Good Morning Fellow Eagles -

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and a Happy Passover.

Wonderfully sunny morning at NBG with Dad laying in his glory in the nest. We get some great zooms and makes me smile :D as I sit here sipping my tea.

07:26 Dad takes leave from the nest.
Image
Image

Reese pans garden and what a peaceful calming day for this holiday weekend.
Image
Image

We have an empty nest.
Image

13:24 Dad arrives at nest with lunch - nice fish a Gizzard Shad
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
13:44 Dad finishes fish and moves over towards love branch stand for a while looking around
Image
Image
Image
13:48 Dad up on Love Branch and there he sits......
Image
Image
Image
Image
Reese zooms out and dad sits on love branch going on 2 hours now....enjoying the beautiful gorgeous day at the gardens
Image
Image
Image

Puter froze so not sure when dad left love branch.....

18:24 DT arrives in nest but only stays a few minutes and she's off....
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

both came back, DT left, Dad hung around, and DT came back - both very vocal today - - Please check back. they've been busy tonight trying to keep up with images - sorry :lol:

19:19 Dad looking hearing something,all puffed feathers finally DT arrives at nest being very vocal and dad vocalizes back...... Both spent several minutes on nest together.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Short clip of vocalizing with Dad and DT - Just Click
Image

19:30 DT moves to love branch
Image
Image
Image
19:31 DT take leave.... Dad left standing on nest looking around. then leaves
Image
Image
Image

18:55 DT arrives on nest followed by dad - loud chattering - Just Click
Image

19:30 NEWS FLASH - #4 IS BACK - STAY TUNED FOR S'CAPS AND VIDEO..... SO FAR ALL IS CALM

OK General story - #4 and #3 on separate limbs, #4 in cam view - not #3 - all the while Dad is sitting in nest standing his ground. This went on for some time - #4 and #3 out of cam sight and Dad still in nest. Now day remains on Love Branch for night and he has his eyes peeled. Has not stopped looking around. Assumption is that #4 and #3 may be close by.


19:37 the arrival of #4 - as our drama of 2012 nest continues
Image
Image
Image
Image
Reese pans looking for DT, she is heard chattering but not seen and then finding dad in nest - defensive mode - all fluffed.
Image
19:57 #4 moves a branch closer to nest.Image
Image
Image

and dad is left alone again in the nest and he moves to love branch -
Image
Image
Image
Image

22:27 Reese zooming area check to see if #3 or #4 is in view of cam. Dad still sits on love branch, awake and alert, he has not budged other than turn around all night and his little head searching from side to side.

As always, here is a link to s'caps from today
