Hi Mountain-gal!  Every attempt is made to make Hotspots of significant events, like feeding, etc., but the archives have not been great of late - sometimes the action just isn't recorded, so it gets frustrating trying to make a Hotspot.  However, if you check out the Observation thread HERE you will see a summary of each day with clickable links to all the significant Hotspots that were made that day.  :ecsmile

When Phoenix flies out, I'm going to go through the hotspots from beginning to end.  Will do my heart good, I'm going to miss him (her?) so much.  I will never look at an eagle in quite the same way again.  Phoenix is magical, he has absolutely captured my heart  :heart

Hello Tigerlady105,

I hope you will allow me to make my first experiment in making a post in the forum. This is my first time in the forum and I have a lot to learn about it.

I certainly endorse the message you are sending to all readers.

This is short to see if i was successful in posting.

Best regards to you and many thanks.

Zor

Just tuning in, catching up with hotspots from the day.  Did Phoe really spend the entire day up on the cam box??  Oh, the things she must have seen!!  And wow, she was so graceful both getting up there and then jumping down into the nest.  Amazing the change from her attempt just a couple days ago.

Video:  Eaglet Sets Cam-sitting PR

video includes an exclusive interview:

Eagle Weekly: Say, that was some record! Were you scared being up so high?
Phoenix: no
Eagle Weekly: Is it true you went up at 5:37 AM and came down at 7:12 PM?
Phoenix: close enough
Eagle Weekly: How do you feel after that incredible PR?
Phoenix: hungry
Eagle Weekly: Folks have been asking, are you a he-eagle or a she-eagle. The public is dying to know!
Phoenix: (yawns)
Eagle Weekly: What will you do next? Jump up to the WA cam? The top of the tree? The Sidney nest? What will it be?
Phoenix: Get something to eat

I was watching P still snuggled down on the right, but looking around, when she flapped a few times at 5:50 and hopped on the right side of the outer branches of the nest.  Then she moved over under the camera range, so the nest looks empty.  I think I just heard her make that "gobbling" sound.  Maybe breakfast will soon fly in.
