Thanks so much Eagle Eye and MaryF!
Denise from Caltrans wrote her final blog today, a great read for all who have followed this beautiful pair and their many offspring these past few years...
http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist2/eagles.htm

Denise is the Public Information Officer for Caltrans, who is now as in love with these eagles as the rest of us! I couldn't have written a happier ending to this story, which started out as a travesty and ended up as a triumph. When that cone was placed on their nest 3 years ago, I feared that we would never have the privilege of viewing this majestic pair again. Never in a million years could I have imagined that I would not only get to view them from the ground, but that I would also get to view them up close and personal via an eaglecam!!!

As we end another great season of eagle viewing, I want to send a great big thank you to Denise, and everyone at Caltrans, for listening, for caring, and for doing the right thing when it came to the eagles...

And to my friends at Hancock Wildlife, thanks for allowing me to share my love of these eagles with all of you, and thank you for all you do on behalf of eagles everywhere!!!

wave Well, I thought eaglewoman would have written by now about our little adventure and sightings this evening. But, I guess not. So here is a tease before she chimes in with some photos. We walked down to the family tree and we saw two eaglets; or so we thought. On further inspection through her scope, eaglewoman showed me that one of the eaglets was actually an immature with a white and brown mottled head! Sitting eagle A year, two, or three year old perhaps? It was in the next tree over from the eaglet. Neither was in a good position for any award winning photography, but I am sure eaglewoman will come through with something where you, too, can see that mottled white head. Can you say: INTRUDER? Or more likely, SIBLING, from a former hatch? Puzzled

Oh the shame So sorry Eagle Eye!!! I should have been posting my pics instead of swimming in the lake! How selfish of me!Titter

It was a pretty interesting sighting tonite, never a dull moment at this nest! As Eagle Eye explained, both birds were in a tough spot to photograph, but I got a few of the Immature that I think you can make out. (There is a bunch of cotton coming off of the Cottonwood Trees where they are sitting, so if you see some white, fluffy stuff that is what it is!)
Not much luck getting one of the eaglet, but we could clearly see that it was most likely one of this year's triplets.
As for the Immature, I'll post that one chart that helps distinguish ages.
