It's great that we have this identifier for Dad!  And thank you for sticking to your hunch and getting those photos, booni!

jeavverhey, which foto & where?

Okay, today i went down to Grassy Point to walk Otto after all the rain & wind & it was lovely down there.
There was an Eagle in The His & Hers Tree, but they flew off as i was focusing on them & flew towards the Niners* water side perch Tree & i heard upset calls from over that way for at least 15 minutes.
A little later, an Eagle flew in from the water, over my head & over toward the Nest area.
There were fabulous clouds & then a double rainbow.
After, i drove around & found this Eagle on the left side of The Babysitting Tree.

Something is catching her attention over towards the Niners* area.
 


& there she goes.
She flew some lazy circles overhead so i moved on.
Now, i think this was a female Eagle, but look how her tail feathers don*t include those two stained ones i*ve been catching in my fotos.
This one has small dark spots on the far left & right tail feathers as she takes off.
 


i drove around & spotted this Eagle in The Peters* Tree.
Dad?
Looks like the wind is catching that feather of his & we are just seeing the white patch on the right side of it.

This is a very Dad look.
& again you can just see a bit of that feather.
