I posted before I saw all your pictures, Lisa.  Great that you got them and now everyone can examine.

Thanks for the post, Lisa.  So it wasn't my eyes. The eagle on the right in your picture looks bigger than the one that may be DM2, so it's a female? Can anyone explain?
Since I'm here I want to acknowledge thanks to Lori for restoring my avatar (twice). She is so kind! Thank you, Lori! :D

nan - Just my opinion only, and I may be totally wrong, but yes I am guessing that is another female.

I agree with you on all counts, Lisa.  This is all so interesting!

Glad to read others who think something (?) is going on.  Didn't see mom in all of that capture.

Just when you thought things could not get more befuddling DM2 shows up with another eagle deemed NOT to be Mom. Is he a scamp or showing a passing interloper what a kingdom he possesses? Missing the comfort of devoted Dad during these curious times. I remain betwixt and between when it comes to DM2. Perhaps I need to trust the eagles :)

Just looking on rewind. No, (in my uneducated opinion),those two eagles are new visitors, doesn't look like DM2, similar maybe. Hopefully we'll be able to get an iris look-see.

I was comparing some old screenshots I took of DM2 in 2020 to the ones below of our visitor who I think looks like DM2, and the look is very similar.

Looks like it's time for another "As the nest turns" update! It's highly unlikely that this other pair will stay.... Mom & dm2 will chase them away since it's their territory. Their sole focus is protecting their eggs & eaglets over the next few months, until they fledge & disperse. Trust the eagles!
