6:10 am in rollback, Ma continuing to feed. Dusk takes a piece of the rabbit to the side of the nest to eat. Then Ma begins to trill.

Sandy, hope not but thinking maybe UME might be close and Ma is telling him to stay away from the nest with the rabbit for food. But not sure. Back later...

6:40 am - Ma calling out again. I wonder if she is just telling the UME to stay away because there is food on the nest.

I watched as Dawn and Dusk were pecking each other and the eaglet on the outer edge of the nest tried to move away and the branch she/he was standing on moved.
Not a very stable area of the nest.
Great to see one of the eaglets branched.

7:01 am - there is someone out on the first pole, appears to be an adult. And we still have UME up in the nest tree, and Ma on the nest. So who is this out on the first pole?

7:49 am - UME flew off the tree branch.....I looked out by the first pole but he did not go that way to scare off the other adult. I also looked at the Delta Port pole and the Center tower/pole, but he was not there.
