05:15 Empty nest, no eagle movement in the background, no sound either
Image
05:32 Night cam turned off
05:34 Dad lands on the nest, coming in from the front and pokes through the nest grass. He looks around then does a little more nest cleaning
Image
Image
Image
05:36 As DT lands on the right side branch a single down feather floats down past the nest. A visit by both today....yeah

Image

VIDEO CLIP OF DT LANDING & DOWN FEATHER FALLING ..... JUST CLICK
Image

05:37 DT stretches her wings then moves closer to the nest. Seconds later, she drops down into the nest and watches dad then looks out
Image
Image
05:39 Both eagles standing and watching the activity outside the nest
Image
05:40 A little nest cleaning going on but mostly just hanging out and looking. No closeups yet, Reese must not be watching the cam at this time
Image
Image
05:45 DT moves to the right and stands on the nest rim
Image
05:46 Dad walks toward the front and does a little more nest cleaning
05:47 DT turns around then walks in front of the 1 oclock branch, both eagles watching outside the nest
05:48 DT moves a little toward the left while dad moves toward the right....both still on look out duty
Image
05:49 Dad moves to the back of the nest followed by DT, standing side by side as they look over their home territory
Image
05:50 DT moves out on the love branch while dad moves a stick from in front of the 1 oclock branch to the back of the nest. Hard to see with cam so far out
Image
Image
05:52 DT flies off in the direction of the statuary vista while dad moves to the back and watches and waits to see if she returns
05:54 He moves back into the nesting area and does a little more nest fluffing and cleaning
06:00 As dad watches, the rising sun begins to glow on a few of the branches
Image
06:10 Dad continues his patient waiting, the sun orange glow lighting more of the nest tree
Image
06:14 Dad moves to the back, looks around then flies off in the same direction as DT's flight....statuary vista.

I STOPPED RECORDING SO I COULD GO OVER THE VIDEO AND GET CAPTURES AND CORRECT TIMELINE SO OF COURSE DT IMMEDIATELY LANDS ON THE LOWER LEFT BRANCH. sigh

06:15 DT returns in the picture and flies to the branch behind and slightly lower than the nest and looks around. She then moves over the right, playing hop, skip branches again. Argh!!!..cam timed out
06:17 She moves back into the nest


VIDEO CLIP OF DT PLAYING MUSICAL BRANCHES ..... JUST CLICK
Image

06:17 DT, after landing back in the nest, pretty much hangs out waiting and watching. Sure wish Reese had moved in closer on our eagle pair. We probably won't have many more opportunities to watch them on the cam
06:19 DT watching
Image
06:45 After hanging out at the back of the nest doing a little preening and mostly watching, DT turns and begins nest work in front of the 1 oclock branch and does stick work, rearranging and moving a few of the nest sticks. Too far to get decent captures, I'll use video


VIDEO CLIP OF DT'S STICK WORK ..... JUST CLICK
Image

06:51 After hanging out in front of the 1 o'clock branch, DT moves to the left side and continues watching
06:53 DT moves to the front wall, looks around then flies out the front after hanging out on the nest

AT LEAST WE GOT TO SEE THEM TODAY WHICH WAS AWESOME. MAYBE THEY'LL RETURN LATER

09:00 No more eagle visits
10:05 Shutting down for today...well, maybe until early evening or so. Sunday School picnic today then back at son's house...have a good day y'all

When we got there at 8 both eagles were around still. Female was in "mom's tree" and the male was along Statuary Vista. Later she moved to Statuary Vista in another tree where a pileated woodpecker was giving her a fit. Then she moved to the same tree where the male was.
