update - Patriot, our male eagle is home!

Patriot (male) and Liberty. Together Again.

After weeks of missing our male bald eagle, Patriot I find out he is back with his lifetime mate, Liberty.  The whole saga bothered me in March - I almost hate to admit, I even took a turn toward depression as I grieved over the 3 small eaglets that were eaten and killed by a intruder eagle -  then with word that perhaps Patriot, had run into some mishap - and was quite possibly dead.  When you watch these eagle cams, it's hard not to get enmeshed into their lives. Then again, I am a soft touch when it comes to animal life.

The Intruder Eagle has stayed around - our local experts wanted us Patriot and Liberty fans,  to stop calling him the Evil Intruder, as they are doing what Eagles do.  So I felt bad, that I get so emotional about the whole affair. Okay I concede - Mr. Intruder was not being evil and I'm sorry! 

So now, we have a 4th new bald eagle that has entered the picture.

From our local friends of the eagles, when Patriot came back and Liberty saw him, she let out a scream - a happy one. And they were very happy to see each other. Now they are sitting in their favorite trees around their area; The Dead Tree and one we refer to as the Christmas Tree.  I plan to go there tomorrow morning to celebrate and Eagle Watch with fellow Eagle-lovers.

Here's the newest video of Patriots return.
