I call it Squee Sunday because that’s about all we had today to tell us that there were eagles in the tree and the area. The panner did catch a few glimpses of them on the high perch and out at the far perching tree but except for a short time this afternoon we didn’t see any of them around. I think the ducks in the pond got more airtime than the eagles did today. Arky and Dakota did come to the nest late in the afternoon to rest up for more squeeing later in the evening.
The difference between last year and this year post fledge is quite marked. Last year it seemed that the nest was still the place to hang out, nap, eat and play. This year they took to the high branches early and have made them their main places to spend their days. Every nest is different every year and even though they have made it harder for us to keep track of them this year it is still fun to watch and speculate what is going on with them.
Hopefully tomorrow we will have some plans set for an end of the season chat party and what I will be doing here on the blog for the rest of what’s left of the season and beyond.
Sorry there are no vids from today (hard to have a highlight video when there were none!) 🙂
If you need some video to watch there is a highlight from last night of the cops shining their spotlights on the nest: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/50285051/highlight/529650
I hope your Sunday was every thing you wanted it to be and we’ll see you on the nest tomorrow!
