The embedded cam (what we can see on our website and on YouTube) is down again. I logged into the cam, and it's currently streaming.

Ken has restarted the feed to YouTube (which then goes to our Live Cams page) several times already today - and since there are not chicks in the nest, and we're not even seeing the eagles that frequently, I am reluctant to ask him to interrupt whatever he's doing to restart the stream yet again today. He does check the cams from time to time and may get it streaming again this evening - and I'll definitely include it in my list of things to check in the morning, but I hope it's OK with you all that I'm not going to send him yet another message tonight.

Thanks, Bill - I'd sent a message to Ken, but hadn't gotten back to post here or Cams Down.

(Off topic - the Surrey eaglets are branching and starting to explore the tree!)

Dvr only goes back about 45 minutes, and I didn't see any visits.

Here's a short video from Denise Foster:

Sound on for Eagles calling! This beautiful Bald eagle kept his cool though others nearby seemed to have a lot to talk about.

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for keeping the date up-to-date, nightowl!

There was a visit by both adults last night - I have video of the first part of it. One or both were on the nest from 21:01 until the cam went to black screen at 21:17 (need coffee before I can convert to pm).

Thanks for keeping us up to date, nightowl! :thumlft:

We actually had a visit today - fairly brief (maybe 10 minutes)! I must say this cam lets us see the eagles up close and personal!
20210703_054.jpg

He(?) was sort of funny at the beginning - picked up a piece of fluff in the nest, and then it looked as if he wasn't sure what to do with it!

Nice to see someone visiting!

:bye 1: nightowl!

from the dvr....

5:39 am
One of the adults on the nest with food.
20210705_023.jpg
I think this could be the one with the darker eye we think may be the female, but it could also be the light.


5:48 pm
I think this is a different visit - and maybe the other adult.
20210705_024.jpg

6:14 pm
Yet another visit.
20210705_025.jpg

6:38 pm
And there's someone back again now.
20210705_026.jpg

My wrist says I need to stop mousing, so I'm not going to try to figure out how long the visits were - but it did seem as if each time the adult had some fairly small food object and came to the nest to eat it - no clue why.

Good night, everyone!

PS - 6:42 pm, meal is done and adult is cleaning his or her beak; nest was empty at 6:32 pm; adult off at 6:44 pm - and I am off as well.

6:07 pm
Someone stopped by the nest bringing a big stick!
20210707_053.jpg

He or maybe she had it in their talons when they landed, then went to position it. I grabbed a s'cap and planned to check back a little later, but now it's 6:20 and the embedded cam is down and the when I log into the cam directly the signal is choppy so I'm not sure if it's strong enough to stream.

I'll send a message to Ken.

Happy we were able to see as much as we did see, and thanks for your posts, Bill!

Cam is back - Ken may have noticed it before I sent the message.

And someone is there.
20210707_054.jpg

And I really do need to say goodnight.

:offtobed:


Added -

Cam was choppy, but they were both there a few minutes ago.

Good catch, Bill - and I hope he/she is careful - the eagles do seem to be visiting more often recently.
