We had some perching above and a fly in to the side branch as well. I also spotted a sub adult around the 3 year old mark just south of the nest. I my drive by however that was all I saw. Tree videos are courtesy of Keith Byer.

Students are working on learning about poetry and writing some as well. We have learned about patterns in poetry. For example students were tasked with trying to write an ABAB poem where the first and the third lines rhyme, and the second and the fourth lines rhyme. They also were introduced to acrostic poems which do not need to rhyme. Here are a few student examples .
E agles eat dead elk.
A lways lives in a big nest.

Evening visit is courtesy of Keith Byer. Blair came in late tonight after not giving us one glimpse today.
Blair came in on the front branch. She kept calling when she landed. She perched there a long time and then she flew away. Then she came back twice with grasses. We have not seen deliveries since maybe February 17th. It has been a long time. Thunder was not around. We hope to see him soon too. Keith Byer produced the videos for us again.
An eagle actually made a tree visit this morning. It was short but at the same time it was nice, because we didn't see anything yesterday. It would be nice to know where they are going and what they are doing. We know many viewers have questions just like us. This video is brought to us by Keith Byer.
This morning I ventured to E4K land to get an idea of where either of our E's might travel after leaving the nest. This morning after Blair left, she did not go where I thought she would go. She traveled up the next valley and perched for a while. Of course while I went to check another location quick, she flew off. I think I found her and others too. They were all around a dead deer that was an apparent casualty of a vehicle on a coulee road. it was in a field and not too far off the road but a safe distance. Our eagles can see that direction very well, but would not be able to see the deer itself from the nest tree. In all, I saw 5 adults and two sub adults. After I left, Thunder flew ot the side branch. Of course Keith Byer has both visits this morning.
