We've been getting some closeups for the last few minutes. The first one below is 5:55 pm, and I can only make out the white head and tail of the eagle still in the nest bowl area five minutes later - it does get dark fast!

They pulled the cam back to the usual picture, and as it got completely dark, I think one was on the higher perch, and the other was still in the nest. The pic below is from 6:03 pm, and I could see them for a minute or so longer.

I've been watching for a couple of hours, and both have been spending time in and around the nest. I do love watching them - and am really enjoying the streaming video. This picture is from 12:50, and is about what was happening when I started typing a couple of minutes ago.

Now one (Derek?) is in the nest doing some fine tuning, while the other is on the edge flapping. I'm guessing one of the other eagles who share their space is coming a bit too close, though I can't see anything from this perspective.

After I took that picture, Derek left the nest and trotted off to the left to investigate, while Savannah remains perched on the edge of the nest structure.

They seem to be having a little chat at the side of the nest. Maybe they like the new nest as much as I do. They have done a lot of work and the nest looks great. Now we need an egg or two.....

Around 5:52, as it was beginning to get dark, one of them moved to the low perch, then up to the higher perch a couple of minutes later. The other wandered over to the nestbowl and gave it a final check, then moved up to the lower perch. And that's where they were at 6 pm when I lost sight of their white heads. love
