Happy New Year Doreen and Eagle Friends wave

Belle spent the night on the nest ... i just happened to peek in and find her sleeping on the nest.
At least we presume it is Belle ...

Later Belle is awakened by what sounds like gun shots ... i was recording at the time here is the video footage.

The birds have been busy on the nest doing restorations, mating on the nest and most recently with Belle spending the night on the nest ... all these behaviors indicate our royal pair are gearing up for a busy nesting season so I am going to lock this thread and open our new thread for the 2018 nesting season.

Here is the link to the new thread


Thanks again to our small family that helped to document 2017 hopefully 2018 is much better for this pair Red Heart

May you enjoy all of the simple "pleasures or gifts" that surround you.
Let your spirit soar!
