Back where I started... And finally I found the bird I had come looking for in the first place: a Spotted Sandpiper who has been spending his or her winters in this bay.
I had thought this one would be gone for sure, until a neighbour told me of a recent sighting.

Aha... But no longer alone:

The dedicated neighbour of this Nest reported to me that he is seeing one Eaglet on the Nest & invited me over to take fotos.
So we stopped by there today.
An adult flew over & landed nearby, just as we arrived.
You could hear one Eaglet calling LOUD & clear!
Never was able to spot one yet with my camera, however.

My turn to go visit this nest...
That eaglet sure was loud all right!

After a while he or she even consented to take a peek above the rim!
Preening here...

Hm... That's way too many back feathers for one bird, isn't it?
3:37



I spent a while trying to get better angles. At one point there was a food drop! It happened really fast, the parent snuck in from below on the far side of the nest and took off right away but I could clearly hear a duet of screeps!
And then that eaglet not eating...
And then someone else, obviously eating!
3:55


... and then backing to the rim for a poop shot...

Post-meal, the second eaglet shows itself again.

And then disappears again, behind a branch to the left, but the first one stays up, nicely visible.
