Booni, TYVM for the photos!  They are fabulous (as always)!   Good to see dear Dad is back.  He is so handsome....  :hearts2 :s*   

I still miss Mom, but do hope that Dad and Em will continue to bond, and have a successful breeding season.

Thanks for showing us Dad's feather, booni.  It's such a good marker!    :thumbup:

It rained almost all day today, but finally around 5 pm the sky cleared partially and I was able to go outside.

After a while I heard trills!
That was a surprising sound, and I realised I hadn't heard that sound in the neighbourhood this fall yet, even after Dad returned. Mind you I haven't been home much.

Time to investigate!

Didn't take me long to find the source... 
Sweet!
Two eagles on the babysitting tree!
October 8, 6:03 pm



Imp, on the chat, said right away that the female's neckline looks like Em's. What looks familiar to me is the little double track of dark on the tip of one of the tail feathers.
6:09


Both eagles had their chest feathers puffed up and were alerting from time to time, but I wasn't able to find any other eagle in the area.
