]Hi, both eagles are back at 1:32 pm. Both were sitting on nest. One left. Lost the picture with both of them. Is it the female in the nest or is it the male. How do you tell the diffrence?:!:

Thanks for the support everyone. I finally did the photo thing in practise area. How do you identify Mum and Dad. Thx everyone.


Good job. I think females have a little bit of a rounded head. Males are more sleek. But sometimes it's still hard to tell. My guess, it's mom but don't hold me too it!Grin

Wouldn't the first's'cap need to be changed from .bmp to .jpeg to work properly? the 2nd .jpeg should work just fine with the "file" tags.



HI Terry, Bmp's have always worked; it's just the large png's that won't post.

10:35a - Mom's home! She's sitting and looking around rocking in the wind. I don't know how long she's been there as I didn't hear any calls. I glaced over at the screen and there she was! I just love seeing her.



She looks good, well restedSmile Just noticed there's a white feather to the right of her.
Is it a Eagle feather or from another bird?

Not that I know a lot about these guys, but I believe this is mom. Dad was in the nest a few minutes ago, and the feather wasn't there, so I think it's his. When he left, mom came in, and I think it's her because she looks a lot bigger than dad that was there just before. I love that they're back! I missed them! Smile

10:52a - Mom is still sitting and looking.
Look at the SIZE of the feather!

10:53a - Dang! Missed the shot of Mom flying out the back of the nest (W/A) down
and to the right toward the Bay.

HI XtremeId'ing the two isn't always easy. Mom has a broader head and thicker beak. She is also larger than
Dad who has a much sleeker head. When you've watched them for awhile, you'll begin to see the differences in them.

HI eiguoc - Nice to see you.

The feather right to the bird is most likely to be a eagle feather. Compare it to the stick it is huge. There is a link of a bald eagle feather which looked excatly the same: http://www.sacredearth-sacredart.com/ha ... nd-02.html.
