I saw the eagle to the left on WA fly off directly to nest. So there should only be one eagle on WA now

I could be wrong, but I thought this one was different from the recent/current young male, more white spots on the back and darker markings on top of head...seemed more like the eagle from August...

Maybe young male is the same as intruder from August - between molt and feather growth white spots are fore covered? I suppose there is no way to know for sure (unless we see both here at same time). :dunno:

she works on the nest, he moves in closer
6:13pm - Mom nips at him, several times, he cowers, waiting
this is impressive in action - Mom making strong statement to young male!

Amy , way back when all this mornings flying around started 10:27am I thought maybe it was Dad with Mom on the small tree left from PN! Can you check my post there and see if that is young one or Dad with Mom?
