Always good to take a second, and enlarged, look at the pics.

About the soarers, thanks Ginger for the info about vultures migrating. I didn't know that. So eagles then.

And what I thought might be broken feather is not; it's definitely the end of a limb, easy to see on the enlarged view. Thanks to Matisse for this info.

The sub-adult this morning (10AM or so) was eating something on the perch. Two crows came to harrass, and I got a fair pic of one of them.  Isn't it grand to have the rewind feature?

A beautiful SA was on the maple and flew over the retention pond to try some fishing.  It did not look like it was successful, as I don't see any fish in its talons.  - Thank you cam ops  :)

Lisa, the sub-a has a following of crows! Guess they know that this bird eats in the branches and might drop some leftovers for them.  Crows are really smart.

DM2 to the nest with a small amount of nesting material.  He moved some sticks around, and took off in the direction of the retention pond.

Just joining the bandwagon here, thinking I had an exclusive scoop! Hahaha! Why, oh why, do eagles tease us like this?! :-*
