i was hearing one Ninelet loud & clear, especially one day when they thought they were being delivered food!
& then it went totally quiet & i began to worry.
Then two evenings ago, i heard a Ninelet again!
Yesterday, i am pretty sure i saw them flying over my street.

i*ve been concerned about the Niner whom we found covered in blood during the HIP Trip.
But i*ve had no luck spotting them til yesterday.
i was outside & heard the Ninelet calling, then looked up & an adult was flying over, going from Niner territory into the webcam territory!
Not sure who that was, so i went out to scan all our perch Trees, but found no Eagles there.
i DID find both Niners in their water side perch Tree however.
Whoever it was that was covered in blood, has cleaned up a lot, & i don*t see any injuries there.
The Ninelet is still calling from the Nest Tree, so i made a mistake when i said they had fledged already, above.
That Tree is so hard to ob.
i keep looking for the Ninelet when i hear them, but there are too many Trees in the way to see anything.

Yesterday evening, i am still hearing a Ninelet on or near the Nest Tree.
Haven*t managed to get my eye on where that one is, as there are too many Trees in the way.

I paddled past this territory yesterday and the day before, and each time I went by there was an adult eagle on one of the perch trees. I heard an eaglet pretty constantly further on, and saw it once, between this territory and Nest 7, so I'm not sure if this is the Niner or an eaglet from the Syzygy nest, which is further inland.

Here is a photo of the adult in this territory, August 10.
This tree is near the water, maybe a hundred metres from Grassy Point. I have never spotted it from the cam; possibly it is obscured by another tree.
The eagle would be hidden by the trunk as seen from the cam. This seems to be the favourite spot on this particular tree.
August 10, 4:14 pm



On the water near that tree were a few Bonaparte's Gulls, fishing.

4:18



This is where I saw my first California Gull of the season. There were many more on Collishaw Point, newly arrived from wherever they nest. (I just asked Mr. Sibley and he said inland: mostly in the Canadian and northern US prairies but also in the mountains or interior plateaus of Washington and Oregon.)
The California Gulls are easy to tell from the other large gulls by their yellow legs and long wings that stick out well past the tail; the adults have a black and a red spot on the bill.

Yesterday i was still hearing the Ninelet on the Nest Tree, only this time, i actually got my eye on the little sneaker!
When i went back with my camera, gone again.
So this one is at least branching, i am not sure if they have fledged yet!

On my return trip, still on August 10...
Another eagle on another one of the regular perches, at what I've been thinking is the western edge of the territory.

August 10, 5:52 pm



And closer to Grassy Point there is still someone perched where I saw them on the way out.
5:58


Then on August 18 and 19, I could hear screeps from my house, coming from Niner territory. When I look at the map, and draw a line in the direction from which I heard the calls, it takes me right to the nest. That's one loud eaglet.

I could simply repost the second photo from my last post to describe what I saw at sunset yesterday. Same tree, same branch... Same eagle? Possibly.

Just now I biked through the neigbourhood. No eagle perched on that particular tree. But as I approached the nest, I heard some screeps... And I found the Ninelet, still perched on a branch right by the nest!

Got some photos though the light was bad... Will post them when I get a chance.

Here's the clearest photo I got of the Ninelet this morning. He is on one of the support branches of the nest.

i, too, lucked out, & finally spotted the Ninelet PLUS had my camera on me, & some decent light to boot.
Looks like this Eaglet is on the same branch as in wren*s foto.
This is quite late for an Eaglet to still be here!
i am glad that wren is still spotting one of the adults in the neighbourhood.
i am also glad that the very full crop has gone down by the next morning, as you can see in wren*s foto.
