Yes Phil, we are hoping for a successful nesting season!

I found 2 young eagles on Liberty's Island yesterday while walking my pups along the river trail!

These are the first young eagles I've seen in the Turtle Bay area this year!

One looks to be a 1st year eagle & the other looks like a 3rd year eagle with more white on it's head & body...

I found the 3.5-4 year old eagle near the Sundial Bridge on Monday & found the 1st year one on Liberty's Island again!

I'm so glad they are sticking around the Turtle Bay area!

The immature eagle caught a fish & was eating it on the rocks along the river! I got some pics of it catching the fish & a video of it eating the fish!

Here's the video...

The eagle was fairly far away from where I was standing, but it sure gave me a great view of it coming right toward me when it was catching it's fish!

I was standing on the Sundial Bridge which spans the Sacramento River, which worked out great!

Thanks Phil!

I'm so sorry to hear about Juliet :( I hope for a good outcome :luck:

I have seen the juvenile eagle the last 2 days on or near Liberty's Island! It sure seems to like that spot!

Here are a few videos, one from yesterday & one today where the juvie was eating a fish on a branch! Or at least attempting to eat a fish! :mihihi: Those fishies are slippery! :mihihi:

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

We have still been seeing the young eagles in the Turtle Bay area! I found one of them, the 3rd year eagle, feasting on a dead salmon yesterday! it was the same bird that snagged the trout from the river in the same area last week! They are all sure eating good, which makes me so happy! :D

My friend Ospreyman Jim found 3 sub adult eagles a little south of where I've been seeing the other young eagles along the river
He got a great video so you can see them for yourselves! They look like they may have found a dead salmon to eat too!

Oh Phil I was so sorry to hear about the loss of Baby NE20 at the NEFL nest :cry1:

I was pleasantly surprised to find Miss Liberty on top of the Christmas Tree this morning!

It really lifted my spirits and I hope it will do the same for you & all who loved this precious eaglet...

It was very windy & cold out there this morning! I was surprised that Liberty was able to hold on up there!!!

Her lift off was graceful & beautiful as ever! And, it seemed to happen in slow motion as she flew into the wind...

Liberty headed west toward the river & I wasn't able to track her down again, but enjoyed the brief but spectacular moments I had with her...

So glad you enjoyed those wide open wing shots Phil! She sure is a beauty that Liberty!

Saturday was a really active eagle day!!!

First I spotted this young eagle perched on the backside of the Turtle Bay Nest tree area...

Then, I spotted this immature eagle perched across from Liberty's Island, but it landed on Liberty's Island by the time I rode over closer!

Those 2 eagles did look close in age too? As I was taking photos of the eagle on Liberty's Island, I could still see the one perched on the backside of the nest tree area. So, I know there were 2 different eagles!

Here is the one that was on Liberty's Island...

All of a sudden, I looked over by the Turtle Bay nest & spotted an adult eagle!!!! It turned out to be Spirit!!!

The young eagle had flown off while I was looking at the one on Lib's Island, and then Spirit had flown in!

What a treat that was to see him perched close to the Turtle Bay nest!

I was able to catch his lift off too! It won't let me upload the first 2 shots because it says the file is too large, but here are 2 that would upload!
