5:57 pm in rollback, Ma looks on as Trooper is in the evergreens. She certainly has a nice crop on her. I noticed too that both Trooper and Ma's feet were a little muddy.

6:32 pm can see one of them flying into the trees. And can see where they meet up together on a branch in the trees by the school. So Ma and Trooper are now tucked in for the night. Good to see them both working in the nest tonight. They spent a lot of time today watching their territory.

7:29 am looking at Ma's tail can see the notch. Also, noticed a black spot on her left tail. Wonder is this permanent?

7:36 am went back to the east cam when Ma flew. It looked like she was headed toward the Delta Port Pole. So Ma is at the Delta pole and Trooper at the first pole.

8:17 am well I got distracted by my Charlie dog and didn't notice Ma and Trooper flew from the poles. Looked like they may have seen some food and off they go within seconds of each other.

8:26 am looks like two eagles at the tower close to the far right tower. Could this be Ma and Trooper or the Tower eagles or even another eagle pair? I don't know.
