Great pictures - thanks so much!

3:12 pm
I've been losing the cam when I click the play button, so....

And this time I connected, and see an adult standing on the nest - and I'm not quite sure if I'm seeing the nest bowl or the other adult through the fuzzy area on the lens. I'm recording.

3:15 pm (2:00 into video)
I think I'm seeing the adult on the nest shaking clear so the other can take over. I must say the blob is in a very inconvenient spot.

3:17 pm (3:30 into video)
It looks as if the adult who is standing may be blocking some of the snow and wind from the incubating adult.

3:18 pm
Stopped video at 5 minutes; started a second video

Video Camera Eagles in the Snow - part I (5 minutes)


3:19 pm
I'm having trouble seeing the incubating adult, but I think he/she is there.

3:22 pm (3:30 into second video)
Seeing both adults - phew! Incubating adult just shook off, and other adult left soon afterwards.

3:23 pm
Stopped second video at 5 minutes - the blob is making some interesting effects - but there is an adult there, and his/her head is popping up from time to time.

Video Camera Eagles in the Snow - part II (5 minutes)

3:27 pm
The blob just fell off the cam, so you can see the adult on the nest.

I have a bunch of pictures---all courtesy of the Pennsylvania Game Commission!


I'm not real sure which eagle is which so will just show you the action and guess that mom was the first in the nest! I stopped doing s'caps when the snow blob on the cam covered the eagle Sad I remember these heavy wet snows in March from I was a kid--hope the tree will hold the weight!!

Mom stuck out her head to take a look around

Glad you were here, Mary - great pictures and a great job observing! Between the blob and the snow, I wasn't sure what they were doing.

I'm having no trouble with the cam but the darn blob is back---UGH! Rant: Will keep checking!

I watched both of your videos Judy and right here from the second video is where Mom was picking at Dad's head feathers---I guess she wanted back on those eggs!
