Jan 14, 10:01 AM jd_AEF (Moderator): 4 am and all is well...winds seem to have calmed now so it feels even more peaceful as Samson and his new Female are sleeping.

Jan 14, 11:00 AM jd_AEF (Moderator): 4:58 am Lots of vocals and discussion between Samson and his new Female as they talk about the night they've had

05h05 only one eagle insight, the zoomer is searching the second one
I think Samson is out of view but not sure

gretchen_AEF (Admin): MONDAY Tuck-In: Hmm
. . .not much to report tonight! Viewing from behind the nest at 5pm Samson was perched and a Female Eagle from a few weeks ago, A2, came in for a landing on the Wallenda branch. Samson didn't seem to give a mighty welcome, but she never posed a problem. She soon flew and Samson later flew. They weren't seen in the Hamlet, but the eagles of late have been arriving at odd hours. The street lights in the area must guide them. Each day delivers a different scenario. Stay tuned! SED
