The sub-adult left at 5:36 after moving sticks around the nest.
To the consternation of two other eagles per their loud protestations, the SA returned at 8:19. It only stayed a minute.

It’s 9:00pm, very late here. As I was doing the stop and go review, I heard one or more vocals many times. Good night everybody! :offtobed: :zzz:

Here’s a link to the male’s visit and subsequent female chasing another female from 5:25 posted by LadyDeeagle55 on her YT channel. Thanks Dee!

Hi, Thank you for the detailed information. So, I am gathering none of the eagles is Aurora or can we not tell at this point? Have there been any ground reports from the property owners? :luck:

Thanks,

AA

Hi Aigle! We have no confirmation from cam observations or ground reports that Aurora is in the area. There’s certainly a lot of activity. I would love to know if the owners recognize any of the calls as Aurora’s. If you listen for a long time, you are sometimes able to discern different eagles by their calls. I hope she’s safe, wherever she is. She had a very difficult year.

Good morning Bev, Marianne, Androcat, Heather, LadyDeeagle, and Kenai. I hope everybody has a nice day. An eagle lands on the nest and a second one flies over it as the disputes continue. 9:18pm The flying eagle circled around twice and flew under the cam a total of three times in this encounter.

These are the two eagles involved. This is the first one to land in this instance

And this is the one that circled over and over until the first one left. This one has darker edged feathers.

The best thing to do is take a look at this excellent video from LadyDeeagle55 which captured the activity in real and slow motion. Thank you Dee!

At 5:58, an eagle arrived abruptly, perhaps after being chased, alerting and agitated

Saw this on FB today from Scarlett Bairbelle

The EagleCam of the City of Kenai is now live.
You will also find a video of a short visit of Aurora(maybe), it is too far away to tell.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=I7igBOj1c8M

I know the Cam is live bc we have been watching and who knows whether the female seen or heard is Aurora. :dunno:
