Hi Artist,

Here is the link to the forum Tutorials threads:   http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?board=6.0

The noise you hear is the clean-up going on because of the number of trees and branches damaged during the recent storms.  There are trained, professional people who are hired by the owners of the properties and they are doing necessary work to remove dangers and get rid of the debris.  The nest tree is protected by Canadian laws and the owners of that tree care very much about the eagles.

Also, Doug and Sheila Carrick keep a close eye on the nest and the eagles, using their live cams (that we watch) and his telescope and binoculars.   :nod2

That is so nice to know. I was worried that someone may have thought it a nice logging area and couldn't care less about the birds and other wild life. I am so sick and tired of companies destroying natural area's and taking homes away from the animals.

There are laws here that prevent removal of trees around an eagle nest so that won't happen.

I'm not sure if this is how to post a comment/question.This is my first time visiting a forum so here goes.I am an ex Vancouver Islander transplanted to Quebec and I have to say how amazing it is to be able to see the eagles again.I notice that the camera angle is from above and farther from the nest.Are there two cameras or has the one been moved? Just curious.Thanks to those who have done an amazing job of allowing us to see these amazing creatures close up without disturbing them.

'Witch' and 'Eagle_Lovers', hello and welcome to the Forum,

I believe there are several videos on YouTube related to that sad day at Hornby. That was the first year Doug brought us the cam with Mum and Dad; which was 2006; not 2007.


10:36 a.m. Dad is busy doing 'nestorations at the moment. I am sure Mum will have a hissy fit on her return.




10:39 a.m. dad is still moving around. here we can see one of the two eggs.



Enjoy

yes I know it was 2006... I have them all in hancock media.. :) :biggrin3 thank you for the welcome.... im so excited I can't wait for the peep.. then the hatch... :biggrin3

Welcome, cwelsh!  Glad you can enjoy eagles once again.  Doug Carrick (the cam owner) can switch the view of the nest between a wide-angle and a close-up cam.

Thanks for the info on the cameras. I have been amazed by the quality of the close up camera and have found it quite addictive to sit and watch the eagles.I'm sure it won't be long until we see some chicks breaking out.A la prochain.

Hi cwelsh,

Like you I am very addicted to the eagle cam and can't wait for the chicks to start coming out. I am sure I will get some good sketches of them also. As Bald Eagles are not seen in my neck of the woods it is great for me to see close ups of them. Thanks Doug and Sheila for putting up this wonderful cam so we can all see these magnificent birds.

Hello cwelsh or bonsoir et bienvenue to Hornby.  If you check out this area of the forum you will find information pertaining to the eagles life cycle the reproduction cycle, terms that have been coined for their actions, updates from Doug etc. etc.


Still no pip.

Mum is on the nest. She seems a little sleepy.  I took these at snaps at 8:18 p.m and 8:19 p.m.






8:47 p.m. Mum starts to move a branch and thinks twice.




8:54 p.m. Almost dark on the island and Mum is asleep ~ sleep well Mum :sleep

Thanks to all who made this site possible.  I had the oppurtunity to view a similar site last year of bald eagles nesting somewhere in Florida.  Can't wait for the hatchings.

Wednesday April 28

6:34 A.M. Nest time.  Mom and Dad did not switch places this morning as they usually do. Many of us thought we heard little tiny peeps during the early morning hours. Finally, when Mom got up and rolled the eggs at 6:34, we all saw what appeared to be a pip hole and heard cheeping!
