By The Farm...Finally

Finally! It has been a while for whatever reason that I have seen one here. Just as I stopped filming, it took off and circled to the south. I went in circles and then flew north across the highway from the nest and caught the afternoon thermals are soared up, up, and away.


Juvie Today and Adult Perched Nearby

First two videos by Keith Byer. We think it was the same young from the other day. It sure was showing how it could move sticks around and fluff up nesting material. 


Blair With A Late Day Visit

I have been seeing an eagle or two now for a few days but not near the nest. They have been about a mile and even further to the north. However, the perching is generally a mile away in a normal location on a hillside oak tree which overlooks the nest area. Today we got a glimpse of Blair thanks to one of our cam operators after Blair made vocals that she was in the tree. 


Juvie Visits

Keith Byer captured the visit this morning of a young eagle visiting. We have seen this before. It was interesting it brought something into the nest. 


Morning Visit!

Thank you, Keith Byer for the video this morning. 


April Goes Out Like A Lion

I know we usually talk about March coming and going Like a lion or a lamb. Today however, we need to change that to the month of April! Never be surprised when something happens at this nest. One eagle I am certain of is Blair as her vocals are apparent.



Young One Comes In Early


Sub Adult Gets Escorted Out

We don't have much action in the cottonwood. Today a sub adult came to the nest and then was on the side branch for some time. Finally, an adult came in to chase it away. 

Video was made by Keith Byer.



Eagle Nearby

I saw an eagle flying from the direction of the farm. Of course I was hoping it would stop at the nest or tree but it flew right past with a black bird pestering it. I followed it a good distance, and lost it one time. After locating it and observing, it appeared to be hunting. I left it finally not far from the nest as it flew back near the nest area but across the highway. It was flying with a turkey vulture at the end.


Nothing But Fly Offs and a Fly By

Sightings continue to be brief. Here are a couple fly offs from the last couple days and this morning an eagle flew by going towards the farm. It was gone by the time I got there. Keith Byer continues to give us the short glimpses of eagles here. 


Eagle Chases Off Raccoon

A raccoon took advantage of the nest that is not being used and thought it looked like a comfy bed. In fact, the raccoon was sleeping for some time. It would wake up and clean itself and then curl back up again. Suddenly, an eagle went swooping away from the tree towards the highway. Was it perched up in the tree above watching? Maybe. It came in several times and one time it came in from the highway side and put its feet down to attack. Shortly after, it landed on the front branch. It is nice to see the protection of the nest, but it still doesn't explain why we don't see them very often. They should be perching downstream or by the farm catching fish this time of year. Thank you, Keith Byer for making the video. 


Quiet Day Beside the Wind


Good Morning, Thunder!

Thunder doesn't make many visits, so when he does we take notice. You can see early in the video he appears to be flying from the north and towards the farm. He must have circled and flew in to the front branch shortly after that. When he leaves he showed us his dark spot on his tail feathers that helps us ID him. 



Hey, since we have ducks, let's change the name to Ducks4Kids! Just kidding, but aren't the wood ducks cute?


Blair's Wet Morning Visit

Killdeer Preparing for Nesting Season

After the visit this morning and then another fly up above and out of view of the cam, I drove up in hopes to get a look where they are going. That didn't play out so well. I didn't see any eagles, but saw a few hawks. I also witnessed a pair of Killdeer behind he nest preparing for their nesting season. They are fun to watch if you can keep track of them. Their camouflage is superb do when you take your eyes off them, it takes a bit to find them again.

This is an additional video after the den branch visit this morning. This video is by Keith Byer. 



Possible Thunder Sighting!

It has been a long time since we have seen Thunder leaving some speculation about what happened to him or where did he go. This morning it appeared that he came to the side branch and had prey. The eagle had not white, thin feather on the leg, and had dark around the eyes, and a more pronounced supraorbital ridge. It sure would have been nice to see the dark tail feather but I guess we will have to wait for that.

Thank you to Keith Byer for the video this morning.

Blair This Morning

It is that time when a nest has no eggs to make some changes. Friday, March 31st will be the last day for chat on the two-cam page. If you have watched chat or have been a chatter, please help me thank all our E4K moderators that have volunteered their time. We couldn’t do it without them. Sometime by morning the chat tab should be eliminated, but the SS or Social Tab will remain. We will continue to update as we see an eagle(s).
