Good morning, and thanks for starting the day here, nightowl!

8:24 am
We have a visitor!

Unfortunately I can't get any closer - it's near the upper limit for what the cam can see, so I can't zoom in without the bird disappearing over the top of the window.

I wish the lighting were different so I could see the feathers better.

Tried changing the camera to the stream we use for recording, which is higher resolution (can't do this for long because the bandwidth doesn't support it for streaming) - and unfortunately the images weren't much better.

There are calls in the background, and the visitor is aware of them - but this is apparently far enough from the nest of the resident pair that they aren't going after him or her.

Bev or Bill - I'm thinking young eagle - but have to confess I don't know much about hawks, and I haven't seen an adult eagle there to provide a frame of reference for size. Something about the head doesn't look quite right, but that may be the angle or the wind. Top picture looks like an eagle, but the lower one is a bit different. Thoughts?

Great pictures of the landing - thanks so much, Bill!

I tried to get a couple more closer pictures off the cam because it was looking l bit brighter.

I think it's the first bird of any kind that I've seen on that branch. :chin:

Thanks, Bill!

Added - I also haven't noticed anyone perched there before.

And I need to take a break - will be back in a while.

Great pictures, Bill - and thanks for checking in, Bev, and for posting the weather. It looks a bit chilly in spite of the sun.


4:10 pm
The cam has been looking at the perch tree for a while, but looking back quickly, I didn't see any visits.

Lovely evening, and I'm hearing eagles though I can't see any. I think they are close, but hiding from the cam.
