I may not be online much for the next couple of days, but I will check in and report when I can.

5:26 and already dark - I really like living where I live, but I'm not so fond of winter.

Goodnight, all. :offtobed:
