5:29 in rollback, Dawn certainly is making me nervous as Dawn is moving all about that branch.

6:00 am did a quick check of the typical towers, poles and evergreens and no eagles seen.

6: 09 am in rollback, well, I ID'd the youngsters in correctly. Dawn is the eaglet out on the end of the branch and Dusk is the eaglet closer to the nest.

Good Morning Sandy! I am not really up and ready for posting but just saw you zoom in on the lower eaglets tail and that looked like Dusk's tail, but would be nice if we could compare to the eaglet that is higher up. Just surprised that Dawn would be up that high. Just saw you posted the same conclusion.

Okay so this should have been a big ID marker for these two but maybe we couldn't see it clearly when they were just on the nest, but up on the branches you can clearly see that Dawn (on the right) has a rounded tail, and Dusk (on the left) has more of an open tail. Not sure how else to explain dusk's tail but it separates in the middle somewhat.

6:15 am in rollback, two different tails. Which tail belongs to which eaglet.
2018-06-30_8-18-01.jpg
Dusk's tail with two raggedy edges the one lower on the branch?
2018-06-30_8-18-23.jpg
Dawn's tail smoother?
2018-06-30_8-21-10.jpg
What do you think, Sue? Do I have this correct or backwards..yet again. Smiles

Yeah, Sue, but oh I am afraid to do a quick check the way Dawn is acting. All over that branch with wingers.

I know Sandy, I thought Dawn was going too! But then she just hung onto that little knob and then came down a bit. S/he is scaring me though.

6:31 am Ok, now a bit more calm.
2018-06-30_8-32-39.jpg
Sue, since early this morning, the eaglets have been over the top with their squees and moving around the nest and from branch to branch. Ma was at the evergreen early this morning, which attributes to the early morning squees and winger activity. I truly was thinking that earlier Dawn may just take off.
