Goodnight/morning everyone, bonjour Maddy, Rita, …!

Hi Maddy and thanks for all these beautiful pics

a video from yesterday, thanks to Lady Hawk

Big Bear Eagles ~ JACKIE & SHADOW ARE BACK! Nest Visit ~ Two Sticks & Morning Chortles! 8.31.19
Early this morning we hear both Jackie & Shadow chortles as they greet the new day. Then Jackie flies in to the nest for a short visit! She looks great and I did not see any thing in her beak from the side angle!

She departs and we hears branches breaking and see Shadow flying from the lower left hand corner from left to right at the 2:00 mark as he makes his way to the nest with a stick! In regular time and slo mo!
He happily places it & moves some sticks around before going to the front branch and flies off.

Shadow returns with a second stick at 6:06 and places it in the nest. He goes to the front limb and takes off in a beautiful departure! In regular time and slo mo! It is great to see them back at the nest again! Thank you for watching!

A video by Lady Hawk
Big Bear Eagles ~ SHADOW & JACKIE ARE HOME! Nest Work & Love Nips! ♥♥ 9.16.19
What a special treat tonight to see our favorite eagle couple back on the nest together! It is early in the season so this visit was unexpected! Shadow arrives first to the nest and then Jackie follows. Shadow is in top form moving sticks as only Shadow can do! :) There is some gentle beaking & love nips between them - all normal and part of their courtship & relationship building! They pick up Cookie's leg at 3:17 & Jackie moves it & we see the band at 3:42.

They continue to move nesting material around & engage in more beaking. Shadow will to to the front limb and leave at 14:15 and Jackie stays on the nest for a couple of minutes before departing in a beautiful swan dive off the front limb too! It was wonderful to see both of them on the nest tonight and I did not see any hook in Jackie's mouth. They should start with nestorations in the Fall. Thank you for watching!

Hi Philjo, Maddie, Rita and everyone. Thanks Lady Hawk for the great video of Jackie and Shadow on the nest. The new season is right around the corner and it looks like they are raring to get started. So excited. Thanks Philjo for posting the video and update.
