Lisa and Tig, love your early morning pics of Mom and DM2.  Special view of her flying at the Retention Pond.

One of them, Mom, I think, spent the night up high on the Skywalk. On rewind, that eagle flew away and one landed on the dead maple quickly after, looks like Mom to me.  DM2's head is very white and very flat. Good to see him at N2B with fish. Maybe that means he will be happy to return to this nest next season!

A few more pics of Mom, as she is still on M2 this morning.  She was up, and then shifted down to the lower branch.

Great pics, STL

It was Mom that spent the night on the SW last night.  I was so happy to see her still there when I woke this morning. 

I too, am hoping they are missing the area and N2B, but I won't get my hopes up till I see sticks and corn husks arrive next season!  ;D

I couldn't tell if it was Mom or DM2, but I am leaning towards Mom.  She sat in the bluff's for a while this afternoon before taking off, and what looked like joining another eagle above soaring (two black spots in the sky).

Early morning pics - A birdy was sitting in the tree behind the leaves over by the horse pasture.  It looked like DM2 to me. EDIT: Per tulsa's video...this is Mom and not DM2!
