I found both adults here on my visit June 4. Pa in his perch tree beside the nest tree. Ma in the nest. Both were looking intently in the same direction. I know not what they were seeing. No calling.

Visited the nest on Saturday (June 8th) and at first saw only the one adult in the perch tree near the nest but took some pictures of the nest hoping to see something there. It was a bit breezy so even though I saw some movement in the nest I wasn't sure if it was branches / greenery moving or ? After taking what seemed like a whole lot of pictures hoping to later zoom in on them and see if the movement was actually an eaglet / adult or just greenery, an eaglet appeared!

He/she made a brief partial appearance, then did some wing exercising before finally coming closer to the edge of the nest so that I could finally see who had been hiding in there all this time :-)

Thank you Sandra and Marg! Stopped by for a short visit yesterday and saw the youngster standing by the middle branch of the nest tree looking out towards one of the adults in the perch tree close by.

All was quiet when I stopped by the nest late this afternoon. Just junior hanging out and no adults in sight, they were probably off enjoying the break from all the rain today.

Great to see our baby Karen. Thank you! And for sharing that you got more rain! Hopefully the Coast is not as dry these days. :woohoo:
