7:37 pm LIttle bird on the upper branch. I can't tell what it is due to the lighting. Do you know Maddy?

No problem Maddy. I couldn't tell either. We might not have them here.

7:50 Still hear Simba now and then. Sounds like something is walking below. Hear branches cracking.

Maddy it's pretty quiet at the nest. I'm going to log off a bit early. Hope you have a nice relaxing evening. :nite:

Good night Rita! :bye 1:
I've been watching the nest, but nothing was happening. Probably Simba is sleeping tonight next to the parents where they sleep.

I remember when i promised to Cookie just before he left, i will stay with Simba to support him, now it is Simba who is leaving us, but for the best… for a beautiful life with many adventures, many fishes/food and many and many little "Simbas"
a little bit :( but so happy for this family too… :rh:
Wish you the best journey Simba, you deserve it so much my Friend !
And Jackie and Shadow, you did a so great job ! :rh:

6:15 am Simba is very close and calling. Close enough to even be on the left branch.
6:23 am Simba just sneezed. He's been calling on and off. Really does sound like he is on the left branch.
6:40 am Simba just did a bit of flapping. Hopefully soon a zoomer will come on and check the left branch.
6:49 am Simba is still calling on and off. Haven't heard any adults.
6:52 am Heard flapping as if Simba was leaving. You can see something flying low to the right.
6:53 am Hear very distant adult calls.

Time for me to head out. Hope everyone has a great day.

5:38 pm Sounded like wings flapping, but no vocals. Might have just been the wind.
5:58 pm It's really windy at the nest. No vocals heard.
6:29 pm The wind is the only noise at the nest.
7:09 pm It's been very quiet at the nest. No eagles heard for quite a while now. Just some smaller birds and the wind.
7:19 pm Just heard wings flapping and it sounded like a very close landing. No vocals.
7:22 pm Wings flapping again sounded like someone flew off.
7:58 pm Can hear Simba calling now.
