***UPDATE*** 10/5/14 The pair have returned and have been sited in the area where the old nest was. But still no clues as yet where they will build.
***UPDATE*** 10/20/14 I have been to the nest approximately 15 times and haven't seen the eagles. I have gone early, late, noon, to no avail. Last night I was coming toward Buchanan from Kingsland and decided to pop up there even tho it was probably too dark to see anything. I think it was about 7:30 pm, just when the sun was already down but a little light was still left. As I pulled into the paved part, two birds came flying in, heading west and I could see they weren't vultures but couldn't see any white on them. I pulled up through the dirt lot and saw one land in the tree to the east of the old tree. Through my binoculars, even tho it is almost dark I can see the silhouette and can tell it's an eagle but again, no white. Just as I started to wonder if it was a juvenile or a golden eagle I looked a little to the right and the pair of bald eagles were there, in the tree to the west of the old tree, so I assume the other is a juvenile from last year! I have only seen a juvenile return with them once since they started coming and I know he won't stay but I was excited to see him. Since it turned completely dark while I was sitting there, I guessed they would spend the night there so I returned this morning at first light (about 6:45 am) and I got to see the bald eagles again but didn't see the juvenile. I wanted pictures but they made some funny calls, pooped and left before it was light enough. I can't help but get my hopes up that they will build there again! Oh, and I also heard a long horned owl there this morning. I saw the nest last year and didn't know what lived in it until I asked Texas Parks and Wildlife, I would not have guessed that they would nest around and eagle and vise versa.
