Here's a link to a story in the local newspaper today about our local wildlife rehab place - North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre, which "is preparing this year to celebrate 25 years of assisting injured and abandoned wildlife"http://www.bclocalnews.com/vancouver_island_central/parksville_qualicumbeachnews/news/82308172.html This facility boasts the largest indoor flight cage in North America and started out close to the Denman ferry terminal in Buckley Bay (jumping off point for Hornby Island) before moving to its present location.  This article gives an interesting account of how the centre developed, and their particular interest in bald eagles and bears.

Hello Carl,

Thank you for posting the links to the two peregrine falcon nests in Pittsburgh.  A few of our members do follow and post about the two nests.  A lot of drama and activity  :ecsmile  

As well as the two you mentioned, we have threads for them and several other cams that our members follow, located here: Other Wildlife Cams

Many thanks and please join in posting about the peregrine falcons.

Hi there

I started watching the Hornby Island nest at the end of Florida eagle watching season which runs from October through May.  Fir five months I spent most of my time watching a pair of eagles near the Anclote river set up their nest, mate, lay eggs and raise two young eagles that fledged just before Mothers day.

http://www.youtube.com/user/andreapicoestrada

I created to photo documentaries called Anclote eagles and Anclote eagles 2 that cover the entire 2009- 2010 season of this mated pair that have been together for seven years.  This pair has been in the same area for seven years.  On the 4th of July weekend the tree fell down with the nest in it, fortunately well after the two young had fledged.

I am hoping a new adventure begins nest fall, what will the pair do?  Will they rebuild in the same area?  I grew very attached to this family.  the St. pete Times wrote a story about what eagles mean to the general public, it's a very nicely written article:

It is called "Eagles Forge Spiritual Bonds with Countless People"

http://www.tampabay.com/news/environment/wildlife/eagles-forge-spiritual-bonds-with-countless-people/1100382

I think the article is very relevant to the outpouring of grief over Phoenix's passing.  I can certainly understand everyone's attachment, as I have been there too.

I hope you enjoy my two eagle tributes, they took five months to photograph (twenty hours a week) and 12 hours to produce!

Thanks!

Andrea Pico Estrada Webb

Andrea, thank you for sharing the link with us.  Many people will want to look at your cam project, I'm sure.  It's a shame that the tree and the nest came down.  Hopefully, that pair of eagles will build a new nest nearby. 

According to Doug, Mom and Dad rebuilt their nest rather quickly after the Hornby nest came down several years ago. Maybe that will happen with "your" Florida eagle pair, too.   :eclove

I fixed my link to the story in the St. Pete Times about eagle watching and why it means so much to so many different people....

Sorry I had the wrong link before!

This site is one of my favorites. If I remember to go here, I can always keep things in perspective:  http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html  It's the Astronomy Picture of the Day from NASA.

Thank you gzebear, great link! We, and our problems, certainly seem insignificant when we view the universe. Nice perspective!

Here is a link to the Animal Rescue Site. There's a purple rectangle on the home page which says "Click Here To Give - it's FREE!" When you click on it, sponsors pay for food and care for animals. I put it on my Favorites bar and just click on it every day when I go on the internet.
