E get's very close to the water and then flies up and towards the left!
No duck...but the E was so close to the water that the water was rippling right
at the spot where E flew up and away from the water!
:woohoo:

There's just a little bump over the healed area now.

E11 Returns From Her Karate Class This Morning! :w00t:
.
A swift kick with her left foot into E10s side!...
42518 124844am e11 towards e10.JPG
And...another good kick with talons spread for more body contact...
42518 1248pm e11 footinto e10 UU.JPG
E11 has learned to make sure she gets in another good kick to the side
as she faces her opponent to shows who's in control of the situation!
:angry:
42518 1248pm e11 footinto e10 2UU.JPG
E11 was paying good attention during her karate class! Wonder if this was her first class... :chin:
E10 is okay... ;)

First move... get the bad eagle under her wing area...
:yes:

Second move... is to get the bad eagles head under her wing-pit... :thumlft:
42518 1248pm e10 over e11.JPG

and...simply leaves! :yes:
42518 1248pm e10 leaves e11 uu.JPG

1:15pm - M15 brings a fish to the nest where E10 and E11 were in the nest.
E11 and E10 rush to the nest edge making it impossible for M15 to land and he and E11 falls out of the nest.
E10 is at the right.
42418 111458pm overboard 1.JPG
E10 is able to stay on the nest and grabs the fish
42518 115pm ees a overbord3.JPG
E10 holds onto the fish (red dot) and takes it to the middle of the nest.
42518 115pm e11 holdsongetsfish.JPG
Scaps by Journi - SWFEC
E11 lands on branch below nest and M15 flies to the OCT.
Both are okay!
:yes:

NEST ACTIVITY CONTINUED- THURSDAY APRIL 26th

12:46am Eagle on upper branch, but vocals. Possibly Harriet.

1:17am lots of flapping (sounds like on the nest tree).

3:04am Vocals from Harriet in upper branch.

4:30am An eagle is perched on the treetop branch. The other juvie may be on a branch under the nest. Harriet and M15 are thought to be in the west pasture.

6:09am vocals begin from one of the E's. E is under the nest on the right side.

6:15 wskrsnwings is at the nest. I see H and one juvenile perched in the nest tree. And one juvenile perched on top of cam 2 tree.

6:28 E flies to CSPS from nest tree. Thinking E11

6:32 Juvenile in the cam 2 tree is not one of ours and is 3 to 4 years old. That must be why Harriet came to the tree during the night.

6:37am E11 leaves the CSPS flying after the visitor. Harriet flies off the tree and gives chase as well. E11 returns to the church snag and Harriet back to the upper perch
01.jpg
6:42am E11 flies from the church snag to the CSPS

6:47am Harriet vocal, crow pestering her.

7:06 an adult Eagle on the tall power pole, 7:10am no eagle there now.

7:10am E10 flies in from across the road and lands on the CSPS
