EA, thanks for the heads-up.  Caught a few pics on rewind this morning.   It sure looks like Mom, and also after the eagle leaves you can hear someone land on N2B and it sounds like they are feaking their beak.




Many thanks to the awesome camera operator who caught this!

EA, good to 'see' you!  That does look like Mom - good catch!

Wasn't that a hoot?!  Well, Mom is royalty, after all.  ;)

With the sun setting, the feathers look like a rich velvet  :)

Lisa - there's definitely guyliner, but I'm hesitant to guess that it's beloved DM2 taking a break from N3 while Mom incubates & I can't spot a brood patch from the cam angles.  Great photos!

Buzbee - thanks for the tip!

The beak was what caught my eye & to my non-eagle eyes it didn't look like DM2's beak.

Did you see a little earlier (about 5:55ish) that he landed there and a bit later mom flew in and shoved him off the nest! It was great!! She hung around awhile. I'm pretty sure it was her.

Buzbee - I missed that...I will need to go rewind and find that!

TPA - I was thinking it might be DM2 at first, but the beak looks a lil different than DM2s.

No, I don't think that was DM2. Similar, but not him. He looks like our recent visitor.
I think that was around 5:55, around there anyway.

Yeah mom would not shove dm2 off nest like that. She would do that to an intruder. I thought at first it was dm2 but moms actions says no.
