    From Monday (6/12/17).

    All three eagles (both adults and the juvie) were in the Deer Creek nest, which gives you an idea of how big the nest is.

    The Pt. Edwards juvie ventured to the front edge of its nest.

    From Tuesday (6/13).

    The first time I have photographed the Pt. Edwards eaglet from the back of the nest.

    The locations, viewing angles, and flight paths related to both nests are such that we cannot get spectacular shots of the adults flying in and out of the nests like we could with the original Pt. Edwards nest in 2014. Terry's recent shots of a Pt. Edwards adult flying out of its nest towards him are proving to be the exception.

    Wednesday afternoon (6/14) action at the Deer Creek nest.

    One adult swooped into the nest.

    Immediately followed by its mate, which was carrying a bird that can be seen on the far left side of the photo.

    My Friday (6/16/17) lunch stop at the Deer Creek nest proved fruitful as I discovered a second baby in the nest. Both babies were stretching their wings. Judging by the exposed feather shafts, I think these babies are a week or two younger than the Pt. Edwards baby.

    One baby's beak is noticeably larger than the other's. Sister & brother?

    I stopped by the Pt. Edwards nest shortly before sunset and saw one adult hunkered down inside.
