February Approaches

Well, I see that many people are using the www.briloon.ning.com site. We've had many observations of eagles at the nest over the past week, including some courtship behaviors. It is exciting to see activity at the nest increasing as we await another winter storm and the arrival of February.
All the Best,
Patrick Keenan

Patrick, the new site is a great addition. Looking forward to the next cam shots as well.
I know the eagles in VA are beginning to do their "nestorations" in their new digs. Well, actually their old digs, remodeled. Due to the awful season last year they abandoned that nest and moved back to their original place.Can't wait to see our pair this season...we are all so attached to them and are cheering them on from our computer desks...

1/28/09. At 7:30 both eagles flew into the nest and mosied around for a minute or two. One flew off, one moved to the Y branch and stayed a couple minutes before also leaving.
I do hope you will keep this blog up and running because I can't access the newer one. Thanks

Great to see Mom and Dad visiting the nest together these last few days. Some of their calls and chatter have been very melodic.
Anxiously waiting for the infra red to be fixed. Would it be possible to set the cam to go to color earlier in the morning? The last couple of days it has been changing an hour later than previously. It is almost 8:00 EST now instead of 6:00 when the sun is rising. Thank you.

1/28  2:45pmOh brrrr are those little chunks of ice floating along in the ocean? So much snow & cold.  Heard Wing's new video blog about nestorations saying the birds may build up the nest 6 - 8 inches as they ready themselves for spring and I was thinking about checking the height of the nest now against some landmark (or treemark) and then watch as it grew. Then I realized that the scale we see is so different that I think 6 or 8" would show as miniscule on screen, remembering how tiny squirrels & tiny birds are on the nest. Ah well, we'll watch them and know it's being done.

It was a treat to see both eagles on the nest early this morning. I walked away from the screen for 2min! and they both were there when I returned (6:30). I was sure I'd missed them bringing in food but alas, no breakfast here. Dad left after only a few min. Mom walked across the nest bowl with feet that looked like snowshoes on top of all that snow! She sat on the Y branch for at least a half hour.

So great to be seeing our favorite couple.

Both eagles were on the nest for a few short minutes this morning, no food.
Patrick, I know everyone's been asking and you're probably wicked busy what with 2 new cams in operation...but could you turn the color on this old nest a little earlier?

Feb 3....8:30 am. What a surprise to see an eagle sitting on the edge of a snow filled nest. Not sure if male or female. It was doing a lot of calling for it's mate (?). Hope we have some action this year!

2/3  8:30 amTook a little break, & found one Eagle on the nest, screaming away, think it's mom.  She leapt to the left front branch all the while screaming. Saw another fly by and thought it would be dad; she left and I could see a little of both of them flying around.  She was back to the nest within 2 0r 3 min. and is still calling out once in awhile.  Maybe it was a maurading eagle checking out territory....

Hi, I just checked the original cam and an eagle was on the nest. However, when I checked the second cam there was no eagle, therefore, went back to the original cam and the eagle was still there. Are the cams set up at two different locations?

Started checking to see if the eagles were around. Sure enough. At about 11:15 am this morning one was at the nest.Snow is also on the nest but it won't be long and Spring will be here. Look forward to watching the Eagles.

An eagle enjoyed a meal of gray squirrel until about 16:35. I don't know when s/he started the meal. The close ups were interesting. Thank you.

2/4   6:35 amBoth birds are on the nest this morning, beautiful picture.  I think I'm the only one who loves this view pulled out as it is this morning.  It gives a great shot of the activity around the nest, fly-bys, and maybe even a roost area.  I don't feel like we have to be up so very close when there are no babes to view.

What a difference 15 min. can make....now that it's lighter outside...well I know you have more work today to get the color on....but once that's done - still love the longer view!Birds were eating this morning - at 6:50 one left and one is still snacking.Patrick - how important is it to see what they bring to nest to eat every time? We know what they eat as a rule; so does it just satisfy our curiosity to get that up close view.J in S.P.ME

No sign of our Eagles but the close-up view of the nest is great. It looks like a gloomy day and I think I'm seeing large snow flakes. It's very quiet - no bird sounds of any kind.

Hello eagle watchers,
I am so glad to see activity at the nest, first time I tuned in this year, and how happy to see the pair having lunch together, and moving around a couple of sticks at 1:pm, they were vocal and then one flew to the y, the other flew out of sight followed by it's mate.
This will be the third year for me, and I hope they will raise a nice little family. I hope the weather is good for them.

I was so happy to look in on my favorite eagle pair for the first time this year, and found them sharing lunch at 1:pm, one of them was moving around the sticks, then one up to the Y to give a 'shout out' the one on the nest flew out of sight, then was followed by it's mate. After the heart break of "Little Wing" and last year's vacant nursery, I hope the weather will be kind to them this year..

I just happened to find your sight, I enjoy watching the pair of bald eagles we have here, went on the internet to look up information on same, and came across your feed. It is wonderful, my first time here this morning and I was extrememly lucky to see them both. I actually did see one of the feeding. I certainly will keep an eye on them from here on it.
