No changes to report, Sandy remains silent, but
from time to time h/s definitely follows and tracks birds flying by/overhead -- probably
would be making some noise if it were Mom or Dad.....no sign of them yet.

Hi Alicia, that is a good question about Dad's age....I know that Mom was approx. 21 years old this spring, according to David's calculations and edit: I am not sure, but I thought that I had read somewhere that Dad is was younger than her, but I could be wrong.....but perhaps JudyB will have an answer for you when she arrives online today. or maybe Bev or Yolande will know but I think they are off line for a bit at this time.

I would love to sign in to get some close ups of Sandy's face, that one of my most favorite things to do, but unfortunately I am away from home, and don't
have my set up to get in on the cams (using my sister's laptop) I tried to find the info that I need looking through my (PM's) private messages but cannot find
the info that I need to sign in properly. I'm sorry. but someone will be here soon to zoom again....surely Smile

8:08 am Sandy's looking a bit warm -- nice morning sunshine
No visits by Mom or Dad since I first signed on....

Hi Alicia

Sorry I am unable to zoom right now.

This is what we know about the Honeycombs .... Taken from my post


For inf. purposes ........Mom Honeycomb will be 21 years old this year.... 2016 ......we don't know how old Dad Honeycomb is.

Closing remarks from David Hancock:

So now we have more details -- Chapter 2 of hopefully many! Our big lady was banded in June, 2001 as a full adult and released after she had completed about 2 months of rehabilitation following collision with a car. So this bird was now a minimum 17 years old when she came to the Harrison Mills nest. She had survived a battle with a vehicle but been found by people who cared. Then again, if my suspicions are correct, she is the female from the Morris Valley nest, she has had another run-in with humans -- this time with disturbing chain saws, consecutive work crews and helicopters -- and again survived. No wonder our eagles have been increasing. Once we changed our attitude and considered predators good icons, essential indicators of how healthy an ecosystem is, they rebounded with the very virility our Harrison Mills pair was continuing to show.


Added.

I will do that Yolande ,,i will say help to Gail from all who post here.!

wave Hi Yolande




Thank you so much for that info. I do have another question - when Putter and Driver fledged, did they stick around? Did they learn to fish? Were the cameras able to catch them near Mom and Dad at the River? How long did they stick around after they fledged and did they leave the territory together? Thanks! Oh and can Sandy see the River from the nest? If so which position? Staring right on the branches? Or left?
