Lots of Activity

Hi All.
I just wanted to post here quickly.  What a lot of activity we have had at the nest!  A potential second female and a visiting immature and several disputes.  All of this has not left us an egg in the nest but we all remain hopeful.  
If you are away from the cams check back in by logging into our on-line cam community to review what you may have missed.  The site is located by clicking the button below our image view at www.briloon.ning.com.  Have a great day!
All the best,

Hi Patrick: It's been very exciting watching the eagle cam these past few days. Just curious as to when or if we will be getting the night vision back.

Thanks for all you and BRI do to keep all the cams up and running.

Hello all, at 8:29 on St. Patrick's day, I clicked on to watch live video. At the very moment, I saw papa eagle breeding with momma. Maybe the babies should have an Irish name. What do you think? Thanks, Rhonda from Massachusetts

Hi all, the eagle nests are perhaps a hundred miles apart. As far as the night vision goes. We are working on it but unfortunately having the IR on crashes our program...working toward a solution. All the Best,

I just signed on in time to see one squirrel on the Y branch - no sign of Eagles or anything else. I haven't been lucky enough to see any activity the past few days so it's good to read everyone's observations - at least I know they're still around.

Eagle on the "y" limb, think its Mom. Dad vocalizing but not in view. Dad might be sitting on a limb higher in the tree.
Eagle (Mom) appears to be sleeping on the limb, with head brought around and tucked under back of wing.
4:50a.m. Mom still sleeping on the "y" limb. Dad close by, he continues to call out once in awhile

Both Eagles are sitting on the Y branch and there's not another sound except the wind and the water. They're just looking around. I just heard another Eagle calling and they became very alert. I just heard it again but they don't seem to be too concerned about it.

At 2:25 pm central time both eagles were on the large branch. Short time later one eagle changed its position and moved further on to the branch. Stayed awhile and then flew off. Present time is 2:38 and still just one eagle on the branch looking out toward the water. Sorry to say not sure I know female from male, since this is my first sighting.

Beautiful sight to see.

I am frustrated again this year, as I cannot get the live feed on my Vista machine on EagleCam. Strangely, I can get the live feed on both other cams. The EagleCam2 is fine, and the PeregrinCam is also fine, although the sound is very staticky.
I have updated eveything I can think of: RealPlayer, Java, QuickTime, Windows Media Player, Flash, Shockwave, all Vista updates.
I am also able to see all the videos perfectly well. This is the only one I am having trouble with.
Does anyone have an explanation? This happens only on my computer at home. At work, the live feed works perfectly.
If none worked, I would say it is definitely something with my computer, but the others work fine!

There is one Eagle on the Y branch looking out over the water. He's looking right into the camera now. The microphone keeps cutting out and now and then the screen goes black for a few seconds. It's 5:50 now and the Eagle hasn't moved - maybe he's waiting for dinner.

17:49 - found an eagle on base of the Y.

18:22 - eagle still on Y.

18:43 - missed arrival, but second eagle in the nest while the first remains on the Y.

18:46 - second left. Much noise. First eagle moved from Y into bowl.

18:48 - second returned. Both in nest moving twigs. Then first moved back to Y.
Second continues work of rearranging.

18:56 - 2nd off again, followed a minute later by eagle on Y.

As far as id. First had typical bad hair day with ragged u to w in front ... much like our Ms. Mom. Day is very windy, so who knows?

Second eagle had a more narrow and sleek head with an almost perfect V (except for a loose looking feather) ... much like our Mr. Mom of old.

As my perception is probably prejudiced by my wishful thinking, I can only hope that somebody else can help with the id of this pair.

A beautiful sight regardless of which eagles I observed!

Just checked in about 4:15pm central(Missouri) time and found both M&D at the nest. M was moving sticks around. D was up on the branch to the front left and M on the Y branch. It's now 4:46pm MO time and they are both still there. It's exciting to think they may bring us more eaglets this year!! It's been a long dry spell.

started watching about 4:14pm central(MO) time and found M&D at the nest. M was moving stick around. D sat on the branch foreground left. D went to the nest about 4:56 and picked around, then at 4:58, he hoppe on M and attempted a mating. At least this time they both remained on the branch and didn't fall. It's so exciting to see them back and giving it another try, if this is the original pair, of course. If not, we'll just be happy to see eaglets again!! It's been a long dry spell.

17:57 - rather noisy, unusually awkward-looking mating! She screeched a long time after.

I found 2 eagles on the nest rim a few minutes ago. First one, then the other moved to the Y. Did not have a chance to try to identify. However, the mating session was more dramatic than usual.

18:02 - both are still sitting on the left Y ... one far enough left to be headless on screen.

This is the first day of Spring and I was so happy to find both M&D there and seeing them attempt to pro-create was encouraging. I got hooked on this pair/nest 4 yrs ago and am anticipating success this year!! They have both been at the nest for over an hour straight now. If anyone else has watched them and saw them arrive earlier than 4:14pm central, please post. It seems as if they are protecting their domain. There has been a lot of vocalizing from both of them and some in the distance as well. Color me happy it's SPRING!!

March 20th...So they do breed on a branch, rather than on the nest? I saw that happen at 4:45 this afternoon but did not know what I was witnessing. Poppa hopped on her back, lots of squawking by both. Then he got turned around but still kept at it. When he hopped off and stood next to her on the branch they both made different calmer sounds.

08:41 - off nest to right Y. Quiet chatter from both.

09:03 - both still there. Eagle from right Y into nest followed by eagle from left Y.

09:04 - both now in nest with male(?) moving sticks.

09:06 - male remains in nest rearranging; female from nest to main Y.

09:07 - eagle on Y flies off to left.

09:09 - eagle from nest to left Y.

09:14 - eagle gone but can hear chatter off camera.

Last year we were able to id the pair from the rear by the amount of white tail showing. I cannot remember which showed more white ... any help with that?

peggymaine; About 2:30 this afternoon, Saturday March 21st, she squawked a lot, turning around to see if anyone was paying attention, then settled into a steady position, perfect profile, rump down, staring straight ahead and immobile for perhaps 20-30 seconds and sure looked as though she was delivering an egg. When she finished she just up and flew off. False labor?

Just a note to some who were wondering about the odd bird calls ....
the raven's cries are many and varied....if you hear croaks or clicks or gutteral or alarmed squawks...anything weird...chances are it's a raven!
Some may disagree, but the raven is kind of a 'cool' bird....I've had some 'up close and personal' experience with one while climbing in Baxter State Park....it was a little freaky.....

Oops, we have a landing, and another.....
Up to the Y...

Checked in at 1:40pm, overcast day - one sitting on nest, simply looking around. At 1:44 lots of "arguing" between the eagle and a near-by crow. 1:46 hopped up on Y branch, shaking feathers, preening. 1:51 sun came out. 1:53 flew off to the right.
I've never gotten to see this pair before, and don't know which is male or female. Once I figure that out I'll relay that info also.

14:30 - Both eagles flew into the nest with lots of chatter. One moved onto left Y ... the other followed shortly with more chatter between them. Then the male moved further left on the branch putting a little space between them.

14:33 - Whoops, he just closed the distance to mate!

14:34 - Both flew off.

The drama continues. Perhaps they just keep practicing hoping to get it right? Perhaps we will see some eggs?

He seemed to have stopped by for leftovers from the other eagle's lunch. Hung around a bit and then flew off. No calling out of any kind.

Monday the 30th 2:40, looks like Mom came back to the nest, called out; hung around, poked around, noone showed up so she flew off about two minutes later.

6:30 Monday 3/30 Probably my last entry for today. I've not been around steadily but there have been several quick visits a couple of times in and out of the nest,seemingly a mature eagle (I hope Momma) not the probably immature kid I saw a couple of hours ago; calling sounds and chattering also, still off camera. You wonder if they are going to a marriage counsellor. Crossing fingers that it will all still come together. Novice that I am as a bird-watcher, the several mating attempts that I observed were not 'on the mark' so to say.

Mar 31st. What a sight to see both on the nest at the same time. Working in the nest and just sitting. Are these the same 2 from the previous years? I can't tell as the camera is still in night mode. P. from Michigan

March 31st, 5pm; the pair has been in and out of the nest a couple of times late this afternoon, at one point fussing at each other. Twice they were on the branch side by side but there was no activity and they have flown away.

PS from peggymaine: any chance that the blog can be updated more often than once a week? I know you guys are plenty busy as always but it would be wonderful to get others' feedback.

It's quiet at the site this morning and there's no sign of our Eagles. I hear them calling in the distance. Is it too late for egg lying? There are eggs in the nest at Eagle cam II.

In the past 2 days every time I've checked out the eagles there has been one on the nest! Maybe eaglets?

Foggy Maine morning in So. Portland, Friday April 3, 9am. Very excited to read that the mid-Maine eagle mom has done her thing, and to pull up the site to see her sitting on the egg. Thx for the notice in the newspaper! I have figured out (not too swift at this stuff) how to keep that site visible while continuing to watch the coastal eagles, who have not gotten very far, unfortunately. I have the live cam on coastal and then have mid-Maine on the 15-second update screen. Also, thx for uploading the latest bunch of entries on the coastal cam. Nice to know that I was not alone Best to Kit and Anonymous (sing, plural?!) from peggymaine.

Monday April 6, 5:53pm This is peggymaine. I guess we will not have success here this year, from glancing in now and then over the last week. Crossing fingers, and pulling for the Eagle2 cam nest. Alas.....

Kit! thx so much for your posting here. I will keep monitoring both Maine eagle nests at your suggestion. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have success at the coastal nest. I've been on the virginia site often and in the chat room once or twice yesterday and today but not when you were on. Could really get hooked. The little ones there are cute, but our Maine cams are more important! Cheers from SoPo.....Fri 10:30pm April 10th
