Good Morning Bev, thank you for the morning's views of Mom.....she looks so good! Love the great scaps showing her tail and also the ones as she gracefully leaves the nest.....
Good morning Berry nest friends!

I checked out the new view...angle is more from above, from other side of the nest.....oh, this will come in handy when we have chicklets...and will provide alternate views of the eggs when they come....yay!
Nest remains empty....Bev, with the amount of fluffy, white down on the nest, would you say that Mom is moulting a bit? Is this perhaps the "normal" time in the season that this occurs?

forum/viewtopic.php?topic=701023#701023


I found these and i hope it answers your question

Another point of view
Taken from here

http://www.hornbyeagles.com/eaglefaq.htm

Q. When do bald eagles moult?
A. They moult gradually from spring through autumn. They do not moult all their feathers each year; some of the feathers moult over two (or possibly more) years.

and one more

Wow Bev, thank you so much for the plethora of excellent, informative reference links....and you have answered my query and then some ....I will add these to my special file....I forgot that you had mentioned a few days ago that there was some moulting going on....comparing your scaps from Sept.24th to this mornings, what a difference a couple of days makes.... it looks like there's many constellations of feathers on the nest....reminds me of stars.....Grin

thanks again Bev, that is so great! Clapping
