Are you kidding me? 😬
Cardinals singing away. Crested flycatchers sound like they’re perched on the microphone. Dozens of other songbirds.
….and we get the treeline when cams finally move off the nest. ??????
Could go on a rant but I won’t.

I keep trying to figure out their rationale…silly me. My reactions swing from sighs to expletives!
I am quite envious of your ability to ID so many by their songs…

Many years in the field.📷
As I add the occasional image to my library, I’m noticing all the songbird caps from last season. Granted, there were no eaglets but having them on the nest this season is no excuse for not taking a few pans of the area.
Morning light and cam settings make for some lousy viewing(nest)…and would be one of the ideal times to catch the early chorus of songsters.

Perhaps you have forgotten how much time was spent on the Grackle nest…and still, according to my gallery from just April and May last year, I documented 30 other birds (some multiple times) plus 7 different mammals — there is a lot to see and learn about in the Eagles’ neighborhood.

Light on the mammals 🙂
Cattle. Deer. Coyote. Fox. Raccoon. Squirrel. Chipmunk. Opossum. Hedgehog. Mice (merry maids)
Skunk. Rabbit. Muskrat. At least one cat and a human from time to time.
Did I miss anything? Can’t remember if Weasel was at DNN.

Ugh. But at least DN18 gets to eat. Didn’t stand a chance against Fast Eddie DN17 on the fish delivery. That bird can move. You just see a feathered blur and a disappearing fish tail.

These two can really get your heart rate up when they start hop-flappin’ on the rails (or what’s left of them) in gusty winds. 18 was a breath away from going overboard again.
No pic…a blurry mess.

Yes!!! Happened to me a few days ago. I, too, didn’t scroll back to get a cap… In shock that it could float, with wings spread, 3ft above the edge of the nest for so long without being blown away from a safe landing.

Yes, and even tho a small screech owl, it can take 17 over the side if sitting on the edge. Fortunate that didn’t happen then.

LiveCamHighlights started at ~4:08pm…
With the weather this year, snow at the end of May wouldn’t surprise me! 🌨🌬

Live cam resumed at around 6pm nest time. It seems there had been a food delivery…

Is there any concern with the eagle laying in the nest alot? Maybe this is DN18?

I’ve wondered that, too. One of them definitely lays down much more than the other.
