Good Morning Eagle Fans.

Awoke this morning to an empty nest.
Image

06:38 Dad arrives at nest does some nestorizing
Image
Image
Image

He lays down in nest there are some down feathers popping through on wing and back
Image

We get some great zoom, Zoomer is on the controls, and see that Dad gas a little schmutz on his head and his beak
Image
Image
Image

07:00 Dad leaves the nest exit stage left
Image
Image
Image

Zoomer pans and NBG is beautiful and serene
Image
Image

As alway here is a link to all s'caps for the day

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
[b]07:58 Dad movs to love branch and leaves leaves nest[/b]
Image
Image
Image
09:29 Dad returns to nest,looks like he's going to leave but turns aroud and back to the nest - we get some zooms - a little nestorizing, looks around
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Shakes himself off
Image
And leaves nest at 09:34
Image
Image
Image

#4 came flying into nest yelling her head off Just Click
Image

Image
She's up to the love branch and a bit fluffed now - looks like she's drying off
Image
Dad arrives 10:31
Image
#4 comes down to greet dad
Image
Image
A little smooch
Image
#4 head to the love branch doing a lot of preening
Image
Image
Image
Image
Dad follows shortly after
Image
Dad then joins #4 on the Love Branch
Image
Image
Dad has on his mind intentions of mating - #4 has a different idea and says no and turns and throws Dad offImage
Image
Image
#4 moves to a further branch and you can see the down coming through on her back
Image
Image
10:43 And they are off #4 leaving first dad second later
Image
Image
You can see dads tail in the distance.
Image

Nest remains empty.... until

12:28 Dad arrives and #4 overshoots the nest and misses - then comes to nest back door.

Male flew over my head (coming from Friendship Pond) near the boat basin as I arrived...I guess I just missed him bringing the stick in before 8am. I guess he was watching me from somewhere because after I left apparently he returned to the nest at 9:30am. :lol:

By the way...it's so foggy down there you can barely see the nest tree standing at the barriers. :shock: :o
