wave Thanks for the welcome - and the instructions on posting photos.
I think it's so cool that people from California and Texas are so interested in what's happening here in the Charlotte, NC area.

Looking forward to the sun coming up so that I can get back to watching Derek and Savannah! It looks like the wintry weather that was originally predicted for this weekend might be missing us - it's dry at my house this morning.

Keep those screen captures - and great dialogue - coming!

Good morning, Smile

7:17 a.m. EST,
Savannah's been calling-out and keeping an eye on Derek; maybe she wants to take her early morning break.

2 -6 Images from 4:40pm

Posting a bit late. Had to stop and bathe my dog. She had turned her self into a dripping mud pie!

There are six images in this sequence of nest duty exchange. I am coming to the conclusion that Derek has learned if he picks up a stick, Savannah will move out immediately so he can take over.

Oh for Pete's sake, he's doing it again

Welcome, LATARTAL - it's great to hear from someone who's a member of the CRC! Left thumb up Many of us have just discovered this cam, and are only now beginning to learn all that the Carolina Raptor Center does.

Great pictures, CAL and BET - I hadn't noticed that Savannah gets out of the way when Derek grabs a stick! Grin

Had a major project that I had to complete today so did not have much time to watch the cams nor capture images. Did get a couple though

Derek arrives and picks up a stick

Savannah gets up and leaves, giving Derek what can only be called a dirty look

Derek is not the only eagle to use a stick to get his/her mate off the nest. I have noted Mom Hornby (Hornby Eagle cam, near Vancouver BC) in previous years using a stick to urge Dad Hornby off the nest when he was reluctant to turn over the duty. Her sticks were a bit smaller. Sometimes she would drop the stick on Dad's back other times prod him in the side.
