Little Tribune Bay Nest - 2014 Season
« on: May 20, 2014, 09:41:54 PM »
This topic is for discussion, photos & videos of the Little Tribune Bay Nest, which can be found in the southwest corner of Little Tribune Bay.
Last year this nest was inactive. The thread for last year's obs is here.

Booni had suspected the existence of this nest for at least two years when I finally found it in 2012; it is in such a scraggly little tree, it was easy to overlook on my previous searches. The observations from that year are here

On May 14 I paddled past this nest in the early evening, after floating past the Dunlop Point nest and Nest 25, which I both found occupied.

By the time I got to this territory the sun was low and everything was silhouettes... But I could still make out an adult eagle on the nest!
Looking down at something... Or someone?

Feeding motions?



A few minutes later, the eagle just sits panting in the late sun.

This is really the most unlikely little tree for a nest...  :heart
