It's great that you caught Simba having a meal at the nest Maddy. The fly off you captured is beautiful.

2:43 pm Nothing but the wind is heard at the nest.

4:25 pm When the wind calms smaller birds can be heard. No eagle vocals.

4:49 pm I hear Simba loud and clear. Sounds like someone has food by his call.
4:52 pm Sirens heard and the coyotes are really howling up a storm.
4:53 pm Simba is heard again. He is distant.

6:33 pm Can hear Simba squeeing but he is really distant!
7:24 pm Crow or Raven flew by. No sounds of the eagles.

7:35 pm Simba just flew off and is calling from very nearby.

7:39 pm Simba is squeeing very loudly.
