This thread is set up to provide a place for the family of posters on the Sidney Nest Cam Discussion thread to talk about things directly related to what's happening at the Sidney nests. We'd prefer that all chatting took place in the Garden Fence Chat Area.

This is intended to be a more relaxed thread than the previous Sidney Research thread - but the basic rules still apply. There is to be no obscenity (and because this thread is in the Sidney forum and we encourage children to visit the Sidney forum to learn about eagles, we would appreciate your not using even the mild expletives and descriptions of bodily functions - gosh and golly are permitted - please consider some mythical maiden aunt or uncle looking at the forum with their great niece or nephew before using anything stronger).

"Poop" is an allowed word when referring to something done by an eaglet. I know that some words which describe bodily functions are also used as casual slang in some areas - but because they are considered far more impolite in some regions than others, we may change them to family-friendly alternatives. No PM is required because notice is being given here.

There is to be no discussion of politics or religion. And there is to be absolutely no personal attacks or bullying. All opinions are welcome and everyone's point of view is to be respected.

This will be a self regulating forum - And we all need your help to keep the forum running smoothly. - if you see a post that has language that might upset a school board or that seems impolite or disrespectful to another person - please bring the post to our attention.

Thank you for your help - and let's watch the eagles and enjoy the wonder of these marvelous creatures for another year!

(During the evening of July 8, one eaglet "danced/flapped/hopped across the nest and went of backward at the 4:00 area. He returned to the nest on his own July 10th before noon. Several observers thought that it was Burrows, the youngest, who may have fledged first, though a couple of observers thought it was Flyer.)

Hello!

Just my 2 cents worth... could this be Pa? Didn't Pa have a small white patch between his 2 wings towards his tail feathers?

Good to see at least one back for now!

Hi Diane, Pa's white patch is more on his wing that spot your seeing is the tail between the two folded wings. I don't know that we'll even be able to tell on this cam.

Oh plllllease get the close up cam going!!

Nice to see one of the eagles back! We should be able to tell by the legs when we get the correct view.

OMG that is absolutely wonderful news. Thank you yalitldevl for the" heads up" telephone call just now. Sitting eagle One down, one to go and talons very tightly crossed. ( I am thinking Ma is the first back this year but maybe Pa gained some weight over the last month or so :drySmile Nevertheless, the missing spouse is on his or her way.
I am just so thrilled and happy.loveRed HeartWub
