It's ironic that last night before bed, as I always do, I checked out any new posts to this forum. I had the same thought...that very few people were posting this season, including me! I'm really not sure what my reasoning is but the explanations that Rainna and Mary F. provided make perfect sense. I am one of those regular viewers who tunes in a few times a day amidst my very time consuming job and life. Whatever is posted is of so much interest to me and continues to bring me closer to this eagle family, both the eagles and the humans who are devoted to this experience. I can't imagine not having this in my life at this point due to the experience and immense joy (albeit, sad at times) it has brought to me.
So. having said that, I have to believe that this forum has an increasingly large number of viewers due to the ever-growing popularity that both David Hancock and SWFEC have brought to the public about wildlife and eagles in general, and, in my biased opinion, Harriet and M15 in particular. It's my hope that the forum and viewers continue to grow and will be available to us forever. As I did last year, I intend to donate to both Hancock Wildlife and SWFEC to play my part in helping to keep this going. Thank you to all of you who contribute to this wonderful experience.

P.S. My first time to post this season so hopefully I'm doing this correctly!
Thank you Mary and jsheptwo for your kindness and thoughts on this topic. I agree with all that has been said by you and others.
Judy, there is no wrong way to post on here, (with in the forum rules), we certainly enjoy all who post about this beautiful Eagle Family!
As eaglets come and go in each season here, our hearts follow them, it's hard to say good bye to the past precious one's and that is what all those beautiful memories are for, not just for E9 but for the one's before E9, and especially for so many who have traveled with Harriet through the years that included Ozzie!
This is an emotional experience for us all and so wonderful to find many who share the same connection each one of us have.
Thanks for posting for the first time, it's great to share with you!
