i take Otto for walks along the waterfront of the  Niner Nest territory.
They were perched far over to the left, from the cam.
Looks to me that the female is on the left.
She looks like the Eagle i spotted in the Tree across the road from me, here.

This pair don*t at all look familiar to me, the way Mum & Dad do.





A gorgeous pair, nonetheless.

Booni!  so sorry for the loss of that beautiful perch tree.  Has it done much damage to your lovely garden?  I have many happy memories of watching the ravens in that tree.  I can't imagine how different it must look now - it will change the patterns of light and shade, surely?  What a shock that must have been for you!

So sad about the perch tree. Sure hope that all is well with your garden and that you get things all fixed up.

booni, huge loss to have the perch tree down! I remember seeing a merlin and band-tailed pigeon in that tree when I visited you. The tree was a welcome perch for a diversity of birds- your photos are wonderful.

Is there much damage to your fence and garden?  Will you leave the fallen part of the tree alone? or ...

In the photos of the Niner pair - the male (on the right) has a Dad-ish look about him - wonder if (how) they are related.

Booni   I sure feel your loss of your perch tree. I especially remember your video of the raven pair. Beginnings and endings can be tough.

Gosh Booni what a loss for you and the niner pair.  Hope it didn't do a lot of damage and your diversity of bird life finds other nesting and perching areas nearby.

So, the only damage to my garden was the back corner of the fencing, which the Tree is lying across & on top of.
From my house, i can*t even see it.
It is really wet back there, & the trunk is huge, so i*m not sure how they*ll rescue my fence from underneath.
It is the neighbours* Tree, & they probably will remove it for firewood.
If they don*t, i don*t mind it lying there, just as long as they repair the fence, which they say they will do.
It turns out the Tree was rotten inside, all the way down to where it broke!
Who knew?
wooohoooo!

Booni, I am sad for you about your tree falling, but it sounds like it stood for a very long time. Hugs for the changes to your yard.

I'm pretty sure this is the Niner pair, the same pair Booni photographed on December 6.

I took this photo from the water. The nest tree is almost directly inland from this perch, which is often occupied when I pass by.

It is amazing how the aspect changes the appearance so easily. No wonder we get confused on the cam  :really
