Rita, I get the feeling Dusk is up in the nest tree at the top. Hearing eaglet chatter and Dawn seems pretty content. So thinking Dusk is up there somewhere.

Oh Jean, thanks so much for sharing and to David who made the trip to the tree. Wonderful to see Dawn and Dusk from a different perspective. They are awesome!

10:36am...........Sandy, if you want a break I can stay until 11:30am.........but will need to go after that. Let me know otherwise I'll just watch which is fine.

You are welcome Karen and Rita..............and good morning to you both as well! Our tree looks different from the ground...........you can see the bare branches on the left side of the photo............these are common perches for our eaglets.......but not branches that are in good shape.........they may have to go at some point. But the other side of the tree has lots of healthy looking foliage.
