Around Hornby Island ~ 2018-2019 / Re: Nest Tribune Bay Tennis Court - 2019 season
« Last post by boonibarb on February 22, 2019, 08:16:44 AM »
 
It was nice & sunny & we went for a walk on the exposed beach of Tribune Bay, from the Campsite Nest end to the Tennis Court Nest end.
We got to the far end & sat on a log in the Sun for a while.
When we headed back, i noticed a shape that stood out in the Cottonwood Trees near the beach in front of the Nest Tree, next to the path to the out houses.
If it was a Bird, they were large, but not as large or dark as an Eagle.
Turned out she was a Red-tailed Hawk!
Enjoying the Sun shine like we were.
She remained perched for a very long time & i was able to creep closer & closer with my camera.
i have a ton of fotos to upload, but to start, here is a video of her!

Around Hornby Island ~ 2018-2019 / Nest Tribune Bay Tennis Court - 2019 season
« Last post by boonibarb on February 22, 2019, 07:49:16 AM »

This Nest is in the tallest Tree in the area, at the top of a small hill, overlooking the Tribune Bay tennis court & Tribune Bay beyond, with the cliffs of High Salal off to the left.
It is on the grounds of an Outdoor Education Center, where lots of kids go & have fun.
In the summer, the beach is packed with people, & the Bay with boats.
There is a huge grassy field, all along the beach, from to the left of this Nest, all the way to the right of Tribune Bay.
It is a fabulous location, though i do worry & wonder how the Eagle pair manage to feed their youngsters when there are always so many people present during their nesting season.
Last year the Eagle pair had at least one branching Eaglet on the Nest Tree, the last that i saw.
 
Last year*s topic, & links to previous years can be found here.

I was enjoying an evening at the wetland field,  hoping to see some short eared owls.  While waiting for sunset there was a Northern Harrier that was hunting and it flew right by me,  almost to close for my camera lens.  Amazing to see the focus in his eyes as he went by.

That unknown eagle is a beauty and certainly not bothered by the paparazzi.  :nod2
