05:10 DT in the nest, looking around. She rises and resettles facing 6 oclock
Image
05:25 DT rises and refluffs the nest, then lays back down facing the right
Image
05:33 DT rises and bends and stretches the kinks out then lays back down facing 3 oclock
Image
Image
Image
05:34 Dad moves into view then hops to another branch in the background, far right. DT watches
05:36 Night cam turned off. Dad's white feathers standing out
05:36:47 Dad flies off then reappears in view less than 30 seconds later then almost a minute later he's gone again


VIDEO CLIP OF DAD IN THE BACKGROUND ..... JUST CLICK
Image

05:49 DT ducks down as dad flies in. Looks like he's carrying some nest material in his left talon. Both eagles do nestorations a few seconds later

[b]05:50
DT tries to kiss dad. He pulls slightly back, she goes in for the bite and comes away with one of dad's feathers. Love the look on dad's face

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

Image

05:51 DT moves to the front and pokes at the nest while dad makes his way to the left side. He picks up a feather and drops it. DT bending forward so she can see further through the trees. Both eagles looking out and watching the surround air space
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
05:53 DT moves to the right side and adjusts the sticks. Dad turns toward the right seconds later and begins digging through the nest grass then stops and looks around
05:54 He crosses the nest, looks up then hops on the 9 oclock branch. DT turns to watch him. He flies off seconds later. Reese pulls the cam back then moves back in closer on the nest. Dad long gone. Dt preens a little then looks out watching for dad
05:56 She moves to the back of the nest and continues searching. She hops out on the love branch seconds later, looks around then flies off toward the statuary vista area


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

05:58 Morning sun rise only showing on a small part of the nest tree now as the suns position is changed
Image
05:59 DT lands on the love branch from above, looks around then drops down into the nest with a pine bough in her beak. She walks around the nest with it and finally places it in front of the 1 oclock branch then looks out
Image
Image
Image
06:00 DT steps on the right nest wall and continues looking. Seconds later she walks to the back, looks around then flies off again toward the statuary vista area
06:08 DT returns again landing on the love branch with a small stick in her beak. Hard to see but a magnifying glass works wonders :D She bends forward then cam freezes for a couple of seconds. Active again the stick is gone, she must have dropped it. DT looks around
Image
06:10 Morning preen time
06:13 Reese zooms in on DT. The sun starting to put it's light on her almost as a spotlight. After preening, she looks around again
Image
Image
Image
06:14 You can see how many tail feathers DT has lost as she does a little more preening then back to looking around
Image
Image
06:17 Reese moves in closer on DT. I love the light color outline around their feathers
Image
Image
06:18 DT flies off. Reese pulls the cam back
06:24 DT returns with another pine bough. She is really taking ownership of the nest along with dad as she is bringing in more material now. Dads young mate is growing up and becoming very responsible
Image
06:25 She drops down into the nest and just looks around, leaving the pine bough where she landed in the nest. Reese adjust the ca lighting
06:26 Reese moves cam in closer as DT searching the area

06:28 Reese moves in closer on DT. She's sticking at the front pretty good so more eye candy
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
06:32 The sun shines brighter on DT making her the star that she is. Okay, I know ... corney.
Image
06:32:13 As the seconds tick down, the suns bright light overpowers the view of DT. Reese adjust the lighting again
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
06:33 Reese moves cam in a little closer. I can't believe the eye candy....I know....too much but I can't help myself....out of control. By this time next season, she will not look the same...she'll be full grown and beside, she's a real beauty
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
05:36 DT moves toward the left. Reese pulls the cam back. DT moves to the front of the nest
Image
08:00 Nest still empty. Eagle out enjoying their day
10:15 Still an empty nest
13:35 Still an empty nest
14:14 Heading out for a while to enjoy another sunny day....have to enjoy them when we can. See you later
17:24 Looks like the wind isn't quite as bad now...that's good but the nest is still empty
18:50 I haven't seen the eagles since this morning. Has anyone seen them on the cam since then?
20:33 DT lands in the nest and just realized that I left the darn cursor on cam so it got recorded too...duh. DT does a little nest cleaning then looking around searching
Image
20:35 Reese moves the cam in closer. DT hops out on the love branch and preens. Definitely missing a few tail feathers. Getting darker so cam not as clear
Image
Image
20:38 Night cam turned on as DT turns to face the right. She moves a little further out on the love branch
Image
20:39 She hops down into the nest and moves into brooding like position just chilling out
Image
20:40 DT rises and moves to the nest front then hops out on the front branch stopping for a few seconds before flying off
Image
21:15 Cam dark, no eagles in sight, shutting down for the night to watch Nik Wallenda cross Niagara Falls. Have a good night everyone
