Monday noon -- Zooey having a red-winged blackbird male for lunch.  She's perched on a narrow dead limb, defeathering.  See rewind or live.

Nice to see Zooey stl, thanks for posting! the darn owl was back again... 3 nights now??? wondering why the barking dogs is not being used or maybe they are???  I am happy Zooey is ok, and I think she is not too familiar with the owls.  I am grateful that the owls did not bother the nest this season.  Thank you RRP for helping with that.  ;) thank you for all of the wonderful updates & pics everyone.  I check on this cam everyday. :) take care.

I always assumed that the barking dogs audio was only played during the time Zooey and Newman were still on migration. When they are at GSB I don't know where they roost at night, but wouldn't it be risky to play the audio in case it scared them off?

I'll see if I can find out... the owls do like it there in the winter but do not want them to get comfortable.  It looks like a young one too. ?  I will find out from John or Amy when they aren't so busy  ;D  thanks Ginger!!!

Thanks, Lori.  I'll be interested to hear what RRP has to say about it.

Oh boy, huge riverboat passing by the GSB bluff and into the locks.  Very cool.  Wave everybody!

Shep, thanks for the riverboat ID!  Love the pic of the eagle with little birds surrounding.

Newman and Zooey had a back and forth flurry early this morning, from a favorite dead limb to the nest box. Might have been a moment when both were on the limb (no pic).  Zooey has the rosy cheeks!

Peregrines perched in a tree along the bluff, for an hour or so early this morning.
