Thank you wren!

It was hard to see Dad with this big female, blocking him in.
Her front neck white feathers really protruded out & hung down low.
Her crop is like a basketball.
Dad is to her left, barely visible.

Watch those neck/crop feathers, how they stick way out & down.
 

 

 


Dad manages to peek out finally.
 


She was nodding off up there!

Lovely Dad, doesn*t seem too perturbed, by this new arrival.
 


We can see Dad better now.

Listen to the female thumping around on the branch after her poop shot!

i think on this day there was another pair around?
Here is an Eagle we found in The Fork Tree!
Always hoping it will be Mum...

& some nice light has come back.

Usually they perch down in that tangle of branches & it is hard to see their head!
This is much better.

Her call at the end is like the rusty-gate sound of a youngster!
Her & Dad sound really nice together.
But notice how, twice, she steps towards him & he steps away!
Not sure if that means anything.

i made sure not to crop out this lovely perch Tree!
It is up Sollans Road, a ways from Hidden Beach & right on the border of Wiig territory.
Left neck part, like Dad.

Wonderful pics and videos Booni.
She sure is a big eagle. They are both very vocal.
Dad stepping back, maybe he is still hoping that mum will return? I'm still hoping but i don't think it is going to happen. I think she is looking after Phoenix. :mconfused :heart
