This thread is for Discussion, Observations, Screenshots & Videos solely related to actions / events / occurrences at the White Rock nest.
When making your posts, please type the time first, then your observation of the activities. Although we tend to want to humanize our eagles, they are wild birds so please try to avoid the temptation to speak for them.

Posting Guidelines
Screenshots and photos and/or links to videos are welcome in this thread as part of the discussion. We welcome all screenshots and videos of the White Rock nest captured via the webcams. Screen captures are limited to three (3) per post and should be no more than 500 pixels wide. Please use the file tag (not the IMG tag) when attaching your captures. Also, make sure you save your captures in the JPEG format.
As a courtesy to viewers with slower internet connections, please limit the pictures in each post to no more than a total of 150,000 bytes. Please do not post animations (though it's fine to post a link to them). Please limit smilie/emoticons to three (3) per post. Also, some members have difficulty with moving smiley/emoticons so please limit those to one (1) per post (of the three (3). Please remember this thread is solely for observation/discussion regarding the events in and around the nest area.
Thank you for your cooperation!

We have four PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras for the White Rock territory: Closeup and Wide Angle are
Vivotek cameras, the South camera is an Axis Q6035, and the new North camera is a HikVision camera; the Closeup and North cameras are now located on the 2016 nest tree.

11.25a I checked the cams this morning, at 8.33a I heard trills, i got on zoom cams and started looking, i found an adult eagle on north tree , she/ he was there for a while , i also noted lots of Crows protesting. the eagle flew off from there and at 8.55a landed on nest , worked in nest for a bit , and moved to the side branch,
from there flew off and I presume landed on tree directly in front of the nest by water,
so , beak looks like Moms , tail a bit of new, a bit of dirty feathers , molting? part in back of head .trills like moms
scaps that i took and video i uploaded. PS , Sunrise and possibly a Falcon on Merlin on OT(old tree) as well

October 3rd and an eagle appears at WR! Thank you for all the posts and video! This female eagle does have Mom traits and behaviors as you have mentioned.
a couple of scaps from your video - Mom? eagle on the nest and side branch. She appears a bit travel-worn, but checking familiar territory :yes:

BREAKING NEWS - They are back!

This evening Ma and Pa returned to the White Rock nest! In a rush of 3 minutes before darkness this image was taken of Pa sitting in the tree of the nest. Ma was not far from him and within a few seconds both took off.

Welcome back Ma and Pa!!!!

Comment: Special thanks to Tina Docharty for calling me at home straight away as I just returned from work - she had been carefully monitoring the nest for the last days and discovered them there tonight.
