Yes Judy it was still very bright out as they said it would be. If the smoke and haze had stayed we might have noticed the Eclipse more. Thanks for the scaps of Mom on the nest- ten days until she leaves? Sad It's always too soon.

Hi All

Spent the morning trying to record and watch the eclipse on the Internet - Along with a zillion others. The stream kept freezing. But I did get a good recording from Oregon and here are my favorite captures

Gorgeous Corona Bet. Our best local coverageSmile that I found was on Global TV. The weather network was disappointing as they kept cutting back to mundane weather forecasts. Don't Panic Makes one wonder.

1.05 pm I found Middy looking very relaxed lying mid-nest until she finally stretched out her wings and by 1.35 Middy was sitting up calling while looking at the trees nw of the nest. Unfortunately I missed her leaving. Sad Glad that you caught all that Bet. Smile

1.44-51 pm Empty nest. Then at 1.56 pm a single magpie scoured the nest staying several minutes.

2.14 pm Empty nest again.

After yesterday's non-stop events, today is very quiet.

Middy left the nest at 3:25. Senior remained, essentially doing nothing - either lying mid-nest or standing on the near rim.

AT 4:10 one of the LAs flew in

Stayed on the far rim and then flew off at 4:35

Senior still on the nest standing on the near rim.
