Good Morning Eagle Friends.... And we begin another day.

Glad to see that Dad and DT were at the nest on DeeJays Live Obs as the nest was empty last night.

Just a side bit to what we saw earlier (8:30ish), just before Dad returned....Holly was watching Dad as he perched on a branch near the original nest tree ...a crow on each side harassing him. She was so excited to be able to get nice close shots, when he took off toward her, snagged a branch and flew right over her on his way back to the nest! Yes, she was awed and all she could say was "wow"! Duane naturally had to tease her ...it's what he does :lol:

Holly had another WOW moment indeed. Kinda cool standing in the background as the male grabbed the stick right over her and to see the look on her face as she turned to me and said "WOW!!" :D
