Some of our members think the pesky bird is a grankle and i found a picture of it online and it definitely looks like a grackle ... what do you think?

310 pm
Belle is still perched in the attic; she was calling out
again; sharp alert calls ... repeatedly so something is
bothering her today ... maybe an intruder in her territory.
No visuals and no other calls heard.

hi Deb, in your first post where you say the bird is calling and calling, I couldn,t hear nothing, the second and last post I could hear Belle calling out through the whole video, so I don't know Dunno I did not think the starling looked like the grackle at all, tail much longer and wings, head different also, ut i'm not a good judge at these things. I find the starlings very pretty, but definitely pesty Rant Grin watching our nest the last couple hours, the winds are definitely powerful this evening, dad I believe was on the nest earlier waiting for mom, but too windy and she never showed up. it is 753pm now. he stayed there about 25 minutes. I have some scaps but you probably have a video so i'll wait to see

635pm dad I think just landed on nest, it has been super windy all day and still is, nest is rocking and rolling big time dad looks all around for mom I think, as he keeps getting the wind pushing him all over.
7pm dad finally just flew off, pretty sure it was him.

Morning Doreen and NCTC Friends wave

Doreen thanks for your posts ... i turn the volume way up on my computer, also on the eagle cam site and i use speakers ... sound is greatly improved with speakers. Sorry you could not hear the calls.

I posted the side by side of the starling and the grackle because we often see starlings at the nest
Titter

Yesterday we had a sub adult visit the nest twice; then when Belle and Smitty came back to the tree before dark they were very vocal so the young adult must have been perched in the tree Titter
Belle was not happy but i think it all ended peacefully.

Here are some captures of the beautiful sub adult Wub

During the second visit the sub adult actually moved some bedding and some sticks; perhaps an off spring of Belle and Smitty but we will never know for sure!

After alerting from the tree the sub adult must have left the area; the resident pair did a good job of protecting their territory!

When things settled down they visited the nest together just before dark ...
