Good afternoon, everyone - and thanks for your report and the weather, Bev!

2:32 pm
Sur just landed on the nest - he immediately adjusted a beakful of nesting material, and I'm not sure if he brought it, or had just been thinking it needed to be in a slightly different spot! :love:
20191007_003.jpg

I did see the upper tail as he arrived, which is why I think Sur - and the eyes also look right.


2:36 pm
And he's gone! I think the grass is new.

Added -
Most of the grass was there - I just looked back. But he did bring some.

Back with a stick.

Showing off upper tail.

And here comes Res!
20191007_007.jpg

She may have brought a small stick - and definitely had some thoughts where some things should go!

A few more trips in and out with sticks - happy to see them working on the nest!
20191007_008.jpg

A bigger stick!
20191007_009.jpg

And I need to step away from the computer - hopefully this will remain up on the dvr so others can watch!


3:44 pm
One of them is still there - maybe Res?
20191007_010.jpg

And it could be Sur - he's a big eagle, just not as big as Res. :love:


3:52 pm
Remaining eagle flew off - looked more like Sur, but still not sure.

And I'm out for dinner and probably the evening.

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for starting our day, nightowl!

Well, that was interesting - when I used the usual link to get the weather, I got an access denied message. When I opened the Weather Network home page and searched for weather in Surrey BC - I got access denied. But when I googled weather in Surrey BC, the usual site opened. Strange. Anyway - here's the weather.
20191008_001.jpg

I checked back on the dvr and one of the adults visited a little after 7 am - I think Sur. He moved a couple of pieces of fluff and briefly checked the nest cup area (I didn't get a s'cap of that), but mostly stood around. It looked like his neckline.
20191008_003.jpg

He stayed until just after the cam went to color around 7:21 am.
20191008_002.jpg

I didn't get a screenshot of his fly out, but it looked as if there were spots on the upper tail, another indicator of Sur.


North cam only went back to around 5 pm (and skipped a lot during the night); I didn't see a dusk visit last night, or any additional visits this morning.

Hi folks! I just took a quick look back on the dvr and found this image :love:
20191008_004.jpg

Looking back more slowly - one of them arrived about 10:40 am - not sure which. The second one arrived at 10:58 am. I'm thinking Sur first, then Res. Very windy, but they did some work on the nest.
20191008_005.jpg

Both moving sticks around at 11:05 am. One left at 11:07 - I think Sur (based on apparent size) though I couldn't see dark tail spots. Res left at 11:12. Someone back at 11:19 with a stick - I think Sur.

And if my ID is right, he's the one who spent some time in the nest bowl, before flying off at 11:46.

This is him with his stick - unfortunately not easy to see, but it was a big one.
20191008_006.jpg

Dinner time here - good night, everyone!

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for the weather and the early report, Bev!

One of the adults landed on the nest at 6:57 and I think the second one landed a couple of minutes later (cam was very pixelated, and I was watching on my iPad).

Here are a couple of screenshots
20191009_002.jpg
20191009_003.jpg

One of them - I think Res - flew off at 7:05; the other one stayed, looking around, until 7:15, then flew off.

Here's one of Sur(?) in color, shortly before he left.
20191009_005.jpg

And this is annoying - I was going to get a screenshot from the South cam - and it skipped the visit on the dvr. It's funny - the picture before you click play is recent - and nice and clear.
20191009_001.jpg

But even on HD, the streaming image doesn't look as good.
20191009_006.jpg

Though perhaps it's also pixelating - :chin: I just rebooted North - maybe I'll see if a reboot will help South.

Hmm - I checked South dvr before logging in and didn't find any recorded visits (I'd also checked North and didn't see anything) - but did find these amazing colors at 6:30 pm yesterday.
20191009_007.jpg

Well, maybe it's my connection. Here's the new pre-play screenshot, from 3 minutes ago.
20191009_008.jpg

And this is the live cam - and the trees on the left look blurry, even on high def.
20191009_009.jpg

Ah well - both cams are rebooted and streaming smoothly, in case we get another visit.

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for the weather, Bev!

Something interesting - the dvr on my iPad didn't seem to go back before sunrise this morning - but my computer is going back to last night, and there was a visit by both adults around 7 pm which I'm watching now - will post a couple of pictures in a minute. They did a bit of beaking, and one of them tried out the nest cup. Then the other one moved into the nest cup area. I'm still having trouble telling them apart at times, especially when the cam is in grayscale rather than color. They were there about 6 minutes. I didn't see any other visits, though the North dvr jumped from 5:15 am to 7:15 am (and upon reflection, it may have been around 7:15 am before I checked my iPad - and I had forgotten to close the embedded cam on my computer last night - thought I was coming back, but got distracted).

I think it is Res on the right, and testing the nest cup.

Continuing....

Res on the nest
20191010_004.jpg

Res preparing to leave while Sur checks the nest (he didn't actually snuggle in like Res did, just stood there)
20191010_005.jpg

Res departing - there's a tiny bit of dark feathers at the top, but I think less than Sur has.
20191010_006.jpg

Sorry for the extra picture - Sur departing.
20191010_007.jpg

And it's lunch time here - back in a while.

Good morning, everyone! Thanks for the weather and the early report, Bev!

I've been watching since around 5:30, and didn't see any visits. It's now almost 8 am.

It looks like a lovely morning, and I think the leaves are really turning now - fun to watch.

Thanks, Bev and gemini!

12:45 pm
Someone just landed - I think Sur. He immediately found a stick to move.
20191011_002.jpg

Actually, I just watched the playback, and I think he brought it. He sort of dropped it as he landed, then moved it, but it wasn't there before.
20191011_003.jpg

He looked around a bit and flew off at 12:48 pm.


12:51 pm
Back again with another stick.
20191011_004.jpg

I saw his upper tail briefly both times he landed, which is why I think this is Sur.


1:02 pm
He's still there, just standing on the nest and looking around. I need to step away for a bit - will check back when I can.

1:57 pm Sur just stood and looked around until he finally left at 1:07 pm. I don't think I have ever seen any eagles before these two, do as much standing around and just looking as they do.
