05:30 Dad arrives coming in from the first, Checks out the nest then looks around then begins nest clean then watching and waiting
Image
Image
05:33 Night cam turned off
05:36 Reese moves in closer and adjust cam lighting
Image
05:37 Dad lays down facing the left. He pulls at the nest grass and pine needles in front of him. Reese moves in closer
Image
Image
Image
05:41 Love the look in dad's eyes as DT lands next to him. She gets a little frisky, pulling at his feathers. He looks at her like, "What are you doing?". Reese pulls the cam back. DT won't leave dad alone, pulling at his wing feathers, he finally rises. Guess she just wanted him up and not resting.
Image


VIDEO CLIP OF DT PULLING AT DAD'S FEATHERS ..... JUST CLICK

05:41 - cont Some early morning eye candy of DT and dad. She kisses his beak then pulls his feathers. Love the looks he gives her
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
05:42 Looks like DT giving dad a word or two. He looks shell shocked. LOL
Image
Image
Image
05:42 A little reprieve...DT stops pulling on dad's feathers...for a few seconds then back at trying to get him up. Can't stand any more annoyance from DT, dad rises
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
05:42:38 Dad finally gives up and rises. DT, like a squeaky wheel, doesn't give up
Image
Image
Image
05:43 If DT won't let him relax, he'll do some nest work then by moving a pine cone over. DT nags him again....this must be her pms day. Dad finally lets her know he's had enough
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
05:43:13 Dad finally has enough of DT pulling his feathers and lets her know
Image
Image
05:43:21 Something catches their eye
Image
Image
05:43:49 DT moves to stand in front of the 1 oclock branch. Both eagles interested in looking around now
Image
05:44 Dad figures that as long as he's up, might have well do some nest cleaning and fluffing. DT moves to the back


VIDEO CLIP OF DAD DOING HIS WORK ..... JUST CLICK
Image

05:45 DT moves to the base of the love branch. Dad moves in front of the 1 oclock branch, work done, watching time
Image
Image
05:46 DT hops out on the love branch, dad continues looking around
Image
Image
Image
05:47 DT moves further out on the love branch
05:48 Reese pulls the cam back to show DT on the love branch. Dad does a little more nest work
Image
05:49 As dad takes a couple of steps toward the back, DT flies heading toward the back left side. Dad watches her leave. Seconds later, he steps on the back wall and watches downward
05:50 He walks to the right side and continues looking down. He moves further out on the nest rim, looks down again, the looks up and around then back down again. Something sure has his attention. Dad looks up again, looking right and left then flies off off straight ahead in the direction of the statuary vista
Image
Image
08:30 No eagle return since the early morning visit
10:25 Nest still empty. Voices heard on and off in the background but no eagles
11:21 Time to head out for a bit. Have a good afternoon everyone
15:00 Back home....for now. Nest empty. The wind seems to have picked up a little and changed directions but still a beautiful day
