Welcome news, winterwren!   They are a beautiful pair.  :heart

On thursday evening, the wind started howling, rain was pouring down, then our power went out!
i was lucky i got mine back by 4pm friday.
saturday it rained all morning, hard, then got a little nicer at the end of the day.
i had seen an Eagle in The Babysitting Tree on my way by, & was determined to get out to photograph them.
But i got waylaid by other things & never made it out.
Today was a beautiful sunny day, so the last thing on my list was to do a drive by through the Nest neighbourhood to look for the Eagles in the lovely setting Sun light.
There they both were!

Yikes, all the Trees have grown up & i had to keep looking up to spot them through the Trees to get my best views.
 


Here are both of them.
The one perched lower down is really hard to get a good view in to.
 


Now, i don*t have any real way of seeing in my fotos that this is Em, but what tells me that it is is Dad*s comfortable behaviour with her, noticeable in wren*s fotos last night, too.
They finally bonded after the Herring Spawn last season, & Dad would not be like this if the female were anybody else other than Mum.

Em is having a nice stretch of her right wing tail & foot here!
i have finally found a nice window to see her through.

Dad*s turn to stretch his right wing foot & tail.
You can see his hallux/back toe & talon hanging down.

i am not positive it is Dad at the top til i find a spot to view him from behind in the lovely light & we can see his unique feather now.







& a final view of Em, before i go home.
