Looks like Gemini and Apollo aren't ready to head out yet. Interstate and power poles...those kids are working on me! I kept thinking they would show up at the nest today...I was looking for them. Sure hope they stay safe.

Mercury must be eating and doing ok. Star likes the farm fields. That is where she first hung out...glad she is a country gal.

Sure appreciate the updates, Mr. John. Just wish Sky would check in.

Carol C

Nice to see the up dates. They sure are staying together. Be nice if they kept it up. Over the 80 interstate. wow! They are close to lock & dam 14. There are eagles on the Rock River that have nests too. Might get cased off by them.

Mavis

I just wish they'd get away from the Interstate, Carol. Just too dangerous for that kind of roadkill. I don't see them finding much to eat in the city. Wish they would find a nearby farm or something.

Parent on nest

Mavis

Both L and J on nest

Katy

One still there, missed the other one.

Katy

Now there is Two.

Mavis

Yes...can barely see the other one...hidden behind the leaves near the donut. That's where I saw it last night.

Chris

I have not seen them both up close for a long time. They both are moulting big time especially on their heads. No wonder I thought she resembled Liberty especially in size because it was Liberty not a young 5 year old eagle. She looked very skittish and nervous last evening when she arrived.

Katy

They sure their favorite spots, same perches every night.

JC

I just looked in before I call it a night...nice to see them both...looks like they are facing each other on either side of the donut..the end of another day......may we all rest well and wake with renewed energy...Good night all..

Judith H

I C 2... molting and itchy.

Katy

They looked settled, Signing off. G'Night

Mavis

OMG! Judy, I thought Lib had a head full of bugs!

Mavis

Goodnight, Katy...glad you are feeling better.

Mavis

I'm calling it a night, too. Good night everyone.

Mavis

Came back for final nest check...the moon shiinning on the water is so bright on TTV. Beautiful

I see someone posted 2 and 1/2 hours AFTER the NEW THREAD notice went up on the last thread. Crystal Pony must not know that not everyone will see her post now. Maybe someone will explain "new thread" to her...I'm going to bed.

Roma

Perhaps ~~~~~~~~~. THREAD CLOSED . ~~~~~~~~~ as I've seen some posters use, plus a push link to the new thread would help infrequent posters find the right route. Maybe Crystal reads it as an invitation to post below the phrase ~~~~~~~~~. NEW THREAD. ~~~~~~~~~

Chris

That sounds like the correct approach Roma. When you all close out a thread and the new thread for those that don't post often to understand how it works.

Tonight I am watching TLC channel. It is a real treat Jackie Evanchos has her own show now and I have heard her sing tonight several times. Her whole family is on the show. She is the one who sang at President Trumps inauguration.

Chris

* Post a new thread for those that don't post often....

JC

Good morning...both Liberty and Justice are still at the nest this morning...one has its head tucked and I can only see the back of the head ....on the right of the donut...

JC

I'm not adverse to a different approach to the end of a thread...I wonder if "closed" may make one think they cannot post period...would " thread ended" be understood more easily? Or " final thread" ....It doesn't happen very often...

Carol C

Good morning! I missed L & J I'll have to go back. Nice cool morning again. 60 This is perfect weather. 60 to 80. Perfect for me. Lots of kids have gone back to school here already. There are some year round ones that only get 2 months off.
Work for me. Have a good day.
JC Did you go see the American Queen (I think) in Dubuque? I saw pictures someone took of it. Very pretty. I'd love to do that.

Mavis

I see no one went back and told Crystal to bring her post forward or what "New Thread" means.

"New Thread" means exactly what it says. Crystal Pony is not new...she knows how to identify a young, five year old female eagle, (Justice). She didn't just wander onto that post...the new thread had been listed for 2 and 1/2 hours so she chose that thread to post on. I suspect Crystal Pony is a seasoned poster and demonstrated that she follows the comments when she said, "Chris, looks like you nailed it 'AGAIN'....". However, it would have been nice if someone had told her what "new thread" means...just in case. Closed, ended, final, means what it says as well. NEW Thread describes it correctly...In My Opinion...no need to change a thing.

The sun gives everything a golden color on TTV. Beautiful morning.
