Good news!
Yes, wait and see
The English language is, weird.
It can be understood through tough,
thorough,
thought though.

V2 ( Dusty )
Dec 8, 2022
V2 arrives to the nest waiting for Gabby and we get to see some really good closeups of his unique feather coloring! V2's feathers may or may not get lighter in the coming months or years. Some eagles will retain some darker colors throughout their life - some will take several more months or even a year or more to achieve their white feathers. It will be interesting to see how V2's look will be in the upcoming weeks and months if he sticks around

December 9, 2022
Gabby was gone all day Dec 9
She returned at dusk.
V2 / Dusty never came home last nite Dec 8-9

A 3rd eagle visitor stopped at the nest mid day.
A hawk perched awhile to groom itself

Dusty returned mid day to route the other raptors.

AWESOME JOINT RETURN & Mating Afterwards!!
V2 was watching for Gabby and he flies off to meet her!  We see them both flying back in together and vocalizing! V2 was very happy to have Gabby back home! Multiple cam views of the fly in (Cam 1,3 & 4). Nice views of both on the wallenda branch and then V2 vocalizes and flies to the nest. He returns all excited and he mates with Gabby for the 2nd time (on cam).  After waiting for Gabby all day, looks like V2 really missed her

The Dating Game
December 10, 2022
Evidently Gabby doesnt want a mate who wont spend the night.  Perhaps V2 / Dusty didnt like an owl knocking him off his perch as he slept.  So she decides to entertain other suitors til she finds one who suits her.   ;D

Eagle Village!
December 17, 2022  Saturday
Young eagles a-plenty just kept coming and coming.
Gabby spends all day away from nest.

3 Visiting eagles - my guess - are ages 2 or 3, 4 and 5 years old.
My guess is the 3 year old is female and the 4 year old is male.
2 of them arrived together aa if they're friends, one was chuckling, vocals
They act like a mated pair - but the 3 year old is too young - ???

Lady hawk video -
A Juvie (V5) & A Sub Adult (V4) Arrive in The Nest together
  V4 a sub adult flew in to the nest and was immediately followed by a juvie (V5). They had a brief interaction on the nest with the juvie chasing V4 out to the branch and then V4 took off.

V5 looks bigger than V4 - juvies are usually larger than the adults due to their longer flight feathers. But it could also be that V5 is a female with its larger size as well. There is no way to know the gender of this young eagle at this point. I believe V4 is a male due to its size, its behavior and its high pitch vocals. V4 will return later in the afternoon along with Gabby.

Gabby Wingslaps, Screams & Chases V4 Off
Dec 18, 2022  Lady hawk
The saga of the visitors continues into the evening with the return of the sub adult V4 (who was first seen for the first time today). Gabby flies in to the nest tree and V4 is hot on her tail! They both are vocal and V4 will land on the nest briefly before heading back to the branch. Gabby is not happy with V4 being here and she is making that known in her vocals. V4 is watchful no doubt seeing other eagles near by the nest tree.

A few minutes later, Gabby turns around on her branch and V4 attempts to join her but gets a sharp rebuke! Gabby screams and wingslaps V4 right off the branch! V4 will fly around and land back on its original perching spot. Then Gabby flies off and V4 takes off as well.
https://youtu.be/HjkEQkGRbvc

These 2 are a pair - friends - came TOGETHER 2 days in a row.  The male appears to be a 4 year old and the female appears to me to be barely age 3 and willing to mate.  Pretty mature for a barely 3 year old

Enter V6  Guardian
ABSOLUTE INANITY in the nest

December 19, 2022  Monday  Where do I begin?
This male V6 is AWESOME in every way - and patiently - sitting Guardian at the nest

Fight over the nest - V4 & V6
It's unbelievable how well they can fly and how agile they are. I think I have 5 or 6 SLOMO scenes where you can see very well that it is quite dangerous for both of them!
V6 has injury on his claws. He has won the fight

December 20, 2022
There've been a couple beautiful males.
I dont know what the problem is there.
The chatroom is claiming there've been 9 or 10 visitors - one was female juvie.

A male spent the night last night.
I think its V6 but chatroom says its V10

who knows


V10 Attempts To Return
V9 Waits For Gabby, Moss Deliveries & Roosting Overnight

We saw 2 visitors and  Gabby in her nest tree. Earlier the latest visitor, V10 came to the nest for a short stay and then departed. V10 decided to return and was seen incoming with his landing gear down but Gabby thwarted that move and chased him off. A few minutes later, V9 arrives back and he perched in the tree and was in and out.

Gabby flew in with two deliveries of moss and put it on the nest. This is a very encouraging sign as Gabby had not done any nestorations in the past week. I think she wanted V9 to drop down and help with the moss but he didn't. He flies off and so does Gabby.

Late in the afternoon, V9 returned and he waited for Gabby to come back but she never did. V9 went to the nest briefly and laid down but then went back to LOP.  V9 did a big ps in the nest before flying off. lol Gabby did finally return after dark and is roosting in the nest tree alone. What will tomorrow bring for Gabby and her suitors?

The male pooping in the nest is their claim of their territory.  At least 3 males have done this this year.
