Both adult eagles came to the nest last evening. The female stayed all night, but sometime during the evening the male left. Here are photos from this morning at sunrise of both adults and the female from the new camera system.
These are absolutely gorgeous! Reese, can you feel all the smiles beaming your way? I am enraptured
Hello Mr. Lukei…Wonderful images and this new cam is fantastic. Thanks for posting the photos of our beloved pair.
Fantastic! Thanks Reese!
Perfection, Reese! The true meaning of the “Circle of Life.” I’m so looking forward to another season and new life! Thanks so much for the updates!
WOW,,,WHAT BEAUTIFUL PICTURES, that new camera is FAB….How close the pictures are, you can count the feathers on their heads…and you can see how beautiful their eyes are too….
Thank you Reese. Wonderful job, as always.
Dad’s black feather on his head,,,,,is gone!
I believe Reese is more anxious for the cam to begin than anyone…..just saying.
Love the new camera. And the Happy Couple.
Oh, Reese, how incredible! Can’t wait. thank you for the pictures. Looking forward to “moving” pictures. ♥♥
Great pics!!! Great camera!!! Awesome!!!
Wow. How beautiful is that!!!
Very much appreciate those wonderful pictures Reese. A big heartfelt thank you.
WOW – amazing clarity. A hearty thanks to Mr. McDonald. Any pointers on how to tell them apart other than the length of their mouths in relation to their eyes? The Lady Legacy’s head seemed to have a different shape – broader than Dad’s, but the new female seems to have the same sleek head and brow as the male but with a thicker neck. Any clues for us?
Beautiful! I am so anxious for the new season to begin!!! Thank you for sharing this preview!
Beautiful! This is what we all were hoping for! Thank you for keeping us updated!
Good Evening Reese.
I was wondering if the three spots near the female’s mouth/left nostril are permanent marks we can use for identification or just dirt. I have not noticed them before and figured you would have. Just trying to keep up…
The pictures are awesome! Beautiful couple! Looking forward to the cam going live and watching them! 🙂
Well, I have given up trying to find marks for IDing the two when not together. I can only see the size difference and beak differences when they are together, lol. However, as this is the first season I will be watching from the very beginning, these beautiful photos are well worth my confusion and anticipation of a “real” reality drama. While, we have all learned the many pitfalls possible for the eagles, we are moving forward with great hope, following Dad’s lead.
The new cameras are fantastic. I am so happy to see the male with his new female companion. I love the pictures of them snuggling..I can’t wait until next year to see if they mate. Thanks for sharing the photos. We were all so worried about the male after he lost his long-time companion.
Beautiful photography. It’s amazing how those little goofy (but absolutely cute) bobbleheads can turn into such magnificent creatures. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks so much for these amazing pics and updates. Gosh, we are getting so excited!
And Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
Fabulous pics of our new eagle pair, Reese. Thank you SO much! Guess I shouldn’t wish my life away but I can’t wait for January and the new eagle season, the hopes for the new pair and new life, and some bittersweet memories of our old eagle pair.
OMG ! what a beautiful sight !! fantastic camera debut; they are beautiful !!!
The new cam images are amazing. Thanks Reese for giving us these awesome shots. So looking forward to a new and exciting season.
Merry Christmas everyone.
Reese do you have a website where we can purchase some of your excellent and crisp photographs of these eagles?
Response – Sally I appreciate your asking, but I think I am just too lazy to spend the effort and time to market my photos. It is easier to donate them to variouus non-profits and agencies, which is what I do.
when is the mating expected? In March?
Response – Mating should begin any time now. Eggs usually laid in January. Chicks usually hatched by March.
I am waiting for another GREAT experience
what a tease on these great pictures of the new couple…can’t wait for the new season to start!
