A little later in the day, & this is from the back side of the Nest.
i could hear an Eagle making unhappy calls, but could not see them.
Then there was THIS Eagle in a bit of a strange spot on the Nest Tree, the Runway Branch!
You can see the stump to the left & the right edge of the Nest.

A tiny blurry video, but you can hear the calls that were being made, & they weren*t made by this Eagle.

A bit later in the day, the Sun is out!, the weather keeps changing, now we have blue sky.
i got a heads up that there was an Eagle in The His & Hers Tree.

october 10 2017 15:35 - Eagle in The His & Hers Tree













i got out my tripod & moved onto the grass of Grassy Point.
i think there had been a feeding event out on the water just past the Point.
There were lots of Birds out there & this Eagle was watching them.
Before i could get a foto from the new vantage point, the Eagle flew off to the right.
i drove around but didn*t spot any Eagles anywhere.
i believe as i was driving away from Grassy Point though, i heard VERY hoarse female calls, but i never spotted this Eagle.
The sounds were coming from near the Nest?

A bit later again, now it is getting dark, & it is raining again.
i am told that a hoarse Eagle is calling from Gregg*s Tree, but when i arrive, i don*t see one there.
i get out & walk around & then spot THIS Eagle landing at the tippy top of The Babysitting Tree, making a hoarse call as she lands.
i find a nice roof to hide out under to keep my camera dry.

There is something red in the left corner of the beak/commissure - blood or a cut?

i played with some HDR-High Dynamic Range, in the Backlighting menu of my camera.
Here is the HDR version of the last foto.
You can tell the HDR fotos by the blue stipply background.
Sometimes they are better, sometimes not.

Did a driveby on my way home & found these two Eagles in Fosters* Fir.
The one perched lower down is Em, i believe, & she often had a hangdog posture & was making plaintive cries.
Here she is hangdog.

The upper Eagle is clenching their right foot to relax it while Em calls.
 


Sweet Em is not looking happy...

How is the nest and nest tree holding up as far as can be told from below? It has been used for over 20 years, wonder if Dad and Em need to start a new nest .

emc, the Nest is looking good!
You can see it well in some of the stuff i am posting from today.

Today i went looking for the Eagles on my way home & could sure hear Em crying but didn*t know where she was.
Then i spotted an Eagle on the wide angle cam box & realized she was on the close up cam box.
From the water side the Sun was behind the Nest so i went to a spot i can go that is to the left of the Nest as you look out towards the water.

Now we*re behind the Nest, looking from the road, photographing through the tiny hole in the Tree branches.

This video is not sharp but i posted it because of how Em is looking up, watching/studying the Eagle on the wide angle cam box.
