Apparently they have both been in over the last few days doing some nest fixing. bigsmile

Good afternoon!

12:13 pm
Eagle on the nest.



Doing a bit of nestoration.

12:27 pm
After a bit of work, the adult moved up to the Y branch. And it definitely is an adult, though the sky is light enough that it's almost impossible to see the white head or tail right now.



12:29 pm
Back down into the nest.

Judy, I'm not recording but have caps.  I'm adding what I have so far.
Yes, I agree.....I think this sub adult is too old to be Eden or Willow.I believe it is the adult doing all the fussing and I do believe there is a 3rd eagle out there.



Click for slideshow - sub adult leaves and comes back a couple times between 2:05 and 2:21

Thanks for all the pictures of today's multi-eagle visits, Sherri.  I have more description and less pictures - and will add a summary and perhaps a couple of additional screenshots later this evening.   bigsmile

Added:

I'm not sure when it started, but after the adult left at 1:05 pm, we were hearing the three sharp calls that fledglings sometimes make - and wondering if Willow (the 2013 eaglet) was around.

Then at 2:05 pm, an adult landed - perhaps Mom as it looked fairly rounded. And a few minutes later, what I'd consider a subadult landed on the Y branch - he or she had quite a lot of white feathers, though was clearly not a full adult. (Must admit I'm not sure where the dividing line is between "older juvie" and "younger sub-adult" - will have to check.)



The sub-adult flew in and out a couple of times. It appeared that it was the adult on the nest who was doing the calling we'd been hearing - though it was hard to tell who was making which sounds as they weren't always looking towards the camera.

At 2:24 pm, the sub-adult flew to a branch at the left, and the adult flapped to chase him/her off - and then someone - I think the sub-adult - tried to land several times and the adult kept chasing him/her off.

At 2:27 pm, the adult began to eat - which made me wonder if it was Mom or Dad - because it's more common for a male to bring food to a nest, and then wait for the female to come to claim it, than for a female to bring food in. Knowing that there was food on the nest did provide a reason for the younger eagle to be hanging around.

At 2:40 pm, a second adult flew into the nest, and the one on the nest immediately left. I'm looking forward to watching the video because it happened very quickly, and I don't know if it was Mom coming in and Dad knowing enough to not get between a hungry Mom and food - or if it was another eagle who was using the nest as a convenient place to have lunch (though if that was the case, I'd have thought she'd take the food as she fled).

At 2:42 pm, Dad arrived at the back of the nest. Mom looked up briefly and continued eating - which told me this was an established pair - and for convenience, I'm calling them Mom and Dad. It's hard to tell with the camera angle, but Dad looked thinner than the eagle that had been there earlier. But it's also possible that he was just looking smaller because we now had Mom to compare him with.

By 4:08 pm, the male had come and gone a few times, but the female stayed on the nest, so I knew there hasn't been another swap. The male left for the last time a little after 4 pm, and the female left around 4:05 pm, after about 80 minutes on the nest.

My favorite picture of the two of them, Mom in back and Dad in the nest:



I had computer issues and couldn't record the visits - but happily Windy60 got all the action - here are her videos - with a big Thanks!

March 14, 2014   

Very significant day today!  lollol

At least 5 matings have been observed today on the nest, the first having been around 06:23 in the morning at twilight and the 5th around 6:32pm. Mom has spent a lot of time on the nest today, building the sides of the nest, feeding and mating. We think we heard a 3rd eagle earlier today also.
