These birds are so pretty. Stop finding new stuff for me to watch! I saw the date stamp, and I'm like, "Hey, this isn't live! This is from June." And THEN I realized, "Oh, other countries list the DAY first THEN the month." Are we the only country that does month 1st then day?

I have so many open tabs on my phone for all these different nests. Victor's home nest at Frasier Pt is quiet. Catalina West End is devoid of fledglings, but Momma (?) has shown up at the nest site the last 2 days and stayed there for an hour or so each time (looking for her babies?). Yesterday she ate lunch there by herself. Catalina Two Harbors had visits at both on- and off-nest sites yesterday. Very squawky. And Decorah north kids are still around and amusing and so loud....

Also, does anyone else think "feathered pantaloons" when they see the birds' legs?

Laura G.--- I've always thought of fuzzy sweat pants, but "feathered pantaloons" sound so much better. :mihihi:

Despite the variety of date formats used around world, the US is the only country to insist on using mm-dd-yyyy.

Thanks Laura G on the Victor update. I am loving all the different nests.
Lazy Parrot, I have been watching our white-bellied sea eagles.
Since they are in Australia, I think we should call them leg feathers " bloomers down under" (groan)
Glad you got your internet back. Missed your morning posts.

:tea: Good Morning Everyone.
Looks so dark at the Sidney nest even around noon. We are so accustomed to year-round bright sunny days here in Florida, that the contrast is notable. Remember seasons reversed "down under".

:sigh: Other nests interesting but missing our eagles, esp. E20 and his antics. New season coming, but will not get really interesting until juveniles are out and about, esp. at the pond. At least I hope they like the pond as much and E19 and 20.

:wave: Hi Sumac. Tried to see if your spotted eagle had barbs on tongue. Alas, need more light in mouth. If you get an opportunity to get a better look inside one of their mouths, it would be interesting. Haven't been able to find any info on web that is specific to their tongues.

Great video, Sunnybird. It was the sequel with music.

The original Rumble at the Pond sans musique https://youtu.be/97ALw4CoLck occurred the previous year between E12 aka The Pond Princess who attacked even H & M if they ventured onto her beach. The word was plain as day: Don't Go Near The Water!! No eagles were hurt in the making of that video either, incredible as that may seem. :)

Hot and humid with pop up showers here in NE Ohio. A root beer float sounds good. :yes:
Not sure about putting toes in ice water though. :no:

After eating bald eagle puts his talons in water and gets a drink. Maybe he/she wiggled his/her toes. ;)

:wave: Lazy Parrot! I had to check my s'caps that day- found M15 ....and Harriet too in the pond oak.
Not sure about the elusive eagle spirit, might need Grosbeak to look with his eagle eyes. :roll:

5/19/22 I believe this is M15, but look to the far right to see Harriet hidden.

but that didn't happen.

:wave: Hi Sumac. I finally saw eagle to right in oak tree. Thanks.
Still haven't found any info on sea eagle tongue barbs---maybe they don't have them. However, if you ever get an opportunity to observe please let everyone know.
Look at that "blob" of a mother sea eagle at night. If I hadn't looked at a lot of eagle pics, would never know what that is.

Thanks, LP, but that ain't it. The Eagle Spirit tree is in the cove. Your s'cap shows H or M perched in the Pond Oak with the Leaning Palm in the foreground. The Eagle Spirit tree is well back in the cove, at least as far back as the string of lights. The tree is similar to the Office Oak and on the tree's trunk at the juncture of a large limb (similar to the "overhang") is the image of an adult eagle head and neck, just as clear as a portrait.

I've spent quite a lot of time looking at several seasons' forum to no avail. I must have seen it on the live pond cam.

I do so appreciate everyone keeping an eagle eye out for it, and so I have this little memento for you.

Lazy Parrot- meet Arlie! Arlie is a lesser spotted eagle. This was from 2013.
I couldn't find any info on the lesser spotted eagle's tongue, but as I expected they do have tongue barbs.
Arlie is a perfect model. I also attached some info about Arlie and his migration pattern his first year.
