Hello jwin36, nice to see you!

Yes this nest has a resident nest snatcher. I have posted pictures of the little mouse on previous pages and it's become rather endearing to see now. It comes and cleans up nest residue, in this light I personally named him Nibbles! He is a very stealthy mouse.

It's early am now and mom is awake and moving around a bit, I suspect she will be back to sleep in a few minutes. Hope it's a great day for our 3 little bobbleheads, and the bonking is minimal.

Thank you for the info. I am glad the nest has a vacuum cleaner named Nibbles. :bye 1:

Yesterday one of the eaglets ventured out of the nest bowl and this morning mom was moved over a bit to cover that little one up. This afternoon I see that one has ventured out of the nest bowl once again and this time is infront of mom/dad and she has covered it up with grasses! Someone just doesn't like to be crowded.

Good morning Sauces Island fans. All seems to be quiet this morning. Mom is awake and doing some house cleaning. No movement noted of the eaglets yet, but that is sure to change sooner rather then later.
Nibbles has not been seen yet and I'm curious to see how the mouse will be received now that we have little one's, but he sure does a good job with the clean up detail!

Will check in from time to time today and hopefully get some nice s'craps of the family. :)

Raindrops keep falling on my head!

I had a very nice picture of the eaglets under mom and poof falls a rain drop right in front of them...oh well
Happy to hear Nibbles is allowed to still be part of the clean up detail, the nest does need it!

Been a busy day, my youngest fur baby was fixed this morning and hubby took the day off and I did not know that was on the days agenda.
Hope to capture some s'craps of the wee little one's later.

Time for sleep and a quiet night. Take care everyone, especially our eagle family. Until tomorrow, be safe.

Watching an eagle watch a mouse in a nest at the top of a tree. Wow, not something everyone can say they did. Glad they are a little drier now. :D

Another weather aware day today as the winds are very strong this morning. Mom will do her best to keep those precious little ones under her and protected. Hopefully those winds will die down so the little ones can come out for a bit today. Otherwise all is quiet yet as morning has not yet broken.

Morning has broken and Ma just brought in a large amount of grasses in, the switch was made and seems that all nests are preparing for a weather event. Stocking the pantry and lots of grass I suspect will be the order of the day. Stay warm little one's your ma and pa know what to do!

Well this one didn't turn out the way I was hoping for, but you can kinda see both adults in the nest.

I did not see the exchange, and one of the eaglets is enjoying some breeze sneaking from under Ma.
