The maps, etc. you posted were amazing, T40. Thanks!
Nice to see you Philjo56France. Beautiful pics of the SA! Thanks for sharing.

HM was on her favorite early morning perch, then a sub-adult visitor in the same place.  Happy Monday to all.

STL, I believe that twig is directly over the stream - they likely fish from it

T40 - Thanks for the video from tulsa. 

STL - Great pics.

shep - I believe you are correct about that twig, cause when I was at ATF, HM & HD were perched there and it looked to be above the creek.

From about 6:00 to 7:00 this morning, HD and HM in the area of the Y, perching, preening, calling.  Also a couple of very nice fly-arounds and landings.  Thanks to the cam ops for the great views!

I thot Mom n Dad were gonna mate this morning, they are very frenly.  They didnt do the actual mating thing tho.  Yet.

From RRP
August 20 at 5 PM CT, RRP will be turning off the cams for the season to get ready to do repairs and upgrades for next season during a time when the eagles are less likely to be near the nests.

One pic of HD with a wing feather about to fall out.  HD and HM spent lots of time together on the Y, early then again around 10AM.  What a beautiful pair they are.  It's more of a chummy time than a mating time.
