Sorry Booni i didn't see your question. The eagle was sitting on 2 eggs, that's Lasqueti Island across from the nest. This pair don't seem to have a lot of luck last year the eggs disappeared, the year before one eaglet went missing & i believe & hope one eaglet made it to fledge, the year before no luck either. Not sure what goes wrong there as there is very little human disturbance it a very tall tree so i wouldn't think raccoon, the owner thinks the ravens took the eggs last year. I have a bit of a problem with that as one eagle was always on or near nest anytime i checked it, so you would think it would be a huge confrontation & also the ravens are nesting at the same time. :puzzled2 Just guessing but could it be contamination from fish or secondary poisoning from rodents & rabbit, dunno.
Fingers crossed for this year.

Haven't seen a lot of Bob & Margaret because i think because the river/inlet is really high, going next Sunday to find the nest have a pretty good idea of where but i haven't wanted to go by myself as there are still a lot of bears that didn't hibernate.

As promised in Hornby Nest Discussion,

http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=11.msg6106#msg6106

the second video here shows an eagle using a log.  It is the same beach that was totally covered yesterday morning with high waves and drifting logs (first video).

0:32 HIGH TIDE & LOGS



A log is somewhere to perch on the beach or eat their prey.  We have several nearby nests, so eagles frequent our beach and trees.  Our property is a little point in the middle of a bay.  Offshore, a pair of eagles have a big flat nest on a windswept tree at the end of an island (shown in video) and perch in the trees on the point, directly above the house and garden.

I was blessed to see this eagle up close in Juneau, Alaska.

Jdarnall, that's a beautiful photo!  What good timing!  You must have been thrilled!  :ecsmile

Is this the photo you showed us on the eagle chat the other day?  It truly is lovely and you were so fortunate to have captured it.

Thanks.

jdarnall, lucky you were to able to snap such a beautiful photo of the eagle.  One certainly sees many eagles in Juneau.

I recall seeing them waiting for the scraps from a salmon BBQ. There about 12 of them lined up atop the telephone poles across the street.

On our recent trip to Hornby Island, we spent a couple of nights just north of Victoria on the water near Saanichton.  I heard an eagle and was lucky enough to get a few pictures of it.  I could see him from the jigga (rv) doorstep and get some pix and then walked closer.  When I went outside of the jigga, an immature bald eagle flew very low right over my head!!!!!  Awesome.   Anyway, here are a few of the pictures of the eagle.  They were taken on June 13, 2010.
