The English language is, weird.
It can be understood through tough,

Phyl, Great pic of one on the nest fussing with cornhusks and one in the background this morning.

Maybe there were two episodes on the rewind. To begin just before 8:00, two deer were near the nest tree while the Norths perched in creek trees. Then, in my rewind view, it was MrN on the nest while DNF broke off a stick from that background branch and flew it to the nest. MrN's eye bump is visible in the closeup view.  The eagles get busy and it's hard to follow all the action unless you stay watching for an hour or more -- which I seldom do!

About 10:00, a red squirrel had an acorn for its breakfast.  About 11:30, a belted kingfisher perched on the Brush Pile.

I do a lot of my watching in rewind but this morning I was watching live for quite awhile.

Mr. North was already perched on BPT when DNF first arrived at the nest at 7:14.  She then flew off to the Spit Tree and both she and Mr. N. (on BPT) remained perched for quite awhile.  DNF then flew off and landed on a tree to the right front of the nest tree.  Mr. N. then arrived at the nest and DNF broke off a stick and joined him.  She tests the nest bowl and then Mr. N. does some preening on the Ladder Branch.  DNF flies off first and then Mr. N.

Phyl -- BPT = Brush Pile Tree.  In STL's first pic today it's the tree on the far left.

There was a beautiful subadult perched on the Scary Tree this afternoon.  It arrived at about 3:27 p.m. and flew off at about 4:17 p.m. after Mr. North arrived and began vocalizing.

These are great!
Thanks for the translation of BPT.
I guess ST=Scary tree, that is if that's used.

Subadult in capture #2 blends in so well.

Phyl -- that's a nice pic of Mr. North and DNF from this morning.  Mr. N. was bringing some kind of food for DNF -- definitely not a fish but I couldn't tell what it was.  It looked gross!

At around 8:51 the cam op found an ermine running around on the ground.  They had a hard time following because it darted around so fast.  First time we've seen an ermine on this cam.

Hi Ginger! I couldn't tell what Mr. N had in his talons either. So glad you could tell it was some sort of food.
You and STL get the best snap shots!  Little white ermine  :-*  w/o checking I think they're a member of the weasel family.
Have read, somewhere(?) they're sort of mean in nature.   :-\
