5:30 pm Checked back to Bev's last post and still no visits from Res or Sur. Taking a "mental health" day maybe - as some were apt to do back in my working days - I never had the nerve!

11:10 am Res arrived at the nest at approximately 9:50 followed shortly after by Sur at 9:51.They spent time digging in the bowl, moving a bit of fluff and the usual S&L. Sur left at 9:55 and returned at 9:57 with a stick that was quite awkward in shape and they both tackled the job of placing it. They spent several minutes battling the stick until Res gave up, went back to S&L and eventually left the nest. Meanwhile Sur carried on fighting with the awkward stick trying the same thing over and over until he too had had enough and also went back to S&L for a few minutes before leaving at 10:04.

:vid: The great stick battle! (4:44)

Good afternoon, everyone - great to see everyone checking in!

2:16 pm
I looked back to Bev's post and didn't see any visits.

North cam is looking and sounding choppy so I'm going in to reboot it. I'll take a quick peek at that perch tree while I'm there.


No one on that far perch.

When I refreshed my browser after the reboot, this is the cover image I saw before clicking play - nice picture of our furry visitor.

6:30 pm Checked the DVR and found a late afternoon visit from both. Res arrived at 4:28 followed by Sur. Both immediately tackled the wayward stick from his morning and Sur made short work of it by breaking it as he forced it to the side of the nest. Some digging and moving of fluff for several minutes happened with the odd bit of beaking each other in the process. They didn't stay long, Res left first and then Sur. Both gone by 4:35 pm.

I checked the dvr back before it started to get light, and didn't see any visits so far this morning.

I sat down at my computer at 11:09 - and a minute later an eagle landed!
20191218_001.jpg

I'm pretty sure it's Sur - and he's still there, standing and looking, at 11:22 pm.
20191218_003.jpg

North is pixelating a little, but still fairly clear, so I'll wait a bit to reboot.

And now I need to do something else. Sorry & bye!


Added - he flew off just after I posted - maybe 11:24 am.

Good afternoon and thank you for the "great stick battle shot" I watched and enjoyed every minute of it. It's amazing to me that the two of them work so much in sync with one another trying to place one stick .. and a BIG stick it is...lol. I think that is why they are so successful in raising their chicks.
I didn't see any action in the nest when I was there. :bye 1:

Good to see you here, Beth!

12:24 pm
In on North doing a bit of a look around before rebooting (no visits since the one I mentioned earlier).

There doesn't seem to be anyone at the far perch.
20191218_004.jpg

This is the far perch we usually see from the South cam when it's set to a wide view - no one there either.
20191218_005.jpg

I like leaves - but have to say we have a much nicer view of the water when the leaves are gone.
20191218_006.jpg

And the North cam was only zoomed a little for the last screenshot - so I'm guessing the eagles could see the nest from any of those trees in the distance.

I was going to peek at the cams before heading to bed - and they both just went offline. I also cannot connect with either cam directly, so I suspect there's a power outage at the site. I am not seeing one listed, but it's often a while before they show up on the outage map (https://www.bchydro.com/power-outages/a ... e-map.html) - and when I just went back to get the URL for the outage map, I'm seeing a new outage in the area where I think the nest is located:
20191218_007.jpg

I know the nest is fairly close to the US border - and fairly close to the water - so I'm guessing it's in this area. I'll post in Cams Down and send an email to Ken.

Late here - goodnight, all! :offtobed:
