Eagle Cam Notice

Tues 11/6 Jackie brought a big stick to the nest early this morning-- the first one in several weeks. It looked like she thought about positioning it, but in her usual manner, she left it where it landed for someone else to do the detailsShadow and Jackie have both visited the nest a couple times in the last few evenings. Shadow spent some time watching the area, but when Jackie was there he focused on stick arranging while she supervised, or let him know her disapproval. In the end, even Jackie did a bit of house-keeping
