Wonderful to see what you see, Madrona.  The photo's you took are fantastic!  Love the plumage of young eagles as they transition through their years to adulthood.

An update on the Simm's nest in Courtenay BC.  I haven't visited this nest often enough to know if there is more than the one eaglet. I have only seen one. She was busy eating something while a parent stood watch.
   The tree suffered winter damage and got quite a pruning. But the nest stayed intact. It is a large nest.

Linused, thank you for letting us know that the Simms nest and tree are still there and that you saw an eaglet eating while a parent watched.  Good News!

One of our chat room and forum members, slavelakedonna - released an eagle the other day!  Below are links to a video and account of that release.

What a wonderful story and beautiful experience for you Donna!  You must be thrilled to bits and I am so happy for both you and the eagle.
