Michelle has spent most of the morning atop the bluff. Newman is incubating. An eagle passes over bluff.

You're Welcome Nora. It's hard to NOT get a pretty picture here at the bluff.

Thank you and it's my pleasure, Baz.  Our lady in the bluff looks pretty with the snow.

Michelle, Thursday morning. Something caused her to get a tad bit annoyed. She flew to nest box branch but Newman was too comfy on eggs. :)

Nice ones!

I had to laugh looking at the quick change.  Kind of cool when you can't see Newman unless you really look and the extra feet...........  ;)

Nora, I thought it was funny how Newman was hidden by Michelle, except for his beak and feet. ;)
Barges rollin thru.

Earlier, Michelle was on eggs, I heard prey exchange from box branch perch, Newman comes in. He's become quite the egg wrangler.
Newman was not happy with whomever was in their no fly zone.
Great camera work spots Newman.
