Along The Way

We made a couple stops on the way to visit the kids and grandkids in Louisville. There were some Sandhill Cranes around Cecelia. Wood ducks and one Pintail duck at Long Run Park. First time I have seen a pintail there. Will spend the next few day with the Grankids. Pretty sure this time I won’t be able to post again until Tuesday. Thank You for stopping by…

Between Rain Storms

I got lucky when I went out between rainstorms yesterday. Caught the male eagle at one nest. The intruder from the day before was back. Once again the male would try to chase the intruder off only to have it return later.

Will post more of the action tomorrow. The male at the nest active bringing in a couple sticks. Flying out of the nest with fish remains to eat it on a branch. There are a few possibilities about the intruder hanging around the nest. One that it may be wanting to steal food? Or possibly the male had stolen the fish from the intruder and it kept coming back to see if it could steal any remains? There were a lot of fish scale son the intruders beak. With all the rain we had yesterday and forecast for today I did not expect to be able to get out much and for sure did not think I would catch so much activity in that short time period. Will head out sometime today. Will try and find time to post more of yesterday’s lucky catch in a post tomorrow…

Foggy All Day

The fog hung in there all day. I can’t recall a day like this where it never cleared up for a moment even once. The intruder at the one eagles nest was back again. In fact it sat in a tree near the nest for a half hour, then flew down and sat on the front of the nest for an hour. I was surprised that it was not driven off. I guess were ever the pair from the nest were they could not see the intruder in the fog. I went home and ate, when I got back the male was in the nest. It flew off and returned later soaking wet. Evidently took a bath.

We are going to be having rain storms for the next two days. Then we are off to visit kids and grandkids. I probably won’t post again until next Tuesday. As usual if you have time check in I may post if I get time to get out and find something …

Active Eagle On A Misty Rainy Day

The male eagle was active at this nest yesterday. Repeatedly driving one intruder away from the nest and out of the nest at around sunrise time. A little nest work was done in between chases. The male always seeming to be within sight of the nest. Rushing back to the area on perched overlooking it most of the day…
