The Norths are back at the nest. Weather more moderate today, so other birds are enjoying the creek -- crows and Canada geese.  Rewind to just light for up to 7 deer in the woods on the far side of the creek.

Thanks to the cam ops for staying on the job all this busy day at the North nest area! The Norths took advantage of the warmer weather to do some washing up.

MrN had a muskrat (I think from dark fur, dark meat, hairless tail) for lunch on a Love Branch. He flew to the creek for a bath then spent the afternoon preening in the Scary Tree (also, I think).  There was an oblivious opossum walking at the deadfall under the nest just after MrN finished lunch; lucky possum!

DNF came to the nest mid-afternoon, poked around and called but nothing doing. She went to meet MrN, then also had a bath in the creek. She spent the rest of the afternoon preening with MrN.

Last batch of pics for today.  The possum and the baths are better on the rewind.

Stunning pics today, STL, especially the profiles of Mr. N! Loved  all of them. Thank you.

Thanks, these eagles are such a joy to watch!  Thanks to the cam ops who make pics possible.   :D

Nestorations all morning by DNF and fishing by MrN, but he's not sharing and she doesn't seem to be asking.

Glad you enjoy the pics.  I think of the eagle close-ups as facial recognition!

Visiting eagles around the creek mid-afternoon, then a hawk in one of the tall trees south of the nest, then the Norths on the nest.  Eagle twittering sounds in the background.

The visiting eagles in STL's pic (top pic in last comment) both took baths--near each other but not together--and a mink (I think) was watching and then ran down the bank and into the water and swam away.  Here's a video from GABearhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmI8t5UB6co

Here's a really cool video of Mr. N catching that fish that he ate on the Love Tree.  It has slo mo of the dive and catch.  Very cool.  From Eagle Camhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IB2w80JJrcg
