He did return again with a long branch and deposited it in the rear of the nest. He worked for about three minutes and left through the back. No photos. He did not return.
I was not able to relocate any eagles so I left for a while to look for raptors in another location.
When I returned, I was with my friend, Jane. Right away, we saw an eagle in a cypress tree vocalizing. A second eagle landed next to this one: HK (left) and Sterling looking regal.
They flew down the river and landed together in the Osprey nest, so Jane and I drove over there. That's Sterling in the nest and HK beside her.
HK eventually left the tower, gave us a beautiful flyover, and disappeared.
We drove to the nest, hoping to see him there, but no one was at home. So, we called it a day.
