I am so thrilled and RELIEVED!!!!Very Happy Now we can relax and hopefully sooner than later, observe them in their domestic bliss. Sitting eagle But part of my heart will be thinking of the kids and, in my mind, are still flying together and watching out for each other in their new adventures. Red Heart

It has happened at last. Dad Hornby is back! I checked the Peters' Tree at 8 o'clock this morning and there he was, sitting in his proper position, looking down. I asked him where Mom was, but he didn't say. We'll have to wait a little longer.

So much for my theory about wind direction. It is still a southeasterly wind, but dad came back anyway. Oh mayby I can salvage my theory a bit and say that the "wrong-way winds" delayed his return. How does that sound?


Very Happy

YAYY!!! :cheerguy:Clapping
So glad to hear that Dad is back! Hopefully Mom will be along soon too.

Mom Hornby is back also! On our morning walk there was a great squawking as we went past Grassy Point - an eagle in the His and Hers Tree. Wow it was noisey, but great to hear. Then there was another answering call from the nest area - just as loud. I think they were excited to be back home again. When we got back home, the other eagle was in the Babysitting Tree. So it looks as if another season is starting in good order. And to think they are now around 29 years of age!

Hurray!!! Mom's back too!

Sitting eagle Welcome Sitting eagle Thank you, Doug, for letting us know Mom & Dad Hornby have arrived safe and sound. That is wonderful news! Sure have missed them and hope we can see them again soon. Please continue to keep us posted on their antics. Mom was probably telling Dad this morning to be careful with the sticks this year and stop rearranging the nestSmile

The October 11 posts before this one were moved from the 2011 thread so the 2012 season would begin with the announcement that the eagles have returned. Smile

In answer to your question, jeada, we're forum-based, so I'm afraid there will not be an official Chat site this year (though we can set up a forum thread for informal, non-eagle discussion if there's a desire).

If anyone has other questions, please let me know.

And happy eagle watching! Smile
