Civil Twilight 5:14 AM EDT 8:56 PM EDT

05:10 Circle of doom going round and round, cam offline. Looks like we won't be seeing any eagles in the nest this morning. They'll be gone before cam is back online. Bummer
Image
09:00 Just checked and the cam is up...Yeah!. Looks like new pine needles have been brought to the nest giving it some color. A bit windy there today
Image
10:45 Heading out with hubby for a few hours. See you later
14:35 Home again..cam up and no eagles
18:25 Nest still empty. Lots of kid sounds and talking in the background
19:17 Flash of eagle's wing in the upper left side as eagle lands on the branches just in cam view. It's DT. Cam is pretty jerky right now. DT hops down into the nest then picks up the pine bough and moves it a bit toward the front then looks around
19:19 She pokes around the nest a little then drops into brood like position and preens and lays down
19:20 She rises and resettles laying back down facing the right

(19:24) Reese moves the cam in closer. Woohoo.....eye candy coming up
Image
Image
19:25 Reese adjust the color and focus. Thanks Reese
Image
Image
19:26 Reese pulls the cam back a little
Image
Image
19:26 Cam turned toward the left then making our way back to the DT
19:28 DT looks up checking out the sky above. She's quite comfortable laying in the nest, relaxing and waiting for dad. Sun forming a colorful rainbow on the cam glass
Image
19:31 Reese zooms back in closer again
Image
Image
Image
Image
19:32 A little preening..taking care of an itch on her back then looks around more. She stands a few seconds later. Reese pulls the cam back. DT does more preening
19:35 After doing a little nest fluffing, DT lays down facing 11 oclock
19:39 Reese moves cam in for a closer look. Hard to get crystal clear shots because of the windy conditions
Image
Image
19:44 Gust of wind blows DT's feathers up
Image


VIDEO CLIP OF DT'S FEATHERS BLOWING ..... JUST CLICK
Image

19:55 DT stands and preens the feathers on her chest
Image
19:57 Preening her back also then more preening
Image
19:59 DT looks around, not sure if something caught her attention or just the usual watching. Reese moves us in a bit closer
Image
20:01 She lays down facing 7 oclock
Image
20:02 DT pulls at the pine bough in front of her then tries moving it without getting up. She rises and moves it toward the left then lays back down facing the front, poking at the nest grass in front of her


VIDEO CLIP OF DT MOVING PINE BOUGH ..... JUST CLICK
Image

20:04 Moving in for closeups
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
20:07 Extreme and very personal close ups
Image
Image
Image

Image
Image
Image
20:11 Reese pulls the cam back some. DT still laying there peacefully
Image
20:17 Good look at DT's molting neck feathers
Image
Image
Image
20:20 Reese moves cam in closer again for more extreme closeups. Love how the eagles can close one nictitating membrane at a time, giving us a wink. Plus a better look at DT's molting neckline. Reese pulls the cam back after the great closeups
Image
Image
Image
20:25 DT rises, looks down at the nest, does a quick poke in the nest grass and resettles facing about 5:30. She is quite content to stay in the nest. SWEET. Between DT staying and so relaxed and Reese at the cam control, we're getting some amazing shots and looks at DT
Image
Image
20:26 DT looks up toward the love branch, dad drops down into the back of the nest. DT turns and looks at him. Almost a beaking then dad gets right down to business and begins nest cleaning
Image
Image
20:27 DT rises and does nest work while dad moves around the nest looking out keeping watch
20:30 Dad digs through the nest grass near the center
20:34 DT moves stick from the right to the left


VIDEO CLIP OF DAD COMING IN AND NESTORATIONS ..... JUST CLICK
Image

20:35 Dad hops out on the love branch, DT watches then returns to nest cleaning
20:36 She turns toward the right and lays down facing around 1 oclock. Dad flies off, DT immediately rises and watches him leave. She moves to the back of the nest then hops out on the love branch and does some preening
Image
20:42 Night cam turned on
Image
20:48 DT turns to face the right
20:49 She hops back down into the nest. She looks around then moves into brooding like position, relaxing in the nest facing the right
20:50 She lays down then rises again, readjusts and resettles facing around 3:30 - 4:00 oclock
Image
20:51 She rises again and turns more toward the front continuing her search around the area then hops back out on the love branch a minute later
21:01 IR turned on. DT still perched on the love branch facing the left. Looks like she's definitely staying home tonite
20:04 She begins her nighttime preening, getting ready for bed then just perches and rest
21:14 DT tucks her head under her wings, settling down at least for a while
21:16 Back awake, she looks around then re tucks her head again
22:13 IR turned off, DT still sleeping
22:37 Shutting cam down for the night. See you tomorrow
