Hi all! Just peeking in for updates. Doesn't look like much work is happening on the nest. :luck: for eggs and a happy season. What do you all think at this point?

Good Morning H Mills , Yolande , Heather, Baita, Misha, Philjo and everyone!

Hi Misha and nice to see you here .. this is a new pair we have at this nest and we will have to wait and see.. having said that this nest doesn't usually have eggs until the first week in April so they still have lots of time to get the nest ready !

I'm noticing the very prominent black feathers in the tail. And no black head feathers...

Moved to the rail and was poking around - perhaps looking for nestovers?

There was something to munch on, because the eagle then feaked it's beak on the rails...and spent a lot of time just looking around and listening..

It perched there, looking and listening - then flew off at 7:42am. The eagle didn't actually go into the nest...while it was looking for food morsels, it stayed on the rails...

The visitor seemed quite relaxed, but vigilant... There is always something interesting going on here...! :yes:

Hi again Bev and Baita...

I took another look at your scaps of yesterday's eagle visit, Bev, and like you, didn't see any black tail feathers. If it did have some, they weren't as prominent as the black in the tail of the eagle that visited the nest this morning. Lots of black there! I don't think it was the same eagle..... but, JMO.

BB later today..... :bye 1:
