Can't believe I lost the whole observations so far and having to start from scratch. This day is NOT starting out good

Temp: 65 degrees

Today:
Partly cloudy in the morning, then mostly cloudy. High of 81F. Breezy. Winds from the WNW at 10 to 20 mph.
Tonight:
Overcast. Low of 61F. Winds from the North at 5 to 15 mphCivil Twilight 5:15 AM EDT 8:51 PM EDT

05:15 Empty nest, sound of birds waking
05:21 Eagle suddenly in the background trees. It looks around, slowly making its way to the nest. Think it's dad
Image
05:23 Eagle lands on the love branch. Looks like dad. He drops down into the nest and begins checking it out but mostly looking around
Image
05:25 He begins to fluff the nest then lays down facing the right
Image
05:28 He stands, facing toward the front and crouches then stands back up as DT lands in the nest. Dad begins poking through the nest material again. DT watches but then starts her own nest cleaning while dad looks around
Image
Image
05:30 As both eagles are busy cleaning their home, something suddenly catches dads attention. He jumps to the right nest wall, wings spread out. DT quickly turns and opens her wings and stands near dad, both on alert.

Image

05:31 Sensing the danger has past, DT returns to her housework while dad continues to stand guard and look around
Image
05:32 After doing some cleaning and fluffing, DT lays down facing around 7 oclock
05:33 As dad turns and makes his way toward the back, night cam turned off and DT rises
05:34 DT pokes a little through the nest material while dad is looking out the back. He turns and begins nest fluffing while DT watches. Suddenly both look out then up. They must have heard or seen something again but they don't seen to be on high alert...more just looking


VIDEO CLIP OF ABOVE ACTION ..... JUST CLICK
Image

05:35 DT moves in front of the 1 oclock branch while dad goes toward the front, does a little more fluffing then stands and watches
05:36 DT hops out on the love branch
Image
Image
05:37 DT dives off as she heads in the direction of the statuary vista, dad stays at the nest front still looking around
05:39 DT returns coming in from the front again. Can't tell if she brought anything with her though, doesn't look like it. Dad begins poking through the nest grass again and DT picks at the nest stick on the right side
05:41 After moving around the nest, doing a bit of cleaning, dad stands on the right side, DT moves to the back, both look out and around. DT then hops back out on the love branch. She moves further out, turns on the branch a few times then makes her way back into the nest for a little nest fluff and eagle kisses on dad


VIDEO CLIP OF DT ON THE LOVE BRANCH ..... JUST CLICK
Image

05:45 DT moves back out on the love branch. Dad makes his way to the 1 oclock branch. DT moves over a couple of branches then slowly hops higher up until only her feet show, then she flies off towards the left and past the Renaissance Court
Image
Image
Image
05:47 Dad moves to the base of the love branch, looks around then walks across the nest to the right side and stands on the nest rim then he flies off
Image
05:49 DT returns with a fresh pine bough and looks for the right spot to place it. She then looks out waiting
05:56 She lays down facing the left but seconds later dad returns and she quickly rises. He might have brought back a stick. DT picks a little more at the nest then picks up a stick and turns toward dad. He grabs it and places it on the right side. DT picks it up and moves it closer toward the 1 oclock branch. A little more stick work then both eagles move around the nest looking out
Image
06:01 DT stands on the right side rim then a minute later she moves to back. Dad doing a little more nest poking then looks out. DT flies off toward the statuary vista
06:06 As dad moves closer to the 1 oclock branch, Reese adjust the cam lighting and zooms in closer
Image
Image
06:09 Almost as if dad can hear the cam zooming in closer, he turns to look at us...well, to face the front. ;) Reese zooms in closer. Eye candy
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
06:10 Dad moves out of cam view and when Reese adjust the cam lightness, nest empty and the sun glowing on the branch
Image
06:15 Another view of the empty nest as the early morning sun continues to rise
Image
07:45 No eagle return yet since dad left
08:40 Shutting down the cam for a while, installing new software and antivirus then running scan. Eagle probably won't show up for quite a while anyway
11:00 Not recording but still checking the cam every once in a while. Nest empty right now
15:00 Still no more eagle visits yet
20:24 Had to leave for several hours and then had to take my cat to the vet. Poor thing was attacked on our porch by a neighbors cat and did some pretty good damage. Anyway, nest still empty. Did they go to the nest after 15:00? If they did, can some let me know. Thanks
20:27 Night cam turned on
21:09 Still no visit tonight. Will hang on a for a little while longer then shut
22:00 No eagles...time to shut down for the night. See you tomorrow

Thanks DJ. I'm really liking the fact as of late the female is adding to the nest. First time for 2012 one of the females added material they actually got themselves. Makes me think she's catching on to how a nest works and what needs to be done other than just laying in it and moving things around. :)

I agree Duane. I think DT is turning into quite a lady and definitely an awesome partner for our male. She is a keeper
