3:46 pm: Valor 1 lands on the nest with a long stick, quickly followed by Valor 2. They both quickly got to work with nestorations.

It's a great event to get outside and enjoy nature. I find it very exciting no matter how many times I see bald eagles.

Time for a little guard duty.

3:50 pm: V2 is the first to leave.
2019-12-03 (179).png
Followed by V1 (he's preparing for take off in this pic).

The Trio together had one final visit to the nest from 4:47 pm to 4:56 pm. It was cute. Valor 1 ended up on the upper branch. I could be wrong, but I think Valor 2 was stating his intentions to mate with Starr, until she got all kissy face with him. This video is by nighteagle007 & used with permission.

8:03 pm Joan, thank you so much for getting those observations for today with our Trio eagles. Especially love seeing them in the late afternoon coming in to take care of nest business. Appreciate it so much!

Good morning, Philippe, Joan, Sue and all Trio lovers. Oh it looks to be a beautiful day at the Trio nest! Again, Philippe, thanks for checking in during the nighttime hours and Joan, appreciate the posts of yesterday's visits to the nest by the Trio.

From the Stewards FB page with permission about a trip to the Refuge:
Mom and I went to see the Trio over the holiday weekend. There are a lot of eagles flying around but it's no doubt when you see them around the nest. It seemed they were in "protect the nest" mode because whenever an outsider would fly in the vicinity of the nest all 3 would start to call as if to say STAY AWAY!!
Note: we knew there were visitors around the nest tree as there was much protection of food brought in. In the videos mentioned, could hear the Trio eagles calling out.

7:28 am - I think this was Valor 1 that was in. He didn’t do much but just sit there and look around. I did see a few adults fly by but no one else ever came to the nest. Valor 1 seemed like he was waiting for coming but after no one came he flew off.

7:47 am- I think this is Valor 1 again that comes in. He may have brought a stick but hard to tell with this morning lighting.

7:57 am - Someone is back again....but this looks more like Starr to me (I could be wrong though). Comes in at a weird angle from the right but then lands over on the left. Appeared to have brought on a stick.

8:02 am - Starr headed up to the attic and was watching around. She turned and started vocalizing before flying off.

8:12 am - 8:26 am - another visit. This looks like Valor 1 again and now I’m wondering if it’s been him every time this morning. Hard for me to feel confident on my ID’g as I’m viewing from my small phone screen. If anyone has been watching and can see better to ID please do so.

This time like earlier, Valor 1 just sat around keeping an eye on things. He did focus a few time on something out across the water but I never saw anyone flying around out there.

Good Morning, Sue! I was just looking at your posts & examined your pictures. Except for the last visit, I agree with you IDs of Valor 1 & Starr, by eyes, tail, neckline, & size. Except the last one I'm not sure of. It is the tail area that is throwing me off.

Also, I just saw a video of another visit (the last visit of the day) by the Trio on the nest late yesterday afternoon by nighteagle007. I am going to put the link to it at the end of my last post from yesterday, so it will be in order.
It's a great event to get outside and enjoy nature. I find it very exciting no matter how many times I see bald eagles.

Thanks for your input on the ID's for this morning's visits. It's so hard when you can't see them on a large screen. And thanks for posting the additional visit from last night!

I've been recording off and on since I had posted about the last visit at 8:26 am and I don't think anyone else has visited, but I may have missed a little bit during that time.

Hi Sandy! I was recording and will upload that video shortly. All three of our Trio were on the nest during the last 30 minutes or so.

3:05 pm - here's the first s'cap of when our Trio began to come into the nest....Love seeing two of them coming in at the same time....one has a clump of nesting material....at least that's what I think that is....I haven't gone through the recording so still need to do that and ID our eagles.

After reviewing the video I am pretty sure that was Valor 2 that came in with the clump of nesting material, and Valor 1 came in from the top left at the same time.
Here is Valor 2 working on a stick
2019-12-04 16_53_59-Greenshot.jpg
And they both finally look up so we can see their front neckline....Valor 1 on the left, Valor 2 on the right

I forgot to mention that I had been recording most of the afternoon and had not seen anyone come to the nest between 8:26 am and 3:05 pm. Of course I could have missed some time so if anyone had seen a visit during that time please feel free to post about it.
