Thank you for the photos. So nice to come home to! :heart :ty

Mum was holding her foot tucked up against her belly.
Here she is holding the left foot out & clenching it.
i am noticing now that the foot is stained red.

They had a good recent feed.  :biggrin3. Mom's crop is full, but her chest isn't as pouffed as Dad's. He must have porked out at the Salmon runs.  :eceek

So good to see them, well fed and we presume content. Thank you  :heart

Here you can see Mum has fluffed out her belly feathers in order to tuck her left foot against her belly.
i don*t see the foot, & how the heck did all those white feathers get there?  :puzzled2

Re; the white feathers, they are seen in a closeup of the Decorah eagles. I was wondering the same thing!  :eceek

Dad did a poop & Mum started to trill!
i caught the tail end of the cachunk & trill in this video.
i*m not sure what Mum saw, but she*d had her head cocked to the sky just before this.

Hey, look at Mum's under tail area.  In the video you posted of Mum trilling.The shorter white feathers. Maybe this is what we saw in the other picture at her feet and the Decorah eagle?

i could hear trilling through the trees from what i guessed would be the Peters*s Tree, so i went to investigate.
Sure enough, there were Mum & Dad.
